    Ty Harper reacted to Dimitris Stasinos in Apple releases 16 in MacBook Pro with better thermals!   
    Don't get me wrong, i am enjoying the platform too. My iMacs have been real workhorses and FCPX is a gem. 
    But when you get into a situation similar to the one i described above you are forced to reconsider the real value of these products, especially the hardware part.
    Imagine paying 4500$ from your hard earned money for a laptop and then plugging in your earphones to avoid listening to the 2000 pops that will be produced during an editing session. Then imagine claiming your customer rights from a company that like @kaylee said above "doesn't talk about it". 
    Also, the customer support in USA is way better than here in Europe.

    Ty Harper got a reaction from kye in What is the absolute cheapest high CRI light available?   
    +1 for tungsten, unless you book alot of time sensitive gigs that require you to pack up and leave fairly quickly, which is something that can be easily forgotten/overlooked if you're not used to working with fixtures that need time to cool down after they've been used.

    Ty Harper got a reaction from Emanuel in In the Field Backup Solution   
    Looks like it only allows SSD's up to 1TB in size (or maybe I'm misunderstanding the specs) while the Nexto allows for 4TB SSDs and technically can take drives up to 32TB in size, which seems like a much better long term investment.

    YouTubers have been promoting the new Gnarbox 2.0 which looks kind of cool.
    IIRC it has ability to plug in an external USB drive for storage, as well as a USB port for an external card reader, and can do cool things like backup a card to the internal and external drive at the same time.

    In case people haven't seen Nexto's latest backup solution. Comes in a few different configurations including one that includes a CF slot: https://www.nextodi.com/products/nps-10/
    Anyone own/use one yet?

    yup got $600 back!  and a free repair! consumer advocacy works!!!! I reached out to their sales rep about the matter  - I'm not taking full credit, but I reached out and we should all do this about any product if we are not happy with it.

    I remember doing a sh*t load of research into LTO drives and there was one thing I found out that made me not do it... just can't remember exactly what it was, sorry...

    Don't they have a file size limit? 
    Correct. If you're only storing a couple hundred gigs, or even a TB or so, it's not too big of a worry. It's when you start getting in the 10's of TBs or more that it becomes an issue where you're kinda held hostage. It's not as simple to switch Cloud services when you're dealing with such a massive amount of data.

    Cloud services are convenient at first but quickly become expensive and hard to move away from once you have a lot of data in them.
    Bottom line is video data is incredibly burdensome no matter how you want to store it.

    Well with 8K coming, and 6K likely to be a consumer standard soon that will be an even bigger burden on Cloud Services. I don't trust squat away from my own self unless I have it backed up. And if I do that why bother even with the cloud. Sure the Cloud can save you from having 2 backups at different locations, but for what you pay it almost to me for big projects not worth it.
    There is just way too much hacking going on as of late to trust any one with all your data, that in the long run is nothing short of suicide.

    Looks like the consumer shift to streaming is having a major impact on the hard drive market (one major component supplier is already positioning itself away from the market) which will very likely in turn impact the price of hard drives in a negative way.
    Personally, there's no way I'm putting my trust in a cloud service, so I guess I'll just have to be more thoughtful about my storage strategies and take whatever price increases might be coming down the pipe.

    Ty Harper reacted to BTM_Pix in Wireless storage access   
    The drive itself is USB3 when connected to your PC but the port for external card reader devices like the one shown there is USB2.
    For my application using it in LumaFusion that bothers me less because the determining overall speed factor is the wireless transfer which is slower than USB2 anyway.

    I have the older model (ND2901)... and while I haven't used it in a bit, it worked pretty well when I did... this new one looks like it'll be a great upgrade.

    Ty Harper reacted to Kisaha in New low budget "pro" wireless: Deity Connect   
    If you are happy with the G3s, then try to find a cheap used one. They usually don't break easily. I know people still using their G2s and they are happy with them.
    Rodelink can be found for dead cheap also and can be a good solution (same Deity technology) if do not mind the size (they are huge!).
    Personally, the absolute minimum for me are the Sony UWP series, they are hybrid and have true diversity, a characterestic found in more expensive systems.
    The Deity Wireless will be a good solution, we are waiting for the first real reviews and comparisons. They can easily become your first setup.
    There are always the Rode Go and the new Sennheiser systems, but they are too consumerish for my taste.
    Wait for the new Deity (they will sell loads of those!) and see, or else check the first option (cheap used G3).

    I know..  think about how all the forums are full of angry people demanding 8K cameras!
    Once you understand that this progression is mainly driven by the tech companies constantly trying to find ways to make you keep buying things, then the rationale becomes clearer
