I really love that shiny ice/lake photo.

D200_4me: I hope they fixed my nearly invisible focus point (before focus is confirmed - focus point is light gray and impossible to see in many scenes). ;-)

White with a black border would be ok. Panasonic uses that color on their latest high end cameras and it's easy to see. G9 for example. Seems like such an easy thing to fix, but who knows...'maybe' it's more complicated than we image. Really though, I'm sure they could find a way to update/improve it. I'd much rather have an easy to see focus point than 1/2 sec pixel shift times.

I'm pretty it wasn't very faint like that in previous models, but I didn't own one of the previous a7's, so I don't know for sure.

Dream lens would be a FF lens with a 10-600mm range at a constant f/1.2 and the size of the Olympus 12-100mm f/4 lens ;-) At a price of $399.

"lugging around incredibly large and heavy lenses" Maybe he needs to buy a G9 and some m4/3 lenses. :-) If the high ISO quality was sufficient (if he needs high ISO), then that would be a much lighter kit.

Great :-)

Photog didn't want to name the record label or shame them? I would, because the person replying to the photog was an a**hole and they deserved to be called out on that.

I wish they would show me how to stop my LR Classic CC 7.3/7.3.1 crashing problem after importing files :-) I'm trying to remain positive because overall I love the product, but it's getting rather frustrating.

I tried the new update and LR still crashes for me within one minute or so after importing my raw files (either a7R III or X-T2). The LR window sort of grays out and the mouse starts to spin (Windows 10) and at that point it's dead. I have to close it and let Windows kill it off. If I reopen it, it's fine (and my imported files are there and ready to edit). Frustrating.

LR Classic CC 7.3 was crashing right after importing my a7R III raw files. Importing X-T2 raw files didn't cause the crash (Windows 10). I saw a lot of complaints about the crashing on Adobe's forum so I hope this resolves my problem. I'll know in a few hours :-)

norro: What kind of name is "SmugMug"? If I'm going to be posting and potentially selling my photographs there I would like a more inviting, professional sounding, name.

Like others have stated, if you want to be more customized, you pay for a domain name and use that instead of the smugmug default name. For example: https://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/

I don’t know if anyone giving away free domain names/hosting along with free storage.

SushiCub: I was just thinking last week that I should organize photos piled up in Lightroom to somewhere like Flickr, kind of glad I didn't. I received a note saying all photos in Flickr will be transferred to Smugmug in the end of May. Does it mean I'd better wait to open an account for Smugmug until I find out what will happen? So stupid but one of the reasons I wasn't really interested in Smugmug is the name. Whenever I see it for someone's portfolio site, it looks funny

I suspect they will simply migrate the Flickr accounts to some kind of SmugMug provided infrastructure just so they can get it away from Yahoo. I'm not sure if they're sort of trying to duplicate Flickr's existing setup just so they can move all the images and accounts over to the new entity/owner or if something else will change too. I'm hoping they keep the best of Flickr but just make it better and continue to build on what already works. Knowing smugmug, I doubt they would do anything that really angers too many users. They're normally pretty good at what they do and try to keep people happy.

I'll be glad when the accounts are transferred from yahoo to smugmug so I don't have to use a yahoo account anymore or their mail service. Their site (yahoo) sucks in general, but add to that they've been violated (hacked) more often than...well I better bite my tongue and stop there :-)

It's one of the paid features, but if you want to you can buy a domain name and then use that domain as your web site name instead of using a myphotos
.smugmug . com type of address. Or maybe that option is free on smugmug, I don't remember because I've had my account for so long. However, getting a custom domain name is certainly something you pay for (whoever you decide to buy the domain name from).

Whew...the price increase won't affect me :-)

kociasek: Warning to you all – the new version of LR CC may corrupt your database!
Every time I opened the new version of Lightroom CC, my computer crashed within a couple of minutes (rebooted without a single warning). I'm on Windows 10 (64-bit). After the latest crash I can’t even open my LR catalog. I get the dialog box that it “cannot be opened because another application already has it opened”, which is not true and doesn’t change even after I restart the operating system.

Interesting. Are you at the very latest version of Windows 10 and all current Windows updates? 1709 is the latest version, plus whatever updates that go with that branch. That's what I'm on and it's ok for me.

I haven't had any trouble. I've had trouble (weird problems) in the past when my external hard drive was failing (catalog was on the external drive, or at least a drive separate from where the OS was...that drive was in trouble). If you have your catalog on a different drive, be sure that disk is ok. In my case in the past, I had a hard drive failing and it corrupted my catalog a few times. I eventually figured out the hard drive was to blame. No more trouble after replacing that disk.
