I seem to be one of the few who's actually happy about this. I had two Creative Cloud subscriptions (due to the number of computers I use Adobe stuff on), but the only thing I used on either of those subscriptions was Photoshop and Lightroom.
The functionalities of both are absolute necessities for me, and I have neither the time nor the inclination to learn anything else. There's the additional fear that I'll learn something else and find that it doesn't work for me after all (like I found with Aperture), compounding the wasted time.
I called Adobe to facilitate this, and was charged no cancellation fees (they were one-year commitments, subject to cancellation fees).
So, perhaps I'm in the minority, but this guy's happy to have transitioned both accounts to the Photography Program, and thus "save" $1017.60 per year compared to what I was paying...well, at least until they raise the Photography Program rates (which I wouldn't be surprised to see after the first year's up).
Outstanding read, Amadou! Thanks to Dean and John for the insights into their careers, and the tools they use in them.
Though I am a Nikon D4 shooter, my commitment to one platform over another is mostly motivated by the glass I've already bought. (If I'd started with Canon glass, I'd be a 1DX shooter.)
As for connectivity (which was briefly discussed), I do use Nikon's WT-5, and love it. I use it mostly for iPad-controlling the D4 for shooting videos of myself, which has been great, as I previously needed someone to operate the camera, for focus, exposure, etc., which I can now do on my own.
Stunning. I have a preorder for the D4 in; and, given my Nikon glass (and a love of Nikon ergonomics), I'll likely keep that preorder in. But this 2-way wireless flash system from Canon had me seriously considering selling it all and going back to Canon, for a 1Dx, ST-E3-RT, and three 600EX-RT's (plus the lens equivalents to replace my Nikon glass).
But, after really realizing I'd need to buy a 1Dx, ST-E3-RT, and three 600EX-RT's (plus the lens equivalents to replace my Nikon glass)--*and* the huge hit I'd take on the sale of my Nikon rig--I came to my senses.
Admittedly, though, I can't stop thinking how amazing it would be to have that setup, as I do a lot of flash photography, and that level of control and functional integration from the ST-E3-RT...again, stunning. Not having to mess with a few different flashes; being able to control them so fully without taking them down from where they're at (or out of what they're in); being able to so quickly experiment with light balance...
