Maybe the imminent Nikon D6 Had a bearing on the D5 price drop, but I can’t help but feel the announcement of the Sony A9 II was much more relevant
Why, after all this time, do people still post to Vimeo? I stopped going there, but I figure it must have improved if industry types use it. But no!The videos just sputter along, start and stop, and I end up having to refresh the page....
1) Well, it supports HDR broadcast standard developed jointly between the BBC and Japanese national broadcaster NHK. I'm guessing that's an alternative to Dolby Vision
2) Yes, but some will require the new, very expensive V90 cards

I use Astropad extensively when editing photos, because you can mask, shade and select with great accuracy. It's my poor man's Cintiq, but it's bloody brilliant. I haven't used it for video editing yet because I don't need to do masking or any fine-grained control, so keyboard shortcuts are sufficient.
(As an aside, I did get Pro Cut X after reading about it on NFS. It's dreadful)
Apple use to innovate, now they just copy everyone else's ideas
