Now that I'm on the list it's time to start thinking about what I will need for on set backup. Most of the time I'll use the cards but for formal sit down interviews it will have to be the Drive. Either way I'll be swapping cards in and out and also reusing the drive after it's been copied. I can easily shoot 4 to 6 hours of stuff in a day.
I have a Mac Book Pro so I'd appreciate some recommendations on back up hard drives. It has to be small and light..no big arrays as we need to travel light. Around 300GB and as rugged as possible. Firewire 800 rather than USB. Are the LaCie's any good?
