Solid Backup for Solo Filmmakers

Whether you’re talking about a 90-minute video or a single still image, everything worth keeping needs to get backed up. Of course, size does matter, and video — especially extremely high-definition and high frame rate video — changes the storage workflow, including backup considerations. That old USB drive can no longer cope.

Why You Should Rely on a Professional Photography Backup

If you’re good enough to get paid for your photography, you’re smart enough to protect it.

In our last blog article, we looked at the forthcoming Thunderbolt 3 storage interface. We examined its top benefits, including daisy chaining, USB Power Delivery, and a doubling of bandwidth from Thunderbolt 2’s 20 Gbit/s to the new generation’s 40 Gbit/s.

Will Third-Gen Thunderbolt Be the Charm?

Ask any presidential hopeful: Being the best choice in a race is no guarantee of getting elected. Moreover, what’s “best” for one group may not be desired by another. Progressives always face a battle to budge the status quo.

During the month of November this past year, I was able to take a trip of a lifetime, traveling to exotic places in Southeast Asia and Africa.
