WOW.

How they are going to get these things all synched up is a modern miracle but I believe they will!!! Editing is going at a BREAK NECK pace back here in Hollywood....
I wonder why that should be?

Consider that the same Apple Dual-Core G5 has virtually no problem showing 4k = 8.85 MegaPixel still photos in either Preview or iPhoto. So how can the same size RAW data file be any different (except for aspect ratio) from the output of a digital SLR?
