Mike CH: I am just happy that, having absolutely no use for any kind of C-Log, I don't have to pay for it in any way, and that the people who just cannot live without it finance it...

And that I got my copy of the camera before another to me completely useless feature made the camera even more expensive.

Then shoo already - git, git,...

You sound like you would be more happy with another brand, any other brand - why are you staying with Canon? If you have any Canon gear at all, that is...

ofquiet: Charging consumers extra for something that should have been in the initial release of a very expensive piece of equipment is a new low, even for Canon. It's like they enjoy torturing their customers.

fatdeeman - it was actually DPR who made that claim, not Canon...

Panasonic charged for it.

And, no - if the feature was not already present when you bought it, then you haven't paid for it, never mind how much you paid. Or do you mosey up to the supermarket and demand an extra steak because you have already bought ten yesterday?

Of course it's entitlement. The general tone is that "Canon are bad; they should have built that in from the beginning; why are they making me pay for it"

Why is nobody - who actually needs that feature - glad that Canon found a way to provide after they bought the camera, for a rather small price?

Why?

Oh, and you are severely mistaken if you think software is somehow free

Oh, the humanity...

The feeling of entitlement is strong today in DPR.

On article Adobe Lightroom CC 2015.10 and ACR 9.10 now available (64 comments in total)

What on earth happened to the fit, fill, 1:1, etc options in the upper left preview panel in Lightroom? Am I the only one who has lost those options?

Mike CH: "Game changers" abound - what are we going to call something *really* significant, like flat optics or the like, when (and if) we get around to that?

It's being theorised, and in certain cases also shown, that you don't *need* that bulge with certain optically exotic materials. *If* we get there in practical terms, *then* we will have a true game changer in photography. Lenses of hardly any weight, with little light loss, cheap(er) larger sizes of optics etc...

The ability to change lenses and focal lengths *at whim* and as I want to is the main reason I got an ILC in the first place, back when they weren't called that - so why should I purposely limit myself?

I don't get it...

Mike CH: 83 feet?!?!?

I have trees on my property that are that high!

What are they smoking?

People who pass a law saying that property rights only extend to 83 feet (why 83? Why not 85? Or 79.25? Or 31.415? Or...) above ground. I have trees on my property above that height, and people passing a law essentially saying that I don't own the tops of my trees must be smoking *something*...

On the topic of favorite lens - either EF 70-200L f/2.8 II or MP-E 65 - can't make up my mind :-)

What strikes me most is that the three top managers are also, or were until recently, actively involved in lens design...

Genchi genbutsu in more than action.

...maybe other companies could pick up something from that?

Hmm, well. Was is the exact implication of 'this is possible!'?

That is should be done? That the result is by necessity interesting? Or...?

In reply to:

Mike CH: What, exactly, is the use of the aperture ring? The aperture is the one setting, after ISO, that I change most deliberately...?!?

Just the C command setting isn't enough for me. The A auto setting, on the other hand, that has the potential to interest me. If aperture, shutter and ISO all have separate dials with A auto settings, then the mode dial can be done away with with, and free combinations between Auto settings, including ISO!, becomes possible. Is that the way it is?
