I see it purely as a workflow issues, not a cost issue of P2. It just makes total sense to me, to be shooting with a lightweight, low power, no moving parts format. And It also makes sense to store footage for the long term on some kind of magneto-optical / optical storage, and all that I can see that's missing, is the workflow between them. Digital Photographers have this workflow sorted, but I'm sure they were sceptical at first. P2 is very much ahead of it's time and it may take a few years for the workflow to catch up, but it will. In the meantime, it means a camera that is probably about $10,000 less in price than the equivalent camera with tape drive would be, and we don't need to spend another $20,000+ on a deck, assuming we're happy backing up to optical media. To me, that's over $30,000 I don't need to spend to be up and editing high qualilty (assuming the camera and optics are as good as we hope) high definition video.
