I am considering purchasing an HPX-500 camera and I had a few questions I was wondering if you could answer for me:

1. Can I use one of the FireStore portable hard drives with the HPX-500? And if so can I use it in conjunction with the P2 cards, all recording at the same time, for a back up?

2. Can anyone tell me about the quality of recording DV50 or some other SD formats. I heard that the SD recording was not as sharp as some other camera, is this accurate?

Don't believe you can use both at same time....

SD recording is fine... but I strongly recommend DV50 over DV25

Yes you can record to the P2 and Firestore at the same time. I have done it with a FS-3.

You will need a FS-100 to record HD and DV 50. Standard FS-4 will record DV. The HDV Firestores are specific for those cameras.
