Videographer's Mac workstation

This weeks great Mac workstation comes to us from Corey S., a professional videographer and photographer based out of Dallas, TX who uses a bunch of great Apple gear to get the job done. Studio hardware shown in this setup picture includes the following gear:

  • iMac 27″ – 3.4GHz Core i7 CPU, 12GB RAM, 1TB HD, 2GB GPU, 2560×1440 resolution
  • Apple Cinema Display 23″ – 1920×1200 resolution

    What kind of camera do you use? What software is used by pros for video and image correction, is Adobe king of the hill?

    And how on earth are you connecting an xBox 360 to a Mac??

    Great Mac desk, I love the iMac and I want to get one myself one of these days!

    Mathew,

    I use adobe lightroom and photoshop for photos and final cut studio 5 for editing and adobe encore for dvd authoring.

    I am also shooting a nikon d600 with battery grip and the photo you see on screen was grabbed by a nikon 70-200 f2.8.

    Corey,

    Since you have both an iMac with glossy display and a (somewhat) old matte Cinema Display, I’m curious as to your thoughts on the differences between those two displays?

    Good setup. Thanks…

    Kevin,

    The glossy display is nice when looking at some thing high contrast and i enjoy the over color render better on it. But at 27inches sometimes you get a bit of glare and that drives me nuts. I switch between displays quite a bit i have also found that any sort of gaming done on the 27 inch screen to be troublesome due to the larger than normal resolution. The older 23 inch runs at 1920 x 1200 and more games seem to be ok with that resolution.
