    You don't need an SSD RAID to get to the full speed a CFExpress is capable of. A decent single NVMe SSD will be able to outrun the card (they're in the 2500MB/s write range now). Of course, your...

    That's the gross one that has to be plugged into the power port on the camera though, right? I wouldn't touch that thing with a 10' pole.

    Same. You do not need a $15,000 Mac Pro to cut 4K. You don't even need it to cut 8K. Just transcode to ProRes and spend your money on fast storage.
