Apple has launched a new device. It's called Pro. iPad Pro. Fine, I thought, maybe I can use it when I travel, to store, backup and edit photos and video. The professional can edit three 4K video streams simultaneously on this professional device, according to the description of its built-in magic.
So I read the description... and the technical data... and look at the pictures... they named some communication software after my ex-wife I see. Must be good then
Hmmm... where to connect the D810. By magic? Oh well, it is a camera that was launched more than a year ago after all. I'll buy some WiFi gadget then, hopefully fast enough to dump a full 64GB card in a couple of minutes... oh, wait... 128GB of memory and no expansion option? Hey, Apple, my RAW files are almost 100MB and I took nearly 90GB of them on my last one week trip to The Philippines. Where do I connect an external disk to this thing? And those 4K video files you're talking about. Has it ever occurred to you thay those files take up a tiny bit more space than the average selfie?
I'm losing faith, Apple, I'm losing faith. My 15" Retina is a fine machine, except for the price, size and weight. It even doubles as a heating unit on cold, tropical days, and the battery lasts for several hours after a year of everyday use. But please don't add Pro to the name when what you have achieved is just yet another selfie device
