    Suggesting people to shell out $16k - $22k to manage their $30k camera footage then using nonsensical rhetoric to cover it. Also, cutting edge SGI workstations were much more than $60K and had no place in someone's home studio or in small indie production without high budgets justifying the investment.

    Interestingly, no word on pricing comparison to last generation Mac Pro towers and also zero word on ROI of $20K computer on an oversaturated market with slammed production budgets.

    Btw $90k Alexa LF uncompressed raw doesn't need a $22K nor a $16k computer for fluid post. Not even close.

    As far as "filmmaking machine" glorification goes...$1k laptop which can edit Prores and Avid proxies is sufficient to get that title.
    Features are edited with proxies.

    8K with NR as a key factor for an ISO800 professional camera ? Talking about image quality ("8K or bust") through propagating underexposure ? Priceless.

    Looks like a filmmaking and workflow expert.
