I recently purchased a Sony a55 HDSLR camera. I used it this past weekend to shoot some photos as well as videos at a youth basketball game (5-9 yr old). It was inside a gym with good but not great fluorescent lighting. I used Sony's 70-200mm G lens with the a55. I had to set the iso to 3200 in order to get shutter speeds of 1/500 sec to freeze the action with an aperture of 2.8. When I got home to view the Raw + jpeg files, only the jpeg files showed in Finder. Only after I realized OS X did not support a55's raw files. Anyway, the pictures were so and so. I had more in focus shots than not, but the pics were "noisy". I imported a pic into iPhoto to see if I could clean it up. I figure I could give it a try, but I could not. I now know I will definitely need Adobe's Lightroom. Apple's Aperture takes a while to support new cameras' raw files. As for the videos, focus and tracking were spot on. The G lens SSM helped a lot. The picture quality was more than OK considering the gym lighting and MP4 recording and no I did not use the 1080 HD setting. I should have, but I forgot to set it. I am still learning. I was surprised to find out that the videos can be imported into iPhoto. It will playback in Quicktime. So now my question is which Mac Pro should I buy? Let me first say that I am not a pro or semi pro. I am more of an enthusiast. Photography is a hobby that I discovered last year. I have young children and want to take photos of them at school functions, sports, etc. I see myself in this hobby for a long time. Since I want to take pics first then video second will the previous base model mac pro (2.66 quad, 640gb HD) fulfill my needs? Or should I buy the current generation and newer mac pro (2.8 quad, 1tb HD)? The only difference I see between the two are the graphics card (nvidia vs. ati). Although video is secondary, if the slr manufacturers (canikon, sony, pentax...) future video use improves, how will the graphics card between the 2 mac pro perform if I edit the slr's hd video on the mac pro? I know the mac pro may be overkill for my needs, but I want the mac pro for its expandability. I have a 2.4 C2D 20" iMac and have about half a dozen firewire (daisy chained) and usb external enclosures for time machine, photos, movies, and MDRP's huge dvd files. My desk is a mess. I want the Mac Pro to last me at least 5 years. Will it? Anyone here have a mac pro or is it called a G5 from 4-5 years ago and still use it? Thank you. Sorry for the long rant. P.S. I figured I post here instead of the Mac Pro or Digital Photogarphy forum because members and guests look here more often.
