Peet Venter: We may not like it, but this is the future of ALL software. rather get use to it. Adobe, let me have it please, Why kick against facts, why try and dry the oceans with a plastic bucket. Guys, in 12 months all of you have come around. This is not nice, not good and not right. but this is the way of our brave new world.
I very seriously doubt this will be the model for all software. Adobe MIGHT get away with it for Photoshop if there are enough commercial users. It's not going to work with software widely distributed to all users.
That's it, I'm switching to Android. This is the app I've been waiting for and the only reason I got a smartphone.
nekrosoft13: is there facial recognition?
The boxed version may not be available yet, but I did get an e-mail from B&H that it will be available soon. You can sign up to receive an e-mail notification when it is.Kodak Photo CD? What format are the images in? If they're not a standard jpg or tiff I would think Kodak supplied software to convert them, no?
Marcin 3M: Any news about CaptureOne competitive upgrade from LR?
If & when LR goes to CC only, then I'll move to an alternative. Right now it's still a standalone license and I'm going to continue using it.
johnsong: It is not available as an individual license at this time

There, that wasn't so hard was it?
sehmuzb: The best alternative to the Cloud version of the Photoshop is the CS6. I see no reason to upgrade it and if you are looking for a better alternative to the Photoshop Cloud, I'm sure you can get the old version cheaper than paying a one year of rent to Adobe.
I hope that more people go this route so Adobe brings back the stand alone option.
I missed the deadline to upgrade to CS6 from 4, so Photoshop is dead to me now since I'm opposed to paying a monthly fee. I'll use CS4 until it's no longer supported on my pc.
garyknrd: Has anyone used Photoline? Since this pay by the month does not interest me I searched and found this.Sounds promising.
Thanks, I'm going to check that out.
plasnu: One question, why they do this?
One answer: money.
Adrian Van: As I have CS4, can I still buy an upgrade to CS6 now as downloadable software without going cloud monthy membership. In other words, does this mean for CS7 (relabelled CC) that we cannot buy "CS6 only upgrades" except through cloud CC starting now? This program is starting next month in last paragraph of this announcement. What can we do this month before it happens or how long do we have? The regular monthy fees for CC seem very steep at $49 per month = $600 per year, however this covers 5 programs. Every 2 years you have basically paid the equivalent of the CS Design Standard package. What about if we only want 1 or 2 programs what is the fees? Can Adobe comment on our current options?
No more upgrades for CS4 and older versions. The upgrade pricing for older versions ran out at the end of 2012. Only CS5 owners can upgrade.
Amadou Diallo: Hi everyone,I'll be speaking with an Adobe rep in a few moments about this move. If you have any specific questions you'd like answered please reply to this post.
Let them know they'll lose even more customers if they do the same thing to Lightroom.
I sure as &^(! am sick of paying monthly fees!! CS4 will be my last version of PS.
SHood: Now we just need an iPhone that creates RAW files and we'll be set. Then we won't have to deal with the horrible JPG engines in phones.
Bad idea. The overwhelming majority of phone snappers share it immediately and don't want to process a raw first. Yes, they can leave raw off by default but when it inadvertently gets turned on they won't know what to do.
Ian: It looks like we've killed Bryan Adams server, Andy Summers site is definitely NSFW, and Jeff Bridges has created what is possibly the most annoying site I have ever been to. Still trying to figure out how to view even one of his photos...
Completely agree with Ian; NSFW is absolutely legitimate. I'd hate to have brought up Andy Summers' site during my lunch break and have my boss or a female worker glimpse one of his nudes. It has nothing to do with being prudish and everything to do with having images on the screen that, right or wrong, could be misconstrued as well as breaking the rules at my workplace. If you work at a workplace with an open policy and women that aren't going to take offense if you have nude images on your screen, more power to you. Most places of business do not have such an open policy.
Anepo: Anyone else here that hates phone manufacturers calling the led LIGHT "led flash" ?
It's a flash that uses LED. What is there to hate?
SteB: " will be available from May 2013 at a retail price of £39.99"
If someone can tell me where I can get them at £39.99 I'll put in a bulk order?
You want to order the docks in bulk?
EasyClick: One issue: PICKPOCKETS!
It's too easy to unzip the bag and steal the content from behind....
There are other backpacks that only unzip on the surface against your back, so problem solved. There's no such thing as one backpack or bag that will be perfect for every situation.
WrightStuff: What happens if one happens to fall backwards on black ice or some other slippery surface. What happens to the equipment? This can happen and it did when I was doing a shoot in our winter. Thank God I carry a camera case and my equipment was fine. I will never buy a backpack to carry my equipment in.
What happens if you're struck by lightning? What happens if you blow a tire and the car rols? What happens if you're mugged? Anything can happen no matter what you're carrying gear in. If I'm walking/hiking over a long distance, a backpack is far more convenient to me than a bag. On the other hand, a shoulder bag is more appropriate for a location shoot. You pick the gear most appropriate for the shoot and plan for as much as you can, try to reduce the what-ifs.
windmillgolfer: This looks likes a strong and high capacity backpack but the price seems very high. I guess if you've invested $1,000s on kit then this would be appropriate for the 1% of your time you might have this lot with you. Meanwhile, I'll just keep the LX5, mini-tripod, 18mm LWA52 and EVF1 in my jacket pockets :-)
I don't understand why point & shoot owners are replying. This product obviously isn't for you. It's like someone looking for a family sedan complaining on a review about a 2-seater sports car.
Photato: Without mini lenses is kind of pointless the effort to make it small.Would have been nice to have a 22mm pancake to go with this, like the EOS-M has.The only really small lens, the 40mm pancake, doesn't cut it for the EF-S bodies like this one for general photography.
Too bad Canon decided to remain stagnant with the sensor. I was expecting them to start moving towards larger pixels.
It's still an APS-C sensor, so the lenses can't be smaller than EF-S.
gpsgps: Add a twist & swivel screen to it and it's mine. Otherwise I'll patiently wait until competition learns to instal them and I'll forget the Canon name.
There's the Rebel line, as well as the 60D, if you want a swivel LCD.
