    We won’t cross over with Red’s own exact capacities on principle.

    How about redundant (RAID1) versions?

    Not without a substantial change to the way the camera addresses the mag.

    Honestly I’m also unconvinced that the added complexity of a hardware raid controller and the doubled probability of drive failure pans out to a genuinely more reliable system. Dual recording slots with independent paths in camera would be the better wish for the future IMHO.

    I wonder how many ssds fail. Since red moved to SSD I have never had an issue. (1st Gen red drives, yes). Kippertie LT looks incredibly robust and solid. And good design, as usual.

    Since they stopped selling the 48, 64, 120, and 240 GB mags, would you consider selling those sizes? Kippertie Short Take 48GB Mini Mags?

    I've been asked many times on this, so I've requested a formal answer from Red. It was *not* on the table per my informal discussions with Jarred previously.
    If Red have a lower capacity cut-off that they will not be revisiting, I would consider it. Not a firm yes even then though, as the economics are not as favourable for the consumer.

    My view is also that risk to data multiplies by mag units used far more than by TB shot, and people shoot quantities largely independent of overall mag capacity.

    OK we just received 4 x Longtake SSD mags...

    1st brief impressions:

    it is a brilliant idea for them to come in their own 4 mag capable mini Peli case that are the exact same size the Red ones. I LOVE THIS!! you can use Red and LT media side by side without finding a new home for the cards to live.. Our camera cases are cut with a space for this particular mini Peli case so a real bonus for us!

    they feel very nice in hand and share the same premium workmanship you would expect from Red/Arri etc... They are full of little thoughtful design touches..! The bright coloured part being only on one side and facing inward for example..

    they run a little cooler than Red mags. I have no idea if that actually matters but if feels reassuring.

    I initially thrashed them in a Monstro for about 1/2-1 hour each (max everything) and they perfomed perfectly but then I ran a fake test with a workstation dumping 1.5 TB of R3d data onto them and the mag never dipped under 400MB/s..

    The shape does feel slightly odd against the Red mags we are used to but we couldn't realy find a proper concrete negative...

    We would never ever buy 3rd party media without Red approval and even then I feel we only took the leap becuase John is such a stickler for the impotant but sometimes boring details ;-)

    Will report back after some serious TBs of shooting....

    Next thing is we need to work out a slightly new labeling system due to the shape... but that shouldn't be hard

    Over all very positive... !
