Sony F55, Blackmagic, GoPro and a RED can all play nicely together

Sony F55, Blackmagic, GoPro and a RED can all play nicely together | HDSLR | Scoop.it
Every now and again, a pure signal rises above the ambient noise of most tweets. Such was the case when DP Ed David reached out to us on Twitter wondering if you, dear readers, would be interested in how he and the team got a bunch of Sony F55s, Blackmagics, GoPros, and a RED camera to play... http://blog.planet5d.com/2014/09/sony-f55-blackmagic-gopro-and-a-red-can-all-play-nicely-together/

A Bunch of Random Hard Drive Speed Tests

A Bunch of Random Hard Drive Speed Tests | HDSLR | Scoop.it
As a freelance editor I get a lot of hard drives sent to me with footage to edit. Usually all of that media is transferred off of those hard drives and onto a RAID for editing. Occasionally I might have a quick turnaround or just fixes on a project and I’ll cut right off the hard drive sent to me. The faster the drive the better for both of these tasks. I’ve been keeping a running log of hard drive speeds for the last few months and with the help of Blackmagic’s Disk Speed test I offer up this cornucopia of various drive speed tests and their connections. Little commentary is provided here but if you have a production asking why you’re questioning their use of a cheap little black Seagate drive from Target then send them to this blog post to see exactly what slow speeds that cheap drive will mean and how that will add time to editorial because of file transfers alone.
