Sony's best firmware update ever. And the last good one.

Amadou Diallo: Based on several comments I want to clarify that the interview with Adobe is limited to the first half of the story. The Reader FAQs are not part of the interview and are intended to provide answers to some common questions readers have been asking over the last two days. Apologies if we haven't made that distinction clear enough.

It's been missed a lot, I'm afraid.

Bunch of horse pucky.

Those smart enough to know know, those that aren't will probably just buy the rental service. The sheep outnumber the wolves I'm afraid.

What is interesting to me mostly, is that the Adobe spokesperson talks about how they knew enthusiasts would react this way , but the product most affected by the "cloud" targets mostly photography enthusiasts.

hmmmmmm

leomartinez: What we are seeing here it is, may be, a generational change, a new way to understand possession and owning of things. A new understanding in which some how renting it is way better than having.

So, the way the things go, in the next future you will not buy a car but you will be suscribed to it.

Welcome to my net said the spider to the fly.
Welcome to my cloud said the lightning to the shrikes.

Excellent point. The new generation is scary stuff. All's well till electricity fails, and then its a disaster.

marike6: Let's hope there is someone in Silicon Valley smart enough to fill the void left by the departure of PS.

But this whole CC nonsense with Adobe proves that monopolies are bad for the end user, and that as consumers we must say no to the entrenched corporate oligarchy who have a strangle hold on the market.

Vote with your wallet, I say that all the time for many an issue in today's world. Feels great every time I do.

I wonder what happened to the model of business where customers state what they want and manufacturers make it. Simple, has always worked. Bottom line, I doubt customers asked for this type of product enough to warrant the change. Sounds to me like its just more profitable and that's what you're going to get.

Guess what Adobe. No it ain't.

Peter Gabriel: That a camera isn't perfect can hardly be called a bug. No camera is perfect. I would say that Fuji tries really hard to make the perfect camera, so complaining about what it can and can't do seems rather narrow sighted to me. You are free to choose whatever camera that seems to fit your every photographic need. It doesn't have to be a Fuji if it lacks functions you need.

And no, I do not own a Fuji camera ... yet.

It's not as simple as Fuji's cameras not being perfect, and unlike you I've owned a few, used many. There is something to be said about using/evaluating the product then having an opinion vs. not having owned/used the product and having one. Fuji is a brilliant company, and maybe they are trying to please too many at once with their designs.

That can be just as much of a problem as not listening to your user base. A good camera design requires balance, knowing what and who to prioritize for that particular design.

Fuji has too many bugs in their designs. Lots of promise, lots of hope, lots of genius... but at the end of the day I'm waiting till they can sort their designs properly before hitting the market. Some designs do, which makes me wonder. Their highest end cameras seem to have the most issues.

rjx: Fuji, please release a firmware so the multiple exposure mode can produce RAF files (like the X-PRO1). I was very disappointed to learn my X100S will only produce JPEG files when using the multiple exposure mode.

Multi exposure should always be available in raw, pity that more makers overlook this key desire. The K5 can take 9 shots on one raw file combined. If you do tripod work, this makes for noiseless raw files on long exposures for astrophotography or landscapes. It's simply brilliant.

On article Just Posted: Fujifilm X20 review (175 comments in total)

Quirks were the main reason I didn't like the X10, and I see the X20 still has some. Glad I held off this time around. Something about this design is so much more inspiring than other makers, at the same time much more frustrating to use than other makers. I still think the G15 is the best enthusiast compact around currently.

But bravo to Fujifilm for trying, they just need to keep perfecting the user experience with the camera by simplifying the design more (prioritizing more photo centric features) and getting rid of the quirks entirely.

Thx. Don't like the NEX-6 at all, menu and very slow turn on times are major turn offs. Yuck.

A lot more on panasonic's site including pictures of the back of the camera etc. Still haven't formed a solid opinion of it yet (if you read my last comment here), but I'm getting closer now. The finishing touch on my opinion will require hands on experience with it.

Basically my viewpoint is that this is Panasonic's Canon S100/110 with a viewfinder. And I like the Canon S100 A LOT.

Fact of the matter is that Sony is fascinated with being the biggest and baddest on press releases. 20mpx and biggest zoom on this type of camera. That's all I'm reading.

Too bad too because the body of the camera is nice and I'm seeing additions to their designs they wouldn't even consider less than a year ago. An exposure comp dial, customizable button, rubber thumb pad, hot shoe... the HX series never had those things. Its a move to the right direction but comes off as two sides fighting one another in the company itself- sales wanting headline features and designers just wanting a good camera that appeals to consumers demands. The latter should be in charge.

cgarrard: 20mpx going to need raw to salvage good IQ from that super small sensor. Unknown if it has raw so far, my guess is that it won't.

Otherwise interesting camera from a quick look at it so far.

Kanaga-
99 out of 100 people on the street don't need 20mpx either. This camera is clearly aimed for more than the average consumer with its features and manual shooting modes, flash shoe, etc. More, the prosumer in fact. But if you eliminate raw and overstuff a teeny sensor like that, you are abandoning that buyer right away. Sony doesn't apparently understand that. Why not add raw and meet those consumers half way? Having it in the camera can't hurt and you never know when any of the 99/100 consumers will suddenly learn more and be interested in raw development.

Raw is always better to have in the camera, never worse. Never.

photo perzon: OMG so ugly. Looks like an OMD on cortizone.

I like it, and I like the OMD too. But the G6 looks like it will handle better overall as there is more space on the camera. Never know till you hold one though.

cgarrard: Finally. A camera maker puts in a useable EVF into a pocket compact camera. Bravo Panasonic for doing it. Now I can sell that old Nikon P60 I have here. Let this be the norm for future pocket cameras please.

The rest of camera, well I'll have to take a look at it further and comment later.

And a useless mushy jpeg output= why bother with this camera. Should have made it 12mp w/raw, would have sold way better.
