Christian Unger: The interesting part is that you can run iOS apps, so if an iPad Pro is too much tablet and not enough notebook, this sounds quite interesting as you might get "best of both worlds" (MacOS applications and iOS apps), plus probably a lot more performance than the iPad (and any Intel machine in that price range).
I was actually considering an iPad Pro for Lightroom CC and Lumafusion, but then decided to wait for this, and it looks like a good alternative.

I am using my iPad Pro for LR and luma....it is crazy fast with hasselblad raw files...if this M1 is faster and has a lot more ram it should be a monster...apple says the MacBook Pro runs 8k prores raw at full size on external display....
I am really used to working on the iPad Pro now and am kind of waiting for the new one, new chip, more storage mini led....but this MacBook Pro might be a better solution....

psartman: Having only one head outlet instead of 2 or 3 is an inexplicably bad decision. Godox doesn't seem to get it that pro photographers use multiple sources in their setups. That also goes for the advanced monolights such as the 300, 400 and 600 pro. They have extension heads available, why not build a socket into the body of the light so they can be used WITH the built-in head? They would have to add to the controls and internal electronics to allow ration settings, but it's possible. Balcar used to do it with their monolights. (Don't you hate how moonlight autocorrects to moonlight? And Godox to Good?)

I think its a great kit, i have several 600 monos and this fits right in...much easier to use this plus monos or 2 of these....i had the broncolor mobile packs for years and the 2 outlets were useless....i actually got my first 600s because having 2 heads on one battery powered pack makes little sense....
I won’t go into the price on this thing compared to broncolor and others....its crazy....
I never really liked the head extension for the 600 but love having the weight of the pack where it should be.....a 1200 mono would be much too big and heavy...
This is perfect, price is pretty amazing....

Oilcruzer: *grabs popcorn, readies for the inevitable "LR is Better" arguments.*

i am using LR right now because C1 refuses to support fuji GFX....
LR isn't cheap but i need PS anyway and C1 charges hefty upgrade charges every year or two, so in the end it all comes out to about the same...

Paul: just bought the XH1 and not the A7III for a couple of reasons:
i am mostly looking for video with this, eterna is the best and easiest (for post) in camera capture available in this class....resolution is one thing, color and tones another....
the smaller the sensor the better the results with IBIS (m4/3 is just too small for mea little too video looking)
lenses are much smaller, lighter and cheaper, (especially primes) but still great quality, i can still use all my random old manual glass...
A7III has better AF and slightly better IQ for stills...
i have the GFX for stills, if i would not have that i would still not go for the A7III but spend the extra and go for the A7RIII.....but i know i can get better video out of the XH1 then the A7RIII or A7III....
the XH1 is probably not the best at anything but all around IMO the best video with still really good stills
the good sony lenses are great but they are big, heavy and not cheap...

actually i can....IBIS works better and i prefer working with the built in profiles (on the fuji) to s-log....and eterna has raised this to a whole other level....a great starting point but still very workable in post....
AF is better on sony but i use manual lenses for a lot of video work...
a lot of this comes down to personal workflow or preference and i completely get it if someone looks at the sony as a better one camera solution....
for me the stills part of the XH1 will be a p&s walk around with the compact XF f2 lenses and there is nothing in the sony lineup that can compete with that in size weight and price.....i love love love the GM lenses but they are big and heavy....
