Why would canon release a big mpix sensor when they are market leaders? Their sales are good and they have the technology for a while. R&D costs a lot, so proper product releases are key to success...
If they had made a duplicate version with no video, I would have bought that instead even if it was the same price.
Why??? How does having it hurt you? At the very least you'd be a fool since you'd pay the same for something that would have less retail value and yet behave EXACTLY the same in hand for you.
Why do so many still photographers have such hatred for video? I thought photographers were supposed to be creative, open-minded types always wanting to explore new things? Even if you don't want to, all the talk about paying as much or even more just to get a body with video disabled sounds utterly nuts to me.
Wire transfer goes into Adorama account holding area. Later, a human being looks at it and for whatever reason (suspicious due to no address...or maybe they just hate money or don't like customers from your state) decides to not accept to deposit it, maybe even after input from a supervisor (ie refuses it). Then, that human being or even another person, starts the process to wire it back to your bank. This maybe takes a day or 2 or 3. When you call (angry worried upset etc), you talk to someone who doesn't have all the correct facts or doesn't explain it well to you.
Perhaps not the greatest customer service to you since they certainly didn't have answers that made you comfortable or happy. Sometimes stating something that is not correct is not lying (I see this all the time and it is usually due to ignorance).
Being one state away, I might have gotten a cashiers check and taken a one day trip to NYC.
It's a flagship
I'm not sure what you are basing that on...
Your very basic take-away from this should be nothing other than "Don't use wire transfers."
I hated this idea at first for many of the reasons brought up here. But, I am kind of coming around in thinking about it. I may have to go and thoroughly read the terms of service. But - I am currently on CS5, I have not felt the push to upgrade to CS6 because the bulk of what I do is in Lightroom (I use PS for the fine tuning side of things that lightroom just can't do). So for a user like me, PS is just a fine editing plugin for lightroom - and yeah that's definitely not worth forking over the dough to upgrade unless there is some substantial new tool I feel I need to have.
So, for someone like me, this new CC may actually not be a bad thing. Unless there's something I am missing, I can now have the latest capabilites without having such a large up front price. As a wedding/portrait shooter in an area that has very defined seasons - meaning my need for PS would be from May-November - at $20 a month that would mean I'd be paying about $140 (maybe more if I need it in the winter). I have to check the fine print to see if there are penalties for letting your subscription lapse, or, some kind of silly startup fee. This may be a loophole that they find a way to fill by implementing penalties, but, it may be awesome for the occasional user because they can now have access to $600 software for $20 (as long as they don't mind just using it for a month.
I do hope they don't go cloud with lightroom. We shall see what happens I guess. If enough people boycott CC, then it won't take adobe too long to change their tune...
