Sony EX1 and a Hard drive

Hi

I am thinking of getting a Sony EX1 with 16Gb card and will be using it for corporate films and weddings. I have a Mac book and a Mac pro at home and external hard drive. I wanted to know if it was possible to on location transfer my clips from the camera sxs card through my mac book onto an external hard drive not using final cut. Then when I get home using the same external hard drive on my mac pro to edit?

thanks

Yes, you can use Sony's Clip Browser or XD CAM Transfer to get your footage into your computer on site. I used this setup in Romania for two weeks of concert shoots but I used two external hard drives to make sure I had a backup of my footage. I would recommend two cards and then you should not have to transfer on site.

I second that...it works great and get a second drive for backup. The clients I work for do this all the time. We've done international projects for two weeks at a time in the field with this workflow. And we can edit on site to post projects from the field when needed. Firewire 800 drives are fast enough to edit.

If you're considering wedding work, I've seen several companies offering same-day editing for playback at the reception. It's great not to have to spend time digitizing from tape.

I have an EX1 that you might be interested in.

Yes that is exactly it, i want it to act as a bridge t the hard drives so i can edit direct from the drives later on my mac pro.

What is this about an EX1??

Thanks

Yes, the process works well. Just be sure to backup your media. If you're in the market for a camera,, I have a very gently used EX1 available. If interested, email me:
