Sounds like a potentially awesome landscape kit!
Once again. DPR staff posting rumors, when we all know they have been playing with one for weeks now. They did the same thing with the Nikon Df.
By posting this rumor, they are indirectly confirming that it is true, but they can't say it yet due to NDA restraints.
Timbukto: What is it that causes people to assume that software = free, but hardware costs money. Duplication and mass production of software has relatively insignificant costs in terms of energy and waste (fueled by junk food and soda cans perhaps), but the development and R&D costs are still there. Your photos can be duplicated for little to no cost as well, does that mean your photos should be free? The C100 is not even a mainstream consumer device where most of you should even gripe about, let the very few professional C100 owners complain. Our society places no value about the worth of firmware updates and the development that goes into it...but I bet you value techies the moment your OS F's up and you need to hire a techie to recover your photos. A camera with great hardware and absolute crap firmware still can make for a crap camera. So why the double-standard...one where you greatly value competent robust and innovative software, and one where you completely disregard its worth?
It makes me sad to see people complain about this too. :(
I used to do video game development, and it takes an incredible amount of time and money to write even some of the most basic of features, along with testing and bug fixing.
People think a single guy at Canon just commented out a line of code and shipped the firmware out the door. Highly unlikely.
Funny how the DPR staff try to play this off as being some rumor type info and showing these sneak peaks captured from Nikon teasers...
When every one of us knows DPR staff have been playing with one for weeks now, at least. haha
Luckily, every time I paid for anything on CC, I would remove/alter my credit and personal info from the system.
If any other company could come out with an equally good product to Photoshop, they would instantly steal a huge market share of angry but stuck customers.
I'm shocked Adobe isn't offering some sort of compensation to people affected. I would expect at least a few free months of cloud service in return for being shafted.
