Complete history of the pro digital camera program. Some of the cameras were seen by very few people, including and underwater digital SLR!

Ian, you do not know what you are speaking of. All of these were available commercially, and were primarily sold to corporations and government entities. Kodak did not make these for the fun of it. I was part of this and know it to be a fact.

Actually if you would like more info on the Kodak cameras from the dawn of the digital SLR take a look at Jim McGarvey's website:

Jim was one of the most influential engineers in the development of the digital cameras. Make sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page too.

On ACD Systems issues ACDSee Pro 6 and ACDSee 15 article (75 comments in total)

MrTed: Is ACDSee Pro 6 faster than Photo Mechanic in terms of initially launching the application, and then to cull a large number or RAW images?

ACDSee 5 Pro and prior versions have been slow to start for me. I'm running Windows 7, 64-bit with 8 GB RAM.

Any one feel ACDSee Pro 6 is faster than Pro 5 from an image browser perspective?

It is DEFINITELY noticeably faster than ACDsee Pro 5. I edit a couple of thousand images each week and have been using 4 and 5 for my workflow. On two different computers, both running Vista 64bit, I have run some processing tests. Much faster, and manages memory and processor load much better. Loads large directories faster, and I'm loading a 1300 image folder of 21mp raw files. Its a must have upgrade if you have a 64bit OS. It has even made my minimal laptop noticeably faster handling files (2ghz duo core, 4gb ram, Vista 64).
