XDCam and storage capacity
on Sep 12, 2007 at 1:56:24 pm

I'm looking down the road at my next camera and the EX and the full size XDcams look intriguing. One question I have is how much storage space the XDcam files take - for arguments sake use the HQ 35mbs setting.
I'm running an FCP system with a 1.6TB raid. I know they say the EX puts 50 minutes on a 16GB card. Does that mean my 1.6TB Raid would hold 5000 minutes? Is it that simple? Just seems improbable because I'm using uncompressed beta right now and it will hold 1200-1400 minutes. Someone please do some math for me!!
Thanks.
