On Fujifilm X30 First Impressions Review preview (263 comments in total)
In reply to:

photoshack: I preordered today based on the timing of things: I was looking for a "backup" camera to my 5dMkIII and was not having much luck with a used 5D and didn't really want to mess with the rebel series. I don't care about sensor size...I can take a good photograph with 6 mp. I have had a X100S (loved it but returned it because fixed lens was not flexible enough) which had the EVF that worked great. My hope is this little camera's EVF is also as good.

The fuji film simulation was really nice, and got me thinking in "chrome" colors again. Anyway, my X100S experience led me to this camera...we'll see how it goes.

in your circumstance I probably would have recommended an EOS M.. well under $400 and get the EF lens adapter.

In this age, with so many apps that do color (and B&W) film emulations (eg. Alienskin's Exposure), and do it better and with a lot more control, not sure why it's such a selling point built into camera OS.

How much different than a Sony V3 ?

A bit off topic. But can say a 6 month old baby who accidentally pushes a button on a camera own copyright? I guess I'm asking if it was the fact that an animal took the picture, or whether the issue is that an "author" of a work, in order to claim copyright has to have mental capacity to be aware of what they're doing?

raincoat: These pixmas come with full sized inks. The cheapest one is $99. The replacement ink costs $90.
Should I just buy a new printer each time?

that only works if all colors run out at the exact same time.. or do these printers use those all-in one cartridges, when one color runs out, you have to throw out the rest anyway?

I thought Slater paid the monkey as a contract photo assistant in bananas? Does this help his case?

arhmatic: 5.5 - 6" is more and more common. This will be standard in not too much time. If Apple is not doing at least 5" on the next iphone, they are pretty much out.

I should qualify my statement.. larger screened phones than my current iphone 5 would fit in my pocket.. however, I want to be able to also sit down without bruising myself.

If it stops being able to fit in my pocket, I wouldn't be interested. I don't carry a purse.

Well.. no wonder this is happening if the photo above is of their shipping boxes. They should consider plain corrugated cartons instead. ;-)

So evidently from reading comments below, this camera is assumed to have taken photos other than the staged (fake) setup shot shown in the article. Today, isn't it true a photographer would be fired if he did this for his news agency?

If LR ever goes to being exclusively CC, what are folks' guesses as to what LR only would go for on subscription basis (ie. without PS as part of it)? I'd guess about $3 or $4 per month for a prior user/owner of LR.

Or is it surmised we'd be forced to the $120/year even if all we want is LR and don't need the editing tools of PS. Or perhaps they'll come up with a LR/Elements CC deal ($5 per month)

KHemmelman: And to think I have full functionality forever with my non-cloud version of Lightroom.

"And to think I have full functionality forever with my non-cloud version of Lightroom."

True, but only with cameras that are on the market today or prior.

PicOne: How do upgrade fees (to eg. LR6) get calculated if the upgrade becomes available somewhere in the middle of your 1yr contract?

IOW, to say this $9.99/month cost structure is "permanent" doesn't mean much if LR5 is about to be replaced.

"Depending on which plan you choose, your membership includes access to..."

This is pretty clear? What is "access"? Maybe if "access" was replaced with "entitled to" that would be more clear.

All of the PR keeps repeating "Lightroom 5" specifically. Not just "Lightroom", or "the current version of Lightroom".

Stickarm: on US site navigating to all products is bouncing me to Education and student pages only. Hard typing the address I'm getting a "website declined to show this page" message.

Same on uk site.

Besides, off the street shoppers looking to buy LR -- why would they even consider going to an All Products page when they want to buy LR?

So. There seems to be a way for now to purchase the standalone. However, for the stupid people out there's sake, can u tell me how the customer "off the street" visiting www.adobe.com actually navigates to the catalog page you linked? It must be really obvious and intuitive and I'm just stupid.

What isn't said above, is that seemingly you can now ONLY GET LR IF YOU SUBSCRIBE to the $9.99/mo plan. The option to purchase standalone LR is seemingly gone from Adobe's site if you click the How To Buy link

DRNottage: I use Lightroom 75% of the time for my workflow. If they go to subscription-only with it, screw them. And Lightroom for ios only? As I said, screw them. (Because they ARE screwing us, no matter how one attempts to rationalize it.)

I think LR is already subscription-only.. At least I can't find any option to buy LR other than thru the $9.99/month model. And it's unclear, would LR be deactivated after the year's period if I don't continue paying?
