falconeyes: Is it the 10.5" iPad Pro which creates the kind of pressure to make this kind of announcement this early?

Anyway, the 120 Hz iPad Pro with Apple Pencil was the first device I tried where drawing actually started to feel like the real thing, pen and paper. So, this is why I am wondering ...

Very true.
Many now believe that pressure sensitive pens were pioneered by Apple! Little do they know that there are far superior tech available for almost two decades that doesn't even need battery in the pen.

Wacom used the best possible display available during its release for each CIntiqs. The displays that are with such thin glass cover directly pasted on top of the LCD without any gap were not available until recently - that's why parallax on the older Cintiqs is so high.

Despite their high price, I have seen way too many Cintiqs with faulty screens - and repairing them is so prohibitively expensive that they just sit there in the studio as a showpiece. That's why I prefer their gotten used to the Intuos tablets.

In my experience even decade old Wacom tablets are quite responsive.
I don't think responsiveness was a ever problem with Wacom on a decent PC.

MarioV: "Polar bear attacked their camp", but quickly made a nice rug. Whales no doubt attacked too.. and I'm sure dolphins probably attacked too.

Overdone color grading ruined the realism.

Samb15: I am afraid you are treading on dangerous territory of getting political. Whether intentional or not, the article seems to be an endorsement of the photographer's perspective. Some folks may agree with it and others may not.

A photography review site, if covering this, should look at the technology with the rest being neutral. A headline such as "Photographer uses 'antique' style photos to make his point", showing a less politically-charged picture as the lead image would be appropriate. Saying that Mr. Balkowitsch wishes to illustrate his view of issues affecting the Dakota Indian Tribe would be okay, because it is true and not taking a position.

We have become too polarized and everyone seems to be jumping in on it. In a wold of complaints about "leftist Hollywood", "greedy corporations", "New York values", "big pharma", etc, can we please have a site that just sticks to its subject matter without preaching anything at us? DPR should be for everyone who likes photography!

JohnBaker: I also hate the regressive left as much as you do.
But that doesn't change the irrefutable historical facts about the European invaders... and it's not unique to America - look up the history of Australia and how the European invaders subjugated and almost completely destroyed the native people there.
And I am not saying all American and Australians should be blamed for what their ancestors did but we shouldn't live in denial and whitewash the history.

Owlguy: Almost the entire native American population is wiped out by systematic genocide by the European invaders and you are saying 'Victimization when there weren't any'. Wow!!

We badly need a decent substitute for Lightroom.

Unfortunately it's not available for Windows.

saiko: Adobe Photoshop needs a competitor like Blackmagic Fusion or DaVinci Resolve .... top notch software for free for most basics requirements. If you need specialized production feature you pay for it.

Maybe then Adobe will bring back perpetual licenses again.

Yes Merkaba, it's not friendly for many because they are used to Photoshop UI. I can understand and I have been trying to replace Photoshop with Affinity Photo and although Affinity Photo is really good it's taking time for me to get used to it.... as I have been using Photoshop for 17 years.

Lot of people swore by Aftereffect as it was more like Photoshop for video - but now most advanced users are going for node based editors such as Nuke and Fusion... if you see with an open mind may be node based solutions can be great for still photo editing as well.

lbpix - Yes, Affinity photo is more like Photoshop, Affinity Designer is like Illustrator. And they are in the process of making Indesign and Lightroom substitute also.... These are the only Adobe program I use - so getting as substitute suite would be great.

Isn't Affinity bringing a Lightroom like software?
They did mention it few times but I don't hear about it much anymore.
I am also eagerly waiting for it, so that I can leave Adobe for good.

Interesting interchangeable handgrip feature!
Pentax is always doing something new and innovative in their cameras unlike Canon and Nikon....

In reply to:

grey pilgrim: Another Ditto on the zero interest in the subscription model. Really interested in the App since I have a iPad Pro and pencil, but I will fight all the way to the end against the subscription model.

I'm actively researching Lightroom alternatives, assuming Adobe is going to forget their "promises" sooner or later about Lightroom continuing to offer a non subscription version.

I read that Serif Affinity is coming up with a Lightroom replacement - given their Affinity Designer and Photo - I am sure it will be a great program. Really looking forward to its release soon.

In reply to:

razadaz: A lot of critical reviews here from people who don’t seem to want to see the positive aspects of this program. Remember this is the first version of a program and it is being compared to Photoshop that has been in development for over 20 years. The program is still in development and features are being added all the time. No, it can’t make toast, change light bulbs, or fix your car, but there is a great deal it can do.

It's almost unbelievable how much it can do for such a price!
I have never seen anything similar in terms of value of money.
(Except Blender 3D - which comes in non commercial and open source category)

I have still been using CS6 and to avoid the regressive subscription based CC.

Was eagerly waiting for a worthy alternative to the monopolistic giant we have now in the 2D graphics field. Perhaps this is it. Hope they bring similar alternative to Indesign and Lightroom and there are many more companies like Serif the create a healthy and competitive ecosystem.

Just hope Adobe don't buy them off and destroy it (like they did to Macromedia 2005) and live up to their name (Adobe ranked no. 5 on a list of Internet’s 9 Most Hated Companies).

If you try Affinity it and don't like it as it's not exactly same as Adobe - try to remember how much time you needed to spend to get used to with Adobe - that will help you to give it a fair chance.
