Profession drone pilots needs to consider that they will be generating huge amounts of data in the form of photos and video. High quality images, along with 4K and even 5.4K video takes up a crazy amount of space, and if you don't plan for it right at the start, you're quickly going to get swamped by it. I've been a pro-am photographer for years and know just how quickly gigabytes can fill up, but even that didn't prepare me for getting into drone photography and videography. Must read: Why you need to urgently update all your iPhones, iPads, and Macs - NOW! There's are two aspects to handling the photos and video once they have been captured onto high-quality microSD cards (I only use SanDisk Pro or Extreme Pro cards from reputable suppliers -- cheap cards can't handle the data speeds needed for 4K and 5.4K, and fake cards are hugely unreliable). The first is ingesting the data off the cards, and the second is storage.
