M Chambers: It's good to know that Instagram cares about their legal language so children will understand what they're agreeing to before sexting nude photos of themselves to the public.

As others here have already said, contracts cannot be signed by minors! Their parents should be required to read the terms of service.

The re-write was commissioned by the UK Children's Commissioner and applies to the UK. As BadScience points out below, in the UK minors can enter into a contract but, in this case, only Instagram is bound by the contract.
Of course Instagram are not in any way party to this re-write.

cosinaphile: an excessive amount of pixellation in the rear lcd if fear for a 13000 dollar usd body

an exciting tiny beast , but .....

edit.... as was said elsewhere , these dark uninspired images are a poor offering to judge a first impression .... please team up with a real photographer for these articles
even for a few hours ..... honestly you diminish the glow of this unique new hassy with these dingy poorly composed shots

cheers otherwise and thanks for the well written copy

Download the RAW files, open in Lightroom 6.8 and report back after you have processed to your taste - there is an great deal of information in those deep shadows.

Seems this device is designed in Germany and manufactured in China. See

Jay Siegel: If one already subscribes to the photographer's option of CC LR and PS for $9.99 will they "have access" to Portfolio?

What does "included access" to CC LR and CC PS mean?

Yes, Portfolio is a straight replacement for the Behance web site you could already have set up. I to have the CC & LR subscription and got in early with the initial trial of Portfolio.
My initial attempt with portfolio is at www.davidrosser.uk as you see you can attach a personal address to an Adobe Potyfolio site.

anselsmyhero: So at 7 mm the zoom lens has 114° angle of coverage, And the 8 mm has 180° angle of coverage. Can anybody explain to me why the angles of coverage and the focal lengths are not proportional?

The 8mm fisheye angle of view is 180 deg across the diagonal (corner to corner) The zoom angle of view is measured across the width.

Was is correct, Lightroom is singular, were is used with plurals. For instance
The cat was sitting.

HowaboutRAW: So no Samsung NX1, or Panasonic LX100, or Canon G7X--all kind of interesting cameras--and IR has already posted some raws from the Canon.

Also Leica uses DNG, so unless the newest Leicas only use a very very new version of DNG, older versions of ACR should work with say the S2(type 700), so this Leica V-Lus seems odd.

Greybalanced is correct. In the past Nikon, for instance, would not release proprietry information to Adobe. The Sillypix (sorry Silkypix - I will keep making that mistake...) situation is that they are Japanese and seem to be willing to work with Japanese camera manufacturers to make bespoke manufacturer specific versions of their software. The Fuji version of Silkypix will only open Fuji files, the Nikon version (NX-D) only work with Nikon files.

Be warned the prices quoted in the press release do not include the 25% VAT you will be charged.

Since when did 11000 Euro equal £11400. Last time I looked there were 1.2637 Euro to the pound. On that basis the UK price should be £8700.

digitall: A Sea of Steps, Frederick Henry Evans: one of my favourite photographs. Wish Australia was closer to England!

They charge a few pounds for a photography licence that, amongst other things, allows you to use a tripod and place its feet in the same spot as Evens used; like hundreds if not thousands have since he took the original. ;-)

qianp2k: Will be free or you need to pay for a prod version when it's officially released?

What you are reading is clearly stated to be the original press release for the beta version so no contradiction.

Interesting here in the UK WEX have V3 in stock - does not appear to be a shortage. It is the AW1 that is awaiting deliveries.

On article Adobe CC Announcements: What you need to know (181 comments in total)

Holw do these iPad applications differ from Photoshop Touch that I have on my Nexus 7? For instance changes I make on the Nexus are synced with my CC cloud storage and hence with my desktop. BTW the Lightroom Queen says existing photography plan users will retain their existing 20 gig CC storage and not be downgraded to 2gig.

In reply to:

skeen: DPR were not able to do a test/comparison with the 23mm prime - I have the T, and the 23mm ... I've uploaded an OOC JPG and a DNG here: https://mega.co.nz/#F!Fh4giBAC!FEXKN1zGyA5RhYz2TcxjoQ

I don't know whether Leica said they did no corrections or not, but I think that for any manufacturer (not just Leica), the likelihood of them lying about this when it will be naturally discovered otherwise seems rather unlikely.

People are saying, "I just don't understand how they thought they could get away with this", well...the most reasonable explanation then, surely, is that there's just been some kind of miscommunication. That is surely the only thing that makes sense at this point...?

Downloaded the DNG and compared it in RawDigger (which applies no correction and ignores any correction instructions in metadata) and Lightroom. Very definite difference, Lightroom version is cropped significantly compared with RawDigger output indicating noticable distortion correction.

peevee1: So, Nikon and Panasonic have the same software now... SilkyPix.

I keep calling it Silly Pix for some reason.

Link | Posted on Feb 25, 2014 at 16:44 UTC

Anyone any idea which lens/camera combinations are covered by lens distortion tool? D700/16-35 f/4 is but 12-24mm f/4 on D1H isn't which is hardly surprising I suppose but the lens is supported on the D2Hs.

In reply to:

Antony John: Downloaded earlier this morning. Not quite as clumsy as CNX-2 and, as some have already pointed out, missing 'U Point' and some other bits and bobs that were in CNX-2 but the basics are still there.
Have also compared the straight 'from NEF' rendition vs Lightroom 4 and NX-D shows greater image acuity and superior colour rendition - as one should expect being 'OEM' software.
So, yes, there are negatives but Nikon are asking for input (a first?) and I think people should take up this offer and let's see what the final version will be like in September (the time the beta software expires).
I've been using Lightroom for a year now but re-looking at Nikon's offering I can see what I've been missing having (almost totally) discarded CNX-2 during this period.
Now if Nikon will offer a route to using Nik Software via the 'open with' (which currently doesn't work on NX-D - one is routed to the preferences screen) then I doubt that too many will be dismayed.

I have set it up so that I can do straight into Photoshop CC and assume you can do the same with Nik plug in .exe. You have to set this up in preferences. (Preferences is Windows only for some reason)
BTW Nikon have already issued second version of beta - 2 in one day. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
