Can you guys do AF tests with moving subjects? Honestly the differences in static image quality between todays top cameras seem so small that its alsmot not worth pages of review anyways.
"That price will never change"
yeah sure. LOL
falconeyes: I would have been keen to learn about AF consistency using the new 70D's dual pixel live view AF.
I seem to believe that if I ran a review site I would get the camera wherever I have to so that I can have a review first and collect the revenue through web traffic. If I dont get it delivered by Canon, I will go out and buy it as it pretty much wont cost me anything anyways.
But thats just me
@Adrien. I dont want a 70D But if the #1 camera review website can not get in the #1 new camera from the #1 camera manufacturer after it IS IN THE STORES, then someone is not doing their job right.
You can buy the 70D in the stores .... If they dont have one then its incompetence
@ Andy, preview? great but other have REVIEWS out.
You cant get a 70D? Are you for real? Maybe fire the person in charge of procuring products and get someone who can either get it straight from the manufacturer or can get his ass in a store and BUY it!
Are you kidding?
People are buying them in the stores and using them. How can you not have one and have started a review?
Other sites will be lightyears ahead of you
dannyboy5400: Even if Adobe reverses course on this, TRUST is broken and I will never trust them again. I hope competitors jump on this the way Adobe was all over the Final Cut Pro debacle. I am back on FCX now that it is fixed.
I dont think adobe cares and I believe for large commercial customers the leasing model is actually a benefit.
It is not likely that adobe gives a rat's ass about a few lost purchases from hobby photographers or small professionals
howardroark: Suggest to DPReview what I suggested and let's answer the real question: Of all the users who currently own a legal license to Adobe CS or PS software, will you ever purchase an Adobe product using the CC pricing scheme? Instead of hiding the true results of this decisions in some vague expressions of unhappiness let's see how our feelings are going to hit Adobe's pocket book. A simple yes or no and we'll see how people really feel about this nonsense. If our pocketbooks are going to do the talking, let's give Adobe a little preview. My bet is everyone who dislikes the move is a "no" (95% as of now) and everyone else is the 5% saying "cool with me." Go eat a bag of human male reproductive organs, Adobe (the word I was going for there was what one might use as shorthand for Richard).
Yes I own a legal copy of PS and NO I would NEVER pay for some subscription BS.
It is not even about the money, it is about the hassles that come with that "rental" software.
I like to own what I pay for. Period
Dale Garman: Welcome to the Hotel California -- you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave!!
Yes you can just ease into the subscription model, spend thousands of hours using it and creating images and layers, but if you miss a payment you are like the guests of the Hotel California - stuck somewhere you don't want to be with work that has evaporated in value to you.
as much as the cloud BS sucks, if you miss a payment you can just get another subscription and continue.
I can imagine that professionals, esp. with many seats will prefer a monthly leasing rate as long as they need the seats over a one time cost.
AbrasiveReducer: He's right about one thing. I find myself using Photoshop less and less because Lightroom is quicker and less painful. With thousands of images, who has time for the 22-step tutorials in Photoshop magazine? When Lightroom was released, I thought, here is a program for photographers. Photoshop? Not really. I can live without being able to add type or use spider warp.
for many shots, LR is good enough but if you edit single photos, esp if you do lots of healing or levels or pixel editing then there is little choice other than going into PS for the finishing touches
This is maybe a good time to start giving up .DNG .. just in case Adobe has even funnier plans ...
Wouldn't those cinematographers for high resolution broadcast TV and cinema production use VIDEOCAMERAS rather than using a klutzy DLSR?
