    Thought I post all the parts in one post if someone had any questions or comments.

    Part 1, Is it a Pocket Camera?

    Part 2, Power and Storage

    Part 3, Good In Camera Audio on a Low Budget

    Part 4, Using it for a Documentary

    Part 5, Good Low Budget Lenses

    Part 6, Prores or Raw?

    Part 7, Lenses Revisited All About Vintage

    Part 8, Low Light

    Part 9, Looking at Alternative Pocket Cameras

    Outstanding videos! Not sure if my 3 year old mac book pro has enough power to handle raw files. I'd be interested in your perspective. And a video on color grading :)

    The thing is that the prores or the Raw after its been converted to prores will be much easyer for your computer to handle than for example AVCHD due to the low compression.
    The only thing that takes time for me is the conversion in Adobe Camera Raw, but I let it do that at night or when im out and about. But if I want to work fast I use Prores which has 95% of the power of raw.
    There are samples to download from the 2.5K Cinema Camera to play around with.
