13" MBA question
« on: December 28, 2010, 03:15:44 AM »

Does anyone have a new 13" MacBook Air as yet? And used it tethered with Lightroom?

I currently use a 2008 15" 2.53GHz MBP when shooting tethered with a 1Ds MkIII, via watched folder to Lightroom 3. It takes about 5-6 seconds from shutter release to view. I'd dearly love to lighten my load when travelling so the new 13' MBA looks very appealing but I'd be very interested to hear how long it takes to do the above. I hardly ever do any actual Photoshop work in the field so I'm not too interested in that side of things.

Thanks for any input!

The Nikon software is much more complete and allows you to shoot from the computer not just the camera.  The capture in LR feels like a striped down version unless your camera is always handheld.
