Great!
Please let us know how it works.

Also, do you have to have a tape in the camera in order to use the firestore drive?

I am curious about using the DR-HD100 with external power from Anton Bauer power tap. It's always an issue using 14.4 v with many devices so I don't know if it would work or not. The stock DR-HD100 battery is a small lithium batt that snap into the back of the unit. Much like a cell phone batt does.

Have not tested the life yet.

I am also interested if DR-HD100 can be plugged into Anton Bauer's battery. The manual says nothing about it, but 90 min. of working time is just not enough for us. Other firestore drives can be powered this way though, so maybe there is hope.

Edit:

Ok, I found on Anton Bauer's website that they have a special cord and a special mount for the thing:
