I assume you've seen DVinfo's Firestore forum here?

I'm trying not to be offended by this this thread.

Is there something you are trying to tell us with this question Stefan?

No problem.

I was being a bit exaggeratedly sensitive.

Did you find anything? ... I would be interested as well.

With all due respect, this forum right here at DV Info Net is ALREADY the largest resource on the planet for FS-4 information... just look around for yourself and you'll see what I mean. Why not help us to make it better than it already is? This place can only be what you make it out to be. Just let me know what we're missing here and I'll do my best to deliver, but ultimately it's your own participation on these boards that make them become a good resource (or not).

I wanted to make sure I communicate this- DVINFO.net is an invaluable resource for myself and the productions I work on. At this point in my game I am pretty much just a 'taker' . Asking questions and waiting gleefully as others with more experience and knowledge answer them. Its really amazing, some times I feel like I should be paying top dollar for this kind of on-demand support for my problems and curiosities.

As I come more up to speed with digital production, and have information and experience that might be useful to others, I look forward to being able to share that with others and help broaden and contribute to the 'mutual arising' of the digital cinema gig.

As for now, in particular to the firestore drives, it feels like they are very new and unpolished technologies. The production Im working on right now has put a lot of financial faith in the FS4s' potential. I am working to crack into that potential. I am at a point where I dont even know what questions to ask, I just want to dive in- to read more, to become very proficient at what the drive is capable of, to be ready for the myriad issues that may arise.

The Manual is not sufficient, and it is not written up against actual user encounters (thus the brilliance of dvinfo).

I feel strongly that this thriving and amazing community will be better served, IS better served as its participants work to discover and share other resources: maintaining an influx of new, fertile, fresh information into the community's collective intellegence.

Now it feels like I did a rant of stating the obvious. sorry about that. The good news is, I had fun writing it. And it was sincere.

Thanks for pulling together all those reviews. As I looked through the list, though, the thing that struck me was that they were essentially non-critical - yet as can be seen from this users forum, the FS-4 has a considerable number of annoying flaws.

Back in January when I first encountered the FS-4 at the UK Video Forum show it seemed amazing that a gadget like the FS-4 was available at all. After a few months of use, however, I'd really like to sit down with the design team and sort out the features of a Mark 2 before Focus start tooling up. I wonder how some of those reviewers feel now?
