    Re: Aperture 3 or Lightroom 4

    Read that review sometime back. I agree and disagree with him, which is good I guess. I agree Lightroom 4 is awesome, no question about it. I also agree that Lightroom4 beats Aperture 3.3 - in some areas. I disagree with some of what he says about Apple intent, at least for now. Will have to wait for the next Aperture release to decide if he's right and Apple has taken Aperture as far as they really intend. Right now I kind of doubt it, unless Apple really sets a new course.

    One thing I've noticed with Aperture since converting to Nikon - it seems to do a much better job interpreting NEF files over Cannon's RAW. Can that be possible, aren't they both just raw data? Maybe it's just my imagination.

    Oh my gosh yes! Aperture is slow, but Lightroom is painfully so. With Lightroom I usually start the import and then go do something else for a while - like take a nap!

    "In general, folks that use LR will tell you to get LR. Folks that use Aperture will tell you to get Aperture. I use both and much prefer Aperture. My bias aside, Aperture is $80 via the App Store; Lightroom is $150. In which case the debate shifts to: "is Lightroom really worth$70 more than Aperture?". So, unless you have a specific need for Lightroom, the answer would be NO, it isn't worth the extra money."

    Saw this on another forum and I think that's helped me a lot.

    Amazon currently has Lightroom 4 for $114.95 which brings them a little closer. Right now I think Lightroom is worth the difference just for the len's correction and more advanced development tools. I'm just discovering how much better noise reduction is in Lightroom vs Aperture for example and the new adaptive sliders are awesome. It's no easy decision that's for sure.

    I agree, it definitely isn't an easy decision...

    It seems to swing one way then the other.

    Yes it does and I'm about to decide that if I can swing adding a second monitor to my computer Lightroom would be it for the foreseeable future. The more I understand the new feature set, the more I understand how much I can accomplish with it and also better understand the shortcomings of the current version of Aperture. Adding a second monitor would give some flexibility to better configure my workspace within Lightroom and make it less congested.

    I never want to close a door, so I would keep my options open on what Apple does with Aperture down the road. I just have a sneaking feeling Aperture 4 will knock Lightroom 4 on its arse, but I have been wrong before. Many, many, many times before actually
