    Can Red please tell us what the run times are on the 3 available SSD's shooting with EPIC?

    Just trying to work out how long I can shoot for at various frame rates/quality so I know what capacity SSD will work for me.

    This quote from Deanan is from this page

    http://reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?t=52455&page=6

    "At 5k 2:1 and REDcode 5:1 (which will likely be what most features shoot with), a 64GB SSD will be about 12-13 minutes."

    Don't hold your breath.

    The only time any Red item comes down in price is because it's being replaced by something better.

    Only 128GB SSD drives are shipping so far ... and even then ... in extremely limited quantities.

    Good to know it will be a cool day when we have 500gig SSDs.

    I personally think the vast majority of projects will want to shoot the Epic at higher compression, as in smaller file sizes. It's very difficult to tell the difference between Redcode 28 and 42, especially on a TV or computer screen, where most projects end up. Redcode 5:1 is probably overkill for most work.

    So, based off of that quote from Deanan here is what I figure the run times to be for EPIC:

    $950 - 64GB = 12 Minutes / 6 Minutes for HDRx (As HDRx is twice the data)
    $1,800 - 128GB = 24 Minutes / 12 minutes for HDRx
    $3,200 - 256GB = 48 Minutes / 24 minutes for HDRx

    If this holds up by the time the cameras are released, then I think the sweet spot for myself is the 64GB cards. (3 of them.) 12 minutes seems to be like a decent time / interval to shoot before off loading. There have been VERY few times when I have shot on a project where we could not back up at that interval, or needed longer runtimes then that. I know many are saying that 128GB is the sweet spot, but I can't imagine needing to go for that long or longer on a regular basis- and even Jim is saying that with the EPIC HDRx is not needed all that often... any other thoughts on media?

    This is NOT official (yet) but should give you a good idea what's happening with REDCODE and SSDs.

    Double the times for a 256GB card and halve the times for a 64BG card (pretty obvious I guess)...

    Nice, Jim!

    Everybody should pay special attention to the 5:1 column... it's going to be a good "home." Naturally, everybody should keep in mind that different RC ratios will only be available at certain frame rates due to write speed. It'd be pretty hard to do 5K FF 3:1 at 120 frames...
