HOT DESK The Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch set a comfortable pace while filming at-home workouts, despite limited space and time

LEARN THE ROPES Owen’s years in the industry have presented plenty of challenges, for both him and the kit he relies on

an array of devices. USB C to C and USB C to A cables make it all the more convenient. With speed firmly checked off the list, what else was Owen looking for? “Size is key for me,” the filmmaker continues. “I have a 6TB hard drive I used to take on shoots. It’s not redundant by any stretch, but as far as everyday use goes, the Samsung is perfect. On Friday, we were filming in somebody’s house, so space was at a premium. My larger backup drive wouldn’t be an option there. Even if it fit, I wouldn’t want it because I’m having to work on unstable surfaces.

“This week, the Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch has been so fast, I can copy data as I go”

footage from it, but playback is perfectly smooth. Its performance elsewhere makes me believe I’d have no issue using it as a scratch disk in post.” Beyond computer use, the Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch is compatible with
