When DP Jim Kinsey is shooting an episode of Skull Bound TV, a hunting and fishing show on the Sportsman Channel, often he is in the middle of nowhere with no power (or even running water) for days at a time. Under these conditions, having a portable backup device that is fast, reliable and efficient is critical. His backup system of choice? The Nexto DI NVS2825 Video Storage-Air. On a recent shoot in rural Montana, he was in a small pop-up trailer for five days straight with no power, but he was still able to offload footage from his Sony a7s, PMW-EX3 and Action Cam to the Nexto.
“What I love about the NVS2825 is that it’s super fast and reliable,” says Kinsey. “Time is money, and with the Nexto, you can just dump and go. The power lasts a long time: 120 minutes with the internal battery and an additional 180 minutes with the external. The unit also verifies your data bit by bit so you know your footage is safe and secure. It accepts different types of media and comes with all of the adapters you need. You can back up SxS and P2 directly, and CF, SD, SDXC and SDHC via adapter.
“This is the ultimate way to offload all my files in the field. My Nexto never misses a beat!”
