    Hate to be a search nazi, but try searching for this and similar topics. It has been covered many many times.

    Phoenix, AZ
    Editing Bay

    Mac Pro 8-core 3GHz
    10GB RAM
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB
    Stock 320GB 7,200-rpm SATA hard disk for boot/apps
    2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB hard disks in software RAID-0 for scratch
    CalDigit FASTA-4e eSATA card
    AJA Kona LHe capture/output card
    30" Apple Cinema Display
    17" Panasonic BH-LT1760 broadcast monitor
    Mac OS 10.5.4

    Mobile Editing Station

    15" MacBook Pro C2D 2.6GHz
    4GB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB
    200GB Hitachi 7K200 7,200 rpm hard disk (boot/apps)
    CalDigit FASTA-1ex eSATA ExpressCard

    Nothing totally special about the mobile rig, but the next toy on my wish list is an AJA IO HD (Kona for a notebook!).

    Software (installed on both machines): Final Cut Studio 2 with FxFactory Pro 2 plugin pack, Adobe After Effects CS3, Adobe Photoshop CS3, Redcine/Red Alert/Crimson (workflow apps for RED footage).

    I've mostly been doing work with DVCPRO-HD, HDCAM and REDCODE projects. So definitely nothing "consumer".

    Hmmmm....I don't really own any cameras worth mentioning because that really isn't my thing. I'm more of a post guy.

    No camera any more... just sold my DVX package. Doing all post now (DVCProHD mostly). I'm gonna dump the Intensity Pro and jump up to an ioHD or MXO2 sometime, not sure when.

    Not enough room here to list my gear. The list I provide my insurance company is 37 pages of an Excel spreadsheet.

    Is there a limit on how long posts can be on these forums?

    Out of courtesy to others, I would certainly hope so!

    Kit List

    I've got so much hardware that I need 2 aircraft hangers just to store the information where all the kit is. When I mobilise for a shoot I use 15 articulated lorries and 4 hovercraft, also I use so much electricity that I had to build my own power station. :)
