Rensol: Did you see a tendency of manufacturers to go into higher/more expensive markets?
Sub 1000 unit goes to ProPhoto filed already.
However (at least original godox ad600 (as well as other Godox flashes are built like garbage. I have over 10 units and 6 of them are dead. Once you took them apart you can see that quality of PCB assembly is on par with some really cheap stuff! Some of them have hanging interconnects inside to bypass defective copper lines, etc... Spilled solder pieces, broken ferrite transformers, you name it.
Read reviews. Majority of broken units have E1 error (no high voltage detected).
Before increasing price they should think about improving assembly quality.
Again, I am talking about PCB assembly, not about external appearance!

I wonder. If they are giving a good impression on the outside, they are normally good on the inside. In electronics you cannot easily tell apparat bad and good quality.

FF Pro: I wonder if there is full TTL support with Sony cameras?

I suppose so. Why shouldn't they? AF is quite performant. But also here in studio situations, sometimes and especially with manual lenses (!) they use manual focus.

For my speedlites I have TTL. I also have ONE Godox AD600 with TTL and 2 without. When you are in a fast shooting move, you rarely travel with such a light. And as I said: I HAVE ONE TTL.

Oh and BTW: Pros shoot also manual, but effectively, sometimes I use time or aperture priority. But my STANDARD shooting mode is manual.

Pros don’t need TTL. I have 3 of them, only one is TTL, and that only for being fast in case needed. I prefer the manual lightning for strobes like that.

yahoo2u: Well, it's not photography anymore. Just a mish mash of high tech software and people with no vision, useless behind the camera.

This is about processing the image. It has been done before, but it simply gets easier!

bwphotog: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell the only substantive change/upgrade/improvement Adobe has made to either LR or PS since going to subscription is to update the latest cameras on RAW. When they were selling copies of the software you could depend that every few years there would be a new tool, an improvement to an old tool, or workflow.

I have been using LR since v.1 but am now giving serious consideration to moving over to On1 Software. It has most of the features found in LR, PS, and DxO (another good product), with an affordable price tag for both purchase and upgrades. Check it out.

You are wrong...

Wiggle Foot: "Adobe has two separate teams working to build out Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC," but they couldn't afford to have two separate teams working on the perpetual license version of LR and LR CC?

Perpetual Lr 6 and subscription Lr CC 2015 was just a switch at some features of Lr. It was the same binary. So dropping the perpetual midel was a matter of choice for Adobe. And commenters forget that LR CC is bundled with Photoshop CC. Looking at it like this, it is a bargain.

Lr Classic and (the new) Lr CC are different binaries. And currently Lr CC does not have the same features than Lr Classic CC.

mxx: Another reason not to go mirrorless. All those prone to explode batteries you have to drag along everywhere...

Mirrorless cameras work on steam?

If i remember right, Li-ion batteries need special marking outside of the box. I suppose that most amateurs do not mark their luggage...

It seams urgent to find a good replacement for this technology...

Big6D: Let's see the hands poeple, who actually put their camera in the checked luggage.

It depends with how much gear you travel.

leerob: I guess there are no updates for standalone version of LR. Bummer.

There's always an update for the latest standalone Lr version, as they share the same engine.

j pon: I'll boycott Chinese products, even if this less expensive lens is as good as the original it still has quality issues. I have yet got stainless steel from China that didn't rust. I'm sure the lens coating will get the fungus as my Chinese made telescope did.

@Mike: there is no freedom of speech anymore! :-)

You can buy 4 of those against 1 Canon. The problem will be the optical quality. Chinese are very good at copying. But this is nt a 1:1 copy.

HowaboutRAW: Why are these raws so small. Imaging Resource posted 80D raws a few days ago, and they're on the order of 32MB to 46MB per file?

Lossless compression is right. The phenomena of smaller files happends with less noise...

There are no compression options for raw files...

Mikael Risedal: expose properly, what is that? something Canon has invented?
does not answer my question, why a new sensor in Canon, there are no need for better DR due the Canon boys

Again: because they can do it now!

In reply to:

Mikael Risedal: well David, I have been written about the poorer DR in Canon since 2008 and I wonder, WHY are Canon now changing their sensor read out and to less noise ?During all the years I have received the answer- Canon's DR is good enough, expose properly from the fan boys, and to me it make no sense to invest money in something Canon fan boys already said is good enough ( or is it as long Canon has no answer to Sony)

Well, the Canon sensor was good, now it's better! No need for a polemic around this. If you look at the tests, you allways got a mixed image. If you look at the comments, there is a lot of superflous, meaningless oppinion, including yous and thios one.

In reply to:

ovlov: But... But.. But... All I hear from the Canon apologists on here is that Canon's products are fine with the dynamic range they have. No improvement is needed!

I guess we can now safely say that even Canon disagrees with ALL of you.

DR matters, but it is only part of the equation. Resoliution matters too, but also here it's only part of the equation. I'm still saying that my D20's 8 Mpix are enough for getting correct and awsome pictures. But I still porefer my current 5DMIII for its fast AF, high ISO, higher resolution (yes, even if 8 is OK, 20 is better) and higher DR.

It's not a religion, it's simply technological progress.

In reply to:

Mikael Risedal: why put a new sensor inside a Canon ? there are no need to have a larger dynamic range according many comments during the years here at Dpreview and at other Canon sites. why not settle for the higher noise and banding as usual

Pffffff.... If you have nothing intelligent to contribute, then stay quiet!

PetaPi: I think Canon paid a lot of money to get a positive article about the 80D.
Or did some favours to Amazon.
Grasping at straws.
Canon now has better blacks ? Is that it ?

@PetaPi - how many are you paid to publish negatives on Canon? Don't be a fool and make a fool of yourself.

When I bought my first Canon, it was the best of his class. Then, later, Nikon and Sony (Minolta) took over the lead. I had invested in lenses, so I stayed with Canon. It's not a religious mantra for me to stay with Canon, but only to protect my invest in lenses. If Canon can now take over again, it's a standard situation in a race, where nobody will ever see the finish line.

There are better ways to achive a flawless workflow without edited images. Cropping and level adjustments are NOT edits of an image, except when done in very rare circumstances to change the perception of a picture.
