Incredibly efficient while still simple to use. Indeed, some months ago I spent quite a time trying everything around, but within a lower price range: I converged to PanoEdit and bought it in spite of its lock to apple store. Then, I pushed it with less-than-perfect series of photos (among which various taken handheld, with different focals…) and of course it failed, also creating ghosts in difficult cases (say, a beach, waves not being at the same places between two shots). Then I gave AutoPano a try, on the demo version. Everything worked perfectly, including in these old cases where you won't ever go back to that location and hadn't the tripod and failed it all. Autopano is a lifesaver, and I must say some of its extra features ("little planet" views…) are very worth too. So yes it's costly, and indeed in the beginning I myself thought with so many contenders five times cheaper there was just no reason even to try it. Well. Try it by yourself, you'll see. To me, a lifesaver. And fun to use with that.
While I use it only on macintoshes, I bought it very long ago, merely to support them, and have been extremely satisfied continuously since then!
Fast, efficient, adjustable, with a very good course movie on the support website and lots of witty details, all of this free, open source and multi platform: honestly, a dream come true. Let's hope the developergot a good career...
does exactly what it says; allows me to add symlinks from important docs to a dropbox folder without 'obeying dropbox architecture', for instance… (OTOH OwnCloud does not resolves symlinks, alas) Works perfectly on OSX 10.8 and also can be installed 'just for this user' inside the user's Library's Services folder.
I use version 0.1, which is already quite cool (and was free). The underlying formal math "motor" behind it is the open source XCAS development, http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/giac.html , whis does has an OSX implementation, but not as a fast menu item ;-) Indeed I'm considering paying now.
This new version on Sept. 013 works perfectly on my OSX10.8 and features every action trigger I could dream of :)
Handling thousands of mails on more than a dozen accounts with the only bayesian filter that beats Apple's own (and started earlier than them*), Powermail has been my baseline for years. Once that I was setting a linux emailer unproperly and its first connection erased more than 1000 mails from a server where I did want to leave them, I connected through IMAP with Powermail and re-uploaded everything, in a single pass. I just never found a software as powerful than Powermail. (*) Powermail search capacity also is instant among Gbytes of mails (and compatible with Spotlight, of course)
Works as announced with a D5200 with the exception I just can't trigger Live View...
Seems to work with a D5200 although recuperating the picture I just triggered isn't clear to me (I do get the previous pics in the cam)
Works as announced on my D5200, and better than most others...
