Please explain how we've managed to go two+ years without one of these, and then all of a sudden you are in "Big Trouble" when you hire a DIT without one. I'd say you are in bigger trouble hiring a DIT with one of these card readers but no Idea how a Red Workflow actually works.
No offense, I like new toys too and am excited to see more new Red Products - but a Red Authorized Lemo to Esata interface box as a module here would be just as, if not more exciting to me.
I am confused, please somebody tolerate my question: is the RED Mag 2.5" a Hard Drive? And if so, what capacity are we talking about? 1Tb ? 1/2 Tb?
The Red Station has a 2.5" format module available to read/write to both these 1.8" SSDs (perhaps requiring an adapter, no word yet) and 2.5" spinning drives.
My question is whether we might be able to use 1.8" spinning drives in the same on-camera module.
There is a 1.8" REDMAG SSD card that will be released, that card will be used to record footage on camera via the 1.8" SSD Camera Module. The REDSTATION 1.8" Module to read that card will come out over the next few weeks.
The 2.5" REDMAG RED STATION module will accept normal 2.5" bare drives, so you can put a bare drive in ( Spinning or SSD ) and use it as an external hard drive, to offload cards to or for storage, etc.
can I copy from a CF card to two Red Mag drives simultaneously for backup?
Jarred, will there be a Redmag slot to replace the CF slot on a Red One?
For those wondering about 2.5" capacities; If the module takes standard 2.5" HDDs, then we should have lots of choices. Currently 2.5" HDDs are up to 1TB @ 5400rpm in a 12.5mm thick form or 750GB @ 5400rpm in the compact 9.5mm form. 2.5" SSDs are readily available at 256GB. Higher capacities are starting to enter the market.
Other than potential RED MAG media, I don't know of anyone making "performance" 1.8" storage devices.
