Reilly Diefenbach: Jesus Christ what a bunch of whiners. You don't like the subscription, don't subscribe. Simple.

This is basically how this conversation went:

Reilly: If you don't like it, don't buy it.
Dennis: Sounds like something a shareholder would say.
Me: How does that pertain to what he said?
Dennis: I'm entitled to my opinion.

Huh?

@Dennis - "It's rare that "record profits" is good for consumers. Maybe you're a shareholder ?"

LOL....geez, the man gives age-old advice of "if you don't like it, don't buy" and you post three paragraphs and eventually come to this conclusion? Please. I swear the photography online community consists the most whiny and entitled assholes on the internet.

fishy wishy: Think of how much those drones go for and how widespread they're selling... and they only put up $30k to report vulnerability in this billion dollar industry. It's an insult to worldwide intelligence. These are not children who save up cereal tokens to pay for DJI drones you know.

More likely somebody who spots a vulnerability will go for blackmailing DJI for $20m or so instead.

Yeah, because blackmailing DJI would go well... :S

NickyB66: High class, more money....companies 'celebrating' anniversaries, more like 'celebrating' ways to get more money out of people.

They are for-profit businesses, it's the only reason they exist.... /facepalm

Fujica: A nice camera, but at least half year too late.
But if you like mirrors this is it.

You really think 6 months is the make-or-break timeline for this product? Hah!

Daft Punk: This is beast of a camera.

The IQ will no doubt be exceptional. DR from a BSI sensor will make Canon 5DSR owners weep.

The only thing Canon has is Dual Pixel AF and great lenses.

These are very strong assets, but if it is IQ you crave this Nikon is clearly top dog.

Me? Mirrorless is too big a draw for me now. I love my little Olympus EM5 II rig and its persuaded me to go toward Sony for FF IQ. So I am going Sony next.

A DSLR feels like old tech to me now. I don't want to give up a good EVF.

Probably the nicest way anybody has inevitably brought mirrorless into a DSLR discussion.

pfzt: man, the amount of bitter HDR-dog-in-park-flower-macro photographers in this comment section is much too high ;)

Where are your portraits, so that we can see if you can do better?

Oh, great comeback Snapper..... :/

Charles2: Here is an article by a warehouse employee. He describes their successful drive to form a trade union - but now B&H says they will close the unionized warehouse rather than negotiate a contract:

Honestly, if I owned a company, I wouldn't want my employees to form a union either.

MariusM: I'm not promoting B&H or Adorama, but before jumping ship to Adorama (which many here are saying they are going to do), they do not appear to be squeaky clean, either.

Amazon also treats their warehouse employees pretty hard.

Anywhere you go is going to have issues. It's the American way. Pick your poison.

Well then my friend, I've invented the perfect game for you. It's called the...Jump.....To Conclusions Mat! You see, you have this mat, with different conclusions written on it that you could jump to.

Jacques Cornell: Peak Designs gets a whole lot of free press these days. Makes me wonder if it's really free.

How about a review of OpTechUSA products? For decades, they've been making a complete system of modular components that can be configured for almost any purpose, letting you easily swap a camera from, say, a wrist strap to a shoulder strap to a dual sling harness. The stuff is versatile, reliable and affordable.

A lot of the expensive "new" strap products from boutique makers are essentially just repackaging OpTech's concepts at a higher price.

Peak Design articles get clicks. Clicks pay the bills. Don't be so cynical.

"Bezel-less"....ummm, I see a bezel. Might be very thin, but it's still there.

On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (479 comments in total)
In reply to:

photog4u: By releasing this impressive marketing short announcing the D850 development, Nikon has committed yet another camera tech faux pas. They should have given their mirrorless development a similar marketing video. That the D850 got Hercules Rising and the mirrorless announcement got a half-ass press release, tells me that they still don't get it ... probably an early indication that the Nikon mirrorless system is going to be disappointing compared to the might Sony Alpha series.

@photog4u - You're everything that's wrong with the online photography community. Your passion lies in guessing, comparison, and brand loyalty, not taking photographs. You should reassess why you're even on a photography site.

@sapple - Nikon released an official statement that they were working on a mirrorless system: https://www.dpreview.com/news/9148147105/official-statement-nikon-currently-developing-new-mirrorless-cameras

Thoff: I went to the local welding supply and they had a setup to highlight the eclipse and sold 3x5 sheets of glass for welding helmets that are safe to view the eclipse through.
They were a 1.85 each and I got a few. When I got home I looked at the full sun through them and had not issues. Even played with it on my camera and took pics of the sun with no issues.
Tom

Nah, I think I'll pay the $150 instead.

Sylvain G: I appreciate Adobe wanting to address this issue but I'd suggest they'd widen their reality check : the rendering simply lags behind competition like phase. Camera makers color profiles are completely off too. It just looks old...
I'll welcome any performance improvement but if lightroom 7 main and only focus is perfs, then I suppose that will be it for me.

I really didn't ask for or need a summary. It's extremely simple. If you don't like LR, then move along. You're trying to use excuses like "locked in by the large catalog" or saying "if it's not fixed in the future", but if you're not happy, then go with another product now. Guess what, if they don't do what you want in the future, your catalog is still going to be large. If you're going to move away from LR at a future point, then you might as well start now.

If LR isn't working for you now, then why don't you change now? Sounds like you're complaining because you like to complain. There's nobody stopping you but yourself.

Svetoslav Popov: Way too late. I already switched to Capture One Pro v10.

And typical Adobe: instead of talking about the stinky pile in the room (the forced subscription model) their modus operandi is to distract with lesser issues (though not much less stinky, granted).

Only need a Photoshop CS6 replacement, then i'm completely out, good riddance, bye bye stinky pie... (SCNR)

I swear the #1 reason people buy Capture One is so that they can tell everyone on the internet that they use it.

jyw5: I don't understand why ppl got bent out of shape over yhis article. I'm not a pro and I found the info interesting. While most readers here won't be able to use the setup described, it was still interesting and much can be learned and it sparks creativity and makes you think about the possibilities....perhaps even new possibilities.

I didn't know DPR photographers were so whiney.

"I didn't know DPR photographers were so whiney."

You must be new here, then. Welcome!

bwana4swahili: Really hard to beat "laptops" like the Lenovo YOGA 900 and 910! Miles ahead of the Surface.

I could not disagree more, especially with the "miles" part. The newest Surface Pros definitely don't win in all categories but they're highly portable, extremely usable and performance is fantastic for anything but gaming (which they aren't made for anyway).
