For massive raw video footage files, is everyone still transferring footage by hard drive? I've had a reprieve from video editing and wonder if that has changed. I do not have access to T1 internet.

[Teresa Brown] "is everyone still transferring footage by hard drive?"

I think the question should be, who is NOT transferring to hard drives? ☺ What else were you considering? Cloud?

Yeah...for massive files, hard drives are still the go-to way to go. As Oliver said, who ISN'T doing this? If you don't have access to high speed internet, then huge files via web servers seems like a non-starter. It'll take you longer to get the footage that way than if a drive was shipped to you.

Not to mention that in some cases, fast transfers of large files result in significant data charges depending on the service that you use. You are going to have to copy the camera cards to hard drives anyway. So making two copies is trivial and FedEx (or a similar overnight service) gets it there overnight within the country.

It's also worth mentioning that data transfer off the camera cards should be to TWO hard drives (three is even better). Then when FedEx loses your shipment, you still have a copy on your footage. Ship the second copy after the first one arrives safely.
