HELP! p2 with MacBook Pro Question...

I am just about to buy the Panasonic camera and the MACBook Pro...unsure which OS to have that is most stable?

If anyone can walk me through what to get when using 3 different 8 gb cards, and the most optimal, safe way to get that info into my new MacBook Pro (and which operating system) and import safely the files via FCP would be great!!

I am new to FCP, and want to know enough in terms of that update as well, so I can make sure that my footage is archived for my editior for my doumentary project.

Also, if i have an external TB storage and want to dump that footage to another external TB storage as a back-up/archive of sorts, what's the easiest way to do that?

Anyone?

So appreciate any help/advice on this...Cheers.

You have to go into the firewire connect mode to copy the p2 cards to the desktop.

Detail your storage set up.

To have full effect from 3x P2 cards, youy will need the P2 store withe the MBP (so that you can continously offload cards while shooting)

This is because the MBP does NOT have a PCMCIA cardslot.

Cheapest solution is a cheapo PC with a pcmcia slot for offloading the cards.
