Copying "E" Series P2 cards onto a MacPro
on Nov 3, 2009 at 3:12:44 am

Currently we are taking our camera setting it on the desk and hooking it up to the MacPro via USB and copying files to the HD from the P2 cards.

This can be pretty cumbersome and I'm looking for a better way without lugging in the camera with all the gear attached.

I don't want to buy a $3,200.00 P2 store.

What are the alternatives?

Thank you in advance.

I believe this has been answered many times in this forum. A simple search will find your answer.

1. Duel Adapter
2. P2 reader from Panasonic or Sonnet (probably too much for your budget).
3. Connect an external FW HD directly to your camera.

Educate yourself on P2 workflow. There are many helpful resources to help you accomplish this.

I really like my PCD-35 5 card reader. It attaches to a Mac Pro via a PCIe card and is blazing fast. Might be overkill if you're not transferring a lot of cards at one time, though, but if you are, it's hard to beat.
