Hi Isabel,

The CinePorter is very quiet. The new design is even quieter. We are experimenting with different fan control algorithms and pulse type drive, as well as sound control for the HDDs. We will have the noise figures published when ready.

It has been said the the on-board mike on the HVX is not to be used for "serious" audio, just ambient. You may want to consider an external microphone that can be isolated from the camera.

I don't think there is an official published ISA rating for the HVX

The ISO rating for the HVX is around 320 according to Barry Green.

I just had to order a Firestore, even though the Cineporter looks like a much better product...

beta testing

Thank you David,

that's very useful. Am shooting a film in the Atacama desert of Chile in February and was so hoping to use the cineporter on my camera... wondering whether you would consider me beta-testing for you - the images would be amazing!... (just a thought)

and in the meantime thanks for the ISO rating Gunelik, do let me know how the firestore performs for you - just in case i need to look at it too!

thanks

Thank you Isabel for offering to beta test the CinePorter. I am sure that your project in Chile will be spectacular and I hope that you have a lot of fun doing it.
At this time all the beta testers have been chosen. I will add you to the stand by list.

David, not meaning to leave the subject of this thread, but is there any chance that Spec-Comm will use some of the experience and R&D gained in the development of the Cineporter and apply that to Firewire based HDV/DV camcorder drives? With the sales of the new Canons and the latest Sonys coming in, I bet your company could make a fortune going head to head with the Firestore products...

Eesh!

The only good news for me is that my P2 Store was definitely a worthwhile investment. I guess I'll be sticking with tape for long-form work... the Firestore doesn't seem 100% reliable.

Cineporter web site listing new features?

"Dual ruggedized interface cards"?
"Now with removable hard drives"?

Maybe my memory is off, but I thought the original design included only 1 interface card and a fixed drive.

If summer '07 is expected availability date, then manufacturing s/b starting soon, yes? I hope I have $$ left to buy one then.

If you go to the Spec Comm Cineporter site:
http://www.spec-comm.com/cineporter.php
you can see the latest developments and it also shows the expected release date when the wind blows the cover off the box in the animation on the page.

Isabel & others,

I can tell you from conversations with David that the engineering team is working both frantically and logically to "get it right" for the CP's first release. The redesigns that have taken place are all part of the pre-launch product development cycle. The end result is that we'll have a much more robust and logical device than what was originally planned.

As to the release date? I don't know myself, but I'd expect that more information should be forthcoming at NAB.
