  • I think it will be on the next update, as deliveries of the camera become more frequent.   That is the hope anyway.
  • The 20mm 1.8 is one of Sony's value leaders.  Great lens, great build, reasonable price.  I like the 45mm 2.5 I bought.  Having had the Samyang 35mm 1.8 and the 45mm 1.8, I find the Sony sharper, ...
  • It's interesting to see you write about the same lenses with a slightly different approach and yet still come to a similar conclusion.  At this point, many people believe that the lenses are a ...
  • I don't think the price is unreasonable with the features you are getting. Do I wish it was cheaper? Yes. Unfortunately, additional features take money to develop and with the increase in...

  • From a software developer standpoint, having the same code for the same function is the way to go.  The interface changes - with the plugin, it has to work with Photoshop and with Affinity.  They ...
  • I think that the pricing for the A7IV reflects the reality that component cost, transportation cost, labor cost have all risen markedly in the last few years.

    TSMC and other foundries are...

  • I am not really sure how well the AF speed, accuracy and tracking compares between the A9 and the A7IV.  We'll have to wait for more information on this, but if they are relatively close in ...
  • As an FYI, ON1 came through for me on this issue.  While I don't like their new focus, I have always appreciated their customer service.  And again, they were great.
  • I had the Samyang 45mm 1.8 and the Samyang 35m 1.8. They were good, but I replaced them both with the 40mm 2.5. Haven't looked back. I just like the Sony lens better. Again, YMMV. I am just glad ...
  • I actually enjoy using the 40mm 2.5 lens.  It is in fact, on my camera most of the time.  I like the size, the handling, the image quality.  I use it with the 20mm 1.8 and the Samyang 75mm1.8.  I ...
  • I rebuilt the catalog and turned on face detection, but not indexing while the computer is idle.  I disabled facial recognition.  So far, the program has worked without crashing at startup.  Thank ...
  • Thanks for replying.  I have a Ryzen 3900x with 64gb of memory.  The crashes were new with the 2021 version (Ultimate 2020 did not have this problem).  Following suggestions from users, I turned ...
  • Topaz was a different story. The lifetime free upgrade offer was generous and it was going to run them to the ground. I don't think we would have gotten Adjust AI, DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI if they ...
  • Thanks for the comments, though the 2021 version had a similar bug.  It displayed a box that you had to click and then the program crashed.  This year's version just crashes.  Well, I turned it ...
  • Created discussion thread ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate 2022
    I just purchased this program (updated from 2021).  It has some nice improvements but has a similar problem that plagued Ultimate 2021.  If the face detection and if the indexer is utilizing the ...
  • The 2022 plugins are now available. In the U.S., you can add the plugins to the standalone version for $70 U.S. If you buy it as a standalone, it is on sale for $130 at the moment, with a normal ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts.  I actually have Photoraw 2022 (free upgrade for me, since I have the Pro Plus subscription).  I miss the plug in capability from this version, so I still have 2021.5 in ...
  • I have not upgraded my version of Nik since the pre google days (I actually paid for it before google made it available for free).  The plugins still work.  All I am saying is that instead of ...
  • I think that this is an opportunity to try the upgraded version of Nik.  The Photoraw 2021.5 (which works as a Photoshop plugin) will have to do.  I won't be using Photoraw 2022 that much, since I ...
  • The 2022 version of the plugins are not out yet, at least that's what the U.S. site says. Here, you need to pay $80 for the standalone and an additional $70 for the plugins. I am an ON1 Plus Pro ...
