So I'm thrilled that my new JVC 700 records right to SDHC so I can save so much time getting it on my computer, right? Not so much. My 12 GB of footage is taking 22 minutes to copy to my hard drive with my USB card reader (??). Is there such a thing a firewire reader? I can't seem to find one anywhere!
Just waiting on my 100 to arrive myself :-) But to answer the question - No. But I have had a chance to play with a couple of USB readers and compare to my CF firewire reader. The SandiskImagemate comes very close at 32 sec to copy a 1.1 gig video clip to my mac's internal drive. The FW reader clocked 27 sec for the same file. Both these tests done on a Sandisk Ducatti Extreme CF card. My old USB readers are now in the bin after clocking over 7 minutes for the same file!
