There are those who go to wild places intending to do things in them; there are those who go to wild places just to be in them. I am of the “be” persuasion. – Guy Tal When it comes to nature enthusiasts,...

    C1 ( and macOS) crashes when using the repair brush …

    The NEC Multisync PA271W is probably on the way to me via UPS and I hope that it is then so far back in order and then as a second device next to an older EIZO WideGamut monitor at our reserve workstation.

    @Dale: I read out the operating hours when the device is on the table :).

    After I otherwise more than a week ago already thought to be through with all topics the update and the exchange of the hardware concerning, I had already noted that the Fantec 4bay Tower had problems with the power supply at the new Orico USB 3.2 Gen2 HUB and then, what however also at a USB 3.0 HUB as well as at a completely new RSHTECH USB 3.2 Gen2 HUB the case was, as soon as there were several devices connected.

    Annoyingly, this forced me to make a change again, so I replaced the three Fantec 4Bay towers with three DAS QNap TR-002 2Bay HW-Raids, which worked fine on the new RSHTECH USB 3.2 Gen2 HUB.

    Looking back, it’s crazy what kind of problems I initially encountered, what kind of failures I had and what kind of problems I subsequently encountered when I thought I was close to the finish line.

    Another interesting realization is how few DAS devices there are on the market that support Thunderbold or USB 3.1 Gen2, aside from the wickedly expensive Promise Pegasus. The G-Speed Q-DAS with Firewire and eSata interfaces that I had used for years were unfortunately taken off the market by Western Digital. The same goes for Synology, which only supports Ethernet. Only the QNap TR-002 came close to what I had in mind, although I would have preferred 4Bay devices to 2Bay devices, but it still seems to me that price and performance are right here and the devices provide pretty decent read and write performance, even if they are nowhere near the Promise Pegasus-DAS.

    Yes, you understand this correctly.

    As for Lightroom Classic and it’s subscription, at least if you stop subscribing, all modules except Develop and Maps continue to work. You do not lose your DAM. You can print, use Quick Edits in Library etc.

    C1, no idea.

    Well, this came as a surprise to me but not totally unexpected.  As mentioned it seems everyone is doing it.  We pay for a lot of things like electric, gas etc on a monthly basis.  More and more software and apps are doing the subscription model and a a business strategy it makes sense.  In my opinion this is was inevitable. A lot of folks weren’t happy with Adobe when they did it but they are still there.  I am on an Adobe model for their complete suite since I use many of their products.  They make it painless to get updates and keep up on all my machines.

    With Capture One now having iPad versions which are $5 USD a month I could see that the desktop version or a model including both was on the horizon.

    I use LR and C1 and C1 is my main go to RAW processor.  Both are excellent and LR has made some major forward leaps with their latest version.  C1 still offers a lot of flexibility in custom UI as well as many tools.  It’s probally a mater of time before they have some of the AI capability that LR has in auto masking.  In my opinion you have to be careful not to see saw too much when it comes to these things.

    For now I am doing a lot of learning in LR trying to figure out if it can fit into my workflow.
