Hoodman P2 card coming up?

I've heard this morning from my video rental house that Hoodman is working on P2 cards for the HVX 200.
should be release by NAB at prices 30% lower than Panasonic.
can anyone confirm this?

----------------------------------

Admin Update 06 Feb. 2008: Hoodman Corporation has cancelled its P2 card project.

I hope for affordable P2 cards, because IMO Panasonic is Charging too much, by this time they should be cheaper... I don't think an 8GB should cost $700.

Panasonic recently lowered the price of 8Gb p2 cards to $700.00.

I just bought one for $650.00

This is fascinating and welcome news, especially if this truly adds to another channel of getting P2 media.

I'm working in the Panny booth this year and will make it a point to get with the Hoodman people and see what info I can gather. Maybe they'll let me take a demo card (if they have any) over to our Panny display area and try one out. At any rate, I'll be reporting back whatever I learn.

Nothing is available as yet.

If you want to speak to someone, talk to Lou Schmidt, VP of Marketing.

I checked out the Hoodman P2 competitor (well the info on it at the booth). It is called the RAW-H2 (or something to that effect) and will composed of a single solid state card inside instead of the Panny 4 SD cards currently inside he P2...they claim it will be faster and cheaper

When I passed by the booth I asked to take a working sample back to the Panny Prodcution area where all of "us" consultants could have put it through it's paces; the answer was that they weren't ready for any testing yet. To be sure, somebody from the Panny consultant network will be doing this (if not myself) as soon as possible.

Is that how they really are building the current P2's? Then why the heck don't they let us record to SD cards just like a P2 card? I'd love to be able to swap in a 2-4gb sd card for only 30-60 bones a pop.

Anyone have an idea of how much these cards will retail for?
