Recently received a Canon 1DX and fell in love. Question, do you think that buying a Retina MacBook Pro would be better for the camera or would it do just fine with a MacBook Air?
What on Earth do you mean "better for the camera"? If you want to view your images in twice the resolution, then buy the retina MBP. That's all there is to it.
Screen may be a secondary consideration.
The 1DX and Nikons D4 produce huge files (especially in RAW). The retina macbook pros higher RAM and processor capabilities would make the files easier/faster to deal with in things like Photoshop
You see I had no idea about any of that. Thanks for the replies.rMBP has far more power and would be able to process RAWs faster.
Could you explain more? I didn't mean to make it sound like I knew anything about it, in fact the reason it bothers me is cause it remains a mystery to me. Perhaps the OP could find this info useful also.Chedd. The representation is spot on due to the way they double it. My 5d2 images process very quickly.
