P2 card/SDHC
on Jun 16, 2009 at 4:05:19 pm

I was planning on purchasing a couple Panasonic 32 gig SDHC class 6 cards and using the Dual Adapter for my HVX200a rather than buying the actual P2 cards...

Thoughts?
I'm new with solid state recording so any help would be appreciated.

They won't work, you have to buy P2 cards for those cameras.

No idea what adapter you are talking about but even if there is one that converts the SDHC cards to a PCMCIA form factor, it would still not be P2 compatible.

FWIW - a P2 card has (4) SD cards that are RAIDed (is that a word?) together to give the record speed needed for handling the data rates of the HD formates. HDV cameras can get away with the small cards because HDV data rate is less the standard DV data rates, a 1/4 of DVCProHD.

Yeah there are PCMCIA to SDHC card readers but that's a whole other universe from a card that somehow makes SDHC into P2. I'd love to have one but I've never ever heard or seen one and doubt one will ever exist with Panasonic's proprietary ownership of the P2 technology.

Hi,

The fact that there are four memory sites within a P2 card on a Raid 0 array controlling Metadata, parity checking and plain old data management, the SDHC by it self is not going to work.

And Noah, there are two alternative sources for P2 cards, Maxell and FujiFilm.

Best,

Jan

So it sounds like the SD memory card slot is for adding scene files, etc, and not for capturing video. Durnit! The HPX-170 manual is unclear about this.

Just scene files. Not footage. Panasonic g has prosumer cameras that can write to SD CARDS
