I am ready to pay a decent price for a good peace of software. But I have the irrational feeling that Adobe is taking control over my PICTURES. Once I stop paying the software will stop working and I will loose access to my own artwork? No way.
AndreyT: At first one wonders what was the point of reposting these images again, after we have seen them hundreds of times already (they were making rounds around the Net for a few years now). But then one notices that there's an obvious political bias in the selection of these images: out of all those well-known Lego photo recreation pictures only the ones were cherry picked that fit certain propaganda-censorship agenda. And then a few "neutral" pictures were added to masquerade the original intent. Apparently someone at "dpreview staff" saw this veiled trolling opportunity and took it.
whould you be so nice and share the links to the other sources in the net you are talking about?
Wonderful! Did you get them all?
I once loved Nikon. Then I discovered my Fuji X100 with all the manuals on the right place in a clean design. Now I hoped to use my lenses again, but the design is all but clean. Not for me. Sorry Nikon.
It comes close to what I experienced. The 35mm lens for the portrait might not be the same as my DSLR 60mm or 90mm, but the reactions of the people are much much more positive. So I do have pictures where normal persons accept to be copied into a digital camera. Even for this my X100 earns nicer comments than my X-E1.
Of minor interest. Nice idea, but not more.
If somebody takes a foto of mine in the street where I have at least a chance to meet him and communicate with him/her I am potentially able to decide about it.
When somebody takes pictures of me without any chance of personal reaction or simple human exchange I totally disagree. I feel like somebody is stealing someting. Fact is that the "hunter" uses me as a simple object.
For me it is part of my freedom and respect in human interactions to at least have a chance to say "no".
macker: Any chance the might do something for Fujifilm X System ??
I asked them and the answer was "not yet".
I love the tool in addition to lightroom since version 2! Still I miss the fuji x sensor support and that turns me mad. In particular I used it for a quick preview and a complex renaming. But if it does not read fuji RAW files ...
tcab: What about Fuji x100 raw support - doesn't that need improvement too?
Most people can't get x100 raw to look as good as in camera jpeg, which shouldn't really be the case. I've tried it myself and simply gone back to jpeg - it's just too hard fiddling with the raw files.
Has Adobe forgotten the x100 and the x100s?
The X100 in opposite to X100s, X-E1, etc. has a standard pattern. Once the RAW file read all optimizatin algos work fine as on all other sensors. Therefore until now X100 RAW files looked better in some situations that the X-E1 RAW files.
It takes a great expertise to optimize something that is relatively new. Let's see if now the X-E1 can produce images that look sensibly better than the X100.
I never imagined it as such a manual and industrial process. Nice.
nothing really new. for a overview, even for beginners, really not complete enough.
I do own a X100 for some time and upgrade it by a X-E1 for some weeks now. I thought it was an improvement of the X100. But after some time I feel like the X100 is still a camera I like to have with me, I love to take pictures with and where the results still let me smile. The mechanical interaction with the camera (aperture ring, size, ...) is IMHO much more intutive that the X-E1. So the simple idea of a boosted X100 without changing the body's design let me think of this irrational upgrade I will plan for 2013 :-)
I appreciate the info you share on this X100s. I will allow myself to sell the x100 right now and wait for the upgraded X100s. It feels as fuji pushed my beloved X100 to something I expected from the X-E1.
Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 are not supported. So I love the product but have no reason to updrade :-(
Years ago I choose Nikon because the handgrip was perfect for my hands. Now I choose not to buy the D600 as for me the grip was simply unpleasant. I could not imagine myself using it. Sorry Nikon.
marcuz: I've a question about the release button, since it appears to have a threaded hole, but I'm not sure about it from the pictures I've seen: does it accept traditional cable releases?
Yes, and it works well :-)
