I think the cards is a cool thing but the cost is great for backups. I'd rather use tape or an attached harddrive. The cost would be less and there would be physical backup of the media.
The footage form the camera is very nice. I really like the DVCpro50! Looks GREAT.
clive said:What I know is that it shoots a variety of formats DVCProHD (which is 720i as opposed to 1080), it also offers DVCPro50 and DVCPro25 and regular DV. It can offer all of these because it stores onto cards instead of tape, which also means faster digitisation.
Why the hell didn't they just invent a new tape format?
