Peter, have you looked over our forum on tapeless recording? The HD is not interchangeable, so it may not meet your requirements. I don't know of any units that allow users to change the HD though. But it will only be a matter of time before someone adds that feature.

Doesn't the FS-3 allow for interchangeable, hot-swappable drives?

Ive been using the MCE quickstream for a few months now and let me tell you its a whole new world. Zero dropouts and no tape changes for a good day of shooting. Then you take it home and its already digitized, you can even start editing right off the drive.

I still however drop a tape in and record in LP mode as a failsafe backup, it also gives me a second master to tuck away somewhere safe.
