Computer: Macbook Pro OS X Lion (2011) (includes firewire & usb outputs & SD slot)
Editing software: FCPX
External hard drive: ???
I want to get the highest possible picture & sound quality from my PXW-X70, to do this I need to shoot using the following formats:
Video: XAVC Long GOP 422 10-bit 50Mbps (1920x1080) at 60p
Audio: XAVC QFHD : Linear PCM 2ch, 24bit, 48kHz
I know nothing about external hard drives. How do I avoid loss in sound & picture quality?
Because I don't know much about this, I don't know whether
a) the hard drive itself is what matters,
the transfer method (firewire vs. usb vs something else),
c) the method of moving data back & forth between hard drives, or
d) all of the above.
Any feedback would be helpful
