Lightroom 6 HDR https://images-tv.adobe.com/avp/vr/bf606b2a-9fed-4c01-831b-919191f54a52/ab842d11-1a93-4b5f-881a-322defc10a23/adee3c2a-e270-4f84-8ec9-84cafccc596a_20150130032106.1280x720at2400_vp8.webm?PID=3485381

Looks like it makes a .DNG  also you can see the face recognition function icon, same with panorama so looks like those rumors are correct.

actually merge to HDR PRO is very very good you set it to 32bit and you then use ACR/Lighroom to edit it with a huge DR, now if LR does this all in LR and better it will be great

I don't deny it's useful, and I've converted some tripod hdr into floating point dng to use with LR5's high dr editing. It's just that as existing tools do just fine, it's nothing to get excited about for me...

... UNLESS: The big question is if LR6's pano/hdr tools will break the raw workflow like external tools do. If Adobe manages to do stitching and hdr merging/fusing with "layers" of their acr'ed raw files you can still edit individually, that'd be great.

IMG_0001 was cleverly joking, you, privatebydesign, are simply rude.

Good ol' pdb might be very direct at times, but he's also very helpful. I guess there's a lot of different approaches to what is polite and what's not, and in this case the paper bag analogy made me laugh :-)



problem with the PS route is the massive TIFF files, maybe the built in LR HDR will not create any files other the preview? that alone would be nice, same with panoramas.

anyone think LR will have focus stacking as well

They'll save that for LR7 :-p ...

... and rightly so: I'm less than excited about LR6's announced hdr and pano functions. While it'll add a lot of "value" and fix Canon's dr problem :-> I very much doubt it'll come close to specialized stand-alone tools like Helicon, Photomatrix, Autopano and such. It's the same with their recent "upright" perspective correction, nice to have, but nowhere near DxO.

Performance gains

Import and refine your photos in record time. Lightroom leverages compatible graphics process to get you better performance, especially when you edit your images in the Develop module.

Remember when Adobe said it was not possible and even if they did it there would be no performance gains?

CC is not "ridiculously cheap", but a nasty monthly rent that I will never accept.
Especially since I won't ever touch Photoshop because of its totally un-intuitive 1980's style user interface.

Hmmm, that might be the most negative mindset I've seen in a long time. I get it that you don't want to pay a monthly fee, but at least considering my investments in pre-CC photoshop and lightroom versions it's cheaper to just pay the low monthly fee. Your choice to make but it doesn't make it "not ridiculously cheap" for all of us...

What I really don't get is the bash on the photoshop interface. I can't understand what you're complaining about... ? What's wrong with it, because I never experience anything close to that? Maybe it's the fact that most people use shortcuts? I'd think that it would get tedious if you have to pick everything from a menu. But then again, most users with a bit of experience use the shortcuts.

I've used computers since 1981, and PS has the worst user interface of any user application I've ever used.  It's so bad that I use Elements 9 over CS6 just because the user interface is a little bit less horrible.

I would never buy the $9.99 bundle because it's a ripoff for those like me that don't use PS.

yea the UI is so bad that's why GIMP and many other programs copy it.

No DR improvement?

Not much point to any of this, then.

Yup Canon knew that they could not compete with the 36MP Sony sensor at low ISO and DR so they made the 50MP sensor to win at something but once Sony does a 50MP sensor i don't know what Canon will do?

Not to start a flame war but, queue all the fanbois on the Cannon Rumors site to complain and sight how <insert maker here> is superior blah blah blah.

In my opinion if you want a <insert maker here> go buy one.

Canon is gong to do what Canon is going to do. I'm going out to make some images now with my fine camera and lenses.

Really? we are a fanbois for wanting CANON to have a better SENSOR? only fanboy is you for defending CANON for no reason.

wow they went to 50mp because they know they can't keep up with the ISO and DR of the 36mp sensor so they act like they won with that dumb 50mp number WOW CANON


Can Canon make a better sensor or is this the best they can do?

SD slot its useless just to slow, maybe they can add a CFast slot? with 500mb/s write i would think that would be the only card i would ever need, if its still SD and CF damn the buffer will have to be big or its going to not be able to shoot a continues burst.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mk3 Firmware 1.3.3 is out
« on: January 28, 2015, 10:37:50 PM »
Changes
Firmware Version 1.3.3 incorporates the following improvement and fix.

1. Improves the AF controllability when shooting in Live View mode with a wide-angle lens (fixed focal length or zoom).
2. Corrects some incorrect indications on the "English" and "Russian" menu screens.

Firmware Version 1.3.3 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.2.3 or earlier. If your camera's firmware is already Version 1.3.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
When updating the firmware of your camera, please first review the instructions thoroughly before downloading.

Note:
Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3).

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Difference in image from APS-C to FF
« on: January 10, 2015, 06:44:32 PM »
APSC with a EF lens will have sharper center to corners vs FF on many lenses as it will use mostly the center of the EF lens.
