  • I respect where you're coming from, but I really do think it will settle down.  The uproar over Adobe's decision was predictable and divisive, but I think now that everyone on both sides has it ...
  • Maybe, but really is there a point?  It's not like this forum is overloaded as it is.  I think by splitting you'd just create two VERY quiet forums instead of one that's moderately busy. If we had  ...
  • Not having read through all the replies - I think things will settle back down after a while and it will get back to normal.  We're already seeing signs of this. IMHO it's impossible to separate ...
  • I'd be very curious to know just how many of those subscribers are new to Adobe and how many LR 5/6 conversions there have actually been. I have a hunch that a good chunk of Adobe's incredible ...
  • I haven't seen any real evidence of this myself.  I typically leave IBIS on all the time because as someone else mentioned I simply forget to turn it off.  I've done test shots with it on and off ...
  • Some great points - especially this one.  Nothing short of a computer failure can touch your raw files right now but the ONLY way to guarantee the permanence of your edits and preserve them ...
  • I'm not sure the analogy works.  If I rent a storage unit and stop paying - they are not obligated to continue storing the couch for me for free, and absolutely they can change the price at any ...
  • That i don't know about as I am not on the subscription so it's just speculation but  When you connect I imagine LR does a "check-in" to verify your eligibility to use the software. I'm not sure ...
  • There is no "Forever" guaranteed.  A few years ago Adobe committed to maintaining a perpetual licence indefinitely (Which many took to mean "Forever").  Adobe has every right to change so I"m not ...
  • I did this for a bit as my new camera isn't supported by 5.7.  I found lens and other camera specific info wasn't correct.  Seemed like even though LR could read the DNG it needed some info that ...
  • They're both good, but the first one REALLY speaks to me!  Excellent work!
  • I think you've had trouble getting a straight answer on the "easier to learn" aspect because it's tough to say. I made the switch to Capture One and while I'm still figuring out a few little things ...
  • I'm keeping LR 5.7 as my DAM and now using C1 Pro as my RAW processor and export JPG's into LR.  I know anything before summer 2017 that I want to revisit I can do in LR and anything after I fire ...
  • Replied in ??????
    The lightroom snapshot feature was a little more intuitive than capture one's variants... I used that more than really using the history function.
  • Both are the same -LR may allow you to include crops and rotations but it does not allow you to bring in your exposure, sharpness, and other edits in.  Is there truly any real advantage in being ...
  • This has been my experience - I'm running lightroom 5.7 with Capture One Pro as my RAW converter - to be honest I haven't used the DAM in C1 very extensively for the simple reason that lightroom ...
  • I like the Iphone suggestion as I dislike having my "big" camera on a tripod unattended in a crowd. As far as handing a DSLR type off to someone else - I dumb down the settings as much as I can and ...
  • I'd definitely be looking at the mk2.  You'd be trading for an older camera with older technology.  I never shot the a77ii but I think you'd be disappointed going back in time for an original a99.
  • Personally, I'd just shoot without either the digital zoom or crop mode and then crop the photo in post production.  You get the same result but have better flexibility.
  • My workaround has been to develop in C1 and then export the finished product as a JPG or TIFF back into my LR 5.7 catalogue. - The original RAW file stays in C1.
