7D and now new computer - anyone else feel the need?
Sep 5, 2010

I bought my 7D back in March and I really like the camera, but the files are big and the movies need a lot of horse power. My 4 year old PC dual core just is really struggling with editing the files. Maybe its just me, but I had waiting for processing. I think Lightroom 3 is great, but 7D RAW files are big. Full res videos, not even worth trying to edit. So I finally broke down and ordered a new i7 based machine.

Just wondering if any others here have felt the need to get more computing horse power for their new cameras. Up until the 7D, I have never felt my various PCs I have had could not keep up with my camera...until now.
