what to replace a maxxed late2015 imac27 with today without selling the car 23 Jun 2022 00:17 #121021

Hi. I'm looking at MacStudio or MBP with nonMac UHD monitor or tv. Also new maxxed iMac24. Can you please advice. I read very different reviews. NonMac monitors or tvs with resolution, refresh, color problems. Thank you.

I went with a MacMini and am very happy with it. Wanted a Studio but could not wait the two months to get one. Am working with 4K 10 Bit 4.2.2 from a Sony A7SIII and it performs nicely. The monitor I got is the version of the LG UltraFine 4K monitor that is built specifically to integrate with Apple products. Great color and resolution.

How big is your LG? Is it HDR?

Thanks.

It is the 24" LG UltraFine 4K monitor. Not HDR. www.apple.com/shop/product/HMUA2VC/A/lg-...9b1d6bd55cd9f5777b3b.

Thanks! How much video (gigas, teras) are you handling at once in a project, more or less. Sony 4K is more resolution than that LG monitor (UHD), it seems. Don`t you find surprises later on? No delays? No problems in general?

Most of my work is is between 600 and 800 GB. The M1 MacMini handles the most 4K 10 bit 4.2.2 clips just fine. There is occasional stuttering at the beginning of some clips where I let the camera run. Am running off the internal 2GB SSD with about 1TB of free space.

The LG 4K UltraFine Monitor handles the Sony images with no problem. There are five resolution settings with the default set to 1920x1080. I find the default scaling to large for my tastes so I have it scaled to 2560 to 1440. The screen shot shows my working window in FCP. The viewer shows 70% of the 4K clip with both the Library and Inspector open as well as a tall Timeline section.

Have not been surprised by anything and have no spinning beach balls. The Mini and the monitor seem to play well together.

IIRC it is a Land Rover Series 3. They were manufactured between 1971 and 1985.

Good to hear. I'm using about 6 teras of C4K from a GH4 in a big project. In a late2015 imac27, as the project grows, it starts to feel that it needs more power. I wonder if the Mini/LG will be at the same situation and if I would need a Studio M1pro ($2000, double the Mini). If I have to spend this $ I would have to compromise on the monitor. I'm considering a 43" UHD TV for that matter, but can't find much experiences about doing this. It could be a disaster.

Like I said above, I got the M1 Mini because the Studio was two months out after ordering it. I may upgrade the Mini to a Studio once they are more readily available. They is still about 1.5 months wait to get one.

Depending on where you get the UHD TV from you may be able to return or exchange it for a different monitor.

My opinion is that unless you are publishing UHD media there is no need for a UHD monitor. Yes it looks great on screen, but there are not that many phones, tablets, or UHD TV's in homes to justify the the added expense of shooting in it.

I think I've seen some Studios ready to ship outside Apple.
