sharpbokeh: maybe they could put a second card in the battery grip for the mirrorless cameras

Excellent idea.

MPS Photographic: I have 40,000 images filling 392GB in HD space. Do I have any options in the new Lightroom to disable Cloud uploading of my images?

you dont need to use lightroom cc, use lightroom classic :)

As long as it is available. Maybe it will be available “Indefinitely” like the Lightroom Standalone. Sorry, I no longer trust Adobe’s word.

Because some people have to show their imagined superiority.

Spectacular, beautiful aircraft, and as said below it is not Boeing cramping the seating it is the customer airlines seating specifications.

Anyone know what a Laser pointer does to a drone camera sensor?

That was well done, enjoyed it and I think it is a good demonstration of the equipment.

Matt: Same here, if someone can map the 5D3, 1DX & 1DX II. More than happy to pay a reasonable fee.

The one at the link above has been available for a while. Works well and you can create a keyboard short cut, (on a Mac at least), to bring up the image.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (762 comments in total)

Braun Paxette, F/2.8 lens, ( it comes up with a Google search !!!), for my 15th birthday, 1955. (Yes I am that old).
I built an enlarger and used the camera lens as I could not afford a proper enlarging lens.
It actually worked quite well.

Why not just put the price tag on the neck strap and wear that.

I have to say that I wondered just why Google are being so generous.
In their world nothing is free.
I would not be surprised if this generosity ends up with Google being able to see your entire photo library.
The personal information contained in a persons photo library could give Google access to an enormous amount of information.
Face recognition alone would give them an entry to a lot of peoples activities, travel and locations, social events, and so on.

It really should give everyone pause to think about just how much personal information Google can amass about each individual.
If that says I am somewhat paranoid, I am.

You should probably mention it also gets 4GB RAM and the 4 speaker system.

It seems that it has only 2 GB of RAM.

They ignore all the reports of users saying that the permissions fix did not work. In another post, they say that there "are working on it".

Their final suggestion seems to be, if all else fails, run the thing in another account. Wow, what a solution.

I have just updated to LR 6.5 and am now frozen out with the Permissions problem.
The 6,2 fiasco cost me a lot of time trying to get back to normal.
This is teeth grinding stuff.
Adobe have me as a bit of a technology captive given the amount of work I have involved with LR but given enough annoyance I could really put some effort into becoming "Adobe Free"

I find that a lensmate thumbgrip increases comfort as you don't need to maintain a tight grip on the camera. Its easy to hold with one.

If you want a lensmate thumb grip you should start looking for one as I believe they are no longer being produced.
I think there is a thread on the Fuji Forum about it.

I have one on an X-E2 and I like it although they are not cheap but are very nicely made.

Good photos but some prop blur would lend some idea of motion to the Herc and the smaller prop aircraft.

Ben Searle,
do a search on your update problem. I believe there is a workaround.
If you got Aperture from the App store you put your version of Aperture on your computer in the trash, (do not empty Trash), go to your account in the App store and you should be able to download Aperture as you have already bought it and it should be the latest version.

WARNING, I suggest you search for this procedure as I am just going from memory and I may have it wrong but this seems to be a way of getting the latest version that will work with Yosemite

Why not just wear the price tag around your neck.
