Portable HD Question
on Nov 16, 2009 at 8:02:34 pm

Hey Everyone-

I'm going to be doing a shoot with the EX-1, with 1 8GB and 1 16GB card at 35mbps 1080p. I was looking at getting a 120GB dvBox portable HD to dump them to, but was wondering if it would be enough, or if anyone had another recommendation. I'm only going to be filling each card once.

Best,
Dave J

You'll find that this might not be enough Gigs, you'd be surprised how quickly things fill up. I have a tiny PROAVIO DVBOX 320 Gbs, USB powered, Firewire 400/800 leather case cost £178. Probably not much more than the one you are thinking about. Great for dumping files on location.

i think this us used to turn your internal sata hard drives into portable hard drives.

i can forsee you not needing to get a portable hard drive at all.You could just use what ever hard drive is in your computer now and you will not need to transfer footage later. Also it is sata so it is very fast
