HPX170 footage download directly to laptop?

I am about to borrow an HPX170 for a shoot that requires a more compact camera. I need to keep the kit as minimal as possible and was wondering if I can hook the camera directly to a laptop and use it to download the P2 cards?

Thanks

David

Yes. But you need the P2 drivers (available for download). You probably also want to download the manual.

Yep. Connect via Firewire if using a Mac, USB if using a PC. You will need to select which mode you're using in the appropriate menu.

Depending upon your computer, software, and framerate, you can even shoot and record directly to the laptop.
