I like the 85mm f1.8 on full frame.

Anyone writing images to Blu-ray discs as part of you backup strategy? If so, which size disc?
I currently backup to multiple external hard drives. Previously, before 25+MB RAW images, I also burned images to DVD. A couple years ago I started burning to 25 GB Blu-ray, but I've fallen behind. I've also had write issues with some discs failing. Grouping images to fit 25 GB discs can also be a pain. It's now cheaper and easier to get another external drive, like the WD My Passport to use as a backup. But, will a hard drive only strategy be reliable in the long run?
There is something about write-once media without moving parts (like Blu-ray discs) that intuitively seems to be more reliable for long-term storage than moving-platter-based media. But, I've had issues with burning discs on one drive that can't be read on another (even after finalizing them). This leaves me with the fear that I could burn a bunch of discs on a drive that might drift out alignment only to find out years later that I can't read them.
I would like to incorporate the cloud, but last year (2014), I accumulated over 33,000 RAW images that consume roughly 950 GB. A TB/year can of data on the cloud can get expensive quick.
he is a C programmer? and a crazy assortment of lens.
ok I give up
Enough already. Next we will have to deal with...
I am going to the bathroom to poop. What should I bring?
Wow! I didn't realize there are still these kinds of people in the forum. Did you just have a very bad day? Anyway, peace to you sir. There's no need to be rude. An honest inquiry doesn't hurt anybody. If you don't like it, then move on to the next thread. No one is forcing you to read or comment.
Anyway, thanks to those who are very much willing to give their free advice. You are all very much appreciated.
