    Interesting video: The video shows Mac Pro 7.1 w/ Vega II getting trounced by an iPad while scrubbing the HQ Canon footage. Anybody out there with W5700X and just released EOS-R5? I'm curious to know if W5700X makes a difference. In theory, I believe it should since based on the newer NAVI...

    iOS 11 & HEVC/H.265?

    So they announced that iPhone 7 could now save videos in H.265. What they didn't really mention is what happens when you send this video to someone else on a different device?
