Jose Ernesto Passos: Unfortunately the market is concentrating and one option is going to disappear from the market. Sony has been doing lots of mistakes after it missed the LED technology in TVs. In the camera business it overstretched the number of camera models. Probably this decision was supported by the some major consulting company.
The fact is that Samsung may destroy the consumer electronics business in general. Today it has achieved such a huge economy of scale that dwarfs any competitor.
Canon in no way is a competitor for Samsung. Samsung dominates too many technologies today. If we take a look how it is starting to move in the camera business, unless there is an anti-trust action there will only one. I don't like a market with a small number of choices...

Look up the reviews at B&H that are end users that purchased the camera. They don't get paid, and B&H does not filter there reviews.

Have you read any of the reviews at all? Everyone who has used the NX1 has nothing but High praise for it!

That Half-Baked-Camera, is very, very state of the art, and is my next camera! Samsung has done an outstanding job on designing the NX1! I don't care what you say or think. Samsung are still better TV's than Sony's, and I'm a Sony fan!

SADJOE: You do know every TV comes with a color adjustment, like our custom white balance adjustment in our cameras! I don't like Panasonic TV's and the majority of the public doesn't either, I have been a Sony man for a long time, had a number of Sony big screens, but I have to admit, Samsung TV's really Rock, they have better TV's than Sony does now, and LG is nice, but I have heard they have a lot of small problems, what seems to be on every new model.

CameraLabTester: Adobe keeps on being the leading edge because of constant innovations and the ability to allow third party software to enhance it's capabilities via plug ins.

And patents.

Yes, patents.

(you can't touch this... dum, the-dum, dum-dum)

.

The last decent tool they added to the program was the healing brush, the rest are Hype features!

Stuart001: I can't believe people are so negative about something that no one is forcing them to use. Does anyone still use 3Mp cameras? Dial up internet? A mobile phone powered by a 6volt, wet-cell battery? Watch VHS movies?

Subscription-based, downloadable software is inevitable. Why? Because we now have the means to quickly transfer large amounts of data over the Internet. We don't need to put it on CDs or DVDs any more. And the subscription model is actually cheaper than the old method of buying PS 4,5 or 6 and Lightroom, unless you are happy updating just once a decade and using outdated software.

Some of the new things in PS CC are terrific. Access to camera raw as a filter within Photoshop by itself saves me hours per week, and more than pays for the annual subscription. This is true even if you are not a pro, unless you value your own time at zero.

Don't like it? Don't buy it. Or invent something better. (And I don't work for Adobe, and I'm not a hip young tech head-I'm almost 60.)

Outdated my friend, is in the mind of the user! One may be quite satisfied with the tools he has.

madeinxyz: In all fairness, I wish want to point out at a time where so many people were using pirated ADOBE CS software. For anyone who has a clean conscience, good for you, but even you probably knew someone who hadn't had a clean vest.

Another thing: Many companies that I worked for tried not to upgrade their CS for as long as they could, because of course, it costs money. Sometimes, I meet people working in companies that still use CS3. Which is their right, of course.

Adobe has to grow as a company and deliver more products that can enable artists to do even more. Technology is rapidly changing and so are the skills that handle technology. For Adobe it is alpha and omega to be ready to face those changes and expectations. A subscription based fee model allows them to better calculate investments.

Mr. Baddger1952, Just because there are occasional users doesn't mean They should give up certain features that are not in other lower featured versions!

TheDreamingWatchman: A lot of people seem to believe that - if you buy and own software - you can use it forever; or at least for the next 25 years.

Sorry to be the one to break the news: You can't!

In 10 years your current computer will be old and retired or slow and useless or dead without chance of resurrection.

You will have a new computer and the new computer will have a new OS.

And there's a good chance your current Photoshop (or Capture One or whatever you own) will not work with the new OS because the OS will be new and your software will be old. Real old.

But don’t worry! You can still put the box with your software on a shelf and tell your grandchildren: This it Photoshop (or Caputure One) from 2014.
I bought it! I own it! It's mine! (My precious!)

And if only I could find an Emulator for Win7 (or OS X) for my Win 14 (or OS XIV) I could show you, what I can do with this little darling.
I’m sure it still works like a charm.

25 years from now, we won't even have desktops, or laptops or keyboards, or mice, and most of the software will be free!

gordonpritchard: I don't understand the anger.
The subscription model made PShop affordable for me.
$10 a month vs about $1200 for the standalone app.
What's your problem?

You have NO Choice! They can raise the price as they want! If you quit paying the monthly Fee you Lose, and have Nothing, not one version of software period, I find it hard that you are blind to the reason that there is an overwhelming opinion of people that HATE Adobe for what they have done. And if adobe doesn't care about the average customer and only the high end clientele, good riddens Bring on the Competition!!!

Tom Hix: Wow. What a bunch of nabobs of negativism. If ya don't like Adobe products, don't use them and find something else or shoot film and work in the darkroom. Adobe must be doing something right as they are still around for 25 years.

I wish they were gone or bought out by someone else, I'm sick opf there Bullsh__ policies!

MnTony: OMG - this whining is still going on? Folks, the adoption rate for CC was much faster than Adobe predicted. They aren't going back. Buy into it or don't - you have the power of your choice. But whining every time Adobe is mentioned is getting very old. Alternatives may pop up, and competition is always a good thing.

Great move on then, What you call whining is alerting competition to the markets desire, NO ADOBE!

Adobe shmobe! They need some real competition! There Greedy subscription service is utter Greed and nothing else, they got you by the gonads if you want Adobe products, good products, absolutely, customer service, and distribution and pricing, the worst! I'm at CS6 Production Suite, Will never upgrade. I'm seriously on the lookout for competition, and there is room for some!

Horshack: This is all fine and good except that a MFT drone @ f/2.8 is really equivalent to a full-frame drone @ f/5.6. I like the shallowest DOF possible when my drone is invading the privacy of my neighbor's yard.

I would think that you would want f8 for sharpness and detail, in that neighbors yard

Prairie Pal: At least Pentax has a road map, honors it, and is transparent enough to disclose it to their loyal customer base. ...Nikon!

Ricoh will become the Packard of the Photography world. Margins are getting slimmer, market is getting saturated, and global sales are down, second year in a row. May take a little longer, but they will go bye bye! Might be a good investment as a collectors piece.
