Holdan is the distributor for Gnarbox, Wise Advanced and Angelbird. Both manufacturers produce world-class media: External SSD drives Portable backup unit CFexpress cards SD cards CFast cards High speed readers Our team in the chat room have bags of experience shooting video – speak with them about why quality matters. External SSD or Backup SSD? It's a question you may not have asked yourself many times before, but it's worth considering. An external SSD is furiously fast with high speed connectivity and capacity for thousands of images and hours of high-resolution 4K footage. The only problem is that it needs to be connected to a laptop or workstation to work. That's fine is you're in the studio or editing on location. But what if you're travelling or need to pack light? A trek with a laptop is no fun, especially if it's likely to be wet weather. Gnarbox 2.0 is well worth considering: auto-back up and verify all your SD cards at the touch of one button, connect via a smart phone or tablet to begin managing files and upload to the cloud via WiFi. It's knock-proof, weather-proof and comes with an all-day battery. Watch our video now for details, or speak with the team.
The Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro G2 has proven to be a popular choice for professionals. This is mainly due to its high specification that's usually only reserved for cameras costing much more. Its popularity means that manufacturers are quick off the mark in developing compatible and complimentary products to extend the functionality and convenience of the camera. Here's a selection of add-ons to consider when purchasing the camera.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, is as the name suggests, an incredibly portable and lightweight 6K RAW capable cinema camera. At its heart is a Super 35mm sensor capable of resolving up to 13 stops of dynamic range. The body is similar in design to that of its 4K sibling, other than the extended lens mount to accommodate for the larger sensor and the widely used EF mount standard. Low light performance is improved too due to the combination of that larger sensor and dual native ISO.
With the release of the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, it’s time to start thinking about how you want to record…Like the URSA Mini Pro, the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has built-in SD & CFast card slots. However, it only has 1 of each and (currently) will not roll record from one to the other. Now, if you’re shooting in one of the mid/low ProRes or DNG codecs or HD RAW, it’s not a massive problem (30+ minutes based on a 256GB card); but if you want to shoot higher resolutions in RAW or ProRes XQ then you’re looking at, potentially, 10-15 minutes based on the same card…that’s going to mean a LOT of card switching! Thankfully, the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has something extra… The USB-C port on the side of it isn’t just for updates; connect a portable hard drive or SSD and you can record directly onto it. The advantage of this is that portable drives can store a lot more data than any memory card, which means you’ll be carrying less media. Also, as they’re USB-C, you can connect them to your Mac/PC and start editing straight from the drive.
