Material from camera to computer - 9 Gb -> 5 Gb
on May 27, 2009 at 7:21:54 am

Hi.
I have used XDCAM Transfer program when converting the material from the EX-1 camera to a computer but now I noticed that the material on cameras memory disks are about 9 Gb and after transfering it is only 5 Gb. I guess the compression should be quite the same in camera as in computer but why am I missing 4 gigs here? Am I losing quality or something or why is it so much smaller?

Thanks

Mikko

You verified that you moved all the data?

All the shots were there?

I guess we'll never know what happened Tim.
The only issue with tapeless work flows is the large percentage of human error associated with it.

So I see you're hanging out here since you have been using the EX1.

Nice to have you around. Lets catch up tomorrow.

Hey Michael,

I -heart- the EX-1...

For a camera that fits in the overhead on a commuter jet, this camcorder really is fantastic.

Hi. i just came from filming a commercial so I couldn't answer until now. I double-checked that there was all the material transfered from the camera but It's still not 9 Gb. Then I downloaded the Log and Transfer plug-in for FCP from sony and with that I got it match the 9 gigs. How odd is that? :
