I noticed that too. Great, we need more of these products to get the price down, hopefully.

FAT32 only allows you to record less than 4 GIG files. So a long non-stop event could be a problem, unless the drive splits the files automatically without dropping a frame.

I wish a third party would make one of these to work with the canon xh a1.

"Theoretically" this device should work with any HDV or SD camcorder with a firewire (i.Link) connection.

Apparently it offers 4.5 hours of continious recording. It must split the footage up into seperate files/partitions and spit the footage out as one continuous stream, probably using some kind of cache to prevent the dropping of frames.

It looks very cool! Can't wait to see how it fits onto a Z1...

Stupid question time: will this be compadible with Final Cut Pro? How do .m2t files convert into Quicktime files? Sorry - I don't know anything about portable hard disk recorders!
