Of course, CS6 has to come out almost contemporaneously with the 5DIII/X....must...book​...more....work

Not just that but the 1D-X, D4 and D800, all top end units that need RAW support from Adobe.

A wedding photographer who knows he is not as good as he could be so always looking to improve. Happy to take any and all constructive advice and critique!

So, anyone want to guess who got CS5 for $40 brand new from adobe?

Want to sell it to me for $50? J/K. I have CS5. How did you manage it though?

Hey Everyone

Thought you might enjoy this. New stuff thats gonna be in Photoshop CS6. Take a look at sneak peek 4:eek:. There is also some tutorials from Laura Shoe on how to use some of the lightroom features. Looks like lightroom 4 is going to be a great upgrade for those using lightroom. Your going to be able to do amazing things with the control panels and the adjustment brushes....you can now brush in White balance affects where ever you might need it.....gonna be pretty cool stuff

Sneak Peek #4 is amazing

I always wondered why they didnt let you brush in WB changes. It seemed like it was an oversight.

This is going to be a great feature for me. especially with weddings and being inside churches. We often get day light,Tungsten and mixed light at the same time. Gelling the flash helps a ton, but this will get a lot of use im sure. You should be able to make it as it appears to your eye

Granted, it might still be easier to do this in PS making two or three images since its selection tools are much better.

Yup

I got my hands on the 1Dx at wppi. Amazing camera. Best camera on the market for sure. I took some shots at 25000 ISO and they looked like most of my 40D files at 1600 ISO. Crazy good IQ. But honestly, way more camera than i need. We are using the 5D2, 1DMKIV and 1DMKIII and im perfectly happy with these cameras. 1DMKIV is the best camera i have ever used but the 1Dx is going to be better. Its getting to the point of How Much Camera do you really need. I have specific reasons why i baught the 1DMKIV and 5D2 so they both meet that need. 1Dx is 2.25 stops better ISO performance than a 5D2, so that makes it very tempting.

Waiting on the 5D3 to see if they are going to update the AF system. If they do and its good, We will sell the 5D2 and grab it. If its not, We will put the 1Dx in the 2013 budget.

I'm going to be at Focus (Europe's largest photography show) next week so hope to play with the 1D-X... wonder if a 5DIII/X will be there too?

I'm OK with my 5DmkII bodies and a 7D for the very little sports stuff I now do. Used to have a 1DmkIII when I was shooting sports every week but no need for weddings and portraits.

I need more megapixels!!!! :cool:

Seriously though, I want to be able to crop a high-res head shot out of a waist-up. I'm tired of worrying so much about certain compositional choices that are driven almost entirely by resolution issues.

Charro, how close of a headshot are you wanting? You should be able to get a good (certainly enough for 16x20) head and a smidge of shoulders crop with the 5D2 from a waist up shot.

For printing purposes I want 3000 pixels per 12".

16x24 is pretty much native print resolution for the 5d2 imo.

This is my only real frustration with the 7D. But it's WAY better than my previous camera (30D). So I can't really complain too much for now.

Would love to make the jump to FF, but can't afford it until the end of this year, at the earliest. Getting the studio space sucked up all available extra funds...
