lbpix: I just hope they bring out a replacement for the iPhone SE so I can have a phone which fits semi comfortably in my pocket.

Oh dear! Didn’t know that. I’ve had iPhones since the model 3GS (which was a much nicer shape than the 4 / 5 / 6). May have to abandon Apple eventually.

On article Fujifilm's XF10 is a small, wide-angle APS-C compact (878 comments in total)

Very disappointing, no shutter speed dial, no aperture ring, no tilt screen. Bring back the x70!

As soon as they increase the photography subscription, I’ll be off. I love Lightroom but will not support blatant profiteering - they’ve just posted MASSIVE profits, why up prices now?

It looks to me as though you need two hands to put the cap on. That means putting the lens down on a flat dry surface - not always convenient. I normally hold the lens with one hand and remove the caps with the other so I don’t this this would work for me.

On article RIP Lightroom 6: Death by subscription model (1633 comments in total)

I’ll be leaving Adobe for good as soon as I find an alternative which combines management and editing like Lightroom does. Looking forward to Macphun’s offering.

The content of the mag is good, but the interface is awful. Navigating pages is always a challenge and I really can't see any advantage over a conventional, swipe-to-advance type of layout. Hey Fujifilm, you are good at listening when it comes to cameras, how about making your magazine more user-friendly!

tikus: For a photographer, there are a lot of software that can replace Lightroom. The problem is I haven't found any software that can replace Adobe Photoshop yet.

I have the reverse problem, it's a replacement for Lightroom I need. What do you recommend (for Mac)?

toni2: There are people that still think that suscription (a rent) is cheaper than purchase.

Anyone can think that a company like Adobe, will sell you a thing cheaper if they can sell it more expensive?! Think a little, please...

I have no problem with them offering subscriptions, it's the fact that they are no longer offering stand alone products - or are not upgrading them - that makes me angry.

lbpix: Your heart bleeds for them, only making record profits in excess of 5 billion in 2016.
We badly need a decent substitute for Lightroom.

Saiko - That's interesting! As I understand it Affinity is more like Photoshop at present. A Lightroom alternative wold be great.

Yes, PLEASE do review on this interesting filter. I suggest you use a camera which has a high sensitivity to infra red - my Fujifilm XT2 is a good example.
I have LEE big stopper and Hoya NDX400, both are prone to colour casts (although it can mostly be corrected in Lightroom). I find the degree of colour cast varies hugely, so maybe it's due to infrared contamination.

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with Nikon DL compacts (310 comments in total)

Well call me a curmudgeon but I cannot understand why Nikon and Canon keep omitting viewfinders Sony have learned that photographers like to be able to compose in bright light without holding the camera at arms length; they are now building cameras with viewfinders. Being able to compose properly is far more important then having high resolution sensors and superb lenses. When I buy a car I expect a built in steering wheel not an expensive optional extra.
Just my opinion.

On article Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 (77 comments in total)

Yes I too will wait for the X-T2. I love the X-T1's evf better than SLR. Mostly use 14mm and 18-135 zoom, so ovf is no good for me.

To me a camera without a viewfinder is as useful as a car without a steering wheel. However - different strokes for different folks I guess.

On article Fujifilm X100T Review (695 comments in total)

Good review but I strongly disagree about the shutter speed dial, to me it's the easy setting of aperture and shutter speed which makes Fujifilms X series stand out from the pack, I would be most annoyed if they decided to to remove it.

I totally agree, both Canon and Nikon are wasting time with half hearted attempts like this. Give us a Fuji x-t1 equivalent with an adaptor so we can use our SLR lenses during the migration to a new, lighter, smaller but capable system. Otherwise we will jump ship. Having tried an X-T1 I'm already teetering on dumping my D800 kit.

I'm amazed that so many folk are all fired up about a simple statistic. Flickr didn't say iPhones are better than cameras, just that they have had more uploads from them - a simple fact. My Nikon takes far better quality photos than my iPhone but it isn't always in my pocket.

On photo Eaglehawk Neck, Tasmania in the Sand Patterns-2 Beaches & Rivers challenge (1 comment in total)

A very nice image, but I would have cropped top and bottom to exclude the grass and most of sky.

I think a mirrorless full frame would be great. I've really enjoyed using the Fuji XE but love the quality and dynamic range of full frame. Go for it Nikon.
