Your point on news outlets having no problem rerecording over source tapes really means nothing due to the fact news stories are temporary.

P2 is the ideal recording format for news outlets where re-using the original source media is a requirement. An average 90 sec daily piece does not require more than a maximum of 40 minutes of source footage.

In the world of commercia,features and broadcast long form programming the current expectations for a producer are for the camera masters to be an asset which can be used long term.

When the price of P2 drops to match tape stock I can foresee many tape based producers considering a switch. Ultimately it will be the clients and producers who must live with the perils of any new technology that will make the final decision regardless of any marketing hype that attempts to convince them to switch their current workflow.
