I am a Mushroom farmer and I welcome the 3.3 million ISO setting. Before the D5 became available we used to have to open the windows a little bit and that spoilt the crop.

Neodp: This is great. Try all if you have the time; but before you do lets get in the "helicopter" view.

All this stuff is very doable in numerous different ways. Sharpening, Film looks, "Filters", artistic analog emulation, repair, alterations etc... The EXACT same outcomes. So this is 1000 ways to "skin a cat". The issue with trying everything is LEARNING MANY different ways, menu's, angles of "attack" and levels of automation. Such as presets and the amount of flexibility tweaking them. Then the other way; can you also opt for full manual for maximal control? One program may do vignetting (for one example) slightly different. This is not a reason to put down any one of them. Change abidance is a human issue and change by itself best not beat your metric.

But we hate change. Just some less than others. So we grasp for the best reviewed so that we might find some semblance of a STANDARD. The lie is some programs are "professional" and you will be labeled a "pro" if you use them...........

I switched off at Helicopter view

backayonder: All these updates would be fine if I had unlimited broadband bandwidth each month. 8GB is just not enough to watch my football team currently top of the Premier League I might add never mind finding bandwidth for all these constant Adobe updates.
I am sure that when Photoshop was available on a disk they took more care before releasing a new version.

Where I live there is no ADSL only wireless Broadband

Touchy.

Its not the updates so much as the bugs in Lightroom

My D750 purchased in May 2015 was not on the original list but is now listed as being affected. I never experienced this shading problem

Or is it affected because my shutter completely failed in January and was replaced along with the focus screen in February because the first picture I took after powering on the camera resulted in a jammed shutter and err in the top LCD panel.

Nikon lists my camera as affected but maybe when I put in the serial number it does not realise mine was replaced in feb.

Oh well I guess I will wait and see if there are any issues down the track.

On article Worth the wait? A look inside the Pentax K-1 (650 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: This K-1 beauty got a tepid "Worth the Wait?" headline, and the new Sony A6300 crop sensor got an exuberant "Wow" headline? Now that's funny. All that aside, the Pentax 67 style prism housing looks awesome, looks like a dream camera, this K-1 is easily one of the most interesting releases on a long time. Can we please have a reviewer who won't write that "bulky" nonsense as a con? Many of us want cameras that handle well, and don't care if they fit in our skinny jeans. :-)

Pen Hacks Headline so reported the Daily Star

Is it true that Nikon kidnapped the owner of Nikon Rumours and have only just released him?
