I just received my FireStore, so now I don't have to use tapes at all. :)

You'll be happier in the long run if you tape too, as back up. Several MONSTER catastophies avoided for me that way.

I just got the standard $740 FS-4 HD model from bhphotovideo.com, not the FS-C which was $400 more. The standard works just fine with 24f .m2t files (tested it last night), and I don't need the more expensive models' transcode to Quicktime because Vegas handles .m2ts natively with help from Cineform.

Camerapeople that record to Firestore, HDD, MiniDVD, flash memory and so on all come home with the problem of how to store the raw footage up on the shelf. Invariably their footage is recorded to some form of HDD, which we all know has a finite and ill-defined lifespan.

Those that shoot to tape simply place the raw footage up on the shelf. It's incredibly cheap, reliable and compact, and I for one quite like it. So what do you Firestore guys do - junk the raw footage and only keep a master edit of the event? On tape or DVD or HDD?
