The feels a lot like the CRAFT camera from a couple years ago...
Not sure I fully agree with this statement, I agree with what you are saying about the Hackintosh (been down that road, never again). But for 3k can you can build a similarly spec'd and equally reliable PC running Windows or Linux. Speaking as someone who reluctantly transitioned after the "Trashcan". That said, I think this is a great machine, and if I were looking to upgrade right now I would absolutely go this route. But the price point and build in and of itself is not good enough to initiate a transition. I imagine everyone who has been holding onto their old "cheese graters" will update to this quite immediately. I imagine that most of the post world that moved on from Mac will upgrade more slowly, as their current builds grow weary and need replacing. I don't see them winning over high end VFX houses with this unless they uncap GPUs and embrace NVIDIA as well. So many post houses are running custom "consumer" builds these days, running render farms built around the GTX 1080Ti (a consumer card) that it is far from laughable.
More interested in the display than the computer. Hopefully they don't lock it to their ecosystem only.
I so wish they didn't choose the HDMI Micro, they are the worst and completely unreliable for professional application.
I just got notified that I wasn't selected, what is most troubling is that the link I gave them to watch my film has not been viewed... people shouldn't waste their time and money submitting to a festival that doesn't even view all the submissions. I am not saying my film deserved to be in the festival or anything like that, but if someone is paying top tier to be considered for a top tier festival, actually viewing all submissions is probably the ethical thing to do.
