I too am disappointed, even angry with Apple. I think you sum up the situation we Aperture users find ourselves in very well.

My ( elderly) MacBook has just died.

The loss of Aperture has taken away a prime reason for my Apple loyalty.

I may well get a Windows laptop and dabble with Lightroom..... Even though I really don't want to..... sigh.......

I'd rather have a V3 or J5 than this out dated tech.

In reply to:

AngryCorgi: I'm assuming this is an Aptina sensor still. Can anyone verify?

Thom Hogan seems to think it is the Sony BSI sensor with Nikon PDAF - great news if it is!

In reply to:

Mike FL: It was then:
FUJI X100 = Leica M Body + Fuji sensor

Now:
Nikon 1 J5 = Pana GM1 body + SONY (?) sensor

But:
At least that Fuji's sensor is developed by Fuji self so does Pana.

BTW:
Pana GM1's kit zoom is much wide/useful than Nikon, not mention M43 sensor is larger than 1" even (possibly) this J5's body is larger than Pana GM1.

Not bad as a later start.

The Fuji sensors are Sony sensors with a Fuji X Trans overlay.

Sangster: Nikon will sell more units to upgraders if they offered body only at around $300-350.

Body only is offered in some countries.

Why don't more camera makers build this into their cameras?

Good to see Sony offering a selection of interesting and well thought out A7 cameras.

Is it OK to want all three? :)

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1059 comments in total)

So the D7200 is really what the D7100 should always have been - a cracking DX all-rounder camera with a PROPER SIZED buffer!

Now where is the D400.....

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (318 comments in total)

Why are these cameras called "Rebels'?

Surely its Sony that are the rebel camera maker these days?

These Canons are so conservative they ought to be labelled "Comfy Slippers"

'cos they ain't no rebels !

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II First Impressions Review preview (1392 comments in total)

I see Olympus has learned a lot from observing the Nikon 1 cameras - lets have a different control layout on every model - oh and while we are about it lets change the battery too! Bonkers!

Do these companies go out of their way to alienate existing customers?

Its sure seems like it....

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)

Canon and Nikon especially keep on churning out the same old cameras with annual 'updates'.

When are they going to really take a long hard look at the ease of use and convenience of a smartphone and start to bring all of those features to their cameras?

Proper WIFI, editing, GPS, mapping, linking to Facebook, Instagram, APPs, Decent touchscreens, 4k Video, etc etc.

Why not rethink lenses and lens mounts?

Why not some pioneering mirrorless from Canon and Nikon?

The longer they try and protect their existing concepts the more outdated they appear.

Its not just Canon and Nikon - ALL the manufacturers need to wake up to 21st century realities!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (387 comments in total)
In reply to:

electrophoto: what a load of nonsense.
Selfie...

what has it come to for so many?
"selfie ergo sum"?

I never understood the need to pose in front of stuff to basically have a photo that is crappy but shows me at place X...
I less then not understand the modern selfie at arms length.
Crappy photo and an absolute waste of everyone's time.
But the social sharing crowd seems to love it.
Amongst with heavily discoloured "vintage" style photos of every bit of food the selfie is going to eat and cat pictures.

Whenever you need an idiot there is usually one to be found close by...... I'm with you on not really understanding 'selfie' cameras.....its what mobiles are for?

Great article! I shall continue to enjoy my little 1" sensor Nikon 1 cameras happy in the knowledge that they are 'just right' for me! :)

An impressive new DSLR from Nikon. I hope they can translate some of this tech into a smaller mirrorless body - that would be cool!
