A report on the battery's brand and type would be really helpful.

It would be great to see some size comparisons with other compact APS sensor cameras such as Fuji XT-20 and Sony 6000s

Great addition to the Fujifilm system. Looking forward to grab one soon!

ImBakinBacon: What are the major differences between Lightroom and Google/Apple Photos? I already pay for some more iCloud space for my phone photos but now I'm not sure if it's worth paying for two different cloud options. I need to play around with it some more but I assume Google and Apple Photos are severely handicapped compared to Lightroom right?

I'm really just a hobbyist and like touching up and cleaning up photos that I take but would like to have access to the complex editing tools to at least learn in the future...

@quiquae Apple photos has a straight forward start rating just as LR and the softwares do

I started to use Luminar this year and I really like it. It easy, intuitive and the user interface is really sleek. I look forward to see how they work DAM and integration with cloud services. I might just move all my images to Luminar.

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)?

Yes. They have confirmed, no stand alone LR version anymore

On1 Raw does many things well and it is a LR alternative. The new version of Macphun Luminar will include DAM compatible with cloud backup and no subscription. I think Luminar will get more customers soon.

El Chubasco: Does anyone know if updating the mobile app in iPhone losses compatibility with Lightroom classic? I’m not switching to CC and in will keep working in Classic. Will I be able to see my synced previews in my iPad if I update the mobile app?

Yes, but will the new app in my phone work with LR Classic? Or is the Classic a desktop version only with no capabilities of syncing with the cloud using smart previews.

I’m on the same boat. In fact if you compare LR CC and Apple
Photos the second is more capable than LR. I might just switch completely to Apple which offers now a lot of editing posibilities.

El Chubasco: So in summary the new LR CC does exactly what Apple Photos has been doing for the last couple of years (actually Photos does more such as printing). The difference is that Apple charges $9 for 2 TB while adobe charges $20!

Yes it does, and you can edit in other softwares without need of plugins.

Ouch! 1TB would not cut it for me and paying double of what I pay now for 2TB is kind of too much. I do not need cloud storage to backup my images, I already have one and the smart previews do everything I need now. I don't see the incentive to switch from Classic to CC besides the new interface.

fmaxwell: You might as well get an iPhone SE. The sensor size is almost identical. It's 12MP vs. 14MP. The lens is the same focal length but faster (f2.2 vs. f2.8). Unlike the Y35, the iPhone SE does macro, image stabilization (digital), panorama, HDR, and video up to 4K.

The iPhone SE has a much faster maximum shutter speed (1/8000s vs 1/500s) and a much wider range of ISO sensitivities (25-2000 vs. the Y35 with 200 & 1600 color and 400 B&W).

With the iPhone, you also get GPS, WiFi, and rechargeable LiIon batteries.

The focal length of iPhone is 18mm equivalent. The Yashica is 35mm equivalent

Jettubby: I was an early adopter of on1 raw. Made several requests for simple enhancements that could have been added as options in setup. All ignored. Reminds me of ACDSEE image viewer who asks you to pay to upgrade every six months but takes a year or more to support New camera raw files.

This on1 upgrade should be free to those of us who purchased and tested the software and took the time to make it better... that is when they didn't ignore you. No more mula from me

Sal Baker: Very poor marketing. I was a vocal supporter of the software after buying it and waiting for it to work properly. I'm not paying $80 to get a more functional version. Any increase in new purchase sales will now be more than offset by people not upgrading, forgetting about On1, and spreading considerable bad word of mouth.

Tonkotsu Ramen: Are they joking? It hasn't even been a year since the last one and they're asking for $80 for existing users to upgrade?

Beware of companies with questionable business practices like this.

+1. I recently got my 2017 version. The asking price for the update is outrageous!!

Link | Posted on Oct 4, 2017 at 22:52 UTC

$80 for current users of the 2017 version? Really? It is way too expensive. For 120 a year a get LR, PS, and Portfolio in addition to LR mobile and a bunch of apps. On1 is taking a ridiculous path that only fancy photographers will be able to afford.
