On Adobe announces final Camera Raw update for CS6 owners article (481 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Maybe it's a generational thing but I'm amazed how many people make a point that it's just ten bucks a month--as if this will never change. "Dear Photographer, We're thrilled to announce some new, not very useful features. To support the cost of developing these exciting new enhancements, we're increasing the cost of a CC subscription...."

Of course this could never happen because the cost of things you pay for every month never goes up.

Are you a photographer or a Doctor?

tkbslc: If you guys want to get outraged about something, why not the cost of cancer drugs or something important? This is just software. It is not life or death. If you don't like Adobe's pricing terms you just don't buy it. What's the problem?

This subject is not about high priced Cancer drugs!! It's about adobe's Greed!!!

nycgazelle: I am entirely supportive of the subscription based model. I don't feel a need to try and pirate anything. Two Latte's at my fancy coffee shop are more than a fair monthly payment for software I use daily to make money. There is no excuse to pirate software anymore like this when its so affordable. Their developers need to be paid too guys! Jeez. Go F yourselves.

Well not everybody sucks down expensive lattes! Adobe has assimilated you! You've been suck up!

On Sony reportedly shifting focus to full-frame cameras article (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

M DeNero: This could be a bad move for Sony. They are the leader in the relatively new MILC market, with serious potential to replace DSLR in the entry-level and enthusiast market. Also, they are leaders in premium non-interchangable lens cameras. Sony should refocus on those two areas and totally dominate them. It's naive to think Canon doesn't have the technology to produce sensors with DR comparable to others' (Sony isn't the only high DR sensor). What is more likely is what Canon has always said - the constituencies that matter most to them have been satisfied with Canon sensors. And so Canon has been conserving cash to maximize camera division profits. Recently that has begun to change, with even Canon diehards becoming frustrated with perceived lack of improvement. So, if Canon does respond and start introducing high DR sensors, Sony will hit a brick wall with the new focus on full-frame. And don't talk about mirrorless full-frame. Few advanced amateurs or pros want it. It's a niche.

Bullcrap! Many Pros use Sony's MILC's! Try Phillip Bloom, He's a Pros Pro! Small compact FF Mirrorless is what may pros want! That's why Sony is starting to focus on it. You make statements like Sony's Marketing Research dept. is stupid. The video market LOVE's Sony's FF mirrorless cameras. Nikon is in trouble, and Canon is loosing ground to Sony in the lens department, let alone there sensor's are crap, there tech features are way behind the times, and canon's cinema division is also in trouble..

gskolenda: MY God Panasonic!! This is a Killer camera, But Why, did you not include a Headphone Jack?? Especially that you provided a Microphone Jack!! If I plug in a external Mic, I want to hear the level that it's recording!!! This makes No Sense!

This is a deal breaker for me! The Sony RX-10 II is still on my radar. Yeah, I know the lens is longer on the FZ300, But I use a camera for mostly video.

I can't believe it!

Sorry, This camera is Now a Real Deal Breaker, if it has audio limiters. That means it has poor Pre-amps. I could record audio on an external recorder like any of the zoom's . It's also very important to me to hear the audio level, You can't see background noise, fans, air ducts, motors, or whatever. I like good audio as much as video.

It could end up as a decent B-Roll camera, for me the image quality, Lens has to be very good, we'll see when the reviews start coming out.

Quite frankly, I could care less about DPRK! The standards for this forum just went down a FEW MORE NOTCHES! The Video was pretty bad quality, lot's of lens distortion, poor focus, very bad camera movement, Can't believe that No stabilizer was used, Good God! If this was edited, that also is real bad!

My only reason to watch this was to see how it was shot and edited, hoping to see a documentary style, I did, a very bad one I'll give you credit for teaching me what not to do!

Adrian Harris: RX100 Mk4 appears far noisier than my Mk1, which is a great disappointment as I was hoping the new sensor was going to be a leap forward :o(
I would like an EVF but am not prepared to accept worse photo quality!

I think your crazy! DO you really think that Sony would release a camera that is worse than three models ago? Get real!

onemoreguy: 75% more expensive than fz1000 today

Ok Biological_Viewfinder, I disagree about Panasonic, I love Sony's Cameras, I have the RX-10 and Love it! I had both the GH-3 and GH-4, outstanding cameras and very good lens's. My only reason for having the RX-10 was, by accident, my GH-3-GH-4 and lens's were stolen, too much cost to replace, and took a chance on trying the RX-10 as an interim camera. Now I'm sold on this camera and the design of having one lens fitted to the sensor. But, I loved my Panasonic GH-3 and the GH-4.

In reply to:

John Nall: I'm curious to know if the new RX camera modifications will result in longer battery life, quicker focusing, faster image processing or turn-on. I have both the 10 and 100 mk3 and found these items bothersome, while taking 7,500 shots during a one-month European vacation. Whew! my trigger finger hurts.

John, Well, I think you will see a little faster focus, and faster Image Processing, but I'm afraid the battery life is going to be the same, possibly a little worse. The New RX-10 II Uses the same Sony battery-NPW-F50, I think that's it, and it has the same amount of power. I love my RX10, My Main gripe with it is the battery life.

In reply to:

electronbee: Only thing I don't like is the 1" sensor marketing ploy. The 1" sensor was originally devloped to replace a 1" imaging tube and the sensor is nowhere near an inch on any dimension. Ok, I'm off my pedastal.

Good! Stay off! I love the RX-10 and the 1" sensor is absolutely phenomenal! It's the images that count, not the dimentions!

There are 2 areas that I hope the New RX-10 II improve on, A little better low light, and better battery life. But if not, I don't care, I will still get it Pre order coming B&H!

This Sony Camera the RX-10 II is absolutely Fantastic, the new features alone just blow away the most of the competition. Believe it or not this is a pro camera! I have the RX-10, for those of you who don't or haven't, The RX-10 is so good, the lens is superb!

Always a clean sensor, the 1" sensor at 20 mp, is so good. This is what I'm waiting for! What a wedding Camera this is, Stick a fork in Canon, they are done! All these features plus superb glass, 4k, Super Slo-mo, for $1,300 US I'm all over it!

On Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge article (732 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fabio Amodeo: First point: mirrorless (or whatever they call them) are up. True, more in Asia, quite in Europe, not so much in the USA. But still true.
Second point: mirrorless are earning money. True, maybe. The industry has gone from “with these numbers next year we'll go bankrupt” to “with these nunbers we might survive”.
Third point: all mirrorless are unfinished work. What they still need is a huge advance in processing power/reading speed of the sensor. Let's talk when the work is finished (if the cameras will be able to disperse the heat involved).

Excuse me Fabio, but your wrong about Mirrorless sales in the USA, That's what this article is about, Hello!!

In reply to:

mailman88: I'm not riding the Sony wave. I need affordable options at 400mm and over.

That's OK, but the majority don't have your needs, that's why Sony is seeing a surge in sales, DSLR's are declining fast and will continue to do so!

On Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 article (352 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArchiDeos: Wow. I've seen to much bitterness on the comments. In respect to all the Pros and Newbies like me, If you don't want the specs of the Camera then don't buy it. That's simple. But as they say we can be all have an opinion on the net. I like the concept but that doesn't mean I will buy the camera. Just for the fact that you can shoot continues shooting for 1 hour or 30 minutes video is a plus compare to the one mostly talking about. Hoping they can do the software upgrade for RAW both video & still if they can.. Waiting for MARK II. Have a great day everyone.

Don't want the specs? That's are point here, There is very few, for an outrageous price! You are right, the sales will be very poor!

In reply to:

Donnie G: Someone commented here that the Canon XC10 is a prosumer PowerShot camera, and I agree. The camera is everything that a PowerShot built for pros on a budget should be. I won't try to comment on its image quality or even on whether it will be accepted by the target user base until I can get my hands on one and check it out for myself. What impresses me the most at this time are the design and ergonomics. I think Canon has made a very user friendly camera that, like all PowerShots, can be picked up and used by anyone regardless of their skill level. If all of this proves to be true in practice, then I will definitely buy one for myself by next spring. It would be the first small sensor camera that I would consider to be a compliment to my DSLR system and the way I work. As first impressions go, I really like what I see in the XC10. :))

Wow you must work for Canon! LOL! You can't be serious about Pros buying this camera. Good Luck!

Canon, Listen UP!!

It would be wise for you to learn how a small company like Black Magic Design, has progressed into a very cool company, With there key drive being design!

This next Camera from them is going to make a serious dent into the market.
This the kind of forward thinking that people want to see Canon!

Your design is based on how can we give cutting edge features, and protect our other products profit margins, plus you can only ride that Lens program for so long!

Ok check this camera out, it is just outstanding! I already have mine on order.
Comes out in July, for $995.00 No, it does not have 4K, but, the 1080P form this camera is so good, it will trump 4K down reser's. See the specs.
