christiangrunercom: Hmm, love to see how it works with a heavily adjusted d800 file... No tablet is yet fast enough for proper usage.

It appears they are going to work with Smart Previews rather than the RAW file.

John Tannock: I can't help wondering if the 'screen shot' was faked by a hacker. Adobe's been doing some bonehead marketing lately, in my humble opinion anyway, but this would be over the top even for them.

The linked article reports on a conversation with Adobe regarding LR mobile.

richarddd: The times I'd want to use this product I don't have sufficient bandwidth for a cloud service to make sense.

I'd like a LR version that runs on a tablet to use when travelling, but when I'm travelling I don't usually have very much bandwidth. I need the ability to edit on the tablet without an internet connection.

I'd prefer an android or windows 8 version, as tablets using those OSs make it easier to use external storage, compared to the limited storage on an ipad. OTOH, LR's smart previews feature lets you edit compressed versions of RAW files, so that might work.

I don't want to pay a yearly subscription fee for something I don't use. If that's the only alternative, can buy a windows 8 tablet and run desktop LR.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1879 comments in total)
In reply to:

a5519: Besides pricing and everything else, there is one more even more severe issue with this Adobe approach.

Under the requirement to validate the license the users actually must agree that Adobe is allowed to spy reqularly their computer - Adobe may validate the license on a computer but they also may look for something else. You don't know.

I am not sure that many private persons will be happy with this approach, nothing to say about companies, which must permit to access to their intranet.

Do you have a link and a quote from their terms of service?

Earthlight: I wonder if this new policy will fly in EU. The EU has given Microsoft some hard time and perhaps they will look into this as well?

What did the EU give Microsoft a hard time for other than antitrust issues for tying their browser to the operating systme? Adobe has a much smaller market share in photo editing than MSFT in OS.

danny006: I think they try to stop the illegal download of photoshop, a smart move I must say.

How does this stop illegal downloads? If pirates can break validation once under the old system, I'd imagine they can break it every so often under the new.

JLWPhoto: The advantages of renting/leasing is it usually comes at a much lower cost then owning (whether you are renting a car, apartment etc). That offsets the fact that after you are done renting you don't own anything.

Those are the two big issues for me.. first is that I don't own anything and I can't choose to keep my old version while I stop paying AND there isn't any significant cost offset for that loss of actual ownership.

>>So if the pricing was cheaper (to offset the lack of ownership), then you'd be happier with it?>>

The problem is both pricing and ownership (including not working if there's a connection issue).

Yep. The first four are all major concerns

@ CEfan, they didn't announce this 6 months ago. The stock is down since the announcement.

On CP+ 2013: Interview with Olympus' Toshi Terada article (242 comments in total)

I'd like to see Olympus improve the firmware in the E-M5, etc. Being able to access MySets through the mode dial and SCP would go a long way. Easier access to bracketing is frequently requested.

More high quality lenses should be a priority. Optical quality is key.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1514 comments in total)

The two best are the D800 for its image quality and the E-M5 for an overall package, including image quality and size, and for being a breakthrough camera in its class. I'd give the edge to the E-M5.

Sony gets special mention for its sensor manufacturing

richarddd: I'd prefer posts being listed in chronological order, as is done on just about every other forum, rather than the threaded view currently used.

I'd like a "new" button that actually takes you to the first unread post

Mrgrum's proposal answer's my main issue. The current flat view isn't very good, because you can't tell what people are responding to.

The "new" link on the forum list of threads doesn't work. "next >" only appears in threaded view

On Hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 article (215 comments in total)

_ the camera will attempt to track focus during shooting, and maintains a live view feed between frames in the process: the first Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera to do so. In principle this should help track your subject when panning._

Does it work in practice as well as in principle?

Two criticisms of m43 cameras are blanking the EVF while shooting bursts and not great C-AF. How does the E-M5 do?
