Stanchung: What Adobe should have done is asked $5 for the RAW update. There's many, and nobody wants pay for RAW versions they don't own a camera to.

This price gouging subscription model is too much.

Sticking to pre CC.

As is intended[break sub model], since the updates are minimal.

The DNG conversion option is just another time wasting step.

CallumG: What a surprise! Despite all this great business, the only updates they can put out are RAW file support, not to mention that Lightroom is still slow. I still have to use other software for HDR and focus stacking. £100/year is not worth it. The only reason I'm still subscribed is that other alternatives arn't as sophisticated nor advanced. They should do what Microsoft does with OS' and support single purchases for a number of years.

Games provide new content for a small one time fee and they're happy to fix issues with updates.
How does that compare with Adobe?

AbrasiveReducer: I doubt you could take bad photos in a setting like this but these look great.

Not being close is compounded by an UWA.

ms18: Biggest difference is both mounts are different. I recommend selecting one according to the lens choices you want. I just read these comparison for fun. In reality its the available lens that matters. I wish we compare lens more than bodies.

@deliverator, seems I have missed that one, my apologies. Not a fan of variable aperture lenses due to me prefering manual exposure for flashes.

An f2.8 would be timely with the D500, better yet an f2 to 'keep up' with the 3rd party offerings!

Nikon already has a decent 16-85 f3.5-5.6

It needs to update its 17-55 f2.8 though. Longer & wider. 16-65 2.8 perhaps.

matthew saville: RE: the FPS and buffer:

Also, note that while Canon's mRAW format is borderline useless, since it slashes over half the resolution and yet averages only a 10-20% filesize savings, Nikon's RAW options offer the exact opposite: A 50-60% reduction in file size, while staying at full-resolution, by dropping down from 14-bit to 12-bit and turning on lossy compression.

While I'm sure a serious landscape photographer won't be shooting in 12-bit compressed NEF, ...a sports shooter can blast away without fear of any discernible difference in their shots. That's one reason why I'll always love Nikon for sports. Those raw compression options let me fit almost 1,000 24 MP NEF's on a 16 GB card!

Strange, to halve the resolution would in theory halve the file size.

GabrielZ: These new iPads are what I was most interested in seeing at WWDC this year. After a long wait I'm finally getting one. Something that wasn't 100% clear to me though is if all the upgraded features of this new 10.5" model are going to be in the 12.9" version too? Which is actually the one I'm most interested in.

Updated mine. no time to play with it yet.

thx1138: Gosh good to see the smaller bezels even if it took them far too long to deliver them. I'm interested in the 10.5" and stylus, maybe around Xmas I'll replace my old iPad Air.

I have bezel issues when i put the IPP on my potbelly. ^^

The folds of my clothes which the ipp 'sink into' seem to screw with it as well.

Nothing worth complaining about but does happen.

dash2k8: I love my iPads but have long given up trying to draw on this surface. I have over 30 years drawing experience and thus am married to the texture of real paper. A glossy surface just doesn't do it for me. I will, however, continue to upgrade my iPads at every-other generation and use them for recreational purposes. Can't beat the eye candy.

The matte screen protector alters the quality of the view however. :(

The IPP really doesn't replace paper but it does save paper. Don't get black palms anymore.

Undo & Copy paste are pretty much the reason to go digital. meh

autoxnyc: I use Macs for post processing but I don't understand why Apple still have not made changes so people can run Photoshop on the iPad pros. What's the point of having the stylus if you are limited to iOS apps. I just pre-ordered the new Surface Pro for editing on the go with full version of LR and PS.

@autoxnyc, understandably, I'm the same. I don't use the ipp for photoshop. Just sketching, painting.

There's not enough desktop space for photoshop on the IPP IMO. Hate scaling rescaling.

I'm waiting for a XL IPP. A3 + sized.

The 12.9 is only 2 years old. It will definitely load ios11

scoobysnapstories: this is why i left apple, every time an upgrade comes its basically an old tech, previous gadgets from apple. waste.

When people cant afford and apple device, they buy others. Same story everywhere elese.
That is slowly changing with the emergence of high quality products from it's competitors.
I have a feeling apple is only competing with itself. All it's comparisons it always with it's predecessors.

Petrogel: The only place those iPads look and work great is at Apple's keynote

I love my IPP, don't know what you're hating about except maybe the frustrating enclosed ecosystem.
Once i got 50gb Icloud that was mostly cured.

miggy, procreate allow layer editing. its mostly a paint app but if you really need photoshop , use astropad and mirrow onto the ipp with a computer.

It may look nicer but in practice the bezel helps mitigate against accidental touching on the sides.

A case of win some lose some

Not a fan of EVF's so I will never care for a mirrorless.
If they make one they have to make one the size of an FX camera.
Those little things are ridiculous with a 70-200 equivalent.

It's still digital with top notch sensor.

Some people have a penchant for hyperbole with regards to dinosaurs.
