Mike ... nearing your 10th ... WOW ... is web years not more than dog years? ... & yes, you wrote about your policy years ago ... but ... yours is still one of the quietest, peaceful, most relaxing web site out there ... nothing is flashing, bouncing, attention demanding ... keep it going for a second ten www.santas
comparing the two M7 images: the top one has more clarity, more detail, appears sharper to the eye, is more relaxing to look at ... but ... that is only in comparison ... if the top image weren't there the bottom image would be fine (although it would sell the camera) ... but in comparison it's a weak image ... you asked !!!

Mike or Ctein: something I have been curious about but have not seen mentioned anywhere is if various SD cards offer better download speeds? That is, when the card is slotted in the MacBook will the images transfer at different rates for different cards? Then there is the iPad which seems to take forever to just load the preview from a 32gig SD! I haven't really noticed a camera slow down since the Kodak DCS760 would jam up when auto bracketing was turned on and it would pause after 5 frames. Just curious. Oh ... and nice testing!
nice flow in a nice article ... particularly interest in the Soylent mention ... please keep us informed ... especially what the stuff tastes like ... looked into it before a road trip a month ago but didn't really have the time so settled on Soy Protein Shakes & Greek Yogurt (with a meal now & then) ... may sound strange but am feeling much better ... [now, its nearly time to start eating doughnuts for that extra seasonal weight] keep up the good work

Mike: as other's have said, this is a good computer but it is the basic model. We currently have an upgraded version running in the Santa Workshop with more RAM, a larger hard drive, 2 2TB G-Drives, and an Apple 27 inch Cinema Display hanging off it. With this setup it runs Aperture teathered to a Nikon D5100 & prints to the Epson 1430 via Pages. It doesn't hang or bog down. The nice thing is that since it is an Air it can be unplugged at night & taken home if needed. So, if you want to travel with your computer an Air is great 'cause you can plug everything in & it becomes a desktop unit. If you don't need it for travel there is always the iMac or Mini.

Ctein: you mentioned the iPad ... Have you looked into iPhoto for iOS ? ... Looks real sharp on the iPod (2nd Gen) [that's the new proper Apple talk] ... but there is perhaps something in the RAW file handling ... to quote directly from the in app help: "NOTE: If you import RAW photos into your device, you can view them in iPhoto, but only the embedded JPEG file in each RAW file is displayed. The resolution of the embedded JPEG file depends on your camera. In iPhoto, RAW-format photos have a RAW label." ... Talk about something which needs to be digested !!!?!!! Oh ... And ... Thanks for another interesting Post ... Non Photographic Posts are of varying intereset as are other parts of life .......
