The Pocket 6K with Super 35mm sensor is a $2500 upgrade compared to the much cheaper $1200 Pocket 4K. Does it do enough to justify the price increase?
Apple have been criticised in the past for being too consumer focused. Nobody can accuse them of a watered down approach when it comes to the new Mac Pro. It’s an outrageously expensive machine aimed at businesses and Hollywood. The new Mac Pro also features Afterburner, which is a FPGA hardware accelerator card exclusive to Apple. This custom hardware with over a million logic cells, handles no less than 3 streams of 8K ProRes RAW and up to 12 streams of 4K ProRes RAW.
Apple expects significant bulk orders from corporate clients with this new machine. Movie studios, companies like Adobe, Pixar and CGI firms will be top of the list.
Those hoping for a $2k-$3k machine to compete on value for money versus top of the range PCs can forget it.

Want the absolute best cheap low-end camera for 4K shooting? You’re looking at it.
I think the E-M10 III at $500 might just be the best value for money 4K camera now available, but it’s easy to lose sight of that. With the recent price race to the top, I’m starting to wonder how monied you have to be. A certain “DSLR video” blog currently features an Alpa cage on a Hasselblad H6D 100C! Anyone got a spare $40,000?
It’s official. In 4K on the 1.8x crop Canon EOS R, the new 28-70mm F2.0 turns into a 50-126mm F3.6. Shooting with that combo is a $5300 privilege, with no wide angle to speak of.
I call for the Canon manager most culpable to resign.
At least until the A7S III comes out…
