D200_4me: If anyone is going to switch away from LR, what they also need is an option to import all the edits that were already made to the photos in LR. Otherwise you have thousands of photos that are no longer edited. That's the biggest hindrance to switching to something other than LR.

Well then there are things like split toning, the camera profile that was selected in LR, post crop vignetting, adjustment brush, radial filter, clarity, vibrance, etc, etc. I think there are lots of things that can't be easily imported to any other brand's software. I would hate to lose all that. If Adobe would simply lower the price to $5 per month and only include LR (I don't want PS), I would be ok with that. Looks like I might have to end up being ok with $10 per month too. We'll see. Depends on how aggravated I am later. Like I said, I won't want to lose all that work, even if it's just my hobby. I put a lot of time into this and it's just really disappointing to lose the standalone version going forward.

Right...and I made sure i have a downloaded copy of the LR6 installer. Just in case.

Sure, but you'd lose all the history behind the edits, but yes that's one way around it to keep both the raw and the edits. Also I realize the edits in LR couldn't all be exported somehow to a new program because there are many features that might only be in LR and those specific edits wouldn't match up with some other program's features.

D200_4me: Have they officially announced there will be no new standalone version or is this just an assumption based on all the news about the subscription based versions (two of them now - LR CC and LR CC Classic)?

Oh....crap. Like many people, I have a lot of time and thousands of images in my catalog so i'll have to think hard about what to do going forward. For now I'm fine with LR6 until a new camera comes that I want and then maybe no native support for it in LR6. I don't mind the subscription but like Richard said, $79 per upgrade when you really needed it was cheaper than the $120 per year, every year for the sub. I'd feel more comfortable with $5 per month. I can afford their price, but that's not the point.

And it makes a secret copy for itself (and the app's staff). ;-)

D200_4me: So, is 'Lightroom Classic' considered an upgrade to Lightroom 6 and therefore a paid upgrade?...or is it a free update to LR6 like any other 6.x update?

Exactly.

Also, I think I get it now. The former subscription based version of Lightroom was Lightroom CC. THAT has been renamed as Lightroom CC Classic (still a monthly fee) and the NEW version of the subscription version of Lightroom is now called Lightroom CC. AND the standalone version we know as Lightroom 6 is still Lightroom 6 and there's no update for that yet. So it's like 3 separate products now, not 2 as in the past.

I asked Adobe and this is the conversation:
Me: Is 'Lightroom Classic' considered an upgrade to Lightroom 6 and therefore a paid upgrade?
Adobe: Currently there is no upgrade released for Lightroom 6.0
Me: Ok, so if I click the option in LR6 to upgrade, it's going to force me into the 'lightroom classic cc'? I just don't want to be paying a monthly fee.
Adobe: That only am saying there is no upgrade released for Lightroom 6.0. Only the CC version is released today.
Me: OK, so is Lightroom Classic CC considered a separate product then?
Adobe: Yes. You are correct. Lightroom Classic CC is the separate product now.
Me: OK, so will there be an upgrade to LR 6 or is that being phased out and you must use LR Classic CC going forward? (Or Lightroom CC)
Adobe: Currently we don't have the information on Lightroom 6 upgrade

On article Meet the Canon PowerShot G1 X III (294 comments in total)

It looks like a nice camera...if the Fuji X line and Sony alpha series didn't exist. Difficult to justify spending that much for a fixed lens camera when you could buy something like the Fuji or Sony APS-C models that have interchangeable lenses.

I saw some of that behavior in Yellowstone too. Pretty much any park I go to, I see that. People love to get close to the black bears in the Smokies. Some day they may run out of luck. But sometimes, the wildlife comes to you and there's nothing you can do. Like this summer while I was driving in Yellowstone. I came around the corner and there they were in the road ;-) http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Panasonic-GH5-Gallery/i-HbMwZWk/A Mom, dad and the baby.

Smartphones have come a long way. I'll still prefer to use my camera, but it's nice to have a pretty good backup in your pocket for those other times when you don't have a camera with you otherwise.

Maybe a simple chain link fence would help out (to keep out *some* of the larger critters). What's more sad is to see how some humans treat other humans. These are animals and they just go by instinct. Humans have the capacity for love, hate, compassion, etc. Think about how some adults abuse children in various ways (horrible ways). Now that is truly sad and heartbreaking. Having said that, I love nature and hope we can always have refuges for all the wildlife and habitats good for them, naturally. There's a reason why those subdivisions with large mature trees are more pricey and desireable than the stripped treeless new construction. Because everyone loves nature whether they know it or not.

D200_4me: I'll take a mirrorless version, please. With phase detect AF and all the modern goodies we all love on a mirrorless. A great EVF is a must of course.

I've considered the Sony line already and passed on it. I saw too many complaints and examples of quirkiness posted on youtube about the A7 series and I'd rather not go down that road. Just my personal preference. Besides, I tend to like the way Nikon does things in general (regarding their menus, flash system, overall look and feel of images from their full frame line, etc). Again, just my personal preference. I've been tempted by the Sony line, but I avoided it for various reasons.

FYI - Shallow depth of field is not always an advantage. As with many things in life 'it depends'....in this case, it depends what your subject is.

D200_4me: I must not get out enough. I've never heard of Chris...and many other photographers I'm apparently supposed to know about ;-) I've heard of Joe McNally (and met him in person) and heard of Ansel...you know the one....

Will do...

GabrielZ: Every time this camera comes up, all anybody seems to talk about are its (great I'm sure) video capabilities. Not its still camera ones, which I conclude by this, aren't so hot then?

Thanks. I also prefer the Panasonic look over the Olympus look (raw files, using Lightroom). I've had several Oly camera like the E-M1, but I much prefer the Panasonic images (my personal preference). Also love the look of images from the Panasonic 14-140 (new version) compared to the new or old version of the Olympus 14-150mm.
