    Hi John
    Trying to decide on which version to order but very happy you came out with these!
    Any advantage of the USB C version other than convenience of not needing an external reader, that is, can the content be uploaded faster via USB C than using Red's minimag reader?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Speeds are the same from the built in usb as with the current minimag reader.
    Faster than a minimag either way. I usually see just a hair under 500mb/s read speed offloading.

    No other advantage than saving on carrying a minimag reader when travelling light, or maybe saving numbers of readers when offloading multiple mags

    Well done for this John...

    I bought 4 of these sticks and I will report back as soon as I have tested them!!

    I definitely want to investigate incremental backups properly... and will do so carefully when the sticks arrive... but let me ask this forum... what is the best software to do incremental backups!

    My DITs always seem to use Silverstack?

    I have checked in hedge and it works pretty well... but what is best, easiest and safeist for incremental backups?

    With Johns media I am going to try a completely different work flow where the media is one of my backups until I have processed the shoot , put it all on my Editshare and done a LTO7 for ofsite safety. This should transform data wrangling on my shoots form high risk and slowish to low risk and fast... and I love the idea of not touching the original files to I know I have zero doubt all is ok!

    this is very interesting article re speed

    We're expecting to begin shipping starting from next week. We use UPS Express, so expect a couple of days shipping time.

    Hehe. Next generation around on the cameras I guess we’ll see NVMe or some other PCI concept for extra speed.
