Anyone could enlighten me on the above before I make any necessary upgrades to my digital workflow?
I am shooting mostly RAW and need to do my conversions to JPG or TIFF fast with DPP(Canon software). I am currently using an old powerbook G4 titanium and it take more than 3 minutes to convert a raw file to JPG. This takes up too much time as I need to convert a lot of images fast.
What are my options? I do intend to get a desktop as a workstation and use the powerbook as a portable option. PC or Mac doesn't matter. I was recently quoted at VideoPro a set that I think is pretty decent but I am not sure if that's necessary.
The desktop includes:
Dual processors Pentium 4 2.8D
256MB Leadtek 660TD Video Card
NEC DVD Writer
CoolerMaster Box and power supply
All the above for $1.7k
Is this worth it? Or should I get something else? Please help!!
