On App Review: Snapseed for Android post (1 comment in total)

Changes aren't destructive if you always have the originals still intact, which is the case with Snapseed. It only will export or save additional images, not overwrite the originals. "Non-destructive" image editing was really popularized by Adobe Lightroom. In comparison, Adobe Photoshop will easily allow you to "CTRL-S" to save right over the original, LR will not. It isn't a worry in Snapseed, your originals are safe.

Canon 6D support! Wahoo! That didn't take long at all. I thought it would be in a RC or two before they gave final version support to it. But I'll take it! Can't wait to not have to use DPP any longer.

Wondering if these high ISO JPEG are with noise reduction or not. Makes it difficult to compare these to anything without knowing that.

Balooziggy: I am a Canon user for many years, currently I have a 5DMKII & 7D and seriously looking at the 1DX, with several lenses & accessories and I do NOT get the Canon model strategy given this announcement? The flagship 1DX is now 18MP FF, the 5DMKIII is 22MP FF, the 6D now fits between them and also FF, the 7D however is APS-C and 18MP, all these cameras except the 6D use CF Cards, so why has Canon done this on their so called Pro line-up ?D Range? Very Odd.
The Canon Single Digit D range should have consistent standards throughout, that would make it far more attractive to both Pro's and avid amateur's alike to further invest in it's lineup, at the moment I must say, I think Nikon have a better road map and strategy for their product lineup and a better story to tell in general.
I am disappointed with Canon's recent announcements and am now starting to wonder whether it's time to move on to something else.

The "investment" in SD cards is minimal. SD cards typically cost less than CF cards now anyways. With the proliferation of SDXC and SDHC, the size and speed exists - typically at a comparable or lesser cost. The only reason I can see for a big complaint is a videographer heavily invested in high speed high capacity CF cards. For photographers we are talking under $100 to switch in most cases.
