    Hello fellow togs.

    This thread has been suggested by another tog and thought it might be a good idea to keep all general discussion of photography in here,anything specific then we have thread for such things.

    This will be a trial for now and I will look after this thread.

    Please give you're thoughts if you want it to stay or not and let's see what happens.

    Let's try to keep this agreat thread with no bickering ect

    I will keep this as a sticky.

    Enjoy :)

    I'll start it off, has anyone used Affinity photo instead of Lightroom?

    Would anyone please have any recommendations for sites or YouTube channels that specialise in gear reviews, especially lens reviews? There are lots out there - I just want to know who is worth listening to!

    Lensrentals do some amazing reviews in their blog. Lenstip is good too.

    I have trialled AP buts its not a direct LR replacement, its more of a bridge between Photoshop and LR so Ive replaced LR with Capture One Pro. I also bought Cyberlink Photo Director Ultra which is direct LR replacement but I'm still not sure on it.

    I'm also still fully not switched over though and still converting my unsupported RAWs to .DNG so they can be edited in LR6.

    Cheers :) some of the gestures for Mac seem more fluid than LR and from a quick look on YouTube, it seems it's also easier to use that PS too.

    Will give the trial ago, can you remember what's not available through the trial?

    Looking to rent the 24mm 1.4 GM for a week, only found it in one place so far but it's not available yet, any ideas?
