So you compare a $30.000 camera to a $2.500 camera and the most expensive is better - SHOCKING!
Please attach the new sticker:
I AM spotless
Forget the design - show me the Pictures!
Well I am happy!
I have a T2I and it is now current again! This means that it must be worth more now ;-)
I will wait until Hasselblad makes a better grip for it...
Oh no - this could mean the end for the Hasselblad Lunar and Stellar cameras!
I hope this new camera comes with swarovski crystals
Adobe must be really desperate. I think I will wait for the $4.99 offer ;-)
Looks like some people actually bought the Lunar ;-0:https://m.facebook.com/hasselbladlunar.official?id=368027916644090&_rdr
You have to give credit where credit is due:
Never as anyone done as much for opensource software as Adobe ;-)
Lloyd Chambers sums it up - for me it is goodbye Adobe:
A subscription model is based on trust. I have to trust that the prices wont go up considerably, that their politics will not change, that they will continue to develop the software etc etc
How can a person sign such an agreement? Adobe just backstabbed their users changing all the terms that we should now sign up for! And they are still selling PS CS6 extended for $999 knowing that there will be no updates in future!
Also if I buy a perpetual license I can still see my photos, edit them, print them etc. The model is totally flawed from the users perspective but, of course, brilliant for companies like Adobe. No Way!
Another thing Adobe has forgotten too is that software stability is an important issue for a lot of companies. That is the reason they often wait to do upgrades until all the bugs are ironed out.
Now we can all be Beta testers
You just have to love companies that tell us what is best for us instead of the inverse ;-)
Excellent article over at Fstoppers:
This is a brilliant idea - for Adobe i.e.
From now on I cannot buy a new version based on useful features for me, I just have to HOPE and TRUST that Adobe will continue to develop the software I use and then pay in advance.What if Adobe decide to cease support and development? I will then have to invest in another software just to access and edit my files...
A subscription version of Lightroom is already in the works so we can just sit and wait until we only have a Lightroom CC version only (Credit Card version)
Henry M. Hertz: GUYS YOU DON`T THINK STRAIGHT!!
when you are on subscription and have no other choice ... adobe has you by your balls!!!
sooner then later adobe will INCREASE the monthly price for CC and you have to pay it.
you won´t be able to say.. well i don´t pay that.. you have too because otherwise your subscription will stop and you have NOTHING to work with.
that is what will happen....
Exactly! I subscirbe and then the month after the price goes up! If I don´t pay I cannot edit my photos as I cannot access the software.
Time to find an alternative!
John P.: D800 is the winner here....time to move over.
As a Canon user I will have to give this one to Nikon
I think that the Canon philosophy of crippling functionality is going to backfire this time. The 5D classic was a game changer with a FF 12MP sensor. The 5D M2 was a game changer with 21MP and videoThe 5D M3 is ...hm...it can now focus but really:USB2 in 2012!Flash sync is 1/200 sec - even the 20D had 1/250 secSD with only class 10 speed supportedNo wifi, no GPS, no wireless flash integratedNo clean HDMI output and no 1080/60fps - obviously because will come out with another product soonISO is no better than a 36MP camera (D800) and marginally better than MK2 - obviously detail is worse than D800Price is higher than the D800!!!! It is even more expensive than the D800E which is going to be another Canon nightmare!!
Furthermore Canon never adds functionality in firmware like updates from Sony, Pentax etc. And so the list continues....
DXOmark just tested the Pentax K-01 and it is the second best hybrid camera and as good as the Nikon D7000
nunatak: fictitious gear author KR beats DPR to a full 5D Mark III review:http://www.kenrockwell.com/canon/5d-mk-iii.htm
check out the box the 5D mark III comes in. the colors are much nicer than the D800's box, and the D800's box has too many atoms. it doesn't matter though, as neither are near as sharp as KR's Leica M9 box. but that may change quickly because soon he'll show the world how sharp his D800E's box is — even when downsized to the 5D mark III's quantity of fluffed atoms.
please continue to help ken measurebate his growing family of boxes. :)
lolYes KR is hilarious. As he says on his website:"6 Megapixels is all anyone needs for anything" ;-)
I think the D800 has a bit more detail in Raw but the MKIII has better iso performance.
This thread is going to be long - I'll go and get some popcorn
Antony John: For anyone interested, DXO have now measured the sensor and the data is available.Let's just say their results are 'interesting' as is their rating.
I would say more than interesting!!I just cannot beleive that the low light iso performance is as good as the D4!
