What do you like better... Panasonic P2 Card or the Panasonic Firestore??? And why do you like it?????

I can't make a decision if I want to get another P2 Card or just buy the Firestore.

Cards are rock solid and can be dropped
and don't need batteries
and are smaller to pack
and have a better warranty

Unless its only for a studio setting.. go for cards

I agree with Richard. I have heard of few problems with P2 card where as the firestore is dependent on the things Richard mentioned as well as a good cable. I had some friends lose a whole shoot because of a bad cable. People who have had trouble free firestores love them though.

I, too, agree with everything that's been said.

Go back about 7 months or so in these archives and see the issues people were running into with the Firestore.

And in a few months you should be able to buy 64GB P2 cards - so not much need for anything else.

I agree with everyone else so far. The firestore was viable when they first came out and P2 cards were only 4GB. Today with 32GB cards and in the future with 64 and 128GB cards announced there is no longer a need to have to put up with more external bulk to pack around and connections to worry about.

Firestore rules!
Much longer recording times, much less expensive per GB, and not even a dropped frame in over 4 years.
I have two Hvx cameras and have never wanted or needed to use a P2 card.
