  1. KelbyOne will evidently start supporting MacPhun products. Scott already has presents for Luminar. Oh the times they are a changing.... http://macphunsoftware.com/campaign/6acab5bde7/c6336fb40f/1075f8a85c0416fdd300304f0/mcasan%40ourimages.net?utm_source=Luminar&utm_campaign=c6336fb40f-Kelby_presets_Luminar_EN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6acab5bde7-c6336fb40f-273015209&mc_cid=c6336fb40f&mc_eid=0f4796ea31
  2. Obviously Scott Kelby has built an empire on Lr and Ps. His videos and books are on the 7 point system for using Lr, not ACR. For my camera, DxO Optics does a far better job of raw conversion than anything from Adobe.
  3. Bug fixes and new camera support. No new features. Makes me wonder if there will be an Lr 2017 release. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/whats-new.html
  4. In the latest MacOS release Apple says they now support E-M1 II. But they give no details. It seems as Photos can now open a standard ORF file. It does not seem to be able to handle the large high res ORF. And it does not even recognize the ORI file. Glad I am not holding my breath for Apple to get their stuff together. Thank goodness for DxO Optics!
  5. One of the MacOS features is Night Shift. Got to Settings and them Displays. There you can find the Night Shift tab to turn it on or off. I can see a photographer or other graphic artist trying to finalize an important image as the carefully calibrated color managed monitor slows moves into a yellow tint to help you get read for bed. In the morning you go back to the image to get ready to send it our or print it....and wonder why it has a sky blue cast to it.

  7. Not sure I would be starting a Panasonic kit right now.... http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Companies/Panasonic-takes-out-scalpel-again-as-profits-falter
  8. I will stick to my $29 L plate.

  10. Adobe released Lr 2015.9 today plus corresponding update to ACR. The contents are bug fixes and new camera support. For E-M1 II Lr now seems to open the large high res ORF. But it seems to ignore the ORI file. IMHO that is a half ass solution. I will stick with DxO Optics as it opens both sizes of ORF plus ORI.

  13. Already booked the order for the E-M1 II for $1799. At there site you tell them what camera you want to trade in and you get a discount code to apply at checkout. It worked just fine. No mention from Adorama about actually shipping the Pentax to them. Likely they would not want a 30+ year old SLR.
  14. Yes $200 off the body. Also hundreds off on lenses also. Some planning to purchase a new Orly m43 kit could save up to $800. And of course if you purchase via B&H or Adorama, there is no sales tax or shipping costs (unless you live in (NY/NJ). Amazon collects state sales tax. http://www.43rumors.com/trade-in-any-camera-andor-lens-and-get-up-to-an-800-bonus-on-olympus-cameras-and-lenses/
  15. I just traded in a Pentax Super Program for $200 at Adorama. Fee shipping and no sales tax. Just in time for the wife's birthday! http://www.43rumors.com/new-olympus-trade-in-program-will-go-live-on-sunday/
