    The "Official" Canon R5, R6, and Sony A7s III thread

    For most subforums it makes sense to have separate threads, but here in the camera sub it moves super slow. So I figured creating 3 threads would just mean the same people would be hoping back and forth to threads needlessly. Anyway, that said: FULL ANNOUNCEMENT and SPECS for Canon R5 and R6...

    macOS Catalina

    Catalina has been out for a little while now. It would be interesting to hear people's user experiences if they've upgraded. I haven't yet, because I know it's going to break a lot of things just be being 64-bit only. However, Catalina is also one of the biggest jumps in terms of increased...

    Acer Nitro XV273K - 27", 4k, 144Hz, Strobing, 10-bit, 97%+ DCI-P3, HDR 400, Freesync/"Gsync"

    Where to get Vega?

    Most places are out of stock and/or super overpriced. But the used market is just even worse. I'm trying to pick up a Vega 64 or Vega FE (this isn't for gaming, it's for compute and rendering) preferably a liquid cooled variant (it's much more quiet). I might settle for a 56, just to keep the...

    When will eGPU prices come down?

    I am not a technologist, at least in the sense of knowing component pricing. However it seems to me that eGPU's are terribly overpriced for what they are. eGPU's have been available for several years now, thanks mostly to Akitio. Alienware's solution is at least a year and change old. And...

    Two Mackie Monitor Questions

    1.) Has anyone heard the newish CR5BT? I'm looking for a comparison between them and the CR4. Basically, is it worth it to drop the $100 and get CR5BT, or stick with the much less expensive CR4. Usage case is for short film editing. I might doodle in some music creation program(s), but that...

    4-5TB HD recommendation

    Purpose is for storing critical photography work (my profession). I care about reliability and cost over speed, although I will be working off of these drives, so being completely dog slow is not preferable. Looking to spend about $150 a drive. I'd like 2 total (for redundancy). So $300...
