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?

The preview picture on this page is very nicely done. Good presentation whoever took it.
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......
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".
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.
And a very merry everything to you all too.
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?
Nishi Drew: What XF1 color did dpreview vote on?
I'd say that it is all about number twelve personally.
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.
And I say "dpreview" I do of course mean Richard Butler

Simon Zeev: Some pictures have a bad WB.
Well that is allowed to be reflected in your voting of the photo based on it's aesthetic appeal
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.
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.
sesopenko: David Hockney anyone?
What can I say? I got skills
I refer you to the second paragraph of the article where Mr Britton reference's David Hockney's work as well as including a link to his work.
Well damn, it would appear that Barney has beat me to it. Ah well, check out that second paragraph anyway, it's a goodun, right up there with the rest of the article which is also rather informative.
(unknown member): The WB is off. By a lot.
And you know this how?Without actually being the photographer, you have no way of interpreting their intentions for the shot.Yes, the image is rather 'cool' but I think that helps compliment both the blue of the steps and the blue of the sea in the top left, which for all we know could well have been an aesthetic made by the photographer.Either way, your rather unhelpful assertion of the incorrectness of the white balance, and my hypothesis as to why it may be "correct" (read "intentional") are based solely off of opinion, not solid fact, which only the photographer themselves can supply.
