wonder if aperture add ons such as nik filters will be supported... I've been toying with a move to lightroom for some time now - held back by a misguided sense of loyalty to Aperture which has served me well. Shame really as Apple has a reputation as a graphics and photographers' platform and a high-end image library tool with Apeture's vault capability is a core part of my computer requirement.Still, maybe the new product will replicate and enhance the feature set. If not - Lightoom; here I come!
Another surprised Aperture user here - can't understand why the premier apple converter wouldn't be included in a test such as this.
Whilst I agree with the pro photographer's sentiment - ie you need to pay for quality or you get rubbish - she doesn't make a compelling case.
Most families have to run a car and pay for health insurance etc. Those expenses are not specific to being a photographer.
The real answer is in the Bride's question - if photographers were really making excessive profit - others would step into the local market and fill the gap - that's the economy working. The fact that they "can" charge $3000 means that's what the market will stand.
All this assumes there isn't a local photographers' cartel operating of course - which in some towns may well happen...
