Adobe *JUST* released new Camera RAW CC and Lightroom CC/Lightroom Classic CC updates. This update brings full support for the Sony a7RIII. Adobe also added the 24-105mm lens profile support. As expected Adobe does NOT support Pixel Shift.TWO NEW UPDATES TO LIGHTROOM CLASSIC CCStart your edits with Auto, which uses Adobe Sensei to intelligently apply adjustments based on a photo’s light and color characteristics. Adobe's Auto feature now uses advanced machine learning to automatically apply the best edits for these slider controls in your photos: Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks, Saturation, and Vibrance. In addition, the Auto feature now also includes the ability to optimize the adjustments of the photo even after cropping has been applied.The underlying neural nets have been trained with thousands of professionally shot and manually edited photos to evaluate and correct an image, just like a skilled human photographer.In the Develop module, the Auto option is located next to Tone in the Basic panel.AND - The ability to remove individual color samples within a color range mask has been added in this release. Simply Option(Mac)/Alt(Win)+click the existing samples that you want to remove.More infoBuy the a7RIII at AmazonBuy the a7RIII at B&H Photo

Week in Review (AKA in case you missed it)
Last Sunday I posted on Facebook this status"1531 vs 840. Guess?"The answer - The number of shots I took with the Sony vs the Canon at last weekend's wedding! That says a lot. It is a VERY capable camera and I am happy with the performance. Full review coming soon.Commlite Vs Metabones reviewFirst thing I change videohttp://photorec.tv/2015/09/tamron-has-announced-a-pair-of-full-frame-f1-8-primes/ Preorder (on B&H) in Sony A, Nikon F, and Canon EF mounts. 35mm and 45mm each for $599Note: 70D Magic Lantern doesn’t have FPS overridehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdxdZtX6opc (Bearly escaped with their lives)EOS M3Canon 35mm + Canon vs. Sigma discussion

Today's on Kelby's Show, Tom Hogarty, a product manager for Adobe demoed a prototype/alpha/may-never-see-the-light-of-day app that provides photographers a way to edit RAW files with many of the develop modules we love in Lightroom and the ability to rate, sort, flag etc. Cool and then. . . all of this would be synced through the cloud to your master library!! That would be awesome. I now imagine myself relaxing, a high resolution tablet on my lap, swiping through photos, rating, pinching to zoom and check focus and quickly dealing with a large number of photos in a smooth, efficient and comfortable manner. I might be getting ahead of myself here - there was no release date and no mention that this was even definitively scheduled as a product that is coming to market.I queued the video to start where they begin discussing the app.In Related News - I get asked all the time for photo editing software options and my answer 90% of the time is Lightroom. It is approachable program though I wouldn't necessarily call it beginner friendly that offers a ton of power, maybe three tons! But there are times that people what a more photoshop like experience and Mac users have an option that was recently update and very affordable, Acorn- Until the end of this month it is being offered for $29, that is a lot easy to swallow than the hundreds Photoshop costs. There are of course many things Photoshop can do that Acorn can't but I am betting for 90% of you photographers out there, Acorn combined with Lightroom will handle almost all your needs.Window's users feeling left out - I have been playing around with http://pixlr.com/ It is browser based but certainly capable and the interface doesn't look all that different from Acorn. And of course since it is browser based it is available to anyone.
