I never leave for a day of shooting without my SanDisk Extreme Pro cards
I have a whole selection ranging from 64GB to 250GB as I can always count on them.
In addition, I take my WD SSD Extreme PRO external SSD 1TB with me
- only then I am properly equipped for my creative endeavors.”
I have two cameras. Zeiss Otus: 28mm, 55mm, 85mm, and 100mm. For this a zoom 24-70mm.
I have a Profoto B1X To-Go Kit for trips where I have to take many portraits on locations – e.g. tribal people.
I always work with SanDisk's latest products – their products are without a doubt the most important element of my work as they ultimately save my work. I would rather compromise on taking e.g. an extra camera, than a SanDisk Extreme card. In this connection, I have cards from 64 GB up to 250 GB - I use card size depending on the scope of the task – e.g. if I film a lot and shoot at the same time, well, then of course I use a 250 GB or larger one.
