Download The raw “Reverie” Clips from the Canon Site before midnight tonight…

At 12:01 a.m. E.S.T. Thursday 10/2 (Tonight) – the raw “Reverie” clips from the prototype Canon 5D MKII will be taken down from the Canon DLC site

Apparently the volume of downloads has been a bit staggering… I’m not allowed to let you know what the Canon numbers are – but I can tell you that I’m closing in on 1,000,000 visitors on this (my personal) blog since the initial “Reverie” announcement a little over a week ago….

With that said:  If (hypothetically) half of you downloaded those 3 clips (216.64 MB)  x 500,000 downloads – we’re talking about 103.30 TERABYTES of data being served in 6 days (17 Terabytes each day… or 208.95 MegaBytes per second over the past 6 days by the Canon servers.)  These are rough estimates to be sure.   But don’t forget that there are two other clips out there as well – the actual “Reverie” clip on the Canon DLC site – as well as the behind the scenes video on the SmugMug site… and those are not being included in these numbers…

During the initial release of the short film – there were close to four visitors hitting the site per second… 4 hours after the video’s release.  Needless to say – they have to “turn the spigot off” and I can’t say I blame them…   So you have a little over 6 hours left to download them off of their site…
