Re: filmscanners: Laptop configuration
I scan and edit on different machines, primarily for performance. The
machines are connected via a LAN. The scanning machine saves to the hard
drive of the editing machine, over the LAN.
If you are not connected via a LAN, then you need a way to move large
(large!) amounts of files between the two machines. CD-R or CD-RW is
easiest and cheapest. Jaz is useful, but expensive. Zip is really too
small. I have all three and use the Jaz the most, but at $100 for a 2Gb
disk, you can't have many.
