5 Sony Camera Issues (RARELY Mentioned)

5 Sony Camera Issues (RARELY Mentioned)
5 Sony Camera Issues (RARELY Mentioned)

Hey, guys, We’re going to talk about five issues or problems that I have with Sony cameras. Now, you guys know that I really like my Sony cameras. They are my main moneymakers, but some of these things just don’t make sense.

Now, I’m also going to make article on the five kind of best things that I really enjoy about Sony cameras that people don’t often mention.

So make sure you guys hit that subscribe button. And if you’re already subscribed, make sure you get enablers notifications, see as you’ll miss out on that article.

Now, mainly going to talk about article things since this channel is focused on filmmaking.

But for you photographers that clicked on this article, I’ma give you guys two bonus things at the start of this article before going into my five issues. The first issue for the photographers out there is that the duel card slots in the A7 are three and then a nine are not the same speed.

Now, I’m glad that Sony is finally putting in dual card slots in their high end, expensive bodies. But with that said, one of them is much slower than the other.

So if you’re gonna be maxing out your buffer and having to wait for it to clear, you’re going to have to wait more than twice as long if you’re doing backup recording. So you’re taking a photo. It’s going to save them to both card slots.

That way you have a backup just in case one of your SD cards goes out.

So that is really unfortunate because if you have a full buffer, instead of waiting 30 to 35 seconds for it to clear, you have to wait over a minute long. Now, that also means if you’re gonna be doing lots of photos in a series at the buffer is going to fill a faster because it takes longer for those images to get recorded to the card slots. So that is very unfortunate.

The second thing for you photographers is that so many does not offer a medium or a small size raw option.

So if you’re shooting on a High-Resolution camera like that, a seven hour two or a seven hour three, you’re forced to shoot with 42 megapixels if you want the flexibility of RA.

Now, I come from a cannon background where I shot with Cannon full frame cameras for wedding photography for years. And I love the option to drop down to medium raw. So if I was going down doing some photos, I didn’t need the full resolution.

I wanted to save on space. I was able to drop down and still have the flexibility of RA. But now with the Sony cameras that are really high resolution.

It’d be great to have that option to just go down a 24 megapixel have the camera just oversampled the forty two megapixel into a smaller size. So you still have the flexibility, but you don’t have to deal with the extra storage space and it’s easier on your computer to edit. So I really wish Sony would implement this.

Now, let’s move on to article. I give you guys five issues that I have with the Sony cameras to start off.

No one has been bugging me for a long while now. And that’s when you’re playing back your files. You’re looking at the video clips that you recorded. You don’t get the full framing or the shots when you’re flipping through clips to see which ones to select.

You get this kind of film reel icon so you don’t only see what the framing is or the shot looked like, which is frustrating if you want to match up from a previous framing.

On top of that, you can’t even see the clip length. When you’re looking at the clips. So you have to do is have to start playing it and like scroll through the whole clip to see if that one was like a one minute take or a five minute take.

So if you work with lots of video files like I do, you do comparisons with cameras.

Stuff like that. This can really get frustrating. The second thing has got to do with autofocus.

But one thing they don’t have is a autofocus single, something where the camera will focus one time and they’ll keep that focus without continuously changing and looking at the background.

So Panasonic does this in a really good way, where you select the HFS, you can tap what you want and focus or press on the shutter. It’ll get in focus. And that’s set your set on the Sony as you go into continuous. You wait for it to lock on a focus and you have to switch it to manual focus and then go back and forth.

Now, at the end of the world. But if you’re somebody that shoots interviews or other shots where you want to set the focus once with autofocus, which is really quick to do so, and then you want it to not change unless you tell it to change.

That is really frustrating. Now, the third thing has got to do with manual focusing in the rear LCD display.

This has gotten better with a seminar three and a nine, but it’s still not great when you’re in the video mode and you’re wanting a manual focus. The four key output, what you’re seeing on the rear LCD screen is quite soft and it makes it difficult to see exactly what’s in focus.

It may seem like you’re in focus perfectly on eyes, but you’re slightly back focused or forward focused, especially if you’re shooting with a shallow depth of field. Now, the weird thing is if you switch over to the manual photo mode, the detail is much better.

It’s a huge difference. You can easily see what’s in focus. Even if you’re shooting on a eighty five F one point eight, as soon as you go into the video setting, it gets much softer.

This has got to do with how the camera is sampling the image and how much data it’s sending to the real LCD. Maybe it does have enough processing power or maybe they’re just using the same algorithm as they used to do before.

But for example, on my old Samsung Anex ones, which came out like three years ago or even more than three years ago now, the image was super detailed as soon as you go into the video mode.

It actually got more detailed than the photo mode, which was great because you never had to punch in to set manual focus.

You could see exactly what’s in focus. Another camera’s eye cannons are Panasonic’s. It stays roughly the same, but in the Sunnis, it gets worse, which is definitely frustrating. Number four is using an external monitor when you’re shooting and Fourcade.

These newer Sony cameras have touch screens with very good autofocus.

And that gives you the ability to tap on an object and have the camera smoothly and accurately focus on it. But if you’re shooting in four K with an external monitor like the excellent small HD focus, as soon as you hit that record button, you don’t get an image on the rear.

LCD of the camera goes black while you still have all the icons in your recording clip length and stuff like that. Everything else is dark and you have to just go off of the external monitor. And that could be fine.

But if you do want to make use of that touch to focus option, you’re going to be tapping on a completely dark display. Try to guess what you’re trying to focus on.

Now, the last issue may not be a big deal to you, depending on how much cameras you shoot with and how much Karzi use per shoot. But when I go to shoot a wedding or some other kind of larger shoot, it’s really frustrating that each time you put in a new SD card in the camera, it resets the numbering.

So you start with a zero zero one and you go to zero zero two.

So when I go to a wedding and I have four different cameras and I’m using multiple as decoys, I come back and I have tons of the same file names for clips that were shot at different times on different cameras. And you go to try to sync all that together.

You can really get some issues with different clips not lining up properly or the program re linking to other clips.

It just makes it frustrating to organize something where other cameras will start at zero zero one and they can go all the way up to like a thousand. Some can even go up higher than that, where you can customize how the camera does this.

So if you’re somebody that shoots a lot or likes to switch out your SD cards, this can definitely be frustrating. All right.

So those are my top five things that really kind of bug me with Sony cameras. If you have something else that’s frustrating, you go ahead and type it down in the comments section below.

I’d love to hear your guys opinions if you have something to work around some of these issues. Definitely. Let me know as well. On top of that, make sure you guys are subscribed and have those notifications enabled for my top five things I love about Sony cameras that people don’t often talk about.

16 inch MacBook Pro vs iMac Pro – Video Editing Comparison

16 inch MacBook Pro vs iMac Pro - Video Editing Comparison
16 inch MacBook Pro vs iMac Pro - Video Editing Comparison

Hey, guys,I’m going to be doing this article a little bit different from the other ones that I have done since we have the new 16 inch MacBook pros that have better cooling. They have the ability to have more ram.

And now we have graphics cards that are more powerful with less heat, more capabilities.

It’s a newer generation, seven nanometers, and they have eight gigs of video memory. A lot of you guys are asking how it compares to the iMac pro. And if you can replace your Mac Pro with a MacBook Pro.

Now, the last time I did this article, it was just over a year ago and I tested out the latest MacBook Pro back then, which was a six core that was limited to four gigabytes of video memory.

So obviously we had a lot of thermal constraints and now we have new graphics and then most new programs. Final cut, premier, pro, anti munchers, all have all been updated.

And there’s been some major improvements with more use of the graphics card. So what’s going to happen this time around? Well, I’m going to be showing you guys the results as far as video editing.

But first, quickly, let’s look at a few benchmarks using the latest geek bench five. And here, even though the new Aikau does run faster than before, the pro has a more thermal headroom. So, yes, it does perform faster.

Now, same thing with graphics. This new graphics card is catching up to the graphics in the IMAX pro.

I have the Vega 56 in this one, but that is still a ways ahead.

Now that graphics card uses HBL to memory, the new one uses slower memory. So that might make a difference in some cases. And this new graphics card has better encoding options. But those are not yet utilized. We’ll talk about that a little bit later on in the article.

Now, the first thing that I want to test out as far as actual video editing is Bruce X and final cut. And here I was shocked that the new graphics card Venza Bruce X test faster. I don’t know why it really doesn’t make sense.

This test really is just pushing the graphics and it’s all animations and titles, stuff like that.

And I don’t know, but it’s certainly not a fluke and it’s not really got to be reflected going on further in the article. Now the next thing, a test it is for all of you guys who edit black magic raw. How well can these machines process black magic raw?

Well, the new MacBook Pro has no issues. The C.P.U has been improved over the past one.

And the graphics card can playback achy video at fifty five frames per second. At least twelve to one compression. But that is no match for the Mac Pro, which plays back at, I believe, over 100 frames per second. You guys to see my results right here.

None of them have issues with playing back six K. So it really doesn’t matter.

But of course, if you want to stock a bunch of effects, you do have a lot more headroom with the Veiga 56 graphics. Now I want to do is article a little bit differently instead of going over each and every kind of test.

I want to just show you guys the charts and let you know where you’ll notice a difference between I’m at Pro in the macro, pro and where you want. That way you can make a decision based on if the performance is good enough, not just what the best performance is.

But before I show you guys that, let me give a big shout out to our sponsor, Skillshare.

But go ahead and put up these charts on screen. I’m gonna leave them up for longer than usual just so you guys could take a look at the speed differences.

Yes, there are some, but I’ll let you guys know that if you’re somebody that wants the portability, you’re afraid of leaving your mark where you want to choose, you want good performance, but you’re not sure if you should sacrifice performance and get the macro pro do it for regular editing with Asia two six, four or eight shot, two, six, five, eight or 10 bits.

The performance of the timeline is almost the scene. Two years ago, the map pros had four core processors.

They had only sixteen gigs, ram much weaker graphics and I’m at Pro absolutely smoked it. Even just a year ago in the timeline, the my night pro was quite a bit faster, but because of the software updates and in premier pro, the performance differences huge from just a year ago.

You’re gonna have a great experience with either one of these as long as you’re not stacking five Lutts you’re doing qualifiers, you’re doing a bunch of animations, a superheavy stuff.

Yes, I’m Ibro will come up ahead. But for normal Mitry colors, you’re doing a couple. Lutts There’s not that big of a difference. And in the timeline. MacBook Pro has no issues whatsoever. At least if you have a 32 gig, a video of RAM and the eight gig video card now in Premier Pro, we have the biggest difference. The Mac A is pretty much maxed out.

If you’re playing back a full resolution and you’re playing back with a couple, let’s film grain applied is simply is back at 30. Yes, but that’s playing back at full resolution.

And you really need to do that on a laptop. You can set it down to half and it looks really good. So for this kind of editing, if you’re on the fence, I would say go with the MacBook Pro, get a high spec model. You are going to be happy now where there’s little bit bigger difference is for Rock Codex.

We still have a huge improvement with the macro compared to previous years with the new software and final CA can actually play back at about 50 frames per second with a lot and film gain applied our full resolution.

Dymock pro plays back at a full 60. So if you’re going to multicam work, if youre going to stock lots of color corrections and qualifiers, different effects and titles with that footage, yes, you’re gonna have a better result.

But most people at a 24 or 30 frames per second footage in here, even in premier pro at half resolution, the macro can do a great job and also individually resolve.

If you lower down your timeline playback, it’s gonna do a fantastic job.

And I didn’t think I would say this, but even for people to do raw footage other than red raw, which still plays back pretty poorly and especially in final cut, the macro approach really kind of starts to rival not as fast, but it is actually doable.

Whereas a year two years ago, I would definitely say spend the extra money if you’re working with raw footage and go for Dymock Pro.

Now, not only that, but soon we’re gonna have a metal based red rock so that it can be debated with your graphics card. And then we’re gonna have a pretty big improvement in the microprobe. We’ll be able to play back maybe even AK rha with the MacBook Pro, but at least six K raw. And there we’re gonna have less difference.

And another benefit of this new MacBook Pro is the fact that it can encode 10 bit add up to fourteen ninety frames per second HDR and that’s not enabled yet and it takes much longer right now.

But as we go into the future, when the programs are gonna start utilizing this new encoder in the graphics card, the the actual encoding of HDR footage is gonna be much faster than the iMac pro because the Veigar graphics does not have that built in.

So overall, yes, I’m I pro is faster as more headroom, but the Mac repro can’t get the job done for most people.

Now that the software has been updated and we have 32 gigs ram better cooling and eight gigs of video memory, this is the closest that I have seen these machines ever, so I would not hesitate. If you can use the portability, I would say it is much more worth it than getting a little bit more performance from an IMAX pro.

Thank you guys for watching. If you want to see this Mac Pro Pro compared to the five CAMAC Mac, the latest one and maybe in the previous generation, let me know down in the comment section below, the regular Mac is less expensive and it’s actually slightly powerful than I’m a pro in some tests.

And I’m also going to compare this macro to the 2015 that a lot of you guys have been sticking around with.

5 things I LOVE about Sony Cameras (RARELY Mentioned)

5 things I LOVE about Sony Cameras (RARELY Mentioned)
5 things I LOVE about Sony Cameras (RARELY Mentioned)

Hey, guys,I’m going to talk about five things that I really like about Sony cameras that don’t often get mentioned now along with this article.

I actually made one talking about five issues or problems that I have with Sony cameras that are often talked about. So stay until the end of this article. There’s gonna be a car that you guys can click to check that one out as well.

The first thing on my list is the ability to setup custom button configurations for photo and video. So on the video side, I have it set to punch in and out between APEC and full frame mode. One button does my audio levels and other one instantly switches between autofocus and manual focus.

Another one will zoom in if I want to like clear image zoom.

So I have all these settings for video. But then if I want to go out and shoot stills, I can have a full configuration for stills.

So I can make use of all those buttons and not waste any compared to other cameras where if I set function one of my G.H. five two audio levels when I go out and shoot photos, that button is completely wasted.

So, so convenient. How this and I hope all cameras going forward, how this option.

The second thing on my list is the ability to shoot for K and 60 megabits per second. Now I know in this day and age everybody wants a really high bit rates to take up a lot of card space. They want 10 bit, 400 megabits per second.

But there are certain scenarios where you really don’t need that bitrate, for example, somebody talking and not really a lot of movement or details going on in the shot.

I mean, this set has a little bit of detail in the background, but say you’re recording like a conference where you have a guy just standing there talking with a plain background and you’re recording for long periods of time.

It’s nice to be able to cut down to 60. You’re not going to get any noticeable detail loss or anything like that because there’s barely any detail in the scene.

And you can save almost half of the card space and make your cards go a lot longer, especially if you’re doing a lot of sniper recording harddrive space. SSD space gets saved as well.

So I definitely appreciate that. Option number three on our list is the ability to punch in a while. You are according to check your focus. Now, it is true that the rear LCD aren’t very detailed.

You don’t get a very detailed image compared to shooting photo. And I talk about that in my five downsizer issues with the Sony cameras, but it is still nice to be able to punch in while you’re recording and make sure that your shot is in focus.

Most cameras have that ability before you hit the record button. But as soon as you start recording, that option is gone. So I definitely appreciate that.

Number four is the S and Q setting. So this allows you to record slow motion and quick motion. So if you set it up to record one frames per second into an ATP, you can have like a 20 minute video turn into something that’s, I don’t know, about one minute long, basically like a time lapse in camera. And on the others end the slow motion aspect.

You can do, let’s say 120 F. Yes. And then the camera will conform it or slow it down to 30.

So the slow motion is already done in camera. You don’t have to do it yourself. Now, the great thing about this is since it’s a separate setting on a dial, you can be recording for key video.

And then also you want to grab something in slow motion. Flip the dial to the S and you setting in as long as you have a preset up to what you want.

Bam, you can record in slow motion. Flip the delegate and you’re back to shooting for K, which is so convenient compared to the Panasonic’s where you have to go for the menu. Go from Fourcade to 10. Go into the variable frame rate option. Enabled that and then go back to record.

Now on top of that, what Sony allows you to do is you can have the essence, you setting for having the camera slow down your video clips for you, but you can also record 120 frames per second in real time, meaning it’s not slow down ahead of time and you still retain all of your audio.

So that way you can be recording the 10 ATP and you just slow down the portions you want later and post and still have the audio to work with, which is really great.

That’s something that Panasonic’s don’t offer. If you’re recording above 10 ATP at 60, you lose all your audio.

It’s pretty slow down. And you also don’t get autofocus where the Sony retains the audio focusing ability. So Sony is giving us a lot of options. They’re making it really quick and convenient to switch between four K and then like slow motion.

So I really appreciate that. Now, number five, the last thing on my list is the clear image zoom. Now, this has been so convenient in my shooting because it just give you so much flexibility. Now, right now, I’m shooting with a 73 and I switched over to a twenty eight millimeter F2 lens.

That’s why you guys are seeing a wider shot here and the camera’s able to go between the full frame and APRC mode.

Now, I can’t do that while you’re recording, but we can do is use clear image, which basically gives you flexibility to go from one times, which is full frame all the way to one point five in a variety of steps. So mean I have a dream.

Go ahead and use a clear image. Zoom. Did you go to one point five now?

So this is basically the APC crop. We’re actually pi getting slightly better detail than we were in the full frame mode because it’s using more data from the sensor. So if you’re shooting in full frame and also you need to get a bit closer, you can’t switch your lens.

You can hit the button and zoom in, basically, and you’re not losing any detail. Now, on top of that, if you’re shooting already in the APC crop. So here we are in APRC mode in our 28 millimeter full frame lens is now roughly 42 millimeters long. So we have like an additional focal length. Now, what we could do is enable to clear image zoom.

Go ahead and do that and just do it slowly this time. And we have steps from one point one, one point two. One point three. One point four.

All the way to one point five. And now using that, the framings changing.

And now we have roughly a sixty three millimeter lens. So one lens gives us a variety of focal length. And as long as you’re not shooting a really bad lighting conditions, the quality is still very good. So it’s great to have this flexibility.

And if you’re shooting like that on a a sixty three hundred or a sixty five hundred, since that’s using 6k downsampling, you can go up to two times clear image zoom. So if you have a 50, it’s going to turn into a 100. And anywhere in between. Now some other cameras like the G.H. five will give you an teleco converter option of one point four, but you’re limited to one point four.

And you have to do it beforehand. Here, while we’re recording, we can zoom in, zoom out.

If you need to get a little tighter, you have the ability and it just really gives your prime lens is so much more flexibility than you had before. Now, another great thing with a clear museum is if you have a lens that can’t get very close to an object, you want to get kind of a kind of like a macro shot, but you’re limited to, say, two feet, minimum focusing distance.

You can stay at that two feet and then enable the clear Majuba. And that’s gonna bring you a lot closer.

The article is going to seem like you’re a lot closer to the object. So you can kind of fake macro shots with this as well. All right, guys, so hopefully you enjoy this article.

Sony A6400’s BEST New Feature (not flip screen)

Sony A6400's BEST New Feature (not flip screen)
Sony A6400's BEST New Feature (not flip screen)

Hey, guys, In San Diego at Sonis Press event for the new A16 400 that was just announced, as you guys know, I was really hoping for an A7 less three, which we didn’t get.

But with that said, this thing is packing a lot of features and a lot of punch. And there’s a couple things that are really standing out there, really impressive, even though this is kind of mid-level APC camera.

Now, just, you know, this is my first impressions with this camera.

I’m going to be here for a couple more days shooting this camera using and a bunch of scenarios. So if you want to see my full detailed review for video shooters, make sure he gets hit that subscribe then and enable those notifications.

Now, the biggest standout feature of the A sixty four hundred, something we’ve been asking for a long time is the ability to have a way upstream for of you bloggers out there.

This helps a ton. And in this situation, missioning myself may now be so helpful.

Jarvis screen that flips up on my A7 three or even better flips to the side. So we don’t have a screen that flips to the side, but it does flip up and we still have it easy.

A lot of people were thinking that this is going to get removed on this camera just like a 50 100. We still do have the E the app. And now, of course, if you do put a microphone on Top Gear, your screen will be blocked. That is a big downside with having a screen that flips up. That’s when my preference is for it to flip out to the side.

And before I take you long to go shooting with you, there’s a couple more things that I want to mention.

First off, this thing is has the same processor as the Sony, a nine, their flagship camera in a mid-level APC camera. What that means is going to have a ton of processing power for the four value and for the new real time auto focusing tracking.

Now, Sony is finally catching up and giving us a good, usable solution for being able to just touch on the screen and tracking subjects just like you can with canon cameras and with other cameras.

So, yes, the A sixty four hundred is missing IBIS. And that is a disappointment, especially for bloggers, because having that extra stabilization is really nice. But there’s a couple of really standout features that put it for me personally above the A sixty five hundred. I’ll talk about that in just a second. But first, let’s go to some shooting.

Now, right off the bat, I have one doesn’t know yet know about. And another thing that’s not as good now as far as a touch autofocus thing for a video where you just touch just like on a canon camera that does work in Fourcade.

But as soon as you switch to 120 frames per second and 10 ATP, that would be great to be able to touch on your subject, especially for sports and track them. That mode is on available.

Now, on the flip side, I think the biggest deal here is that we no longer have dimming of the screen. That’s like my biggest downside of the a sixty three hundreds of a sixty five hundred.

Would you shoot forty or need to be 120 to screen with them and be almost unbeatable outside. And now Sony has managed to fix that, even though we do have the same batteries inside here, the same small little batteries, they didn’t change it.

So the screen along is dense and it is quite right. So that is some fantastic news for everybody is shooting video outdoors.

So let’s test out the touch autofocus thing. I switch lenses here a little bit closer.

I want to touch on the subject and you go ahead. Do your thing. No, no. Go ahead. Go ahead. The perfect test. So here I have kind of some branches in the way. The tap on her face. And it’s picking it up, actually picking up our eye and tracking it. Even though some branches here are getting in the shot, it’s not having a problem.

OK. I’m going to bounce off you and did not evoke such as to zoomed all the way in on the face. OK, so let’s do another test here. I’m going to just track an object instead of a face here.

So here you go, my camera. Well, you guys are seeing is with a black background. It’s all black, just kind of blending in here, as you guys can see. It’s still picking it up and doing a great job thing on that. I’ll be testing this out more in the next couple of days. So make sure you guys are subscribed to the full review.

All right, guys, I’m going to wrap up my hands on a first look with the A sixty four hundred.

It’s going to be a very capable camera. I think it’s going to sell really well, especially with the flip screen. Now, I do wish it was towards the side.

But at least we have this we of a Mike Jack. And the biggest improvement, I think the biggest thing for me is that the screen doesn’t dim and that is huge.

If you’ve used the A sixty three or the A sixty five hundred. So personally I would choose this over even a sixty five hundred, even though it does set that we don’t have ibis in here, but a lot of the lenses do have stabilization built in.

And have this unifications that able to if he gets one check in my whole detailed review that I’m going to be doing with this camera shooting everything on it.

Why do I WASTE money on Apple

Why do I WASTE money on Apple
Why do I WASTE money on Apple

Hey, guys, Welcome to Max Talks. Episode two, the show where I talk and I don’t spend hours upon hours editing the article. So it’s all but more simple, a little bit more opinionated. So welcome.

So today we’re gonna talk about why I waste so much money on Apple products. Now, let me rephrase a couple things before I get into it. I don’t think I waste my money.

I think it’s fairly well spent. And not all those Apple products are mine and maybe half of them I’ve paid for or a little bit less.

Some of them are something I’ve sold already and then I’ve borrowed.

Some of the stuff is from Apple Insider. So not many of you guys know, but we actually create some content for a company called Apple Insider. It’s a Web site that’s been around since about nineteen ninety seven.

They’re very, very popular and they recently launched a YouTube channel and they contract us out to make videos. So some of the stuff you see here is completely there is just sent in so that we could do article on it. Actually, a decent amount of the stuff you guys saw. Now, those videos, if you guys one go check them out, you can, but they’re not all my opinion.

Majority of it is scripted by other writers, journalists. I’m either doing the voice over and editing and shooting some B roll and shots for some of the stuff.

I’m not even not even my footage. We’re just taking their footage and their scripts and putting the stuff together for them. Some of the stuff is my opinion. Like if you’ve seen some stuff on, like the Mac books and stuff like that, where clearly it seems like my style of a video that is more my opinion.

So just be aware of that if you go check out their content.

So it’s just one of the companies that we work with as a video production company to basically bring an income for ourselves and be able to pay ourselves and our bills and everything like that. So that is some of their stuff.

Now, let’s get into the video. So why do I spend so much money in Apple products? So there’s a few different reasons. The first reason being they create some good products.

So I know not a lot of people agree with that. It’s very controversial. A lot of people think it’s overpriced and technically it is more expensive. I would definitely not agree by that. And I don’t know why people are shocked about that.

It’s always been the case. Apple products have always been more expensive.

And if you’re just looking at spec sheet, they’re overpriced. It’s it’s that’s not a shocker. And they’re always been controversial.

Getting rid of ports, getting rid of c.D drives, getting the floppy.

They’ve always been the first to get rid of stuff. It always makes people upset. But a couple of years later, the whole market shifts a little bit and everybody loves it because, well, in two years, you have four Thunderbird, three ports instead of one on your computer.

And so you could do a lot more with it. So on top of that, they create some great working products and enjoyable products is the first kind of reason I switched over from Premier Pro and from Windows computers to Apple devices about two and a half years ago, something like that.

Before then, I use Premier Pro for a very long time and use Windows.

Computers actually built my first Windows computer when I was nine and I’ve built pretty close to 30, probably over 30 computers for family members, friends. Different people asked me to build it for myself.

And so I know Windows really well. I know premier pro well.

And the reason I switched over is just because of optimization. This is something Apple is so incredibly good at. They’re choosing their own hardware.

They make some of their own software, the operating system and final cut, and they just put everything together and it works so, so well. My biggest frustration was when I built a computer that was over three grand, six core watercoolers overclocked the best graphics card that was available and the premier pro was just really, really slow.

So on the on the actual software side, final cut is a huge reason why I spend money on Macs specifically because it could actually take a machine like this. Twenty four hundred dollars.

It’s a laptop with a mobile graphics card, mobile C.P.U, and it can edit for key video faster and more efficiently than spending twenty four hundred dollars on a Windows P.c that has, you know, twice as better specs were a lot more powerful, but the software is not efficient.

So with final cut, for example, stabilization, which is something we do so often, it could stabilize for about twenty five seconds. Twenty six seconds.

A twenty second Fourcade clip, which, unlike a eight core Titan graphics card, will take about three minutes using Adobe Premiere Pro.

Of course, the inefficiencies aren’t with everything and premier pro, but a lot of it is there.

It’s just a utilizes the graphics card all the way, the processor all the way in. That’s how you get as much slower spec sheet computer and you’re editing faster. And if you own a video production company and you’re doing this for a living. That matters.

If something takes you less time, you’re making more money or spending less money doing so. And so that’s just one huge reason as final cut. I love it. I still use premier pro. In fact, I’m still paying right now. I’m paying for premier pro monthly. Encryption and at times we do use it for the test. We use it. And sometimes if I’m doing a good collaboration project with somebody who’s requite, who uses premier, pro will use it, too.

But I love final cut for those reasons. There’s other things in the software, like the magnetic timeline that helps you edit faster if you’re using titles. There’s so much better than Premier Pro. So that’s one reason.

Now, on the hardware side of things, Speciale isn’t always everything.

If you’re looking just at the spec sheet and then you compare that to, say, a Dell Express fifteen or like a razorblade 14 with a 10 60. And I’m doing a comparison between these computers and the newest MacBook Pro, it seems like, wow, this Apple computer has worst specs and it costs more money.

What is the deal? It’s so overpriced. But then you’re looking at other things like, well, how well does the screen work?

The Dell Express screen is nice, but this screen is super bright. It’s glossy. It’s very sharp.

Great contrast. And Apple has been caring about a lot of these areas that don’t really show up on a spec sheet as much when you’re looking at processor graphics card, RAM, stuff like that. How about the trackpad? It’s huge, but not only is a huge it just works so well in Apple.

Computers have always had the best track pads. It’s enjoyable to use and you can actually add it on this without using a mouse if you need to. And it works well.

How about the speakers? They’re so loud, they sound so good compared to the other two computers, which are either they sound good but way too quiet or are decent, loud.

And it’s not as loud as this, but sound much, much worse. So there’s a lot of things that Apple cares about, which is not only the spec sheet, but actual daily usability and enjoyment of the machine.

That makes a big difference. You’re not only buying a spec sheet unless it’s all really you care about, but if you’re using it all the time, it makes you just appreciate you use the product more. And as well as all the optimizations like Mac OS, it works really well.

Of course, it has its own glitches and stuff like that, but it’s much less than Windows machines. For example, this machine, I just booted it up, right. And I set it up. There’s driver crashes. I need to update those. And to my right, click doesn’t work in Windows 10 is, I would say, the best Windows operating system to date.

And then also and I do the updates, my right click works, but my start in my search buttons don’t work.

So less glitches because Apple is controlling a lot more of it. And for example, on the iPhones, on on these for a long time, they only had DUKER processors compared to like faster quad core processors and a cord for eight core processors.

But in just usability, it’d be faster opening apps, smoothness crashes, stuff like that.

And then also on Benchmark’s a Geek Bench, it would still be taking out all the Android devices because Apple is doing the hardware and the software and it works so well. So those are really the biggest reasons why I spend my money on Apple products.

I don’t always agree with all their choices, all their decisions, but in general they make some great products. And another thing is the resale value is so much better.

So this computer is twenty four hundred for this spec sheet and they can literally have it for a year and maybe sell it for about twenty one hundred used. So the resale value is just ridiculously well and they last for the most part they last better as well.

So if you look on your local Craigslist, Jimmy stuff from like 2006 MacBook pros or a different power Macs that are still selling and people are still buying them and they’re not one hundred dollars for five, six hundred dollars compared to a Windows machine.

This is one of the best resale value for Windows machines because it’s a razor.

It’s a great quality. A lot of people want to buy these, but something like this, you would buy it for two grand and then maybe after a year you can sell it for maybe Malev. One hundred. Twelve hundred. And that’s good for a Windows machine.

A lot of times you’ll buy something for a thousand bucks and six months later for five hundred. Nobody wants to buy it. So the resale value is really good.

So if you’re not only looking at that initial price tag, you’re also thinking about what will I do a year or two from now or three or four when I’m ready to sell it?

Do I just have to just get rid of it donated or can actually get some of my money back?

That’s another thing that you have to consider. So let me know what you guys think about this video. Hopefully it makes it clear why I spend my money and why I think it’s worth spending on certain Apple products.

Let me know if you guys have any examples of why you spend money on Apple products or if you don’t agree, if you think all of this just doesn’t make any sense. Let me know why you don’t spend your money on Apple products. I’d love to hear you guys as opinions.

You so think he gets from watching. You guys can hit that subscribe button if you guys want to see the comparison of these two really nice machines compared to the latest MacBook pros as well.

And I’m want to link both of these in the description. I linked the Mac book as well. If you guys gonna to go check those out, the spec sheets and stuff like that, what’s going to be interview?
