I wouldn't worry about that chris.

stupid question time - if one were to be made redundant, would it not be unreasonable to expect to be paid severance payment on the last day of employment?

Been my personal experience, only if you are a politician or CEO. In truth you will be lucky to get any redundancy/severance at all. Sorry. Current employment laws are not biased to the employee's benefit. Not at all.

On a photography note, can any one here read/analyse a crash report? My photoshop crashes when I ask it to open a Canon raw but not a JPG.

it would depend on what your contract says.

when I got made redundant from Di Data, even tho my contract didn't say so, I got 2 months. cause they where nice like that.

thanks guys, my contract says I will be paid, just doesn't state when.
Muppets Inc. seem to think it's perfectly acceptable to be paid nearly a week after my final day. (& affects 6 other staff from Field Delivery which I think is pretty rubbish)
In the big scheme of things not a huge drama but something I feel could & should have been handled better. I shall cross them off my Christmas-card list...
One of the other guys being laid off has been asked to work another month as they've more work than staff to deal with it! I know what my answer would have been...

Worth asking if there is any updates that need applying - what version of PS? probably hard to ascertain, but what raw update version is it?

Nice - What does it do so much better than your existing gear & do you need it to be better? I'd like a 1DX- MK II but don't really need one...

Thanks, it happened after a recent update but not sure when as my photo activities have wound down quite a bit. All my updates are up to date. HP Pavilion 23 all in one with touch screen (I hate that) and fitted 16 gigs ram and i5.

However after days of hair pulling, wailing, gnashing of teefs and using some pretty exotic language and just general fuming (I still dont like lightroom) I have found the answer in advice given late last yr on Adobe forums. Here it is, open Photoshop, go to preferences, Camera Raw preferences and uncheck graphics accelerator! Done, dusted, now I am a 69 yr old geek! :twisted::-P :p:grin::grin::eek: :p:-P;-)a who likes smilies :)

Every now and then I am tempted by a Sony full frame mirrorless, then I realise how big, heavy, and expensive the Sony lenses are. And for what I shoot, a full frame sensor would only help me about once a year.

Changing lens mounts is too expensive to do often, but if there is a clear benefit to how you shoot then I say go for it. I don’t regret my change. And to me it looks like Canon have been asleep for the last 5 years.

AF points. AF Points. The 6D AF points just don't cut it and I don't like the 6Dmk2. the MP count doens't matter for me as I don't do big prints.

plus I am reminded of this,




being mirrorless doens't matter to me. to me the mirrorless has nothing to do with reducing the size as technology now means we don't need that mirror.

With this camera I like the fact it's USB-C and one can charge the camera via this. also quicker when being attached to PC. Dual memory slots and better DR.

but really it comes down to AF and the 5 axis stabilization. I had been thinking of getting IS macro, with this camera I don't need to.
