Now that the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are out, we are starting to see some real world footage and comparisons. In this interesting test, Jonathan Morrison pits the iPhone 8 against the $30,000 RED EPIC-W for a slow motion comparison at 1080p and 240fps. Apple continues to impress with the photo and video features and 240fps genuinely looks great on the iPhone 8.
Of course, if you’ve got a $30k camera at your disposal, you aren’t interested in shooting alternatively with the iPhone 8. However, the iPhone 8 makes a great slow motion camera for the rest of us.

Apple updated the MacBook Pro this week, along with a number of other products in its lineup. The notable upgrade points include a Intel’s faster seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors, along with updated graphics.
The graphics bump from the Intel Iris 540/550 to the Intel Iris Plus 640/650 in the 13″ models. The MacBook Pro 15″ models jump from the AMD Radeon Pro 450/455 to the Radeon Pro 555/560.
Overall, the jumps appear in specs and performance seem to be rather mild. Geekbench shows up to a 20% jump over the 2016 model performance in dedicated tests; however, the difference in real world benefits are likely negligible.
When Apple announced the new MacBook Pro, I was eagerly waiting to see what the replacement for my MacBook Pro that I bought in 2011 would be. Then, Apple did what Apple does and showed off a computer that is competely foreign to the workflow that I’ve built largely around Thunderbolt over the past five years or so. [Read more…]
