  1. Adobe CRUSHES Apple with regards to RAW compatibility. No serious photographer would bother using Aperture since it takes months, almost years to get compatibility to many popular cameras.

  2. Well, I hope you got the message: raw format isn’t a digital negative, never was never will be. It is a proprietary vendor code. If until now you cannot read your new cameras raw file what do you think will read it in ten years.

    Yes, Bubba Jones uses a digital camera, but 95% of use is for testing. For personal photos and for clients it is 95% film. Won’t need a computer to look at a real negative. Just saying…
