When you capture to hard disk natively regular Sony HDCAM footage, using now say a JH-3, how much storage does it take up in your experience?

See, the HDCAM specs say 135 Mb/sec, 8bit, 3:1:1 sampling (whatever that one is). BUT... does it really capture natively to hard drives at 135 Mb/sec, or does it transcode via the SDI to 4:2:2 uncompressed 440 Mb/sec or higher?

Thanks for your help!

If you have an xpri then you can record the compressed HDCAM codec.
Otherwise you will record the HDSDI stream from the player.
