I'm doing today a telecine for a short student film shot in b&W, kodak double x, and i spoke with the postproduction house and they can put my material on hdd tape and/or hdd, I don't know if is worth it to spend the money on a tape, it's 70$, or better buy an hdd. And a second question do you know how much space I need ie.GB for 30 min of negative, the machine is a spirit. Sorry for all the questions but I'm a sudent and it's the first telecine on hdd, if hdd is the best solution.

If you are editing on systems like FCP HDD is best as you'll just need to re-digitize the tape. As for how much space it depends on what quality they are outputting too. Could be 800 megs to 8gigs a minute depending on the output. Talk to the house.
