My bad, it was the Canon USA site

My bad, it was the Canon USA site. Did not look hard except for the price, and it was $999.00 not $1300.00. That is still a lot of cash. Even $650.00 is high. I have spent over $1000 bucks, plus my time, on DV Tapes and I feel like Iím dumping money/time down the drain.

Thatís why I asked about the FireStore C and that work flow.

Thanks

RC

Ron a Firestone will work great to create a tapeless work flow. The problem comes when using 2 or more cameras the same way. Where you would need 1-2 Firestores for each camera. My shoots tend to be 8-12 hours long.

Actually I would prefer the nNovia HD drives. As the drives are hot swappable. More of an initial investment. But cheaper in the long run. One drive per camera, and an extra disk for backup and swapping out if needed.

The MSRP for the HV20 has *never* been higher than $1099. The previous model HV10 briefly sold for $1299 but that was a long time ago. Remaining HV20 stock is currently selling for $650 to $750 until they're gone. The model replacing it, the VIXIA HV30, will list for $1000.

Avoid any dealer selling at prices higher than what I've posted here. Hope this helps,

HV20 would be very beneificial and practical

Michael , Thanks for the info, looking at it that way I could see why the HV20 would be very beneificial and practical. I always find myself dreading the tape upload. Im saving for the Firestore C.

Thanks again.

HV10 for XH-A1 Capture?

I have seen lots of talk about using a HV20/30 as a capture device. Does the HV10 have the ability to handle the 24F/30F footage as well?

Yes, works well for 1080i as well as Canon 24f and 30f.
