iMac question for Nikon D800 files help needed
Feb 22, 2013

I'm considering an iMac to be able to work on these large 36mp D800 files and just want to make sure this is powerful enough for such work.  Can anyone give me some guidance with this possible purcahse; I'm not much of a tech guy when it comes to specs.
