I'm also at the point where I will need to buy P2 cards. I'm going with the E-series. I originally planned on going with two 32Gb cards, but (according to B&H prices) I can get a 64Gb and a 16Gb card for only $160 more. That's an extra 16Gbs ($409.95 value) over the two 32Gb cards.

the P2 works fine with my specs mentioned above, but I have some sort of freeze glitch once in awhile. I have to do a hard reboot when it happens. Very annoying. I hope with the next update it'll fix itself.

As for the P2 cards, I think I'm gonna go with a 64, I just worry that I waited too long now to buy one and that it'll be on back order forever.

Or you can just use the camera itself to offload cards, connecting to the computer via USB or firewire, as a reader. That's free, but it ties up the camera during the offload process.

Or you can connect the camera directly to a hard disk and offload to the hard disk. That is also free, but ties up the camera during the offload process.



Barry, how long does it take to offload the p2 cards using those method?

Going direct to a hard disk takes about 30 seconds for each gigabyte, same as going through USB to a computer. If you turn on write verification during the hard-drive-offload process, that doubles the time, so it takes 1 minute per gig.
