We are considering a RED ONE purchase for a project starting in October. Here in Virginia, we will be be documenting the construction of a bridge that will span from mid Oct 2010 until approx Jan of 2012. The company that we are shooting for designs and builds really beautiful and unique bridges, and has had previous projects featured on NatGeo, so were really excited about the project. But, I dont even know if we put in an order now, if we would be able to receive the cam before the start date(emailed RED but haven't heard back).
My question is, if we purchased a RED ONE MX, and were to shoot approx 10 hours a week, how much storage would I need for the original 2k raw files? What is that, 600 hours for 15 months? I would be keeping the original files, but I would be also making 1080p downrezzed versions for delivery/dailies each week.
So if anybody has any insight and can offer advice, it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.
