A big step in the right direction, quicker than I expected. Bet it costs more than my Mac Pro, and it's just a demo, but a good move regardless.

It's great for the people who use laptops on Mt. Everest Base Camp cause hard drives fail there all the time...

Nnovia is selling a DTE firewire DV/HDV recorder that takes interchangeable hard drive modules or 16Gb solid state modules. The price is 1500-2200 dollars, depending on whether you want component input or not.

I still prefer tape, as I've had too many close calls and bad experiences with tapeless aquisition. However, large flash drives (i.e. no moving, overheating parts) are worth a look. Tape is bound to go anyway.

Look at the size of that thing, it's 128GB and not much bigger than a PCMIA card. Gone is the heaviest item of any portable solution. Gone also is the requirement to provide cooling and large power requirements as well. (How about a couple of AA batteries?)

Image the possibilities of onboard storage in the future, for instance: An onboard tetrabyte raid to capture directly to HDSDI. Plug the camera into a pc and it transforms into raid station. No more capture or digitizing.

I'm getting ahead of myself.

I would be willing to bet they are using this to build their product:

I found SSD product online for the following prices:

16 GB for $295 or 32 GB for $408

More expensive than hard disk BUT
a) It's smaller & lighter and less power hungry & no altitude worries.
b) It still greatly undercuts P2 & SxS. But then, anything does.
