BaldCol: Really? I thought everyone was going to leave them in droves and start using alternatives.

Basically the business model worked. They are making more money for thier shareholders which is what they exist for. Good for them.

While Corel has had its issues, the CorelDraw suite is certainly an alternative.

retr01976: Honestly I was against the subscription model in the beginning, but I have come to terms with it and now everyone is basically doing the same thing and in some respects it makes perfect sense. $10 a month for things like Adobe, Netflix, and Apple Music - Not a bad deal to be honest. I mean I probably blow more money on less important things (like those $15 old fashioned's I drank in palm beach recently).

And yet you how other choices from free too expensive for processing your photos. Why is CC required? Is someone holding a gun to your head?

EDWARD ARTISTE: Say goodbye to standalone lightroom.

Whats to stop them from dropping an upgrade just before the new 6D and Nikons new bodies are available.

Adobe stinks. They stink of greed and lackluster updates.

CS6+LR 5.7 FTW, I'm going to rock out until it cant run anymore. Heck 'i can still export proper from bridge. imagine that? :P

-Edo

People have said that for years, and yet, it still isn't true. Ten years from now when the LightRoom replacement comes out subscription only, they will say that they were right all along.

Sirandar: Lightroom is a mature product .... We know it Adobe knows it. They just couldn't charge money to buy the same product every year.... Nobody would bite.

They had a choice ..... Wait a few years and invest in research to really revamp Lightroom to make it a new product OR adopt a subscription model for a mature finished product.

If they used these profits for readl RandD and development, it might be a win win.

The shareholders are probably just cashing out and not doing this

I don't think you understand how stocks work.

Also, Light room is still sold without a subscription.

ZeBebito: My iPhone 7 is already waterproof so it's expected any new model will also be wr. The wireless charging, that's cool.

Unlikely, but it is very water resistant.

In reply to:

Dante Birchen: Canon really needs to bring out a 7DMkIII with the new sensor

But a newer sensor could move the 7D line back to being the best general purpose APS-C camera as the original mode was in its time. It is what I am waiting for as a single DSLR hobbyist.

In reply to:

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.

U think Canon's biggest lack in APS-C is an inexpensive 35mm f/1.8 like Nikon's. There are rumors of a 30mm f/1.8 but I'm afraid it won't be nifty fifty pricing which leaves Canon behind in APS-C budge primes.

On article iOS 11 will cut photo, video size in half (81 comments in total)

HEIF's support for multiple exposure and focus and burst stacks and non-destructive edit operations would seem to be ideal for phone image storage. And make them interchangeable along OS's and brand with your edits working.

Ed Chen: You can make your own bundle for less and get refurbished of both lenses on canon's website for $290.

Canon refurbished is a very good deal with a one year warranty.

Hellstrom: The storage never gets any bigger on these things. Should be up to 1TB by now.

Correction - the 512GB became available with this generation.

In reply to:

Negative287: If this has the same light sensor as the 9.7 pro, then it is the best option for photography! I was ticked that they only aged that sensor after they had already released the 12.9" model that I had already purchased.

I don't believe he means the camera, but the True Tone light sensor that adjusts color on the display to match ambient lighting white balance.

Actually they raised the base storage to 64GB and they increased the top storage to 512GB a generation of two ago.

xiao_xiang: Samsung really need to innovate. With those thin bezels and colors it looks just like the last couple of generations. Wait.... not Samsung?

There is clearly a shortage of photography related news if this qualifies.

Obviously you have no idea what is related to photography.

Light Pilgrim: I have the original 9,7" iPad Pro, it is nice, but not as nice as using a pen and paper. Question. Are there any changes to the Apple Pencil? Is it still the same or there is an upgraded version of it?
Aside from a bigger and brighter screen, is there anything game changing?

Supposedly the 120Hz refresh reduces lag when using the Pencil.

Lightgreen: Kaby Lake and 2nd gen polaris upgrades *yawn*, well better then nothing I guess on the Macbook Pro Retina side of the house. Least they kept the price the same for more. So much for Coffee Lake and Vega making their way into this rev. No surprise to me personally. Oh, they bumped the entry GPU sku to the 555 (from the 450, thus the 555 is the newer presumably higher clocked 455) and made the 560 standard instead of CTO only on the higher end base, for the same cost. Probably the biggest news there truth told.

So coffee lake and Vega are shipping?

In reply to:

rfsIII: Could someone elaborate on "a benefit at the center, possibly stemming from better acceptance of light from the edge of the lens."
What is the benefit?
And aren't the light rays at the edge of the lens projected onto the edges of the sensor?

Light rays from the entire surface of the lens are projected to every point on the sensor - otherwise what would happen when you closed down the aperture?

NetMage: Somehow this article and Prynt's web site forgot to mention the photo size.

Prynt says 3" x 1.88", doesn't seem worth it to me.

james laubscher: Brilliant idea but can someone tell me why producers of new gadgets always focus on the iPhone market first when we all know that Samsung outsells Apple by more than 2 to 1?

Because iPhone owners spend more money on accessories.

In reply to:

OlyPent: Whatever happened to Vivitar? Formerly, made fairly well-regarded after-market lenses, and THE flash, the 283/285 that many, many photogs used. Then they became the hawker of Chinese toys to put company logos on.

The wikipedia article says they were much more than a reseller.
