EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]

As much as I enjoy exploring the latest from Neuro[resepct] and others on this site, I feel you guys need to take some chill pills ;D,it is after all only photography and not life saving surgery,just out of intensive care which gives a different perspective on things,keep on with entertaining us with your posts but possibly a little less rancour 8)

Software & Accessories / Mr Adobe and CC
« on: January 21, 2015, 06:16:30 AM »
I have been told that Mr Adobe has broken what many here in Australia considered a cast -iron g'tee,you can no longer sign up for lightroom and 2014 CC for Aus$9.99 p/m,I am told it is up to around $40p/m.If true it is just another example of the world domination and lack of respect for Aussie photogs,please tell me it is not true[small hope I know]

I have a less than $100 [AUS] phone with a 2.5 in screen and a 6D and 7D,you guess which is used for photography and which for talking on,also I print my work[large],as you can see I am not from the Right Now generation.

Technical Support / Re: What kind of photo printer do you use?
« on: December 10, 2014, 01:31:47 AM »
I have always printed photographs[in my sixties]so when I went digital I began the whole story again from wet deck to ink jet. I have kept the canon workflow/DNA intact by using Canon printers,I currently have a Pro1 and before that   a 9000 mkII, wish I had kept the 9000.I am currently on my second Pro 1,the first was replaced by Canon under warranty,head probs and tracking marks thru print,unfortunately I would not be able to recommend the Pro 1 as my replacement copy suffers the same probs[haven't even used the initial ink tanks completely yet]most unimpressed,am trying to find money for a large format/roll feed Epson as I print a lot of B/W and at least you can change the head for a full mono one.

Thanks Eldar for your work.I have just finished watching DPR interview with US Sigma Rep, he claims all lenses ,that is All lenses are checked for sharpness before despatch,from reading prev posts it would seem the testers need their eyes tested  8) 8)

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark 2 Preorders "sound off"
« on: October 24, 2014, 04:00:49 AM »
Ah you lucky Nth Americans,so many places to buy from,cheap prices,[7DII will be AUS$2300-2500]no firm date for distribution,Victoria will get it first followed by New South Wales[that's Melbourne and Sydney to you Northeners]with poor old Queensland after the others are supplied,this is if other releases are anything to go by,oh for parity with US $.

Reviews / Re: Scott Kelby 7D Mark II Real World
« on: October 08, 2014, 06:12:41 PM »
Joining photography forums for me was abou improving my knowledge and interacting with like minded people.

 Seems what I didn't realize is the immense amount of negative sentiment that gets pushed on here. The constant, rabid want for suspicion and failure is becoming super stale.

Time to move on maybe. +1

Have to agree with Sabaki,it does get a little tedious reading the attacks that get posted, no harm was caused by Ivan and I enjoyed his musings,so what if it is in a new thread....
