Hangs4Fun Posted August 29, 2020 Share Posted August 29, 2020 Been gearing up for a 4K RAW workflow and had an idea that should be easy for Atomos to implement (I already submitted it to them, but curious what you guys think). Similar to how they created the Master Caddy II that allows us to use SSD 2.5" SATA drives and then use them in recorders like my Ninja V. Why couldn't they create a Master Caddy III that lets us use NVMe M.2 2280 chips that are now much more affordable? Not only are they affordable at around $100 to $200 per 1TB, but they can do sustained writes speed from 2,500 mbps to over 3,500 mbps, a magnitude of 7 times faster than typical 2.5" SSD drives. ALSO, they are the size of a memory stick and could easily allow 2 to be inserted on the back of a Ninja V (maybe 3), and potentially upto 4 on the backs of your larger recorders. Our media storage of drives would be even smaller than they were with Master Caddy II Would eleminate the need for Atomo's support drives page, which is grossly outdated and not a good indication a drive could work since it isn't based on transfer speeds at different modes Don't get me wrong, Atomos has some great solutions and the Ninja V is heck of a value. I'm just thinking that now NVMe prices are down to reasonable, they could have a solution that exceeds their write speed requirements for anything, including 16bit 8k RAW linear (no ProRes, just straight linear RAW). Any way, what do you think? Is there any enhancements you would add (8k support, 4K/120p support, etc)? LightShooter 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
