Adobe announces Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC (and it’s the end for the standalone version)

Share

Adobe just announced two version of Lightroom: Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic C. The differences between the two are well explained at Imaging Resource and ThePhoBlographer.

But the very annoying news is that there will be no standalone version of the new Lightroom CC. IR reports that Lightroom 6.13 will be released on October 26 with support for the Nikon D850 and no additional camera support will be added beyond 2017.

I am so pissed off by Adobes cloud strategy that I prefer to use Macphun (although I miss many of Adobes’ features set).

Update on the A7sIII (or A9s) rumor…

Share

The one source who correctly told me about the new RX camera announcement on Sept 12 (rumor here) just confirmed once more the new A7s is coming “soon”. I know the word “soon” is not helping us much but this is what he told me.

All we know is that between now and Oct 24 Sony will have one more press event. And again “press event” isn’t a guarantee for a product announcement neither.

I am not giving this rumor any rank as it’s too vague for now. So keep expectations low(!!!) and let’s see if we get some more info the upcoming hours/days. Even if this source shared a correct info on Sept 12 there is still no guarantee he will be right this time too! So please don’t put too much hope on this for now ok?

P.S.: of course, if he is right (again “IF”!!!) expect the A7s to have same A9 PDAF (he wrote me this previously)

(UPDATED) Sony announces the new HXC-FB80 camcorder. And that was the “exciting” new camera?

Share

Yesterday I reported two news:

1) Sony teased the launch of an “exciting new camera” for the NABshow starting on October 18.
2) Sony will have a second press event (with product announcement?) at PhotoPlus next week (October 24 or 25).

Today Sony announced the new HXC-FB80 camcorder. And the bad news is that I seriously think this is the “exciting camera” Sony was teasing. And once again its disappointing news for us after the “game changing” RX10m4 (which is a nice camera but surely not game changing). But I told you to keep expectations low on this latest Sony teaser. The good news is:

I told you in my previous rumors I am 99% certain new Sony Alpha Stuff will be announced in the time between now and mid November. That’s what multiple sources told me and what a leak at Sony’s latest camera registration (see image below via Nokishita) confirmed: The camera model with the code “930439” could be the a7sIII or A7III. Fingers crossed the next announcement on October 24-25 (next week) will be finally the right one!

UPDATE: The one source who correctly told me about the new RX camera announcement on Sept 12 (rumor here) just confirmed once more A7s is coming soon:

The problem is that word “soon”. Soon tomorrow or at Photoplus? Source did not answer yet…
