Why is it always pancakes that photographers are obsessed with? What's wrong with french toast or scrambled eggs, wish a side of sasssauge?
It's good to see real sensor innovation, rather than the fake filter innovation passed off as a different sensor (I'm look at you Fujifilm).
Seems like an epic fail for Yahoo marketing. No one can understand their new product line.
SO where do you find out you have new "activity" like on the old site? That seems totally gone. Are you no longer notified when you get comments?
If DPR had ANY shame, the would have a Sigma DP Merrill series review.
rallyfan: The Sigma DP "M" series offers excellent solutions to questions very few are asking and for which even fewer are willing to pay; a very impressive evolutionary dead end that sold slowly and performs even slower. Dreary cameras lacking what Ignatius J. Reilly would call the proper geometry and theology, taste and decency.
The rest are good choices.
Few are as brazenly ignorant as rallyfan is. I enjoy reading such misguided idiocy.
Wow....Adobe continues to get the most savage of beatings by photographers. Truly astonishing how hated they have become. But rightly so.
Dont care. This whole Adobe CC fiasco has caused me to re-look at my relationship with Adobe products. I do not like how tied down I am and will change that NOW instead of when Adobe's profits tank and taking Lightroom into the cloud is made a reality.
DonAndre: I think it's the only way for Adobe to continue making money. Nowadays you could easily skip an update and remain with CS3 or CS4. With Adobe CC you cannot do this anymore. It will be more expensive for all people that do not upgrade to every release (almost everyone I assume)! Adobe CC is a business decision, not one that serves customer needs. But please tell me how is that a cloud application? The software is on the desktop, the data is on the desktop, all the calculations are on the desktop: What's that got to do with the cloud? The cloud is mostly a license server.
Of course the first "cloud" the version will not deliver much value, but potential lies ahead, and anyway, I think this is natural evolution of software. We will have to get used to this.
And if Adobe succeeds (and they probably will) others are going to follow. Office 365 only, anyone?
Right, innovation is out so Adobe's only other way to make money is to wholesale rip off their customer base.
And I would not bet that Adobe succeeds in this. Shills like you just make it seem even more likely that they will fail.
ack231: I guess that is Adobe's way of squeezing more money of of those folks who *need* Photoshop, presumably to make up for the majority of uses for whom PS was good enough several versions ago.
It's certainly true that I am using PS less and less. And at least for a few more years (until I run into, say, O/S issues), I can keep using my old CS5 version. Yes, it won't be quite compatible with new (I guess Lightroom-only) versions of ACR, but in the (hopefully) few cases where I need PS, I can just render to TIFF from Lightroom. Of course, at that point, Lightroom/PS integration becomes a lot klunkier, which does remove one major advantage Lightroom had over Apple's Aperture.
Well, for now, I'll just sit back and wait; this won't affect me for years. But during those years, I'll certainly be giving the competition another look. If there are more customers like me, Adobe have just shot themselves in the foot, as this will affect their other product lines, too. Dumb. Bad taste in mouth.
No they dont shill. Companies are very conservative and test every new version carefully before using it widely.
You are clearly an Adobe shill, trying but failing to save this debacle from spreading.
bossnas: I'm so glad I went back to shooting on film. I don't need a subscription to any software to make prints in the darkroom or to make scans.
And with film, you get to KEEP your work.
Michiel Koolen: The Adobe Financial people have gone over this. They will lose revenue from people who would upgrade only every few years. They already accepted that 2 years ago, by only allowing upgrades from the previous version.
People who will pirate the software will keep on doing that. It will be the never ending cat-and-mouse game between hackers and DRM. Adobe has a perfect track record of losing that one. I'm sure they know that.
So what will they lose financially? A few thousand enthusiasts who would spend a few hundred dollars every 2-4 years.
What will they gain? No more need to push out updates every 12-18 months. They can add 1-2 features and boast about it. Predictable and constant revenue, for products that have reached such a maturity level it makes it difficult to come up with something new and generate revenue in a traditional business model.
The Creative Cloud is very innovative indeed. As a business model. The real innovation will now have to come from the competition.
Nonsense. you are clearly an Adobe shill. Once Adobe has you locked into their monthly payments, why do they need to upgrade at all? Where is the incentive? They have none since they ALREADY HAVE YOUR MONEY.
Adobe is losing an enormous amount of customers and is now the laughing stock of the photographic community.
If this was such a great idea, why the need for a "response"?
This is a response??
Adam Filipowicz: I bet most of the people that are complaining about paying a small fee to use photoshop, dont own a license and have a pirated copy.. becasue if your complaing about $20 then whats the likelyhood you bought it for $1000
Pirates dont pay, so why would they be whining about the price Adam? Hmmm?
You Adobe shill.
This just in.......GIMP servers have melted down due to a massive influx of people attempting to download GIMP.
Incredible that she did not take up the trip to Taiwan. Come on!! Make some time, if not now in the future.
Cue film bashers in 3...2...1...
The X Pro 1 has been out over a year. Aperture simply will not support this camera, PERIOD.
tkbslc: Funny that 30x zoom almost seems boring these days....
