Re: HVX200 Record to Harddrive W/O P2 Card?

It may be a good idea anyway. You could continually record over the same card while streaming out the firewire port, constantly rewriting over the card every 8, 16, 32 minutes (depending on your format setting). Even an old smaller card could be used for this. That way if your firewire connection was knocked out which could easily happen, you wouldn't miss anything while you re-connected the cable. Maybe Panasonic could devise a way for a sure lock firewire cable to connect like a BNC connector or the Videonics firewire cables to avoid this possibillity. Most I/O connectors on cameras butt into the camera at 90' so the cable sticks straight out. Perhaps the jack could be positioned so the cable runs along the body a bit and it could be clamped a few inches past the connection point.
