Hey Chris,

I think you're confusion comes from the fact that DVCPRO HD is 100 mbs, which is 100 mega BITS per second... 8 bits to a byte and you're looking at only 12.5 mega BYTES per second (MBs), which is well within the range of very nearly all HDD's on the market these days. And that's only for the full rez/frame rate of 720p/60 or 1080i/60.

Also, as for the tape drive, Jan (from Panasonic) and many others have commented both here and at DVINFO.net, that the tape materials and heads required to read/record DVCPRO 50 and HD are both too expensive and too large to write to Mini DV tape in a cam this size. In fact, I think I've seen it that the 16 pairs of heads required to write DVCPRO HD to tape are around $6K cost for Panasonic...
