Thank You Sony....for your upgrade. Hopefully it puts a boot in Canon's rear-end to motivate their mirrorless camera business model.
Hey Canon..taking baby steps in mirrorless camera innovation does
not work in this market

I own PSE 13....and camera raw 9.0 is all I need. With added plug-ins included...its perfect. I do have LR4, which I use occasionally.

HowaboutRAW: Is PS Elements 15 incredibly slow like PSE 14, but unlike PhotoShop CS6?

Isn't the speed based on your computer. I have no problem with PSE. My computer memory can handle it

Aggressive business model VS Conservative business model
Fuji and Sony is taking a bigger bite of the apple. I wish Canon was more aggressive

China's mountain picture is spot on exposure. Amazing detail and range of shadows.

mailman88: Legal Copyrights and who owns those Copyrights.
May not apply here. But at Major League Sporting Events it does.
Case in point, Miami Dolphin owner of Dolphin Stadium. He sets the rules on photographic ownership of all photo's taken at the stadium.
If you pay big money, you have access to photograph the sporting event.
Average sports fan who enters the stadium with professional lens, will be turned away.
Stadium officials said: Paid Professionals have legal copyrights to shoot the game, not the fan.

Found out later....not all major league teams or owners have these strict photographic rules for the common fan.

mailman88: Special access...creates special results

Another view about shooting.....I once went to a Major League Baseball Game and took my 50D and 100-400mm. After paying, stadium officials refused to let me enter with my 100-400mm. They said...my lens was a professional lens, only paid professional photographers on the field are allowed to use those lens in the stadium.

Kinda personal Kevin?
Special access to news worthy events, usually has the best photographic results. Knowing someone or paying big money for special access is common.
This 16 year old, had connections to view and shoot that close.
Sport shooters pay thousands to be on the sidelines to shoot football games.
And you also see....visitors on the sidelines who got special access for free.

Backstage Access has its advantages.

Hey Kevin, ever been to the cape and watch a launch?
Security so tight, nobody gets thru. After 9-11, even tighter.
I know what I'm talking about. Lived in Cocoa Florida, just miles from the cape.
This 16 year old got special access....Period!

Those shots are illegal, my guess. Too close to the launch pad. Press passes don't get that close. An inside job. Ever since NASA left, I guess the rules changed

There's are no permits to view a launch close-up.
Viewing areas are assigned as such. The media like Discovery Channel pays big bucks to view a launch up close.
