WFT-E5A Wireless Adapter Question & etc.

On the Canon website, in the 7D specifications, it states the following in the recording media spec:
"CF Card Type I and II, UDMA-compliant CF cards, via external media (USB v.2.0 hard drive, via optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E5A)"

Could this mean that we could bypass the CF card and send the video to a NTFS formatted hard drive while recording?? Thus getting around the 4GB limit?


Could all of this be a null point IF the sRAW video rumors are true? Because we'd HAVE to have larger than 4GB files for sRAW video. Right? I guess they'd have to come out with some sort of hard drive attachment where the wireless transmitter would normally attach to handle the datarate and filesizes. Thoughts?

The USB hard drive needs to be formatted FAT32 for it to work.
