Adobe Talks OS Support for Next Version of Lightroom

Adobe Talks OS Support for Next Version of Lightroom

From Adobe:
We are hard at work on the next major release of Lightroom, and wanted to share some information on operating system requirements in order to give everyone time to prepare for the release.

In order to leverage the latest operating system features and technologies, Lightroom 6 will require Mac OS X 10.8 or above, or a 64 bit version of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1. Focusing our work on more modern operating systems and architectures allows us to spend more time adding functionality requested by users, including additional advanced imaging features and improving general application performance.

If you are on Mac OS X 10.7, or a 32 bit version of Windows, you will continue to be able to install and run Lightroom 5 and use Lightroom mobile. However, you will not be able to install Lightroom 6 until you upgrade to a supported operating system.

If you are currently running Mac OS X 10.7, Apple offers a free upgrade (here) to a more current operating system. For Windows users, Microsoft has a how-to reference (here) to help you determine whether you are running a 32 or 64 bit version of Windows.

Canon EOS Rebel 750D Spec List [CR1]

Canon EOS Rebel 750D Spec List [CR1]

A spec list we were given has the upper end Rebel split into two different cameras, a 750D and a 760D. The North American naming was not given for the cameras. We expect an announcement for a new Rebel(s) to come in the next  few weeks.

The biggest thing I notice in this specification list is the 24.2mp image sensor. It has been assumed by most that any new Rebel would have the 20.2mp sensor from the EOS 70D.

Canon Rebel 750D/760D Specifications

  • Full HD movies, MP4 format, HDR movie, automatic shooting modes (EOS 750D )
  • 24.2MP sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor
  • ISO 100-12,800 range
  • Flicker Detection technology
  • Five frames per second continuous shooting mode
  • 19 cross-type AF point system
  • Hybrid CMOS AF III
  • Rear Quick Control Dial (EOS 760D )
  • Creative movie modes (EOS 760D )
  • Wi-Fi and NFC

This information comes from an unknown source and I’m hoping for some clarification on the model split if it is indeed true. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of difference between the 2 models. Please notice the [CR1] rating on this post, and treat it accordingly.
