Iâ€™m not much of a video expert and have a question regarding the new Sony HDR-FX1 camera. Can anyone help me with it?
My project requires me to capture long segments of HD video on a stationary camera. Basically a timelapse project. I need to record the same scene for 48 days, 10 hours/day. Due to the scope of the project, I cannot afford to stand by the camera changing tapes every hour or even ever 90 minutes. I'd like to report the my camera setup twice a day. The first time to set it up, the second time to reset it.
What Iâ€™d like to know is whether or not there is any way to setup the Sony HDR-FX1 so that it records onto a large hard disk instead of a tape. Is there any way to stream digital information directly out of the camera and onto a disk?
If this is not possible with the Sony HDR-FX1, is it possible with any other camera?
