Dun have that Apple logo brah.
I been using Hawkeye Firefly 4K sports cameras (cheap < $100 have s7 + s8) in 1080P mode with image stabalizer for video, and edit it on a 10 year old IBM T500 with a 1600x900 1680 × 1050 screen using blender for 4 years now.
From what I read somewhere it seems the monitor needs an adaptor to work with a standard VESA arm anyway, I could be wrong though can’t remember where I read that.
It does, but as I said above, a third party will cover a simple lump of metal with two differently spaced sets of holes quickly enough.
It ain't rocket surgery. The Apple Reality Distortion Field is strong on this topic for the Apple fans.
it's not even a high end HTC. it cost him like 150 quid.
watch his videos, perfect example of content > fanciness
mustie1 is another one, pushing on 500k subs using just a canon powershot point and shoot...
but forgetting people who do minimum editing etc just make entertaining stuff, here's lee stuart and until 3 months ago, every single edit was done on a 2012 macbook pro... and that macbook pro wasn't just used for video editing, but every single print shop thing he made
his new machine isn't even an imac pro, it's a 27" imac (fully specced though so no slouch regardless)
my whole point is that to think youtubers need a mega setup is dumb
then again i guess it depends if you're a person in basement making videos yourself or if you're a content mill pumping out shitty cookie cutter buzzfeed videos
This is great, but whats even better is that if you go buy a mid range or better monitor from Dell it also does everything the apple stand does.
Nothing wrong with having a no expense spared product, but this is no such product. It's just a nice looking stand and a stupidly inflated price.
Arguments about whether such and such is the intended market doesn't change anything, it is what it is.
YouTube proves to me every day that ad-hoc content, even with the odd few who spend exponentially more on tech than "real" studios, will never make up for commercialised talent in front of a camera.
There's a reason commercial studios hire professional talent - they're actually watchable.
that's definitely not a given
what? you dont think Linus or MKBHD needed 8k RED cameras!?
or linus's 100gb ethernet, ssd based server for editing videos...because his team NEEDS 8k
but when everything is just given to you, fuck it why not
I remember the early days of justintv now twitch and esports starting to ramp up, they would get ex-players or community members to be on camera for events like IEM and dreamhacks, they were just terrible if they werent behind a keyboard, making cringy jokes, looking at the ground, just horrible.
They got it together now with semi-professionals, it's a world of difference.
Anyway back on topic weren't we talking about how mac is awesome, fit for purpose, cheap and always leading the professional industry with 'experience' it gives us?
nobody was saying that
What Linus needs is to fire Jake. That guy is such a tool.
Seems I've broken your sarcasm detector.
How the fuck that guy convinces nvidia or Intel to give him shit... Considering half of it sits in a corner in a half finished "project" that needs 3 videos about it for some reason.
USD$6K for 8C cpu, 32GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and a AMD 580 Pro
Well I read somewhere that the new upcoming Intel video card is going to use three PCI-e 8 pin connectors so that's 75 watts for the slot and 3 x 150 watts = 525 watts in total plus there are plenty of 1000-1500 watt power supplies around that used to power three and four card SLI setups and have 6 or 8 of those cables, its true what you say that it "eliminates the need for external power" but we have existing technology that already can cope with that so why re-invent the wheel?
You mean gold plate and double the price of the wheel for no functional gain.
I'll make one, $500.00 retail price to hardcore Apple fanbois.
