JustBob: I thoroughly enjoyed this video. Especially the location, people, and the story woven around them. The camera was interesting too, but that didn't even matter.

Great work you two! If I could ever produce something this enjoyable, I'd be very proud. Wenmei, I'd love to know the approximate hours in post you (or you and others) spent assembling this piece?

Thanks so much for the reply. Producing video really is an entirely different world!

For those of you with the same install problem I had yesterday, i.e. you reboot, sign in/out of the CC app, etc etc and LR won't launch from the tile, it did work for me just now. I presume Adobe did something overnight since absolutely nothing changed on my end.

I'm the last person to bash Adobe, but all these problems do really suck. Plus when I was trying this, LR5 lost track of what DB I was using, that I was a registered user (displayed the serial number screen). Now I'm a "trial user" for both photoshop and LR. I'm LOGGED IN with the CC app. Why should it be so hard, querying the Adobe license server, not to mention info it could store on my hard drive, that I'm a legit monthly paying user?

moga: I instaled it on my machine as a trial ( windows 8.1 x64) but it doesn't start. Any idea why?

^^^ We aren't that lame! Have tried this, plus rebooting, plus uninstalling and installing again, nothing has worked. Some environmental thing we have in common. IMO the app is not truly getting installed (since it doesn't show up as a windows app).

Several instances of the same thing here in these comments. Wondering what is different for those that got it working?

I Uninstalled (in the CC app) and reinstalled. No difference. In the "activity stream" CC thinks it is installed. But I don't think so. In the Windows search box (used to find programs/etc) when I type Adobe, I get Lightroom 5.7, Photoshop CC, various other bits and pieces, but no Lightroom CC 2015.

Boo hoo, after a reboot it (Lightroom CC 2015) did show up in Creative Cloud, and it "installed." It's now shown in the Installed Apps section, like Photoshop CC. But when I click it, nothing happens (as opposed to the Photoshop button which does launch properly). Rebooting no help. Windows 8.1 Pro/64bit/16gb. Any more ideas?

shaocaholica: There's a solution many M9 owners have for the lackluster rear LCD. Just lose it altogether. When you shot film, you don't know what the photo looked like till it was developed and that 'charm' is missing when shooting digital so if you're going in for a penny on retro handling you might as well go in for a pound.

Gary, how about these?

Most of you guys are so off base. Obviously you don't own one, haven't shot with one. I'll concede there are some vanity collectors that have too much money. Whatever.

For the rest of us, the M9 is a unique proposition. It's full frame! Hello! Posts above saying youl get a better file from a more up to date sensor which is m4/3 or aps-c: you just don't know what you are talking about.

I had a GH2. I have an NEX7, 5D2, M9. This is my #1 hobby, and even with all I have, it's a lot less $ than something like a bass boat that someone is making payments on, and by the time he's done with the payments it's worth 1/4 what he paid for it.

Why are mirrorless so popular? Because we are aging and it's hard to carry a pack full of pro-glass (i.e. L's in my case). And... airline travel today.

There simply is no small camera (including the XPro-1) that even approaches what an M9 and Leica glass can do. Manual AF, once learned, is a joy. In many situations, the small cameras don't AF anyway.

Thanks guys. Like I mentioned to rponiarski, I tried HDR a few years ago and it just wasn't for me. This shot would be hard to HDR too as I just put my camera down on my foot and fired. I like this POV but I'm not dedicated enough to lay down on the asphalt!
