Affinity claimed that as well, and while under the hood it's as good as Photoshop, and in some respects even better, the UI is a nightmare in a professional context (i tried to work with Affinity Photo for over a year, and had to give up). Affinity Designer is even worse as user experience, but i digress...

Let's hope that this one fares better.

Svetoslav Popov: What we know is that Canon clearly makes nicer product designs than Nikon (and i say this as a Nikon user :). Looks like a modern camera should look in the 21st century, well done!

@David - I don't find it looks "cheap". What i find is that the Z9 looks "old", and that's not the way to lead a product line into the future. :)

But seriously, in the end, the Nikon will not be as nice to handle because the hard edges will hurt or at least be uncomfortable. (Yes ergonomics includes the broader handling of the unit as well, not only in shooting position.)

I wish i could've read this test 20 years ago, when i scanned my whole collection of negatives, haha... I think i used VueScan then, but i can't remember anymore, because i tested different applications for the migration.

Nikon is perhaps trying to dry out the grey market with this move...

This shows that even Sony is not invulnerable to market fluctuations.

Guy R: Really enjoying Lightroom 6, thanks Adobe.
Also quite enjoying not paying you rent.

@Sohus - The license is perpetual and can't be revoked from an end customer. At least not were i live.

shigzeo: When it eventually comes, Adobe's fall will be wondrous to behold.

@Vince - Competition needs time to catch up. Give it another 5-10 years. Affinity Photo can almost replace Photoshop (talking about power users here), and Affinity Designer is already better than Illustrator.

Kiril Karaatanasov: Capture One plus Affinity Photo and one less bill to pay

@BaldCol - I have no problem paying more for non-Adobe software. What i have a problem with is to be locked in a perpetual arrangement that will milk me month after month.

Knowing my updating habits, i only update every 2-3 years anyway, so all's good.

@Kiril - Well said. I've been using C1pro for years, and it's way better than Lightroom. Bought the Affinity Suite in March, and admittedly it's a bit rough still, but on the way to completely replace my Photoshop CS6. I'm not giving Adobe one single cent anymore.

And mishandling / losing their customers' private data. Let's not forget.

LOL. Again? Why am i not surprised?

Apple disgusts me. Good thing i never bought anything from Apple, and even helped people get out of the Apple ecosystem when they had enough. So, in that sense, my conscience is clear. :)

PocketWizard still relevant? I thought they left the building

Anyway, it seems they learned nothing from their mistakes.

Oh, wow... What marketing genius stands behind this? To take an established, recognizable, original and well executed brand and turn it into something so generic. SMH.

Hmm, i'm still using my Photoshop CS6. And i will do it for years to come. At least until i have found a replacement - then i'll be completely Adobe-free.

razadaz: Every time there is a mention here about the Adobe Subscription model it is like pouring petrol on smouldering embers. Two things are clear, firstly there is and has been deep resentment about this from the very beginning. Secondly, Adobe really doesn’t care. As long as the revenue keeps rolling in they couldn’t care less.

Of course you are allowed to skip a version with C1. Why are you spreading misinformation?

Do you know something that we don't? Did their policy change? Please provide a link to your claim, it true at all.

Link | Posted on May 3, 2019 at 16:36 UTC

Not surprising - i think many of us expected this to happen. It's one of two primary reasons i don't support subscription models.

I bet they "test" this mainly on Apple users. ;-)
