So far, so good.
I’ve installed Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as PTGui Pro and Aurora HDR Pro. Everything seems to be running smoothly. I was mostly concerned with the performance of Lightroom on a Core M3 processor but I have to complaints so far. Performance is good. The keyboard takes some getting used to, though. Short travel keys for a touch typist is a bit of a challenge. I’ll let you know if I get used to it.
I’ve tested a workflow with Lightroom (although I don’t know if it’s the most efficient; let me know) where I do my mobile importing and editing on the MacBook and then export as a catalog what I’ve shot and retouched. I transfer everything to my NAS, and then import on my main Mac running Lightroom. Thank goodness Adobe allows us to install our licensed programs on two machines.
Now I have an ultra portable kit for taking pictures. My RX100 III (which I love more and more), my Sirui travel tripod and the MacBook. All in a Tamrac Rally 5 bag. I can walk about all day with that. I can fulfill my fantasy of going for a walk in the city, shoot what inspires me and then stop off in a coffee shop and sip a latte while editing my favourite pictures.
Now that is happy shooting!
