What's one of the best parts about being a video professional? All the cool gear! In this weekly series, Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman team up to discuss the latest and greatest equipment for video production and post. They talk about the newest cameras, like the Blackmagic 4K, pocket cinema cameras, and GoPros; accessories and adapters that will make your shoots run smoother; and the great tech being invented every day. And because they keep both cost and quality in mind, you'll never have to worry about blowing your budget or compromising production value. Come back every Friday for a new tip.

- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. - And I'm Robbie Carman. - And this week on Video Gear Weekly, we're gonna talk about a very real-world problem and something you can do about it. Now, the problem is that you accidentally erase a memory card or you try to plug a drive in and it's not formatted correctly, and maybe you re-formatted it. Or you try to transfer something and it takes forever. I see people make bad decisions all the time when it comes to working with video files, 'cause they're so big, you start rushing, you make bad choices, you get sloppy.
- Well, of course Rich, there's sort of the front of this that we're not going to cover this week, and that is good backup and archiving routines and that kind of stuff, so hopefully if the situation ever happens to you where you can't get something off a drive or you need to recover data, you already have it somewhere else so that's not a big deal, but there's always gonna be times where you're gonna have a drive or a memory card or something like that that just goes a little wonky on you and maybe somebody accidentally erased it, that's never happened to anybody, right? - Never, ever. - Never, ever. So we want to show you this week some tools that are cross platform, that are gonna allow you to perform some data recovery.
Now, there are a lot of services out there that advertise that they will recover your data, just send us your hard drive and pay us a thousand dollars to do it. You know, and their services obviously have some value for some really higher level stuff, but there are a lot of tools available sort of on the desktop use, consumer level, that will give you a good fighting chance to recover data if you need to do that.
