On the D810, i use the flat profile (with ADR might even be better). This gives more accurate view of clipping. Most prographers use standard or even worse vivid. This will lead you to underexposing images by 1-2 stops.

Ohh...owned by mr jpino79. Im sure you just use a camera phone from 1998 because you are so good. Im so jealous of you. I should just sell all my gear and hire someone like you to take pictures for me. -----Great way to stay on the topic by the way.

I respect Olympus and now richo for pushing nikon and canon to be better. Olympus had the first dust reduction system now standard on all DSLRs. In body IS, Art filters, "digital" lenses made to work with thick sensor glass. You heard of something called liveview? Olympus had it and it was called a "gimmick". How about mirrorless? Olympus and Pentax has some of the best weather sealing on the market. In the past few months we see use of the in body IS to provide higher resolution and full color at every pixel. Its amazing they are able to innovate with such small budgets. Canon is still using the same sensor technology for the past 5 years. Canon and Nikon have great cameras, but they lack much innovation. --Nikon Owner

Im a pentax fanboy? I have owned the D700, two D800s, two D800e, and now a single D810. I also owned a canon 5D mark II and lots of olympus gear. Good try to discredit my opinion by assuming im a fanboy.

CLS lighting system? That is old technology. I am unable to think of anything really new canon and Nikon has come out with in quite a while. Nikon cant even manage to add electronic shutter to anything other than mirror lockup. No custom delayed shutter (only options are 1 2 3 secs). I can go on, these are just a few of the basics they could do with a firmware if they wanted to.

Mssimo: Just confirmed that HDR images can also be merged into pano. Welcome the HDR Raw Pano.

I noticed overall the Lightroom pano is not as cleaver as the photoshop one. It works without HDR right?

I noticed that the pano still retailed the -10 to +10 exposure latitude vs the typical -5 to +5 of single raw files.

What is your conclusion on the image quality?

My workflow was, create HDR of every frame of the pano, then create the Pano from a series of HDR images. Would this be different from creating 3 panos then trying to merge them into a HDR?

Marksphoto: Any useful new features for wedding photographers?

Not really interested in stitching and hdr here. We need a more robust book module, clone feature from selected images, maybe a good website building module... you know, the stuff that will get us through our workflow on the daily basis.

I would say performance is the biggest upgrade a wedding photographer could ever wish for and this version has it. Now uses GPU. Big deal on laptops that don't have the best CPUs. Some functions are over 7000% faster now.

If you do not see Adobe Lightroom CC on your download list:

Try signing out of the Creative Cloud desktop application (Gear, Preferences, Sign Out), then sign back in.

This worked for me.

Mssimo: Almost the same price as the lens baby velvet. What one would you pick?

$499 for black, $599 for the silver vs $799 for this. Street prices? Lens baby tends to go for retail/msrp vs instant discounts from chinese manufactures/vendors. So, yeah, almost fits the bill for me. $300 in the optics world is not very much. Just repaired a lens for $700.

Mssimo: I have the spyder 4 elite. I just wanted to note they never update software/drivers. I will not buy another once since I do expect product updates to fix bugs and add features. I also did not feel it did an amazing job but I cant compare it with anything. Also, they try to limit the install to one workstation by giving you another serial number.

As far as using it on other computers, you may be violating the end user license agreement. Do they care? Not sure but you might get a nasty lawyer letter from them after posting about it in a public forum. Please share if you seen otherwise.
