In LR on my Mac with LR5 and 6, and now on my PC with LRCC I have the same stinking error all the time. When using the adjustments brush, after a certain amount of time it won't register. I will click on the brush, and then begin to make an adjustment, and nothing will happen. I found a workaround online that you toggle the on/off switch in the bottom left of the pane, and then it will come back to life, but that fix was from a 2013 article. How is this such a blatant bug that happens to me EVERY TIME I use the software, across multiple platforms and years, that still has not been fixed? Figure it out Adobe.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 First Impressions Review (992 comments in total)

Johannes Compaan: I just had the pleasure to grab a RAW from the K1 and play around a little. Without to much of a hassle, the result was astonishing. Have a look:

I'm not sure if astonishing is the word I would use if I had been around any Sony sensor the past 4 years. I feel like the A6000 is capable of a pull like that and I know my D750 is more than capable of doing that. Yes its neat but not exactly earth shattering.

So I saw that boxing picture and was like, HA! That Barry guy is boxing. And then I looked at 100% and I am pretty sure that's not Barry. But a scary, criminal version of Barry.

Bah. Disappointing. Glad I sold my A6000 a few months ago and went the D750 route. Still have the RX100III for portability. They had been so responsive, almost to a fault, that I guess our expectations got high. Now they can't let this thing eat into their A7 series. Annoying though, why the massive price increases?like the A6000 debuted at what, $799 with a lens? This thing is a couple years removed and they are asking for that kind of premium? Doesn't make sense.

One other note, it drives me insane when people talk about the different materials for the bodies. As if the A6000 was some fragile piece of kit that broke on people all the time. With the likely hundreds of thousands of bodies that the A6000 sold I have never seen an issue of a hardware related fault or failure. But let's all demand some stronger body because that's what's necessary and we should be spending money on. Foolish.

WordsOfFarewell: Good thing Sigma lenses are getting amazingly good these days. :)

A 15-30, with VC, that outperforms the 14-24 in virtually all regards, for roughly half the price. So I'd say so.

Can someone explain to me how Japan has one of the most modern economies in the world but in order to make simple purchases you have to calculate things in the hundreds of thousands? Like, drop a few zeroes dudes.

Yes...

This is a photography website...

.

These are all fairly basic terms. This is not a photography website it is a website dedicated to photographic companies and their gear. Telling us about the financial performance of a specific Camera company provides insight as to what that company might do next.

Perhaps you'd be better suited reading SonyAlphaRumors which just basically makes stuff up every day throws everything at the wall and hopes for something to stick. This article tells me that Sony will continue focusing more on higher margin products, which means its Full Frame cameras because they generate a higher profit than lower margin cameras, like the A6000.

What makes more profit... Selling a camera that costs you $1600 to make for $3,300. Or selling a camera that costs $400 to make for $700. The difference is called margin. More expensive cameras have higher margins, and therefore are more profitable per unit.

Therefore, I'm not holding my breath for an A7000.

falconeyes: Small Sony is making a solid profit year after year - despite their bold effort at innovation and R&D.

Makes me wonder where all that money within much bigger Canon and Nikon is going to ... There must be a staff of lazy/inefficient and wealthy people to be sustained ;)

Ever see the speech Michael Douglas gives to Teldar Paper in Wall Street? Its probably alot like that.

On article Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review (474 comments in total)

This piece of crap will sell in droves this holiday season. Every person who knows nothing about how cameras work but wants to get a 'good' camera will go to Best Buy and be tricked into buying this thing. God the idiocy of the masses allowing corporations to be so lazy. This isn't how its supposed to work people!

Theres no coincidence that after posting three cameras that are better than anything Canon offers you post a video of a guy taking an axe to his Canon, is there?

On article Alpha dog: Hands-on with Sony a7R II (1118 comments in total)

Soooo what's the AF system going to be like on this thing? More advanced than the A6000? What does it focus down to EV wise?

Link | Posted on Jun 12, 2015 at 03:20 UTC as 110th comment

This is a decent upgrade over the III, which I have, but I am not crazy tempted to buy this thing like I am the A7RII. Even though it would make me go bankrupt.

The new viewfinder is probably beautiful but I don't use it much anyways. Also who needs 16FPS if your AF system can't keep up? CDAF focusing can't keep up with 5fps, let alone 16. Either way, keep pushing the envelope Sony!

munro harrap: But battery-wise it is almost on a par with a Merrill . The batteries are dreadfully inadequate even on APS-C, but with the stabilization, bigger sensor count, and constant live view, you'll be missing shots changing batteries

Ya dude, the battery life on my Nokia was pretty slick back in the day. Pretty sure I'd rather have an iPhone though. Anyways have fun with your huge batteries!

Love the nitpicking in here.

Sony could cure cancer and Canikon users would still be like, "Well, I bet they never thought of the impact that's going to have on the environment what with overpopulation being what it is!"

Sorry that the brand you spent the last decade laughing at is now creating products that make yours look like they are from the stone age.

This is such a foolish comment. I have literally never missed a shot changing batteries. You can buy endless amounts of batteries and they all work wonderfully. They are also insanely cheap and light if you get third party ones (which work just as well as OEM). I shot 947 shots today at the beach, over the course of 4 hours, and recorded 3 2+ minute videos. Then I came home and reviewed my pictures, deleted 359 of them, and still had 12% left on my battery. I am pretty sure over the course of those hours, and hours, and hours of shooting my A6000 I could have changed a battery. It takes about 8 seconds. You are an idiot.

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (733 comments in total)
In reply to:

Karen Casebeer: I was surprised at this statistic: The latest data shows that over 61% of first time ILC buyers are under the age of 35, up from 54% approximately two years ago.

I have heard of several aging professional photographers going mirrorless because they no longer want or are able to carry a heavy gear load. That was the case for myself, who tried to transition to a mirrorless with a Panasonic. Unfortunately, it didn't compare in IQ to my Canon so I sent it back. Perhaps I should have given Sony a try.

Well since a $600 A6000 has a better sensor and thus better IQ than any Canon camera that isn't Full Frame I would say you are correct. I'd wait a month though and get its successor, which will now be 2 full generations ahead of anything Canon sells.

Or get an A7 and blow the doors off everything including Canon's FF offerings. Also an option. Just slowed AF. Just depends on your shooting needs. And if you think the glass isn't there, unless you realllly need a long Tele, Sony has everything you would need. Well, Zeiss has everything you need.

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (733 comments in total)
In reply to:

taktak91: I recently attended a photography session.
There were about a hundred amateur photographers.
95% of cameras used were Canikon DSLRs.
A few Pentax.
I only saw 2 Sony bodies, one SLT, the other DSLR (old A9 ). No mirrorless.
Only mirrorless I saw was a Lumix.
I don't know about the rest of the world, but here, DSLRs remain the only viable option. Mirrorless are regarded as inferior option for those who can 't afford 'real' cameras, for those who don't know much about cameras in the first place.

Right, and if you walked up to any one of them and showed them what an A6000 could do they would immediately realize the irony of their situation. Have you ever heard of Jason Lanier?
