What do my fellow filmmakers do about USB C?
Sorry if this isn’t the right forum – I couldn’t find the Hardware one!!
I wanted to see what you all do about USB C – I have multiple USB C devices which sell themselves as being awesome and superfast etc – ideal for filmmakers!
I have three USBC G Drives as main edit drives, plus a whole host of USB C rugged/portable drives… add to that USB leads for card reads etc and I probably have at least 10 devices that are ‘super quick’…
The problem is my iMac only has two USB C ports – and newer models still don’t have ‘a lot’. But USB C has one major problem as technology – you cannot get an expansion port.
So I have one port with one USBC drive on it, plus then I have a USBC to USB hub and all my lovely fast USBC devices are now running at the old USB speed – and no doubt having a bit of a bottle neck effect.
I’m first to admit I’m not the most tech knowledgeable – so please tell me I’m wrong!! What are my solutions here?
What do you all do about it?
