    Just FYI. The Longtake can NOT be used with DSMC1 cameras, only DSMC2 will be able to format and use the card.

    Totally forgot to post here after getting mine. I used it on a job that's in post now and it performed like a champ. I only own two cards: a 480GB minimag and this 2TB Kippertie mag. With only these two cards I can shoot all day (narrative; incremental backups of course). Great buy and I'll probably grab another in the spring.

    PS - Write speed is faster in a BMD speedtest than the RED minimag (not surprising)

    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... !
    Good feedback... Thanks...

    If you're somebody who uses "just" the battery module and has super wide bricks or only useful shark fins, you might have some clearance issues. I have most named bricks here and not having any issues sliding the mag out or anything.

    Looks cool!

    I was initially pretty content with the idea of a few 480gb mags, but these 2TB open up some options for low compression doc work. Was glad the timing worked out. Kippertie people seem pretty great.

    EDIT: LT Mags just arrived. Looking forward to putting them to work!

    Kippertie LT mags ended up looking great on the Ranger Gemini. 5:1 compression means 5hrs record time! Might need bigger batteries.
