I will be taking approximately 300 GB of data cards to capture images and video along the expedition. However, all of these storage devices only weigh l about an ounce and a quarter. As the two cameras I am taking use SD cards, I will have no problem carrying all that storage.
That amount of storage Will allow me to capture up to 1,600 minutes of hi-def 1080p at 28MB a second. That level of video quality crushes my old MacBook Pro. I will have to get a much faster computer to edit this when I get home.
Plus, the media is quite tough so I don’t have to be too worried about it. My biggest risk is that they are very small and have to be careful with them.
It’s amazing that I can carry an entire hard drive that would be used in a laptop that can be balanced on a few fingers.
