Ivan Paganacci: When I no longer needed my $10/month PS/Lightroom subscription, I discovered there’s no online option to cancel. I had to phone a rep who asked why I wanted to leave, is there anything we can do better, etc. To quote Ditch Brodie — pack your bags, we’re going on a guilt trip.

Subscriptions should be able to be canceled without talking to anyone or having a confrontation. Tactics like this say a lot about a company.

@Tristan: on the page I mention there is a link that says "Cancel Plan". Since I didn't want to cancel my plan I didn't click on it. But I see no reason why it wouldn't work.

phazelag: What is the point of mirrorless with the same old heavy full frame lenses?

My FE lenses are about as big and heavy as my F mount.

Mirroless advatages? Easier manual focus, Live histogram, no mirror slap, video, facial recognition, wysiwyg.....

Becksvart: The translator wrote:

"However, we need to keep in mind that he is not really an executive in Nikon. He is retired from normal operation activity and given a position to run a forward vision lab."

which probably explains why he is being rather direct.

A forward vision lab? That also explains why we havn't seen tangible steps taken to achieve what he speaks about.

Less talk, more action please!

An obvious step towards a FF mirrorless camera is a FF PDAF sensor. Develop the technology and roll it in your current DSLR offerings. Between the 1 series and patents on multi pixel PDAF, you have all the pieces in place. Just do it!

melgross: They don’t have to implement proper color management. They have to implement color management, because there isn’t any. None.

Without a display profile, I can't imagine what app level color management can accomplish.

Sunshine7913: I wish to see AMD Ryzen Threadripper version.

You mean the Epyc version. The HP line is using Xeon processors, with multiple cpus'ss on a board.

Threadripper would be comparable to intels consumer Skylake-X line .

rwbaron: Compared to what was accomplished in 1951 for Fred Astaire's dance on the walls and ceiling in "Royal Wedding" this still shot is pretty simple.

http://www.bigfott.com/Astaire_Unwound.html

Absolutely! And compared to What Fred Astaire accomplished in his "lighter than air" dancing, this shot is stiff and unengaging.

I would be in deep water with my wife if I were one DAY late with my anniversary. Two months? She'd say forget it.

M Jesper: What if somebody else does this with YOUR photos though?

You fight in court, just like you would if you registered them and somebody else claimed to have taken the photos.

It has no TTL, so how is this a "flash for Canon and Nikon DSLRs"? Isn't this a flash for any camera (with a hotshoe)? Why not simply title this article "Amazon sells an AmazonBasics flash for just $28".

We are in the month of August. Posting a huge graph titled 2017 Camera Market, and quietly footnoting that this only represents sales in January and February is, at best, misleading.

Yes, I understand the data has just been released.

DJI has software in many of its drones that use geolocation to determine whether the drone is in a No Fly Zone. The company's privacy statement states:

"We may preserve and disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, warrant or request, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies."

It would be ironic if the Army pulled DJI because of DJI's need to comply with US law.

He "gets to the point" at the one minute mark.

Scottelly: Smart marketing. They'll sell the crap out of them along with the new iMac Pro. Those two products go hand-in-hand, and would appeal to a lot of independent movie makers, like college students with fresh student loans.

Interesting. Thanks.

faterikcartman: Does this mean you need a Mac to make use of it with what's included?
"The RED RAVEN Camera Kit also includes Final Cut Pro X which features native support for REDCODE RAW video, built-in REDCODE RAW image controls, and the most complete ProRes support of any video editing software. Together with the free RED Apple Workflow software, Final Cut Pro allows professional video editors to work quickly and easily with RED RAVEN footage on MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac Pro systems."

It was clear to me that by "this" you meant "the following statement". But I can see how many could interpret "this" to mean "Red available exclusively through Apple", then proceeding to back up what would amount to a rhetorical question with the quote you provided.

If the D5 ships after the anniversary, is it still an anniversary edition?

sunilkumar: So what is stopping Canon to ship the units made from expected demand.

If they're not shipping any, I guess they didn't expect anyone to buy it.
