On Eyefi announces photo sharing cloud service news story (14 comments in total)
In reply to:

philosomatographer: I already have this experience (photos on any of my devices are instantly shared to my other devices, and my PC) using BitTorrentSync.

Why would I want to send my images to a for-profit corporation's servers on another continent when BitTorrentSync lets you create your 'own' cloud - securely - involving only your own machines / devices?

They are all trying to sell us something we neither need nor want : I prefer to keep my things (data, documents, pictures, everything) on my own computers and on my home server. It is enough to get all of them synched when I'm home.

And I hate my IOS devices since they managed to force you on their server, playing havoc with my mailboxes and contacts and storing my docs where I don't want them to go.
A simple card reader and a non proprietary file managers and we would be better set. Instead they are trying to coerce you on their own server.
All the same, whether Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, Google. I avoided storing things on Facebook, but now they all want my most personal data : noway !

Not sure what is new here ?

You could already upload to a smartphone or tablet and from there go to their servers ? Unless you don't need a smartphone anymore ?

Anyway : that was not a good purchase for me : it is way to slow and tricky to use. I don't use it anymore.

rrr_hhh: OK..

I have finally managed to find a direct link to download the last LR5.4 version

here is it (window version) :
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=5741&fileID=5773

You have to log in to see the link probably.

The problem wasn't with Bridge, nor with CS6, which were updated smoothly, it was with LR5.3 which always pretended that I had the last version.

So I thought I'would look in the Adobe Forums to get some more insight and perhaps a solution to my updating problem with LR ...

They are out of service, undergoing maintainance.. What a bad company Adobe has become.

paul simon king: Hmm MY LR5.3 says there's nothing to upadte as it's up to date

*scratches bonce*...

Ooops...

I have made a new comment for that. Same here, update available for PS CS6, but still nothing available to update from LR5.3 to LR5.4

At least, I'm not the only one. So hopefully they will correct this soon.

It is 12:21 PM Europe Central Time. (aka an hour later than in the UK)

Hi all,

I have a problem with this update. I own both PS CS6 and LR5.3 and have the right license for both applications (but I'm not in the creative cloud).

I first tried to update LR yesterday. But when I checked from inside the application, it said my app was uptodate.

Then I launched PS and there found the Camera Raw which I could update.

I waited till this morning to check for LR, but still no update available. And the new lens profiles while available from PS, aren't available from inside LR.

Has anyone got the same problem ?

On Meet the UK's first female press photographer news story (20 comments in total)

Where are her pictures of the suffragettes ? and of the life in London ? only military men.. that is deceiving and a very phallocratic choice to present the work of the first pressphotographer woman, especially since you say she has photographed the suffragettes.

On Revamped camera and lens feature search now live! news story (35 comments in total)
In reply to:

rrr_hhh: 1) I have clicked on four cameras to compare them, the "compare" word is now yellow, but where should I click to get to the side by side comparison ? Hovering the mouse over it a box appear showing the cameras were added to my short list, but I can't find any way to get to the comparison ! Clicking in the menu on the compare item includes all the cameras, not the ones I have already chosen.

2) it would be nice if there was a click box under each of the main category, where I could include both the RF and SLR style under mirror less, or both the large size and mid size SLR for instance.. Having to choose between a particular category or include all categories is a little annoying.

PS : I'm using an iPad Air with Safari.

I found it now after you answered to the guy who couldn't compare lenses : that bar lies at the very bottom of the page, after about two miles of black empty space due to all the adds and stuff appearing in the right frame.
I would prefer if there was a compare button in the frame allowing the filtering.

For the rest it is a nice rewamping.

Michael J Davis: Nice work!

But...went to compare lenses - clicked on them, couldn't see what to do next so went to 'compare side-by-side' & it gave me a list of ALL lenses. How do I get the compare selection to work?

It is the same for the cameras ! You can select them, they will be added to your short list (so they say), but I don't see anyway to compare them side by side.

"We don't see the smartphone as an enemy. We like to see it as representing an infrastructure which we should be making use of. (...) we'll be able to create a system which is of benefit to our customers."

What about tablets ? I will believe them when they update the remote apps and allow me to check focus on the tablet/mobile at a much higher resolution. The live view display on the 6D is a real pain to judge focus, I had great hope in using the remote app instead, alas the resolution is so low that it makes things useless, aka not really better than the camera display.

So Canon, if you are really serious, please improve the available apps for remote shooting.

As is, I can judge focus better on my E-M5 display or on its E-VF than either on the live view display of the 6D or its remote app, not even the optical VF is up to the actual mirror less offerings. It is a pain to use the TSE lenses on my 6D ! So now I'm seriously considering to replace the 6D with an A7r plus adapter

On Exposing another side of Sochi news story (178 comments in total)

It is funny : the landscape standing in the background of the stage in picture 5 is a typical tourist view of the lake of Geneva it represents the Castle of Chillon with the Dents du Midi (the mountain in the back). It is seen from Montreux. Another picture seems to represent the Asian bay of Halong (although I'm not really sure of that last location)

On Adobe adds Perspective Warp and 3D printing to Photoshop CC news story (158 comments in total)

It is interesting these continual extensions of the 9.99$ Photographers' deal :
What this tells me is that they didn't reach their subscription goal.

I for one didn't subscribe. Here in Switzerland, even after our VAT deduction, we still have to pay 40% more than US customers. I'm definitely fed up with Adobe. I own PSCS6 plus LR5 and won't get into CC.

I'm investing in other products like Capture One and DXO. i will see what to do when i can no more use CS6.

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: Speaking of Adobe products : who took their special CC offering for photographers ?

I thought hard about it, but no : I will drag CS6 as long as I can and own LR5.

I'm still angry about the way they deals with long time customers (I have it since 1996), updated to CS6 just a few months before CC was launched and felt that last update was wasted. Then came a special offering until the end of December for owners of CS6, then a few months later they made it available for anybody, and shortened the delay to the 2th December previous owners included.. Then they prolonged the delay until the 8th December. Then their servers were hacked and my credit card number probably stolen. How can I trust such a company ? They don't know where they are going.. Apparently their offering wasn't getting as much success as they hoped, or why would they make it last longer ?

@ Rossberg

Yeah.. Let's subsidize those poor US customers (GDP per capita, they are ranking 7th in the world, Norway 3d and Switzerland 5th) while their government is investing billions in wars against countries who didn't even attack them.

Second cause of anger with Adobe : now that everything is digital over the internet, how can they justify that I gave to pay 40% more than the US customers ? The offering is 9.99$/month in the US and 14.90CHF here. Our VAT of 8% is included, but I took the VAT out to compute the 40% more.

Third cause of anger : they don't care to issue the special color profiles fir cameras other than Canikon. There is only Adobe Standard profiles for the other cameras I'm using and the colors are bad (way too yellow) unlike the Canon profiles.

So I won't jump into the CC, no thank you, I'm fed up by unfair pricing. I'm investing in C1 Pro which has much fairer international price policy.
