In Topic: From Lightroom 4 to CC

As Tim has said, Yes!

lR will not only upgrade you catalog for yes with CC, it will also keep your legacy catalog if you want to go back to LR4 in future.

In Topic: SLR vs. Mirrorless. What is the best camera for macro?

23 July 2015 - 12:17 AM

This is a great discussion-thanks to all the participants!


There is one factor that ha snot really been explored that is critical I think, and that is autofocus performance. Resolution, crop factors, IQ, high ISO etc are all important (well ISO not so much for macro), but none of them are any good if the camera can't focus!


One of the areas that both Canon and Nikon have developed significantly is their camera's AF speed and accuracy, particularly in their pro and semi-pro models. Phase detection is still significantly better than contrast, despite the mirrorless manufacturers claim to the contrary.


In terms of choice, can either system produce stunning macro images? The answer is definitely yes! Will an SLR produce them more reliably and consistently? The answer is also yes! Against that are the factors of bulk, weight and expense, which are all important considerations. It is up to the individual to balance yes factors and decide which is more important i guess.


Those who say that mirrorless will catch up SLR performance will possibly be correct at some point, but it is important to recognize that SLRs are getting better at a significant rate too.

I noticed it too. Manual focus and manual aperture would make it a challenge...


When I first heard about it I got so excited!
