I've been filming events for a certain client since 2009 using the HVX200, and now need a good/practical alternative that can record long run times w/out stopping, at a minimum resolution of 720p.
Here's the shoot setup: Until now it's a 3 camera shoot, and the event requires about 1 hr 45 minutes of recording media, 720p/24pn (64g P2 card per camera).
The event is the ONLY thing I need the HVX for (just because it can record continuously w/out stopping)- The HVXs are becoming harder and harder to come by, and less cost efficient (especially the P2, when compared to something like compact flash, etc--I rent out all the gear). Can anyone recommend a potential alternative to this setup that can still record at least 40 minutes continuously? I would think there has to be one (with rental cost on par with a 5D, say), right?
