when shooting tethered to the computer does everyone back up to hard drive at the same time? if so what hard drives best.

If your computer supports it a USB3 drive would make the most sense, for speed, but there's a big range out there, from full size 3.5inch to 2.5inch rugged drives. I guess the choice would depend on how much space you want. I have an external 2TB USB2 drive by iomega, but inside it's a Seagate drive. They all seem to be pretty reliable these days, as there aren't many manufacturers of hard drives left after they went through a phase of buying each other Smile

In the studio I shoot tethered to laptop hard drive in Capture One. I have cf card in back, so if there's a crash on laptop (which has happened...it's a dell), image auto saves to cf card.

I then copy images to external drives at end of shoot when at home and edit on desktop.
