chadley_chad: I use an old pirated copy of CS5 ... I’d happily pay a fair buy price instead but with greeedy subscription models like this, is it any wonder people like me exist!

"String .... you’re a bit of a dick aren’t you."
LOL, you are the one flaunting pirated software and spouting that you use it but you'll only pay what you deem its worth, not what it costs... Pot, meet kettle.

""and I’d happily pay a fair fee (£50) to justify the TINY amount of the software I use""
Yeah, cause PS was never more than $50. Seriously, who care what YOU would pay? You think because you dont use it enough its should be cheaper?

I'd happily pay $10K for a Ferrari because I'd only ever drive it on Sundays... maybe I should just steal one cause I hardly ever drive it?

stevo23: So it would seem they can afford to fix the Fuji x-file raw processing. I'm just sayin'...

@ stevo23 - Don't blame Adobe for Fuji's reluctance to release raw file info.

landscaper1: Good for Adobe to be raking in all those profits, but what's to stop them from increasing the annual fee to use CC? That's why I've never gone with CC, preferring to rely on my own copy of PS 6.

Why do you drive a car? What's to stop those greedy oil companies from raising the price of gas?

For the record, I've been a subscriber since it went sub based 2+ years ago... no price increases to date.

@ chadley_chad - And this is the reason why it's now subscription. PS was one of the top pirated pieces of software ever. I'll also call BS that you would buy it... you won't pay $10/month for LR/PS but you would happily fork over $400-500(?) for a legal copy of PS and another $100 for LR... yeah, whatever.

Bambi24: the standard windows 10 photo app that starts when opening JPEG / PNG / TIFF and RAW

can:
-crop
-straighten
-change white balance
-change saturation
-change contrast
-change brightness
-change sharpness
-change highlight / shadow exposure
-fix vignetting
-fix red eye flash artefact

it can do pretty much what any casual photographer needs

If you think that the Win Photo App is a replacement for LR/PS then wow... I'm actually speechless.

blackcoffee17: Oh, that's why they increased my subscription price from 9 to 10 pounds just this month then.
They increased the revenue because many users would easily pay 9-10 dollars or pounds monthly (that's for the photography plan) than pay a big sum at once, even tho the long term cost is higher in the long term.

""Canadian STUDENTS pay C$20 per month""

not for the Photography (PS/LR/CameraRAW) they don't. I'm not a student and it's still $10 (US)/month.

retr01976: I couldn't imagine being excited about photographing a celebrity. So many beautiful people and places out there. If that is what your dream is so be it, but there is so many better things in life to take pictures of than self absorbed Hollywood folks.

And no doubt officially photographing A list celebs pays much better!

Fujica: The D850 is the most interesting camera to have closer looks at.
It deserves at least as much attention as the A9 got, but DPR staff chooses to support the Sony promotion bandwagon.... again.

The RX10 has a 1" sensor, it is nothing more then a overpriced bridge camera. Not really worth looking at. Just as Phase Detection AF is also nothing new these days for mirrorless cameras.

Deflection strategy at work here I would think.

""...more then a general photography platform""
It's never been a photography platform, ever. It's always been a hardware platform for geeks. And considering Sony in the number one manufacturer for pushing hardware, it's hardly surprising. Still waiting to know why it matters so much though...

Why does it even matter how many articles there are? Are you that insecure that you need more DPR articles to "win"?

Clayton1985: What is alarming is not that there are 32 men and no women but that Nikon doesn't see this kind of negative publicity coming a mile away. Most companies now try to avoid the obvious because it's more painful to deal with than to play along whether the criticism is justified or not. Nikon should have known.

Exactly Clayton.

Defend Nikon all you want and call it whatever you want but the bottom line is yet more bad press for Nikon. The company is struggling to make money now and can't afford to keep getting bad press no matter what or where it comes from. I would think that being a large corporation, Nikon marketing would know this even if they are Japanese.

SmilerGrogan: The boys are going to have a hard time explaining why anyone would need anything besides this camera. This latest version has everything photographers and video DPs would ever need. With the addition of a few 2Ks and 5Ks you could shoot a Hollywood feature (as long as you didn't need to composite any CGI or chroma key) and still have plenty of money for craft service.
Bravo Sony.

Yep, I'm sure every other camera company will be bankrupt by year's end and Sony will drop every other model but this one.

Lichtbild: Lightroom is really really bad with removing chromatic aberations, aka color fringing.

If we're discussing the tutorial above, why did you bring up CA removal in LR?
I'm thinking you should stick to the Nikon software if it does what you want.

@ Lichtbild - If you have CA that needs correcting in every image, get a better lens.

I'm sure its a great camera however it's also nothing but pure porn for all the DPR measurebators.

Htbaa: His Lightroom isn't slow as a turd? How's that even possible?

I keep hearing about performance issues but I've yet to see it. I'm running an i7/16GB/GeForce 770 and an SSD (OS and LR catalogue). I do notice a big increase in creating the full size previews after switching from a 16MB raw to a 20MB raw but that's about it. Raw file size possibly?

tom1234567: I don't wont trick I want Adobe LR to address and fix the Fuji X-T2 PROBLEMS

irdent developer,
and other programs,
I want LR to get fixed ,

Don't blame Adobe, blame Fuji for using the xtrans sensor and keeping the raw files proprietary.
