I love it. We have them available but we don't have them in stock????

I guess he meant, we carry them but we are out of stock till next week!

I made my own battery since everyone is out of stock on these. I called focus and they said the same thing. I like having the newest stuff but sometimes you get... Sorry, we are on back order! Good luck with the battery search!

Hope that helps.

With my laptop, a newer dell pent M class it takes approximately 20-25 minutes to transfer 3 hours.

Jon..

I purchased one of those batteries from that store, already had the connectors and a UK charger, though the post was a bit steep at $32 !!!! But here in the UK those cells are about $4-6 each so was well worth the purchase..The only thing I'm missing is the gender changer extension lead, but I guess I can make one up !!!

The gender connector will be male. The firestore has a female connector.

Hi John,

You can use any DV camcorder with FS-4. I am not aware of any at this stage that do not work with.

Hope that helps,

Matt

Douglas, any doubts now about the benefits of frequenting this community? Ever had a staff member for the product in question reply as quickly in a public forum.

Matt,
I don't have a personal need for DTE capability right now (very languorous shooting requirements), but I must say, my esteem for your company just went up tremendously.

thanks

Thanks Matt,

I purchased fs-4 and have been using it with pretty good success with my zr25. Sometimes however it does not seem to get the handshake and it will not work in sync with the record trigger on the camera. Reboot sometimes helps, sometimes not. Is it my cable?

Regards,
John

Hmmm...could be your cable. Have you contacted Focus tech support? They can be contacted at 408-370-9963 or support@focusinfo.com.

You can use the GL2 without a tape inside. I capture right onto my computer hard drive without tape. I am also looking for a good portable storage device for my GL2.

FS-4 Pro Crashinig Windows Explorer

Everything appears to be set up right, drive shows up as it should but as soon as I double click on it *crash*. This is killing me as I'm so excited to have gotten it today and now this.

Running Windows XP Pro, Dual AMD's, 2 Gigs Ram, and all should seem right with the world. Got the firewire hooked up to the correct port and the screen does say " Connect Computer Then Enable Bypass Success "

Could use some advice here.

Thanks;

- Ray

Hi Raymond,

Hmmm, have not seen that before. Have you successfully connected other Oxford 911 based FireWire devices to your system such as FireWire drives? Also, try this...follow the steps to put FS-4Pro into HD mode (when you see Success) and then connect it to your computer.

Hope that helps,

Matt
