I remember specifically asking if their service were to ever go down what would happen to the "Living Pictures hosting" and the response I got was that it would "always" be supported........couldn't they have found a way to have their customers continue with the living pictures hosting with another service? I bought a Lytro and this announcement has killed one of the key features the camera offers------sad!

Add a viewfinder and style it retro and they'll have a good base to continue with.

I'm sick of all the pre emptive safety......it's just killing the freedom people used to enjoy...........from drones to cameras- just too much talk of regulating them despite super low occurrences of actual causal events.......this is about over-reach, pure and simple.

Jamster007: Shame on Adobe. This is a case of putting their shareholders before their customers. They may gain in the short-term financially, but not in the long term as customers find alternatives. I don't want my memories held to ransom somewhere in the cloud. I'm not a cheapskate as I and spend thousands on photography, but this isn't a model that I want to buy into. I think that this will be a turning point that other photo editing software companies benefit from. Both Affinity Photo and Macphun are catching up with Adobe at a functionality level, and they will do especially well if they can find a seamless way for Lightroom users to migrate their photo libraries (possibly using the DNG format?). The alternative in years to come is that I run Lightroom in a sand-boxed virtual machine just to maintain access to my photos, but I’d much prefer to migrate and have my photos in one location.

Miksto is replying to anyone not embracing this subscription based announcement........clearly an Adobe employee or similar.

SteveNunez: Subscription based pricing only seems to work with content that is delivered to the consumer- such as Neflix, Hulu.........we don't want to pay for every piece of software we use on a monthly basis.....the consumer is already financially stretched as it is with cable and cell-phone service costs, now we are to add software billing?
Subscription based software isn't for me.......I don't mind paying for software once but not on a monthly basis!
MacPhun will do well with this news.........hopefully Adobe will get the message.

Just because there are people who pay for subscription based software doesn't mean people will continue to do so when alternatives exsist........you will see this new software will have diminished numbers of subscribers as many will simply purchase Luminar Neptune or Capture One or other alternatives.....Adobe is not the only software company to offer a good image editing application and subscription based payment will progressively decline.
Just scroll down and look at the response- many simply don't like this approach to software......I'm not alone in this dislike.

"Going" to kill ILC's"- not sure about that.......no way to zoom optically with real quality at 100% is a challenge- but the've certainly killed the P&S category!

On article DJI launches Phantom 3 SE entry-level camera drone (81 comments in total)

Yuneec has to respond as the Occusync (DJI) technology has them behind in flight range and video transmission distance.......as much as I like DJI products I'd like to see other drone manufacturers stay in the game (competition is good) but it's hard to beat DJI as their tech (currently) is just leaps ahead of everyone else.

I think future cameras will eventually feature huge on-board memory and cards won't be needed.........just my .02 cents prediction for the years to come.
I don't think it would be too costly for manufacturers to simply include huge 1TB or so chips in the future.

I wish them good luck with this drone.......it's nice but with DJI's super successful Mavic Pro stealing all the headlines and sales success- I think they'll need to lower the pricing a bit to be competitive in the crowded drone market. (Not to mention low confidence by consumers.) The Mavic is just killing it right now- DJI can't keep up with the demand!
I wish the Karma was smaller........but alas, best of luck here!

Disappointed- was expecting a bit better......Sony A6000 series is clearly better (pun intended!)

Received mine and VERY satisfied. Tested mine with a Panasonic GF7 camera and 14-42 II lens and it worked great. GripGear has a specified weight capacity of 350 grams and using a USB power bank removes the weight of the AAA batteries used in the motored head allowing a weight savings for small camera use.....GM1, GF7, RX100 etc should all be fine and give the user the ability to create smooth slider footage.
(You can hand-slide the head unit without power and thus use even heavier cameras as the geared motor would not be subject to stress.)
Highly recommended~

I don't think it was mentioned anywhere, but you can order extra track and make the slider as long as you'd like.....extra track is under $15 on Amazon and makes this very versatile and adaptable......I will be shooting video demonstrating it when it arrives.

Gravi: Looks nice and portable. If I read it correctly, I can use it with my Panasonic GM1. Awesome!

I'm planning on using with GM1 as well!

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1397 comments in total)

Wow, I'm unimpressed.....for $2000 I thought we'd get much better detail and shadow/highlight detail retention and when compared to the old EM10 and the tiny Panny GM1, I see nearly identical results using the "comparometer".....I'm not seeing a jump in image quality to warrant a $2K price when cameras like the Sony A6500, Fuji XT2 and even the full frame Sony A7II can be had for less........this is a "no buy" for me.......for half the cost you could get the Canon M5 which seems like it would surpass this camera in still image quality............was really wanting this MKII- but not anymore. I'm sure it'll suit many buyers but the quality jump in m4/3 seems limited if this is the best Oly can do...........let's see what the GH5 can produce........if there's no jump in IQ then I see the m4/3 just stagnate or become video-centric cameras.

This seems to be a rebadged "Eken H8R"- I have one and it looks virtually identical....even the remote looks the same!
