Larry O'Connor, founder of Other World Commuting (OWC), discusses what he feels are the challenges facing cinematographers today when it comes to video storage.

He says, "Most new cameras today use SSD (solid state drives) to capture content because it provides relatively high capacity, low battery draw and is rugged. For obvious reasons, I’d like to see more camera manufacturers adopt the Blackmagic approach and use an industry-standard interface and then test/certify specific products for their cameras. That broadens the options for the cinematographer, lowers his/her storage costs and enables storage providers to add newer, better, higher-capacity products more quickly for today’s creative artists."
