    W/E Sunday Mar 17th

    USA but interesting...

    The Obama Administration has filed a brief in support of a Maryland photojournalist who says he was arrested and beaten after he took photographs of the police arresting two other men. The brief by the Justice Department argues that the US Constitution protects the right to photograph the actions of police officers in public places and prohibits police officers from arresting journalists for exercising those rights.

    The lawsuit arose from a June 2011 altercation in which photojournalist Mannie Garcia witnessed Montgomery County police arresting "two young Hispanic men" in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. Concerned that the police were using "excessive force," Garcia says he pulled out his camera and began photographing the scene from a distance of about 30 feet.

    Garcia says that when Officer Christopher Malouf approached him, Garcia identified himself as a member of the press held up his hands to show he was only holding a camera. But Malouf "placed Mr. Garcia in a choke hold and dragged him across the street to his police cruiser," where he "subjected him to verbal and physical abuse." According to Garcia's complaint, Malouf "forcibly dragged Mr. Garcia across the street, throwing him to the ground along the way, inflicting significant injuries." Garcia says Malouf "kicked his right foot out from under him, causing Mr. Garcia to hit his head on the police cruiser while falling to the ground."

    Garcia claims that Malouf took the video card from Garcia's camera and put it in his pocket. The card was never returned. Garcia was charged with disorderly conduct. In December 2011, a judge found Garcia not guilty. After the Montgomery County Police Department failed to discipline the officers, Garcia filed a civil rights lawsuit against Montgomery County and the police officers involved in his arrest

    Adobe to Stop Selling Boxed Copies of its Creative Suite Software, Inc. Photoshop

    Adobe to Stop Selling Boxed Copies of its Creative Suite Software, Inc. Photoshop

    Michael Zhang · Mar 13, 2013

    Adobe is pushing hard towards cloud services and digital distribution. Its Creative Cloud software subscription service appears to be on a tear, with hundreds of thousands of subscribers paying monthly fees for always-updated software that traditionally came in boxes that carry hefty price tags.

    Earlier this year, Adobe acquired portfolio service Behance in order to make the Creative Cloud more social, and now the company is making another bold move as it heads more and more toward the cloud: it will soon stop selling boxed copies of its Creative Suite software altogether.

    This coming in hand with renewed rumours about 5 new pentax bodies to be announced soon....

    Makes me hope that there's going to be a FF offering coming! - It's also getting close to april 1st again though too ...

    Methinks we won't get all 5 at once and FF won't be until late this year, but Ricoh have said FF 2013 *well almost on previous interviews

    I think 5 is a bit ambiguious.

    It's likley to be a with/without AA filter job.

    My guess:

    New Entry level job - KR replacement - Will come in rediculous colours.
    APS-C 24 Meg job with and without AA filter
    Full Frame job with and without AA Filter
    645 mk2 - No AA filter.

    That's 6 without trying, and it's only really 3 (who can really afford a digital MF job without resorting to prostitution anyway?)

    645 mk2 - No AA filter. [June?]
    The other guess is an updated mirrorless.
