Make more (and better) images . . .
Simi: When Apple announced that they would stop Aperture (which I was happy with) and make "Photos", I knew it was time to change.After a short search and some trials, I went to Capture One - and I really don´t regret it. Thanks Apple ;-)
Thanks, Simi. Sorry to have missed your reply. I have bought Capture One, the upgrade actually as I had v5 sitting on my hard drive. I'm very happy that I've avoided having to use LR; I'm finding C1 as powerful as LR for the features that I need.
I'm interested in doing this. I really don't want to join Adobe's ecosystem. But how do you use Capture One as catalogue of your images? And how do you name your imports, since C1 seems to do things differently from Aperture in that respect?
Lindagitt: I agonized over what to do in terms of Aperture and couldn't make a decision. I then upgraded to Yosemite on my Mac, not realizing that I then would not be able to use Aperture at all! Ticked off! However, it did push me to test run the new iPhoto and IMHO (not a professional photographer), using iPhoto as opposed to Lightroom was like driving a go-cart instead of a car. iPhoto is great for very minor changes but Lightroom is leagues better than iPhoto. Sorry to lose Aperture and sorry to see Apple dumbing down even further.
You can continue to use Aperture with Yosemite. I'm still doing so.
McDuff: I've signed up and uploaded 2 images to try it out. But it will not accept RAF files nor PEF files. I am advised to convert the Raw files to DNG . . .
That would be great. I must admit that I signed up without realising that it was in beta.

That's another great set. I particularly like the ones of your grandparents and Eldred.
Thanks for posting these. We spent a weekend at Cley 3 weeks ago and walked over that bridge several times. They are a great collection and I look forward to Part 2.
Hank3152: Great shot, interesting
Robert,........much too small for a military base which needs a tarmac, support buildings and hangars, i.e., have you ever seen an aerial shot of Nellis AFB? Google it.Judging by the housing and access I'd say it's a small private airfield for affluent residents.
It's much bigger than it needs to be for private use. Nellis AFB is a particularly large airfield because it has to accommodate a great number of different aircraft for the Flag series of exercises, as well as the normal, resident units' machines. I've flown from many airfields that were about this size, some British, some US. It seems to have military-style dispersals on 3 corners.
Tord S Eriksson: @McDuff,
Love shots you got there! The colours looks a bit muted, but that seem to be the way with the K-5 IIs, even with DPR's comparative test.
I switched from K-5 to D600, while the wife switched from her K-5 to a K-30, which under most situations beat the K-5's performance, not least AF.
I take most shots with my Nikon V1, though, and she with her OM-D.
Thanks, Tord. The colour saturation is probably my choice, through Aperture's RAW development engine. Nikon is very tempting, but the K-5IIs is still the complete, compact and weatherproof package for me.
I have replaced my K-5 with a K-5IIs and I am very happy with the result. None of my images show moiré, so that is not a problem, and the sharpness has improved perceptibly, along with the AF. It is an excellent camera which will hold up well to competition for many years.Here is a close-up with the DA 35mm 2.8 Limited:
jon404: Images aside, what kind of airplane is that black 'Bad Kitty'?
I think that it's a P-38 Lightning. See <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_P-38_Lightning>.
I'd like to buy this camera, selling my X10 and X100 to do so. But I won't if I can't use RAW with Apple's Aperture. What's the deal with Fuji and RAW files now?
It's not an "excellent response", I'm afraid. It's daft: the photographer should not be loading her whole year's expenses on 4 months of wedding photography. And if it doesn't last the year, it's not surprising that she has to diversify.
A farmer sows crops that will sell, not merely what he wants to grow; then when he has harvested the summer crop he looks for a winter crop etc . . .
And it ends with the silliest of "I'm insulted" lines . . .
