On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1853 comments in total)
In reply to:

KieranGee: I don't know if this has already been asked, but what about Photoshop Elements? For the vast majority of my edits, that is more than enough, and has a reasonable purchase cost. Is that going to be a subscription free service like Lightroom would appear to be staying?

@AnastasiaBeaverhausen dreadfully sorry to have offended you with my less than prolific output.

@jberk if the principle is "don't buy Adobe products because now they openly advertise that they're a bunch of money grubbing dicks", I can see what you're saying, but what the hell else are the "non avid users" such as myself going to use?

camerashopminion: Woohoo! Wonder if I'll still have a job by next week?

Depends upon if you work in a profitable store I'd imagine..

rondhamalam: It's difficult to return a product on Jessops and Jacobs.

on Amazon it is very easy to return a product.

That's the main reason I never buy from Jessops and Jacobs again ever.

I only buy from Amazon...
again and again and again and again......

that's real

It's difficult to return a product to a high street store because you're not always entitled to return it. Oddly enough, us retailers have rights too, and one of those rights is to see if it is economically viable for us to repair rather than replace an item.
We also have a right for the goods to be returned in a condition that allows us to sell them on at their full value (ie, unopened).
If Amazon allow you to return a product just because you don't like the shape, the colour or you feel that every sixth pixel isn't performing at one hundred percent, then fine, but they'd be just as entitled to say "actually, I'd just like to send this off for assessment first, and THEN we'll see about giving you a brand new one at a loss for us".

On Pentax MX-1 Preview preview (214 comments in total)
In reply to:

KieranGee: The question is, will the camera innards last long enough to make any brassing 'worthwhile'? An old mechanical camera with some brassing on it, has probably seen many years of use, due to it's lack of battery, LCD screen, digital sensor, circuit boards, and myriad other things to go wrong. I'd wager that not many MX-1s will be operational and looking well loved in fifty years time for example.

Perhaps "wear" is the wrong choice of words. Fail, would be better. Working, as I do, in camera retail, I do get to see an awful lot of older digital cameras that simply stop working, be it a sensor issue, or a connection between one board or another failing.
Also I'd say battery lifespan might be an issue. Sure you can pick up a spare Li-On battery now, but how easy will that be in five years time? Ten? If you can't get a manufacturers own brand battery after that period, will there be third party batteries, and if so, will you want to trust them in your lovely, antique looking MX-1?

In reply to:

bollzy: Of course, I've just bought an X10, and the only thing I want now is this X20. Crap.

Depending upon how recently 'just' means, you could still return it?
Of course, you'll have to pay a bit of a premium for an X20 when it hits the shelves, early adopter fee and all that.

On Canon Powershot N first impressions article (112 comments in total)

So, Samsung have given us their version of 'the connected camera' with the Galaxy Camera, and nopw Canon have shown us their take.
I must say I'm rather more taken with this than I am the Galaxy.

On Announcing connect.dpreview.com article (250 comments in total)

Ooooooooh, blue on white. Looks swish dudes, having just acquired a smartphone mahself I may even be participating in the fun and games more heavily.
From a content point of view, would it be correct to assume that dpreview will still be talking about smartphones and the like on the front page, but that any articles will be a link to connect?

dark goob: All my DX lenses will crop on this camera! My 10.5 fisheye will only get a part of the pixels...! When will they finally make a camera that will be full-frame with my DX lenses?! I'm tired of waiting

A camera that would be "full frame" for your DX lenses would be a camera that has a DX sensor.......

KieranGee: Props to dpreview for providing a link for "TARDIS" (and for the correct capitalisation of the word too). I think every review from here on in should include some sort of reference to British science-fiction television :P

Then well done to the pair of you. Now get cracking on getting a Quartermass Experiment reference in the K-30 review.

Well that is allowed to be reflected in your voting of the photo based on it's aesthetic appeal

In reply to:

raincoat: Why does it need firmware just to support a lens?

Well it's entirely possible I'm wrong about one or both of my suggestions, I am just guessing after all. I'd say that the most likely of my two theories is that it has to do with the software based lens corrections, which no other Canon camera has, making it a pretty safe bet that the update affects that.

In reply to:

raincoat: Why does it need firmware just to support a lens?

Because it is a new lens. Not only optically speaking, so any lens corrections that the 5D MkIII has baked in would need to be added for it, but also possibly because this particular lens uses a type of motor to drive the autofocus that Canon have not previously used. This might mean that the camera needs to treat it differently when focussing.
