Will Aperture 3 work with 4GB RAM on D800?
Apr 19, 2013

I'm getting close to purchasing a D800. What I have is a 15" MBP purchased in 2008 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo running Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Currently using Aperture 2 for my D700 raw. Obviously I am going to have to update much to enter the D800. I'm guessing I will be purchasing an iMac 27" maxed out on RAM with the hopes that this MBP can still be useful.

If I were to purchase the D800 first while having upgraded my MBP to Aperture 3 will I be able to have some editing functions work enough in order to test out the camera as far as judging focus? Would raw's import onto my current system via a card reader just as I have been doing with the D700 files? I send the masters to an external HD. I don't intend to getaway with much aggressive editing but I'm wondering what you think could be possible?

To sum it up, can I still test out the D800 functions before getting the computer upgrade and after I do upgrade to an iMac, can I still use this MBP to import and view while on the road and transfer to the iMac upon return?
