Hellstrom: I remember the days (late 1990s) when hard drives doubled in capacity every year or two, each subsequent model costing less, with faster data throughput, with no thermal constraints. 14TB over 12TB is just 16% increase in storage and I bet we have to wait ages to see it widely available for a reasonable price.

'On the other hand, SSDs are doubling in size and speed every year or two!'

And price.

casperghst42: One can only hope that there will be a replacement product, which is almost as good and easy to use as LR, in the near future.

Adobe has always been full of ..., nothing has changed.

Why not hope for a replacement that is better and easier to use?

'Lightroom Classic CC isn't going anywhere'

Comparing it with Lightroom 2015, it certainly hasn't gone very far in 2 1/2 years.

In reply to:

BBQue: I feel sorry for those who built huge libraries in LR.

How do you know if your planned migration route will still exist when the time comes to change?

'Let’s unpack what "Lightroom" means going forward.'

I didn't think there was any other way to go. How do I go backwards to before subscription based apps were invented?

hertz: Each cartridge gives 36 exposures and costs $5.

When you've finished a cartridge you send it off for 'processing'. In return you are sent a PIN which you use to unlock the photos in the camera.

heavymeister: Well, the USA does not invest in the education of its people. So you have people who can not find North Korea or Irak on a blank map of the world. And you have police officers who don't have the brains to recognize a tripod or follow the rules they are given.

Soon, no one will be able to find North Korea on the map....

If I paid $3300 for one of these, I'd hope to get one without an out of focus LCD! Check the product shot here https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/6044780370/back_with_LCD.jpeg

Strange.
