Hard drive size needed
Posted 13 October 2015 - 07:18 AM
I will shooting red epic 2k 8:1 compression..We will manly be shooting 24fps but may do some 90 fps. We have. 128 go red mags.. Would a 2t hard drive be a sufficient amount of space for backing up footage? I feel 5tb would be too much but I am inclined to get one to be certain there will be enough space. Would I be fine with 2 tb?
Thank you kindly for suggestions.

You didn't indicate your shooting ratio or how many pages of script you were shooting.

Use that, plus your calculations of how many minutes you might shoot to calculate an estimated storage size. I'd say for something like a music video or short film, 2TB would be fine, but you'll definitely want to do the math to be sure. I'd also get extra storage, you never know what might happen. I personally would recommend the Lacie Porsche 3TB, it's about $140 on Amazon right now. The 5TB isn't too much more either.
