We have FOUR 32Gb Memory Cards, TWO 16Gb Memory Cards, TWO 8Gb Memory Cards and ONE 60Gb Sony Hard Disk for use with our Sony EX3. That is about 14 hours of XDCAM EX footage in full High Definition. With our kit, you really shouldn’t need to offload during the shooting day, unless you seriously plan on recording a straight 14 hour run. And if you did want to shoot a straight 14 hour run without stopping or longer, even 24 hours or a straight week!
You can because the Sony EX3 and EX1R allow you to swap the cards without stopping your recording (we’d also solve the problem of providing a continuous power supply for you). There are two slots and they can be alternated. Our kit includes a laptop and TWO 640Gb hard drives. When we offload we make two copies to the two hard drives. This ensures that should a hard drive fail, the valuable data is kept safe on the backup drive. Should you use more than 14 hours, you can because we are fully equipped. You need not worry when you’ve got Mufasa’s camera team working for you, not many production houses in Thailand can handle such a long day roll !
