Androole: What a bunch of grumps. Unbelievable, really, the level of vitriol on display.

I enjoyed the image.

What did you enjoy? And how would someone “enjoy” a photo?

Clyde Thomas: Congrats to all who want the a7RIII. Though it's popular to compare with D850, I think it more appropriate to compare with AMount a99II, which got most of these upgrades over a year ago, and still has higher frame rate, more LCD articulation, front multi controller, full matching vertical controls, more compatible battery, larger lens selection with linear MF, etc...

As welcome as the a7RIII is, I'm always amazed how the same or better specs from a year ago in AMount a99II go unappreciated. Yes this a7RIII is groundbreaking for EMount. Compared to AMount, not so much.

Man, A-Mount is dead.

My top faves are:
1) Better battery life
2) Touch screen
3) USB-C for my MacBook Pro

I only wish they introduced a newer sensor. At the end, we're talking about Sony and its great sensor technology.

Are you dumb?

@Tazz93 and all those who up-voted you.

I prefer if they kept it a paid App. Cheep people like you usually bring down innovation by asking everything to be free. Look what happened to it after "They gave it away for free"? Did nothing and discontinued it. Is that what you wanted?

I meant for progressing and developing the product. I am one of those who actually paid for it before Google bought them.

How dare a company advertises for its products?

Androole: $70 to increase contrast and crush the shadows, eh?

@ozturert
True but one starts by paying $300 and then they ask for another $70 for 15 presets. Is that a good deal? That's 3 years of Lightroom+Photoshop!

I am not saying subscriptions should be the only option. But prices should be reasonable (relatively) for the standalone Apps. I bought Affinity Photo last week for $50. Now, that's a good value.

And people complain that Adobe charges $120 for one year for Lightroom+Photoshop!

adegroot: where are the exciting landscape photos with good light, taken with really sharp lenses? So far, haven't seen any.

@Carey Rose

Apologies, Carey. I didn't mean you personally. I would like to think that your employer would give you enough time to make sure you have enough time and right means to do your job as it was intended.

Besides, most of photography can be subjective.

Binone: Frankly, I'm mystified by all the negative comments. Adobe is developing technology to improve its product and, from these examples, it's a significant improvement over the current content-aware fill, which I wouldn't call "crap", because, while far from perfect, it's saved me hours of retouching. Perhaps "deep fill" isn't ready for release yet, but it's clear that this can be a more effective tool then the current one. I hope that it makes it into a future release of PSCC. If anyone thinks that the result is "fake photography", then, like the current tool, there's nothing that forces you to use it.

Tungsten Nordstein: How come DP writers can use words like those beginning with C and ending with P, but we cannot?

Is this really setting a good example?

No way. That’s crap. :-)

Agreed. Most of those people think they are smarter while do nothing but clicking. Just a bunch of degenerates.

ManfredGrebler: Not too impressive.
All examples still require a lot of manual work. So you might do it manually from start in nearly the same time.

In reply to:

landscaper1: There's an obvious solution to all this confusion and controversy. Either you find the money to charter your own plane, or you can just limit your travels to anywhere you can reach by car, train, or ship.

Actually, there's a lot to be said for the latter suggestion. It's been a long time since commercial air travel was as comfortable and hassle-free as cars, trains, and ships. Heck, I still get angry when I think about my experience on my last plane flight, and it was in 1st Class, no less.

What if people want to fly from Europe, Asia etc... to USA? Can they use commercial ships?

@Carey Rose
Everybody does, I guess.
My point is/was, if someone is supposed to test a camera for landscape, that person should go out and shoot landscape. The employer should allow him/her enough time to do the tests.
