The Digital Darkroom • Re: Adobe Lightroom is now on the cloud

You can still get the stand-alone version Lightroom 6, but there will be no LR7, and eventually LR6 will be useless as updates are made to cameras and lenses that will not find their way into the LR6 profiles.

Fifty years ago the cloud was something different.

But, "For desktop users who prefer the current, non-cloud app, Adobe has re-branded it as Lightroom Classic CC".

General Discussion • Re: Yashica making a come-back...in digital

Tue, 10/17/2017 - 16:11
I was looking at the Kickstarter campaign page, and it's rather unusual. Quirky. More Diana and 1960s Hong Kong than modern-day Japan and I'm not sure what else.

It has a plastic body with metallic highlights. A fixed-focus 35mm (full-frame equivalent) lens that is f/2.8, and apparently an f/2.0 lens is in the works. A fast lens, particularly f/2.0, goes against the rest of the camera.

No LCD displays or monitor. Who needs those?

SD memory cards. Good. Runs on two AA batteries - that's odd.

It resembles a Yashica Electro. I'm curious. I don't know that I'm US$160 curious.

At one point I was interested in getting one, more for adding it to the collections than trying to take good photos with it. But suddenly, after only two days of the Kickstarter campaign, they changed the specs, making it a total P&S with no controls operable by the user except as to what digifilm cartridge to install, then compose the shot. Plus, an all black "limited edition" version for double the price of the chrome model. And, they raised the prices on everything.

Naw, I'm not going to waste money on it. Too many shenanigans being pulled by the sellers. If I'd been one of the early investors through the Kickstarter, I'd be asking for my money back.

Not sure if he was a Deadhead or not, but this seems appropriate at the moment.

That does suck, big time.

Oh well, there's going to be a bit of a bash somewhere, what with him and a certain CE Nelson on the loose together!

What image editor(s) are you using on Linux? Darktable is not too bad, and I used to quite like using Lightzone.

I used to think that was all fun, building your own PC, but like cars and such, I've grown tired of working on them. Haven't done a thing to my old Dell Dimension 4400 (Pentium IV with Win XP Pro) since upgrading ages ago, but it still cranks right along, thanks to some good AV software (Webroot). It is a bit arthritic though, and like me suffers from spells every once in a while.

I did get a 17" laptop from Dell that came with Win8.1, which was almost immediately updated to Win10. Don't like it with either system, though that may be because I didn't bother to get a touch screen model, which Win10 is designed for. But at least I was able to switch it into "Classic" mode. Only problem with that is it doesn't stay in Classic, you have to reset it every time you boot up. But yeah, getting bugged with calls for getting this app or that app is really annoying. I did think about just wiping it clean, Mike, and installing Linux, but I guess that is out of the question if it's like what you ran across with the MS blockade.

It has sat for so long, I'm pretty sure the AV license has run out on it. I originally was considering it my desktop replacement, but it is so unwieldy, and the screen is only half properly view-able at most angles that I just kind of hate it. And it's not even paid off yet.

So I'm considering getting a smaller model that has enough to do photo editing, and I can put a cell dongle on so I don't have to hook up to sketchy WiFi connections when I'm on the road. And a touch screen.

Kalle to me always seemed to be a bit of a free spirit, even when he had pressing obligations to attend to. He now has all the freedom in the world.

I'd hoist a Fosters to him, but I'm no longer a drinking man, so I'll just do it in the figurative.

Here's to ya, mate. May your tank never run empty.

Oh, what a loss.

I am glad he checked in with us to let us know he was going, and to give us a chance to say, if not goodbye, then how we appreciated him.

I hope the end was easy for him.
