CreeDo: Still waiting for all the disasters people say come with the CC subscription model.

• In the long run it'll cost you more!
Well, if I bought CC from the day it was released in 2013 til now, I'd still have paid less than half the cost of Photoshop CS6.

• They'll jack up the prices once they lock you in!
Hasn't happened.

• You'll be locked out of your files if you fail to keep paying!
Hasn't happened.

• All your stuff will be uploaded to the cloud against your will and they'll own the rights to all of it!
... No. Never was going to happen.

• You won't be able to use it if you're not online!
Who isn't online anymore?

• They'll stop bothering to update because there's no incentive!
I use stuff like photomerge, ACR filter, smart sharpen, HDR merge every day.

Would I prefer a choice to own for a flat fee instead of rent? Sure, choices are good. But I'd probably STILL go with rent because the sting of $1000 (even if it's just one time) is significant while $10/mo. is painless.

Adobe wants to hook you with the cheap monthly fee, but the real issue is in the long term.

On article Hot mess: Remembering the Leica M8 (63 comments in total)

Well, Barney, I agree with most of what you said, but I love my M8 warts and all. It is a different shooting experience and together with my M2 I can change between the two no problem.

When I am in the mood I just love the M8, the jpg's are a waste of time and the DNG's are really very good. I just bolted on a 50mm f/1.4 and shoot away. I don't even bother with metering and just use Sunny 16 (and still get better results than when metering).

The monitor is rubbish but as I don't chimp that becomes rather irrelevant. As you said the shutter is about as discreet as a slap in the face. You can recover good amounts of data from the shadows in the DNG files which are best processed in Capture One Pro.

For some strange reason I do get very good B&W's from it.

It's great fun to shoot with. It is very much a Marmite camera.

It's very Leica - the Marmite camera company.

@ GEONYC Apple Addicts are generally more laid back than Apple haters whose irrational hatred of a company whose products they will never buy makes them the tech equivelent of extremist religionists. Crass, dumb facists.

Personally, I don't care what other people use. People's preference is OK with me. Nothing like an Apple article to bring out the Trolls and their perjoritives.

Nukunukoo: Wold definitely be a game changer IF Adobe Photoshop port their apps to run on the Pros with Pencil support. The new IOS 11 can handle it now... Edit: Affinity Photo is now on the Pro. FTW =)

Affinity is FAB, it's British, inexpensive and I have switched.

Wye Photography: No doubt it will occasionally crash for no apparent reason, randomly blue screen, not work without third party support, require continued patching, not start correctly, require someone with an MCSE in attendance continually, send all your usage data "somewhere", repeatedly say in an annoying robotic american voice "it seems you are taking a photograph" and then display the message "you don't have permission to take this photograph, please see your Administrator".

But its all going to be a ride.

@Random Photographer I have edited ncsi.txt so it now points to www.apple.com

Problem Solved.

Jesting aside, I am surprised that Microsoft wants to develop this tech considering the status of its phones. I wonder what they are planning. It will be interesting to see how this develops. Good luck to them!

cosinaphile: yes insanely expensive port crippled no sd slot disaster ,,,, almost as bad as apple .....is this a race to the bottom for connectivity and used convienence

this machine should have sd slot two usb c 2 usb a at least

@Reative, you can't propose a solid and mature argument so you resort to pejorative.

I use Apple because I like it. My choice. My preference. If you are happy with Windows then that is fab! Resorting to insult is crass.

I do take a positive though in that I have more money than sense and you so obviously do not. Are we jealous?
