I'm looking to shoot a short film in November. I think I'll record max between 3-5hrs for the
entire shoot. Most likely in 2k, still debating about 4k. My budget is around £200-£250 for 2
external hard drives, which I know is very little.
I wanted to know your opinion what will be the best hard drive to buy within that budget? As I'm
thinking is a lacie drive really needed and will a standard drive do the job.
I'll be editing on fcp7 and on the latest iMac.
I most likely will need help to figure out the best method of editing the footage.
Any decent fast I/O RAID will do.
Ive tested R3Ds across numerous options.
G-Tech eS Pro using SAS card in Mac Pro
Sonnet Tech PCI card with Dual SSD striped as one drive Thundebolt rMBP
G-Tech miniRAID FW800 with MacBook Pro
They all do the job but I opt for a ROCKET as far as my workflow goes.
I like watching my footage in real time and not Im not waiting for a GPU monster to drop on my lap :)
