A recent videoblog discussing the new BlackMagic Cinema Camera  
touched on this (Philip Bloom).  The discussion was around whether to  
shoot RAW or ProRes.  He made a grimace and did the math around  
storage requirements for RAW vs the Quicktime codec, and concluded  
that it was up to the user, whether they wanted a shelf full of  
uncompressed media on multiple hard drives, or just *a* hard drive  
with a relatively small amount of (you know the Apple advertising)  
*visually lossless* files for the same volume of footage.  So  
shooting 100:1 (or whatever) didn't really enter into it, but 10  
drives versus 1 drive has some very physical consequences.
