Lots of professionals in the fields of photography and filmmaking have learned a very hard lesson while shooting with digital cards or hard drives instead of with tape. Tapes are hardy, but digital files are not! I always tell my students that you must follow the rule of “triplicate” when filming with cameras like Canon DSLRs. Triplicate refers to the fact that there should always be three copies of your digital files made as soon as possible.
