I plan to do some heavy Sony testing right before Xmas and then I'll decide what to do on December 30. Most likely I would be building a system in January. At this point I'm not at all sure what it will be.
Cost is not much consideration since I keep computers for many years. I just want more PCIe lanes without all those slow cores.
The Ryzen 9 3950X will be compatible in the majority of AM4 motherboards, although in order to take advantage of the 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes on the CPU, an X570...
We use Skype and it often sucks. WebEx is much better, but I understand it costs more per seat for an organization.
I have noticed some smaller companies using the Zoom. It seems OK from the outsider perspective.
The tower is normally only a half meter away from me, so heat is an issue especially in the summer. :(
The electric company congratulated me for using significantly more power last year than similar homes. ;)
My NPS-10s units worked fine. ~43,000 images and a few videos. Four copies were made on the two devices and less than the 2TB of each SSD was used. I charged the devices every 2-3 days just to be safe (some places were 100% solar powered with lead batteries and inverters for the 220-240V)...
Most people have a 24-70 and 70-200 of some sort even if they have primes.
The problem with the ultra-wides is the perspective deteriorates rapidly when not level.
I prefer the TS/E, Nikkor PC, etc. lenses even if they are not as wide. Shift-stitching is also possible for static subjects to...
I think it depends more on the specific worker and percentage of time saved with a better CPU.
You must take into account the level or workers using them, e.g., GS6, GS9, GS12, higher? What are the fully burdened costs?
S*ny is doubling down on disappointment. The a9 II is massively underwhelming. It basically contains the same sensor as the a9 with some minor updates. Nikon would add an S to the name suffix or Canon an N. S*ny has the nerve to use II. Now there is still that giant gap between 24 and 61...
Not really. I suppose now it would be best to wait and see how many GHz can be produced with their HEDT CPUs that have a good number of PICe lanes. I keep thinking about that Windows 10 and will need it sooner rather than later.
