Surprised that Leica would enter the 40MP zone.

Lightroom still can't WB a grey card correctly with Auto WB (the picker works, though). Room for improvement beyond the logo :-)

It is one thing for hardware to work with small files, it is another to work with large files from, say, an a7R4. If I want to take a snapshot of my kids having pizza, my Google Pixel 4 will do. If I want a "negative" that captures as many shades of color and detail as possible for me to work on later, I take my camera. Don't think that cameras featuring mobile style editing will have a large customer audience.

@Boomanbb: What choice, what options? LR was my best option back then, and it is with proper camera and lens profiles today. I would be willing to pay for new and improved profiles. I am not willing to support updates and improvements I don't need with a monthly fee that goes on for ever. Let's say someone is using LR for 30 years. That is 3.600 - for what? LR was by and large at the end of the development in 2016. It was good enough so people would no more buy every new version that came out (because of the lack of meaningful improvements). That's when companies go subscription.

@Boomanbb So an iPad app is the innovation. Okay, if that is worth 600 in 5 years, great. I don't need that connectivity and I am not editing my images on a tablet while on the road. My 600 would have bought me nothing worth the money.

Boomanbb: What did 5 years of subscription get you in terms of innvoation in LR? They fixed the Auto Exposure function (which they should hav long before). If 5 years of subscription for LR is €600 - what makes it worth it?

munn1: Same answer as always: $10 for nothing is $10 for nothing. Or $120 a year. Camera Raw is the same, Camera Profiles for many models sub-optimal. If they would focus on the best possible camera and lens profiles (which they could even sell to me for my 6.14 version). But they don't. They want a steady revenue stream from customers who don't care about $10 because it is a business expense.

Jones Indiana: Wow! - Inspiring breaking news!

It shareholders will be pleased to hear it could all be done for less than a dollar!

No way. It starts with a work shop and then a project team is created. The team will invite an agency to do customer research and focus groups. Then a couple of competing agencies will be invited to present draft version. Another work shop with focus group attendees. Best version is selected in workshop and a presentation is prepared for senior management. Senior management listens, likes the idea and choses a different design that they like more. Then attorneys start to review for copyright issues and protection. Turns out legal requires a slightly different design.

Subscription money well spent :-)

Rather than sending out payed promotors, Adobe should fix their profiles for the a6400 and EOS-R (among other things). Charging a fee every month but not fixing things makes even a one Cent fee permonth one cent too much.

ArthurS: And once again all the Adobe haters are out in force. Very little in the way of actual constructive comments, as usual. It's OK to not like Adobe's stuff, -but why go on and on and on about it? Why not just go on using whatever software you do use and tell us why you use it? But just bashing Adobe because you get some kind of pleasure out of bashing Adobe doesn't really serve any purpose other than to tell us that you have too much time on your hands.

I have €10.000, if not more in equipment because I don't pay €10 a month for something that offers me not much, if anything, beyond and above what I have with LR6.14. Camera Raw get's you the same output in today's LR as it does in LR 6.14.

mais51: Sorry, can't afford the entry ticket price - bought my LR 6 - it will be my last Adobe product - no rentalware from me.

It is not about the extra money (each and ever month). It is that the money doesn't buy me anything. An ARW converted in LR 6.14 and the latest version of Camera Raw looks exactly the same. I have to convert to DNG - but that is a small price to pay compared to monthly payments for nothing. Instead of marketing programs, bing back a standalone purchase version. LR 6.14 does justice to his D850 - and the reason he can afford one is that he is spending his money wisely.

It is a shame you have no idea about todays Germany. You should read, learn, get yourself educated about how Hitler came to power (his party was elected to the Reichstag, he didn't do a coup - he was appointed Reichskanzler. And learn about the post war history and development. You need to read a lot. But now it is back to photography, isn't it?

Yes, wonderful world. We should all strive to live in a Polizeistaat so that we feel safe and secure! At least from those nasty foreigners. Best thing is to just herd them all onto a tour bus, shuffle them around, make them leave all their money and then send them immediately back to those "sh*t wholes" they are comming from (just citing teh Blimp). Happy to see that you are a fan of Quantanamo.

Love your arguments. So sharp. Now, let's turn to how effective the new measure is. Do you really think that a bad guy will disclose the social media account on which he trades bad stuff? Remember the green Imigration Cards that were handed out to foreigners who wished to be granted entry? Questions like: Are you planning to commit a sever crime during your stay? Of course, that question was always honostly answered by people who planned to enter to do just that. Asking for Social MEdia Accounts is a violation of privacy that does not increase security. But: If teh INS finds out that you cheated on that question - off you go to Quantanamo (It rhymes :-) )

Arun H: So you would be more comfortabel traveling if all countries start to require your social media accounts. Or just stay home then? Don't worry. For as long as the Blimp is President, I won't be checking in.

JACS: Fingerprints are no problem. They don't tell you an opinion. Bank Statements are okay, too. The Elephant in the room is Freedom of Speach and Civil liberties. But traveling to Turkey or China, or Saudi Arabia, you are probably just fine with them having access to your social media accounts. Ah, that is because you don't post that the Saudi Prince is a murderer.

They are not asking for the passwords? Ever heard about Governemnt backdoors?
Thank you much for your comment "Green is just another shade of red". It shows (a) that you should really stick to Black & White photgraphy and (b) underlines what I said before: Everyone who's not a conservative is a socialist/liberal/communist in your eyes.

I have lived in the USA, two of my daughters were born there, I love the country, I love Minnesota, I love California and I even love New York City. But the US is changing. The attitude is changing. America First. I hate to disappoint you, but I am not really a socialist. Though I do believe that free wheeling capitalism has reached it is end of life. My votes go to the Green Party - which for you is probably just another shade of socialist red. But I forgot: According to the Blimp, there is no such thing as climate change.

And now back to the original question: Should we be worried about Governments asking for access to our private social media accounts? Without resonable cause? A Governemnt assuming that the person in front of them is bad person. Good persons have nothing to hide, right?

You have no clue what socialism is, what the Social Democratic Party stands for, what the difference is to a communist party - because everyone that is not your kind of conservative is a socialist. Don't worry, that has been a long standing thing in the US. The Blimp calls Democrats socialists and they are far from it (with the exception of Sanders, may be). The word "Liberal" is also often used to disparage people who are not conservative. Being called a Liberal is something good in Europe. It was and I think still is used negatively in the US and used as a synonyme for Socialist.
