Here's someone who doesn't understand a basic P2 workflow. Tape is not rock solid. Tape will not last for 30 years. Tape has dropouts. Tape can be chewed by the camera, deck or your dog. Tape is sensitive to all sorts of external conditions (weather, temperature, humidity etc). P2 is not. P2 is everything tape is not. The only thing you have to do is to think out of the square. Flash memory doesn't get "zapped" by some sort of voodoo magic. And if you are worried about the reliability of your associated hardware, you should buy quality stuff. After all you will save a great deal of money by not being forced to buy a new deck. And service it. Or the camera. And buy tape. As for archiving, who talked about tape? That's NOT the way of doing it. For more information you'll have to wait for NAB, you'll be very surprised. Anyway, we don't live in a perfect world, you can't make everyone happy, but if you plan to go to film, you should plan what direction you will take 5-10 years from now...
