The software business is much harder than it looks. Developing photography software even harder still. But I am glad to say that with Luminar 4.1, I think Skylum has found a sweet spot between serving serious and casual photographers.
I have never in my life written a review of a cable. But there’s a first time for everything. I’ve reviewed hundreds of electronic products for various magazines, blogs, websites and more. But it never occurred to me – that spread out among the cameras, lenses, camera bags, tripods and more that I have reviewed, a 1.5 meter, USB cable would be something that got me excited. And then I found out about Nomad.
Flickr has been around since 2004. Yahoo bought the company from its husband and wife founders a year later, and pretty much ran it into the ground. Verizon bought Yahoo and things got worse. Then, SmugMug bought Flickr. I know the people who run both companies and they are all hard-working, dedicated, sincere, people. SmugMug bought Flickr to save it but most likely underestimated the cost of hosting six BILLION photographs in very high-resolution.
One of the things I tend to take for granted in my Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera is how quiet it is. Even when I don’t use silent shutter mode, it barely makes a sound.

THESE are far more important than your camera, your lens, your settings or anything else.
