RAID Arrays for Photography and Pro Video

If you’re working with large media files, you’re probably going to need more storage than a single drive can provide. While you could just haphazardly put a bunch of drives together, a RAID array is a better alternative because it uses multiple drives together to increase speed, protect your data, or both. You can configure your own RAID array by using software, but an array with a hardware RAID controller will provide better performance. Try to stick to hard drives with the same size, speed, and even model for your RAID array, for optimal performance.

So you figured, “Fine, I’ll just get an external hard drive.

Choosing the Right Rugged Storage Drive for Active Lifestyles

External storage drives come in many forms. From SSDs and HDDs, you can have ample storage space or lightning–fast access to files. For compatibility with your systems, B&H carries portable drives that sport a variety of interfaces, such as FireWire, USB, or Thunderbolt. Of the two drive types, hard drives are more susceptible to failures since they retrieve data with a spinning platter–and–head design. Excess vibrations or drops can cause irreparable data loss, when the read-and-write head makes contact with the platter and scratches the magnetic data-storage surface.

Being in a film production class is like being in a trade school; you develop tangible skills and learn best work practices that are just as valuable as the classroom theories. Film school is not just an intellectual challenge—you are making films, and to make films, you need equipment, tools, and supplies.
