On Adobe CC Announcements: What you need to know article (181 comments in total)

What is worse, Adobe help does not really help.

I changed my computer, I cannot get this Creative Cloud installed correctly. It shows me a nice empty grey box, and nothing more. Lightroom works only half-way, because it has authorization problem...

I wrote two emails in the last two days two support, and you guess, no reaction.
They do not give a damn, and I am cut off from my tools exactly at the moment I need them.

And that is something you really need to know about Adobe Cloud.

Before, Adobe charged in Europe 1000 EUR for full, not upgrade, version of PS (while in USA it was 600 USD).

Now it is something like 12 EUR/month (vs 10 USD). It is still not fair, but barely acceptable.

Owning one of those "new" Hasselblads is a clear sign the owner is not a photographer.
I would feel embarrassed using one. I could think of an excuse for using almost anything else - but these.

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera article (921 comments in total)
In reply to:

jibee: Last year I rode on the hype of the Df (Pure Photography teasers and all), and I regrettably ended up disappointed. Thom Hogan said it best - it was a D4 Sensor with D600/D610 Focus points in a FM2 body powered by a D3200 battery. I could probably understand why some people would like it, but I don't.

I see Fuji's track record (in producing great cameras, and in providing firmware updates even for older models), and I'm definitely more confident that what's coming on the 28th will be top notch, something worth breaking the bank for.

It's looking to be something I can buy with my heart AND my head. I used to have a D80. This is looking to be my next camera.

arbuz:
Fuji added new functionalities, like focus peaking, or handling some features of the lenses, which were unavailable, when the cameras appeared.

Benarm: whatever you do, don't give your kids a mirror-flipping camera, by the time they grow up, those cameras will be like a rotary telephone

You know, there are still guys taking pictures with large format field or monorail cameras. Even with some wet plate crazy techniques... On average, They know better, what to do with their gear than those with the most modern stuff.
There are still companies than manufacture that "old" gear...

In reply to:

Mark Roberts: Has anyone been ASKING for a middle ground, or is this just a push for another proprietary standard that Adobe can license?

It has already started. When I bought Panasonic GF1, it was not supported by Aperture yet. I thought I convert the files to DNG... but I still could not open them in Aperture.

DNG as Digital Negative is OK.
If it is lossy, it is no longer a Digital Negative in my opinion. The idea of Digital Negative is to retain all information.

They should have renamed it completely.

In reply to:

chlamchowder: The highest shutter speeds not being available at wide apertures is a little disappointing, because one major use of high shutter speeds is to let you shoot the lens wide open in bright sunlight without overexposure.

Unfortunately, there are technical limitations on how fast leaf shutter can work.

But there is solution. ND filters.

That is why there is even a built-in ND8 filter in Fuji X100 - VERY convenient I must admit.

I am sorry. There is no loyalty which would force me to buy that monstrosity they just created.

Leica is expensive - but it is at least different from anything else. But this is an externally pimped up copy of NEX...

somehow I started to think about big fluffy pink cadillac.... this is no camera - it is jewellery, and of poor taste...

When I saw the headline, I felt something incredible might be happening - but when I saw those photos, and read the news - I understood the "incredible" can have also a negative meaning.

In reply to:

raztec: Great to see competitiion in this market. Sony and Fuji are really pushing the envelope to provide serious photographers what they've always wanted: An affordable full-frame rangefinder style camera.

Hopefully in the next few years we'll have the same but only with a good viewfinder, interchangeable lenses, and excellent MF capabilities.

Nikon and Canon should wake up and stop playing the marketing game and get their engineers to produce the cameras that serious photographers demand.

The way of using. Intended to be small and unobtrusive. Street photography camera.

In reply to:

micdair: So nice and so out-of-my-budget, unfortunately. :-(

I wonder if Fuji has some plans to come up with the model from the lower segment - to compete with 5 and 3 NEXes or EOS M...

You can have leaf shutter in an interchangeable lens camera. Hasselblad 500cm I am just looking on is a proof of that. It is just not so practical in smaller formats, as lenses would have to be much bigger, and much more expensive...

I wonder if it is possible to put a leaf shutter in camera in place, where they put focal shutter right now...

In reply to:

Uaru: Fuji X mount, please.

True - but if it is native, it is less bother. On top of that, it could have additional pluses, like reporting the correct EXIF data, etc.

BTW if we are talking adapters, for many APS-C mounts there are tilt, shift and sometimes tilt and shift adapters for glass like M42... It is even cheaper solution then Samyang - but of course, it has its drawbacks...

In reply to:

glacierpete: Here is an news mag article (in German) that mentions a price of 900 Euro and it will have no a low pass filter.
http://www.heise.de/foto/meldung/X-E1-Die-kleine-Schwester-der-X-Pro-1-1699464.html

Just 100 euro less of what X-Pro costs in Japan.

I just love European prices...

X100 has its own unique merits thanks to big sensor (which X10 lacks) and leaf shutter (which X-Pro/XE lack).

I didtched D700 if favor of Fuji, but I have not gave up on X100. I still find it an exceptional camera.

In reply to:

Dr GP: Seems to me this is a more functional version of the X1Pro? Smaller, faster focus? (OVF is useless in anycase because it seems to amplify focus issues).

Any benefit of X1 Pro over XE1?

One benefit, I already have X-Pro - selling it now and get XE1 is pointless;-)

The point is, I already took some wonderful photos with X-Pro - and XE1 is yet not on the market...

In reply to:

JohnMatrix: The spec lists says the XE-1 has face detection AF. Does the X-Pro1 have the same? thx

I do not fully agree with mcm49. There are times, that I know I want to have focus on faces - and in fast changing environment it is a help.
