Think I have no reason to moan about the subscription model now! Gonna sign up tomorrow morning. What do you guys think?
and what if you use more than just photoshop? now those who use other programs are really put through the pricing ringer. plus those who invested hundreds and thousands with Adobe already get nothing that those who never spent a dime on them yet.
worst of all the second you stop paying it's all gone, doesn't matter if you've given them $2000 over some years, quit paying and it's gone, hell no
(unless they make it ridiculously low like $7.50 a month, forever, for the full suite) heck no to software rentals!
I was starting to warm up to the CC idea, but hesitant because the price was temporary, and I don't like locking myself into a photo organization system that I can only lease. Locking the price is nice, but they also stripped out the free website (Behance) and reduced your storage to 2 gb. Not a huge deal, but I was considering moving away from things like Flickr and trying out Behance, and admit it really was motivation for me to consider going to the cloud.
Photoshop updates don't really mean much to me, but they rarely do. Mostly they seem to make more and more advanced tools that just do what I can do manually. I think the tools work well for beginner to intermediate users, but have limited impact for more advanced use.
Other than that, no Lightroom update, and a bunch of stuff for an iPad that I don't have. Meh.
Seems like a stupid limitation
Depends on your point of view, from Canon's perspective it's a very smart limitation :-> as it isn't immediately recognizable but becomes more important the more you use flashes ... so they sell two flashes instead of one, one basic and one upgrade (the latter also as a master flash)I have to admit the 430 exii is looking a bit dated in comparison to my YN 560III flashes with their built in radio trigger. Damn those are some nifty flashes!
Well, after my very mixed experience with the Yn rt trigger (I don't know about their other gear) I have found new enthusiasm about original Canon flash equipment ... whatever you say about money-grabbing Canon, they certainly have a very high reliability and "just works" factor.
Pity the 430ex isn't sealed though, that stopped me shooting even in light rain a couple of times as high charge electricity and water don't square :-o
I like the size of the 430 exii personally, it packs a fair amount of power too.
I've got it, too - but it has very slow recycling time and holds much less charge for multiple flashes. It's all around very nice for indoors though and not as heavy as the 580ex2-type. The only problem is the (deliberately crippled) limited flash head movement vs. the "big brother" models, next to the missing master capability of course.
I was not allowed inside the gates in Tampa during a Monster truck show with my 200-400 and 1dx because of the size. It was to big.
I could not argue with the guards, nor the man in charge of the press. They told me it was sad, that I came all the way from Sweden and not where able to get inside with that setup.
I never bothered with the EF-M 18-55It's actually better than you might think - nice metal build quality, the IS works well, and it's sharper than the DxO charts would indicate. My preferred carry method for this camera is actually to have the body capped, um, body in one pocket and the 18-55 in the other. When I'm ready to shoot, I just assemble them...
I'm considering the 11-22, but this little telephoto seems like it would be nice for travel as well. If only it had a viewfinder, it would be the perfect travel camera. Maybe the M3...
Overall a good sign, meaning Canon has not given up on EOS-M system yet.
Will be interesting to see, what Canon's will do regarding their mirrorless APS-C offering ...
1. Will the EF-M 55-200 be offered in US?
The lens is featured on the Canon Europe homepage and on Japan, China and other Asian homepages. But not (yet?) on US homepage.
We will know the answer quite soon.
2. Will EOS M2 be offered in Europe too? In US?
Currently open to anybody's guess. Personally, I don't think so.
3. Will there be an M3?
same thing as now, just with DPAF 70D sensor + AF?
Or higher end, with EVF ... as a fully capable Fuji XT-1 competitor?
And if so ... will it be offered in Japan/China only? Or Asia? Europe? US?
My best case scenario would be a surprise "killer EOS-M3" announced in August/for photokina ... fully competitive mirrorless APS-C body [+system] in terms of sensor, AF performance, EVF, battery charge. Don't think it will happen, though. More likely, Canon will continue to snooze and lose ... and continue to watch how Sony and Fuji are nibbling away at their APS-C market share. :-)
f/5.6 --> f/6.3 is 1/3 of a stop. REALLY people? You're going to ***** and moan about 1/3 of a stop? Seriously? OBVIOUSLY, the point of the M is to shrink things down as much as possible. 1/3 of a stop throughout the focal range is a "duh" kind of compromise. As in... DUH... DO IT! (when talking about mirrorless)
Yes, I do take issue with f/6.3 - beecause in practice it likely means T/7.9
Instead of filter thread 52mm, Canon shouild have made it f/5.6 and 55mm or f/4.0 and 58mm filter thread, even if that wozuld have meant 50 grams more or 100 grams more weight and 50 dollars or 100 dollars higher price.
