New iMac!! :D

Now, finally after much searching and research I bought myself a new imac 24″, with 2.8GHz and 4GB of ram – it’s really nice to work with. I’m not sure it’s faster than my old hackintosh but not much slower and no worries about updates! :D That’s worth a lot. I’m currently installing all my software – does take some time to recreate my good old system. :) Soon done. I have calibrated the glossy screen and it seams to be quite nice, very sharp. Some LED backlight that is really really bright. At night it almost hurts even at lowest setting.   

And about those posted pictures, it’s not very easy to take them. I had a huge problem with timing. Seeing what I wanted to catch and take the shot at the right moment in high speed with a very wide angle optic is very very difficult. The thing is that when you take the shot of a car (say the american oldie) then the feeling is that it more or less passed when you press the trigger. THEN you probably got it just right. Same with a bridge. It really feels strange, everyone should give it a try. For these shots I used the SD14 and 12-24 + coking filter and ND grad. Not sure what the local police would say if they saw me – I didn’t look in the view finder when taking these (maybe on one or two). :)

Thanks guys for your support and really kind messages. Next post has some shots from Denmark in it. Yooohooo! Hope colors looks ok – not sure the spider calibrates such a glossy LCD correctly. Please give me feedback.

    I can tell you that when it comes to glossy I have found, without doubt that the Huey Pro worked for me MUCH better. Big congrats on the iMac.

    Congratulations to your new iMac! The colors also seem fine when looking at the wedding pictures above, so think you’ve done well with your calibration.

    Finally I replaced my Mac Mini with an iMac, too :) Everthing which was sooo slooow flies now, I am very satisfied, even without 4GByte but 2. Are you really sure that it is a LED display? I believed it is still the old fashioned.

    I will have to calibrate my screen, but I doubt I can decrease backlight to a photographic value. But, the colors are so nice and everything is so sharp now, I am overwhelmed!

  5. Hi Spalbird!

    Thanks for last time and a Happy New Year to your loved ones! :P

    LED. I’m not sure anymore – I went to the Apple.com website, trying to find claims for my LED thing comment but no, I CAN’T!!! I must have been mistaken by the fast light-on response compared to my old screen or something. sorry.
