paul simon king: Just been told that LR6 perpetual licence won't get any upgrades should any be released

Can anyone corroborate this this?

Just to be clear: I wasn't assuming that the standalone wouldn't get the usual updates but was expressing my concern that another said it wouldn't (apparently via a Scott Kelby blog)

I heard it from Ian Barber on the digitalmonochrome forum

http://bthedigitalmonochromeforum.runboard.com/t201628

The problem here really is not whether it is true or not but that I should have so little faith in Adobe's support fro standalone versions atht I was prepared to belive it

GaryJP: They might be assuring us they are going to keep Lightroom as a standalone product, but it is a nightmare to get through their site without being signed up to a Creative Cloud you don't want. They are just pushing the standalone right to the periphery.

Liars. As we always knew.

after a lovely walk in the sun feeling morre patient so looked ahgain and yeah found it - for UK- go to uk site, sign in, scroll to VERY bottom of page where in small text it says 'products ' etc in grey, click on products - then the options come up

Once you upgrade you might find like me that ist cant see your current version (no eligable version found; so you'll need to make sure you have your current LR version serila nos handy

just spent a bit more time trying to find the UK perpectual licence upgrade. Simply cannot find it despite having exhausted all effoerts on the UK site which , in all practical senses, means that the upgrade doesnt exist and actually I can't upgrade.

they want to phase out non CC cumstomers- fair enough, they are succeeding- good luck to them

It isn't the end of the world. 5.7 works fine.Thats enough time wasted.

GreenPig: Many people, myself included, with AMD graphics processors are not able to see the GPU improvements. The feature is turned off due to the following error ...
"Check OpenGL support: Failed"
The adobe forums have many posts about this with a wide range of cards affected.

But apart from that,everything else is working well.

My favourite so far .... HDR images that don't look like "overdone HDR" ... :)
With a final RAW file giving a full +/- 10 EV range. You can then tweak it to look like an "overdone HDR" if that's what you want

except it doesnt work fine for perpetual Ps licence holers- in fact it HAS to be turned off - unless you want all the errors that go with it being on

same experience here_(given the link from LR5.7 update options in program) OK maybe not a nightmare but if I still couldn't find it after 10 mins of looking it is at the very least a PITA

Wouldn't it be nice if the prograp linked to an option to update to version 6 and , knowing I am linking froma licenced version, offer me the upgrade path and price, instead of trying to force feed me the CC version

perhaps if they changed their attitude to me I might change my attitude to them

I only mention it because I know some others (elsewhere )boycotted RRS for that reason- me-I don't care-and if people do have strong views then I understannd
no afenda

I genuinely wondered whether that was a reason - no one said what the reason was - so I asked

I also only asked why no RRS in the review as it didnt say in the review that it was a revow about ones you couldnt easily test in shops etc ( though not sure how that applies to RSS)

Anyway - it was just a simple question not a condemnation or an axe to grind- relax- its not the end of the world - yet
lol

Guidenet: I've always considered the big four of Arca Swiss, Really Right Stuff, Kirk and Markins to be the largest part of the Arca dovetail market with Aratech in there at a slightly lower price point. Quite honestly, I've never heard of the rest of them in both tests.

Personally, I'd not consider Gitzo because it's not Arca compatible. Gitzo is part of the Manfrotto group which is also not represented in either the 2014 or this review.

If we consider ballheads which are not Arca compatible, then we're certainly missing Manfrotto which probably has a market share larger than all these put together. Their top models are superb. I'm a little surprised at their omission. The Hydrostatic and magnesium models seem technologically interesting enough as well as being as unique as many that are represented but unheard of. ;-)

Maybe this is a list of ballheads owned by staff members and therefore readily available for review. Nothing wrong with that.

"These heads were chosen (by me alone) primarily because of their interesting features, and secondarily because they cannot typically be tried out at any local photo store" - what for you not say thisin yr review - could a saved you lots of time later ;)

I had no problem ordering from RRS online and as you say in your intro it may add to the cost due to customs charges but not significantly enough to warrent excluding them from this comparison surely?

Is it because they financially supported the campaign against gay equality? If so, then I understand

The Squire: The good: Surprisingly good ISO 800!

The bad: Certainly at the long end it seems very soft. Look at the closeup of the silver haired climber. Soft, no per pixel detail, and a fair bit of CA. Looks like a bad 5MP camera phone snap.

Oh come n be fair - this is a POCKET camera at LONG FL

paul simon king: I have never got over the names Zeiss uses: "Distagon' sounds like some primary school nomenclaure - and just has me making up comic alternatives in my head: "distawent', 'wideolux', 'scopizoomitoff', 'yondergon', splenomegaly - oh no sorry don't know how that last one crept in there

Not sure if you are being sarcastic, in which case the humour is appreciated, but in case not - it's just humour - please don't take it too seriously - the whole point of humour is to see things in a lighthearted way
