LIfespan of a P2 Card?
on Oct 9, 2013 at 6:53:08 pm

Is there any documentation on the life expectancy of a Series E P2 card?

Assuming it formats and records, what other signs of failure should one be on the lookout for? Thanks!

What is the life span of the new E Series P2 Cards?

When recorded once daily, at full capacity, the new E Series cars are reusable for up to five years. Current P2 cards, including the A series, as well as the previously discontinued R and H series, have a record life of 30,000+ uses, which means it should last more than 80 years when filled with data and overwritten once a day.

How can you monitor your E Series P2 card's usable life?

The E Series P2 card's remaining usable life cycle can be viewed on a computer with the Panasonic's P2 formatter software (available for download on http://www.panasonic.com/broadcast). Additionally, a notification is given in the camcorder's LCD/viewfinder or the P2 recorder's LCD display as the card approaches the end of its life cycle.
