Keep in mind that it was only produced to entertain the DPReview community. I just ordered two (I like the case).
Sounds like a nice little camera spec-wise. It will hopefully perform well and can replace my Canon SX260 HS.
technofan: It's a good offer. You're not committed for life. If it's too much then leave at the end of your annual term. What's the worst that can happen? You lose around £110 (in my case). But that's having used the software for a year too. You can of course buy from somewhere else, but you would need to spend around £200 to get something as good as this. That equates to about a 2 year subscription.
What will make or break this deal is the price stability each year. A big hike in price would offend many non-business users and plenty of small business users alike.Pete :-)
Adobe revealed their real nature and attitude, and that is how they will act on customers in the future. Even if they try to hide again now: Sorry, no love for you, Adobe.
They even lowered the price in Switzerland! This shows how desperate they are. And still, they try to lure us into their one-year trap. Nice try, Adobe, but: no thank you.
Sony is leading the pack!
Swiss users are still ripped off. No discount for us. If you had one, I would do a decent twerk right into your face, Adobe.
Mike L Renner: First time commenter. After years of reading mostly negative comments on this site, I have created an account just to say enough is enough. You people, as a whole, sound defensive, judgmental, angry, and petty, not to mention that through these comments you expose what seems to be a deep rooted envy over others successes. Let the artist have his moment in the sun.
Excuse me Sir, but your comment is of the same kind as all the comments you are complaining about, only with a different target. To use your words: "let the commenters have their moment in the forum" (maybe it is the only "moment" they have?). By the way, not all of the comments are judgmental, angry etc.
backayonder: I usually take a camera whereever I go but yesterday I forgot! So anyway I was driving down the terraced street of my birth over 50 years ago and couldn't help but notice a Father pushing his child in a baby buggy being followed by a very very large clown like character that was almost as high and wide as the first floor bedroom window. it was a surreal moment and deserved to be photographed.
Alas yesterday I wasn't a Street Photographer I wasn't even a photographer but it was a moment in time that I will remember forever. Social media and Sheep has a lot to answer for.
The image is still there. It is in your memory, you told me your story and the image now has be recreated in my memory. I quite like the image (however, the white balance seems to be slightly off... lol).
Someone I know went on a long trip to Iceland. She decided not to take a camera with her. Her intention was to create all the images "just" in her head and tell us later all the stories. I quite liked it in the end, but at first (as a gearhead), I couldn't understand it at all.
Eiffel: Interesting, but I wish more lenses were covered in this review, especially some old Minolta lenses such as:300F2.8, 200F2.8, 200F4.0 marco, 100F2.0, 35F2.0, 24F2.8, "Special handshake" 28-135F3.5-4.5, etc.
the "secret handshake" Minolta AF 28-135mm is not so special in my opinion, or maybe I just haven't found out yet how to use it properly...
Elyharbour: Well sorry guys but I didn't like the old Flickr interface at all! It needed an update. Loads fast enough on my PC, but I do have a fast system that I avoid filling up with non-photo junk and programs, so I'm not best placed to comment on speed.
Great news! Does that mean you are using your fast system to fill it up with photo junk then?
backayonder: The D600 rebate also comes with a free oil change
...and they will knock $100 off that TrueCoat!
I really appreciate how DPReview staff is engaging in these news discussions. Thank you and keep up the good work! They seem to listen to their users, other than some manufacturers... (are you reading this, Sony?)
Why do they have to call their cameras differently in Europe? Is it to confuse customers or to make it look as they realeased twice as many new models?
AbrasiveReducer: Whatever camera Ken Rockwell said was the absolute worst. That's the one I vote for.
He said "Jehovah"!
Another DPReview/Amazon marketing study. Yawn.
Or - maybe, they just want give us something to click on.
VivaLasVegas: Another A99 like product, rocking solid on specs sheet, but will suck in real world use. That has been the Sony tradition for too long.
How do you know the A99 "sucks in real world use"? Have you used it yourself, or are you just parroting? Tell me your story please, I am listening.
Sony please listen, it CAN be done!
ChronoBodi: Dunno if i can tell the difference on my A65, maybe i didn't use it enough. Alas, can't we have like, added features like tethering? would be cool. And maybe extra creative effects?
Would you use it more if you had tethering?
Maybe it is more about a camera-related "pi$$ing contest" than about using it (like one guy in the city had a look at my camera and asked me "how many ISOs do you have?")
fatdeeman: I may be missing something and if so I apologise but PLEEEEASE can I BROWSE search results? You do a search, click on one of the results for a closer look and then you have to click the back button and click on the next result and so on, if I want to look at photos of a specific subject I want to sift through the photos as if I am browsing a photo stream or set, I don't want to have to keep going backwards and forwards for each result!
There is a Greasemonkey script called "Multi Group Sender". I think you need to use Firefox in order to run it. It is done nicely and works very well.
