RED Epic cameras are the bees’ knees in camera tech, but their data throughput makes using typical storage options seem like filling a water balloon with a fire hose. Vincent Laforet gives us a look at how his team handles the deluge.
Shooting on the RED Epic in full 5k resolution eats up a preposterous 3-5 GB per minute. They also shot with a Hasselblad H4D, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D, and EOS 1D Mark IV, each of which shot RAW images at about 40MP each. Their workflow is really impressive — and informative — but I can’t help but imagine them blowing through those 128GB SSDs and tossing them aside like empty clips in a Stallone movie.
