Raist3d: Not to license to a same entity permanently and forever- nope. And forget any of my images I would consider in the fine art and not stock category.
I don't understand why they decide to roll back on photographers setting their pricing. At first it seemed like a huge step forward for the right thing but now again- no.
@ZTJ - not necessarily easy, but there is SO much of it out there today that you are probably right about all the rest you say
I mean wow!!!!!!!!
Someone claimed that you need to use a desktop to pre-package all images in a special form and to upload them to the server and that full final retrieval also requires desktop access. That seems like it would sort of defeat the purpose of this all in many cases, if true.
Mystery Gardener: I see that a lot of the whiners and complainers commenting on the new Adobe CC features are the same people who fervently stated that Adobe would not add any new features to the CC product (no incentive). Please stand up and be counted (yes, you too hiding in shadows at the back of the room).
I am still using CS6 but will be joining the cloud group in the future if they keep adding new functionality. My cable/internet/phone package is 200 dollars a month, 10 bucks a month seems relatively cheap (basically the same cost as 2 good cups of coffee).
Standing up. I still don't like software rentals. I don't care what they add to it or what the rental price. And I don't yet see anything they've added that makes me miss CC one bit. And for those who also more than just PS this new model appears it would cost more than interleaved upgrading a partial suite and stand alone PS every few generations.
justin23: The issue with the rental model stills continues. If you stop paying for the rental model, your files are trapped without anyway of opening them. Worst case they should allow you to open and save any files even if your subscription is no longer valid.Luckily Lightroom is probably all most photographers really need.
Only if they are stored as photoshop documents and use extra features. But all the same, you could rent it for years and if you stop you have no program to show for it. At the least they could let you keep using whatever version you were currently on forever and simply just cut off future updates (at least so long as you had owned CS6 prior or, if not, then rented it for say three straight years).
InTheMist: Adobe is dead to me.
@jadot - if that were true, they wouldn't be sending non-stop offers begging those of us avoiding the rental model to join the rental model
Jogger: Dont photographers mostly use Lightroom or similar.. unless you are a graphic design or in a production environment why you would use PS in a photography workflow.
Because there are tons of basic photo processing things that LR can't do. LR isn't much more than ACR really. And for photo ingestion and initial sorting it's so deadly slow! It makes you render previews for everything! Other programs let you instantly zip right through and sort on the spot without waiting.
davidgp: Since when does Photoshop handle 3D information?!?!? Is that new with this version or has it had that capability for some time?
It's actually had 3D for a long time, only in the Extended editions though until CS6 I believe. It's a bit of hack though since wouldn't you just use a true full on 3D rendering program instead? But I guess for those who do very little maybe it was nice to have a little built in??
tornwald: who cares, Adobe is dead
@Just a Photographer - if so then why are they desperately extending the deals again and again and again?
EssexAsh: "Adobe do something" article. Cue villagers with pitchforks and torches.
Id love to see the hate generated if Dpreview reported an Adobe update that was really useful , but released it only on an apple product.
@attomole - you had a typo there "of the irrational hate" should be "of the rational hate".
Arca-swiss upside down monoballs like p0 and p1 are awesome. Quick spin and flick and they are locked and they have wide tilt range.
none of the above.... maybe 2014
(not a DSLR, so it doesn't count here, but A7R was them most interesting.... at least for Canon users wanting FF with more MP and DR for landscapes)
MrSkelter: People can see well beyond 300 dpi. It's not about pixels, it's about smoothness and perception. It's why a photo of an orange on a 300 dpi display doesn't look like a real orange - even when lit correctly and without clues like glare which tell you you're looking at a screen.
We need to get to 5,000 dpi+ before our displays become windows and images look real. Bring it on. The sooner the better.
5000 is a bit overkill, but yeah the whole you need a 20' screen to make use of more than 1080P or 300ppi is the limit of the eye or there is no need to ever go past 1920x1200 on a 24" monitor and so on are all old wives tales whose time has long passed.
plevyadophy: Manual Exposure, Auto ISO, and Exposure Compensation and .... wait for it .............. ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!!!
Why the hell such an obvious feature wasn't put in the camera from the get-go is anyone's guess, but at least they did it in the end.
It seems the arrogance of Canon and Nikon is on the wane now that they are getting stiff competition from Oly, Panny, Sony and Fuji. So no more leaving off obvious features and having the damn cheek to expect us to buy a new multi-thousand dollar kit just to get the added features in the firmware!!
Previously, the likes of Canon and Nikon would never ADD features to a camera; they would only correct bugs in existing features.
Isn't competition just a wonderful thing?!!! :-)
Now, for me, they have made this camera worth buying.
I might agree their arrogance is leaving.... if they hadn't nonsensically made the EC for AutoISO update 1DX only. Why not every current model at the least?
facedodge: Auto ISO is useless without exposure compensation, especially since Canon underexposes by 1/3 to 2/3 of a stop. This needs to be given to us 5D users too!
It should've been in all bodies Rebel and up ages ago. It's a one penny feature. To keep in the 1DX only is absurd. No other makes does that, they even have their lowest end even with even fancier implementations than even the 1DX will now get.
Pretty awesome for 1DX users! They really should do this for the 5D3 too (and the EC for AutoISO should have been done ages ago.... for ALL models, down through Rebel as every other maker has had for years, it's absurd it's taken over a decade to get such a trivial thing out and it's still only for top of the top model!)
Impulses: $400 mini vs $230 Nexus 7... Tough sale, I didn't think there'd be a price hike with the Retina display but I guess it makes sense if they're keeping the old one. Selling the old model well into 2014 would be rather odd tho... It's gonna start dragging a-- with updates.
It's too bad android is based around java programming though, what a nasty pig of a language
jcmarfilph: Hotly anticipated? Yawn, just another addition to crippled iTabs from Apple.
They also make it tough to do other trivial actions you can't nicely tether to most cameras well, why not be able to see color-managed liveview streams on it and so on?
It sure would be a heck of a lot more convenient if they didn't lock them down so much and give them a freakin USB port already! Why do I need to lug around a bulky old laptop piece of junk just to plug in a WD Passport HD to offload 5D3 ML RAW video onto when I have a power tablet computer iPad with me? Why???? Because Apple has become everything they whined about in their 1984 commercial! Give us a darn USB (3.0) port already and don't cripple this than and everything else an otherwise super amazing tablet can do!
Yeah MS is nuts for trying to turn PCs into tablets, that's ridiculous and awful, but you Apple are nuts for refusing to turn tablets into PCs!!!! MS is going down in flames for the former and you will eventually for the latter.
