Great. I will train a dog to press a device that will press the camera button on command. When I will take pictures of all celebrities and pay no royalty to them since a dog took the picture.

mh2000: When someone grabs my camera and snaps photos that end up on my memory card, I do not consider them my creative property. It doesn't matter that I am the one who owns the camera. Actually, I think it would be unethical to claim credit for photos someone else took.

He credited the monkey.

If only I could use my numerous Canon lenses and retain auto-focus, I would buy it in an instant

The more I think about it, the more I like it. It can be perfect street photography camera. I can take pictures behind me. Leave it in a room and see what's happening in that room. Put it on a long pol and take interesting pictures. Take a picture around a corner.

On Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1 Hands-on Preview preview (353 comments in total)

This should be a fantastic second camera for Canon shooters. The only reason I didn't buy mirrorless camera is that I already invested in many Canon lenses. I was not about to buy more incompatible lenses. This solves this problem.

The message to Canon should be that they are badly loosing to Nikon, producing inferior products with higher prices. Their legacy lenses what's keeping them from becoming Blackberry of cameras.

jpr2: NO, I'd not buy FF as replacement for my 7d = APS-C offers a crucial reach advantage over FF when one is uising longer FLs lenses; Canon's decision to abandon APS-H format in their Pro-line is a huge mistake from the point of view of wildlife/action shooters !!

Don't full yourself, if the density of the sensors are the same you don't get any advantage. It's like zooming your FF.

JavaJones: I'm really struggling to understand the justification for a book module given the response to the face recognition issue: "'Face recognition is very important to some', he says, 'but irrelevant to others.'" So, kind of like a book module then?

I'd be shocked if making expensive photo books is more popular and of greater interest than face recognition, which can be useful to *anyone* who takes photos of people Anyone who says they have no use for it is likely to change their mind if they get a chance to work with a *well-implemented* system.

If Adobe is thinking about professionals and their cell phone pics with the geotagging module, clearly they're not so concerned with targeting a minority of the market. How many people are really editing their *cell phone* pics in LR?

My guess is they made a deal with Blurb, let's say 15% of all revenue from books made in LR4. Blurb gets promotion, Adobe gets extra cash. We get a module useful only to a minority of people. Win!

You are 100% correct. It's all about $$$.
