  • Faster than MacBook Pro 16 with i9 CPU in both multicore and single core Geekbench scores
  • Faster than base-spec Mac Pro 2019 (8 core Intel Xeon W 3.5Ghz) in single core benchmark and almost level in multicore score
  • This applies equally to MacBook Air with fanless minimum spec M1 configuration as it does the new MacBook Pro 13″ and Mac Mini with M1 CPU

Supposed “Nikon 8K” camera footage was actually shot on RED Monstro VV!

Footage from a documentary about Nikon ambassador Ami Vitale photographing Kenya was supposably shot in ProRes RAW 8K and the speculation was she shot with an as-yet unreleased Nikon Z9 with 8K output to an external recorder. Actually the documentary was shot on RED Monstro in 8K by Kiwi cinematographer Mark Toia of ZOOM Film and Television.

Meanwhile a Canon 8K camera resembling a C300 II is seen shooting props against a green screen for augmented reality demos on the new Mac Pro. This prototype has actually been shown by Canon before, most recently in 2018 at Inter BEE. The prototype has an 8K sensor and processor, but recording is external via SDI.

Indeed, Canon’s Super 35mm 8K prototype first dates back to 2015 and has been steadily developing since.
