This has been a major concern for me and my creative clients, Apple really needs to get off the fence and decide what it’s going to do about the Mac desktop line.

I just got in my first LG 27” UltraFine 5K 27MD5KA-B display (7680 x 4320), so far so good with the display, but my reason for writing this is not the display. All of our workstations since the G5’s have all had dual displays connected for the artists and this is the first dual display set-up with a 5K and an Apple Thunderbolt display, so it made me remember the Thunderbolt/HDMI bus configuration from my Apple MacPro Late 2013 Qualification training. Make sure when installing multiple displays Don’t connect more than two displays to any bus. Make sure their split between one of the three busses. Also if using HDMI displays you will need an adapter to connect to one of the Thunderbolt ports of another bus. Below is a diagram of the MacPro Thunderbolt bus configuration:

My favorite vintage 35mm camera is the Voigtlander Vito II:

  • Produced c 1954 Voigtlander braunshweig, Germany
  • Film type 135
  • Picture size 35mm
  • Weight 14.6 oz (413.9g)
  • Lens coated Color-Skopar 50mm f3.5
  • Filter size
  • Focal range 3′ to infinity
  • Shutter Prontor-S
  • Shutter speeds T, B, 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 300
  • Viewfinder simple
  • Exposure meter none

Mine is the German model so the distance is measured in meters. I bought from the original owners son and it and its fitted case are in pristine condition. It also take very sharp and clean images.
