p2 card or m2 redrock adapter

ok, so I saved up enough money to purchase a 'new' accessory to my hvx! but im at a very hard decision. I can upgrade my 'film-look' and get a m2 redrock adapter (BEAUTIFUL FOOTAGE!!!) or I can get a 8GB P2 card. (right now i use tape and direct capture to my laptop...) But, I was thinking of getting the adapter and a 4gb p2 card. Tell me what you think, help me out!

Unless your workflow is a problem for you, get the adapter. The audience will never see your 8GB P2 card.

That said, if you can't get the shots you need without an 8GB card, get that!

I would buy a p2 card at first.
If you can get a 4gb p2 and a 35mm adapter together, that 's the best.

We're stuck in the same situation... We've decided to purchase the Redrock adapter and then wait for a 16GB P2 card or the FS-100. We had placed an order on B&H for the FS-100 and it took forever to ship. We cancelled the order and then my partner decided to just get a second HVX200 instead off ebay. So now we have 2 cameras and no P2 cards. We are becoming masters of the direct to capture method... lol. We've even recorded with Powerbooks in a backpack while moving around. For reliability purposes we still need the FS-100 or P2 cards.

I use a powerbook also, however, I HATE log and capture with a passion. So many things go wrong, and sometimes I have to even reboot my computer because my computer will stop recognizing the HVX as a device. How do you log and capture while the laptop is closed???

Michael I do the initial log and capture then close the powerbook (placing a piece of cardboard between the lid and rubber bands around the screen to keep it closed)... then I walk around and film. I have a 120GB HD on a 17 inch Powerbook so I can afford to capture some unnecessary scenes.
