In reply to:

composed: I wish Adobe would put a little more effort into making Bridge CC more 'modern'.

Personally, I have zero use for Lightroom even though I pay for it monthly...

Adobe announced last year a major speed up of Bridge.

OzarkAggie: You'll get no sympathy from me, but you might take my recommendation and look at ACDSee. By chance I saw a tutorial on transferring the database so no concern there.

Cannot do conversion of all the edits though. :-( If it could I would have switched already.

Mutovkin: So DPReview needs detailed comparison of all current major raw processing apps: LR, C1, DXO, Topaz Studio, Luminar, ACDSee, Aftershot and compare features (lens corrections, chromatic aberration correction, shape correction) and quality (noise reduction, detail (without sharpening), highlight and shadow recovery) and give a score for each of the items. That would be a useful article, especially if it would be updated as new versions of the apps get released.

Darktable and Digikam too.

Boeing skipper: I think I'm done with Lightroom's appalling performance, it's just too slow, despite top specs on my custom-built PC.
This subscription scheme makes them less willing to improve their softwares and I think I have been waiting long enough.
Any recommendation?

Consider ACDSee. Much faster and uses much, much less memory.

On article Should you upgrade to a Nikon D850? (663 comments in total)

I bet I am not the only one getting very annoyed with non-D850 news on your main page. It clutters things up and makes it hard to find the D850 articles. Can we just dispense with all of the other garbage and concentrate on the only thing everyone is interested in? The D850!

yanisha: Is Mikael Cho himself making money from this? I suspect he is or is trying to create successful website and then cash out like Phil Askey did with this one. If he is trying to get rich off the free work of others then that is shameful and no one should help him. If he isn't then this is sort of like open source software.

Of course, on reflection I realize that our comments here and in the forums are free content we create so dpreview can make money. Not so different than what Mikael Cho is doing. Phil did reviews and stuff too though whereas Cho seems to be adding nothing but a website to hold the free photos people give him.

Generally the same philosophy behind open source software -- which many photographers use and are glad to have and have no qualms about.

"for some God damn reason" -- Sheesh, is this really necessary?!?! I immediately stopped reading at that point.

Photos taken with self-timer not owned by photographer?
Photos and videos taken from a drone not owned by photographer?
Photos triggered by movement, etc. not owned by photographer?

Probably many more.

In reply to:

Henry Richardson: I normally don't make predictions, but this one is a slam dunk. There will be some people who will buy this lens and in the first month make more good, interesting photos than some of the photo snobs here with their high brow gear will make in a whole lifetime. You can take that to the bank. :-)

Only if they denigrate and look down their nose at people using phone cameras.

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1060 comments in total)

I have searched through the PEN-F manual and I can find no mention of these terms you used:

'Classic Film Monochrome'
'Chrome Film Rich Color'
'Chrome Film Vivid Saturation'

Where are they and what are they?

"The question now is, does the extra 10mm of magnification make the lens a long normal or a short portrait lens?"

It is an extra 5mm, not 10mm.

On article Hands-on and in-depth with the Sony a6500 (556 comments in total)

From the photo it appears that the A6500 is significantly larger than the A6300.

Just wondering. If you have your photos on a disconnected hd and are using Smart Previews *and* have selected the option to write changes to an XMP file what happens if you edit using the Smart Preview? Does it wait until the hd with the photos is re-connected to write the XMP? Does it never write the XMP? Does it write it some other place?

I updated to LR CC 2015.6 yesterday. With 2015.5 it rarely used more than 2gb of ram and even then only after I had been using it a lot. Usually it was between 0.5 and 1.5 gb. With 2015.6 though I am often seeing that it is using more than 3gb of ram. Doing the same kind of work, same size raw files, etc. When I first start 2015.6 it is using about the same as 2015.5 did when it was first started, but after using it awhile it often gets to more than 3gb. Anyone else seen a dramatic increase in the amount of ram used?
