Hope that in few years they add computer AI system which lets me make an alterations to those images - add my own dog to the picture. Or change the girl from brunet to blond. Then I'm in heaven.

No need to takes photos anymore - they are all already taken. Sorry.

OK Now I can just sell all my gear and use other peoples images - real reason is they were so much better that I can not force myself to take crap snapshot photos anymore. So sad.

cchen2: Not an ambassador, but I'm been using Capture One for Sony Express for years now instead of Lightroom and I think its pretty great. Especially since it is free for Sony users. I found that the RAWs the I imported took less work to get the results that I wanted, compared with Lightroom 5.

Me too, I like two things easy: software and women ;)

Timo Voivalin: Capture One is so much better, it is real visible difference. And images look better in a few seconds compared to LR Classic fiddling which takes minutes.

Goodbye Adobe....

I did not say anything about faster software, why would you think so?

Nice Adobe, add insult to injury! :D

Stability is essential and it was the only reason I chose LR after Aperture died. Is there any software I can trust to serve me year after year - no hoops to jump? Please?!

This could be reason to buy a new SLR-camera, just to make it a Super-Zoom and video camera - Canon it would be with the pixel focus system

Stefan Sobol: How do you know you are flying a real live drone? It is possible that they extensively mapped an area, which is not hard (the flying area is restricted).

You could just be maneuvering an eyepoint around a simulated environment that is photo mapped. A hint might be the statement "At best it looks like a Google Street View image"

How long You think the company would stay on float - after few days someone would blow their hoax.

And actually good virtual flight would be a service itself, to VR glass users for example.

I think this could become a success. I would like to fly drone at Grand Canyon. I'm never gone travel there myself.

Jefftan: Speechless, called me a fanboy
I can't find any fault
to me a perfect camera

As perfect as a APS-C camera can ever get (unless one day a new sensor type to replace Bayer)
lightweight with all features one can ever wanted

What more can one ask

Joystick to quickly select AF point. Touch screen is not a replacement for this.

I'm so happy I did not throw away my Sigma mount lenses. I have 50-150 mm, 17-70 mm and also the 10-20 mm. I was years ago thinking to buy the Sd14, and then waited the Sd1 but it was too pricey and Sony got my money for a alpha-550. I'm happy with E-mount but exhilarated that I can now get the Foveon. I just hope the Quatro sensor is up to it's task. Bundle with 10 mm lens will make my lens selection perfect.

P.S. It may be, that it will be Manual focus only...

Alfonso Bresciani: I hate Lightroom, its interface sucks, the panes are all nested and to many, it's a big mess even with two monitors. I even hate the sliders in LR.

Everything Adobe does is clunky and slow.

Goodbye Sony! No IBIS in 6300, no new lenses AND FE ones are too costly for hobbyist.

Welcome Fuji!

I'm happy with it.

I used Lightroom four years and never felt home. Aperture was not better. DXO was nice, but it (lens corrections) made some of my images look worse than straight from camera (RAW images without any corrections). And the Capture One felt like a nightmare.

I take photos for fun and do not like to excessive post process them - good photo does not need much processing. Photos is great for me. I did bought 200 Gb storage space from cloud. Now all my images are at the same program automagically (Phone images also) and I enjoy looking them through almost daily.

I admit I must be an idiot or an imbecile - but I do not care about it because my life is better and my photography life is more rewarding than ever before with those other over complicated software products.

I'm at home! :)

Excellent upgrade. With 29€ I got much faster new software and Viewpoint 2.

I'm happy. Now I have no need to buy a new computer, my 2009 middle MacBook pro works fast enough with DxO 10. For example Lightroom 5 was unusable, partly because the DxO does things automagically, so no need to move sliders around and wait 10 seconds to see what happens. I just open the image and usually it is great - only one or two minor adjustments needed.

Thank You DxO! :)

I could not find the price... nowadays I do not have any interest to test anything "free" before I know what it will cost if I like the product.

Oh, sorry it is still beta and nobody knows the price... I like the idea to get rid of RAW files from my computer but I will wait if this bird will fly.

Hope this will give us more zooms which start from 16 mm.
