Is there a significant advantage of the CF recorder over a Firestore Hard Drive type device?

Yes 1. No moving parts. 2. Swappable memory. 3. I believe it weighs less.

yes!

Yes the CF has its advantages It is smaller and weighs less and no moving parts (hard drive) less power consumption . If you have alot of CF cards you can shoot alot, and not have to dump the HD like on the firestore

its faster to boot up and is faster to work with I have both the MRC1 and the firestore pro hd and man do i like the MRC1 for what i do. i record in SD for broadcast and the avi files are easy to work with in FCP.

I want to get a bracket that will put it out to the side i see B&H has one. so i can use the shoe for lights

Kirk, did you ever think about purchasing a handle bracket of some kind and mounting the MRC1 on your cameras handle instead of your hotshoe. By doing this might very well make your camera better balanced than mounting it on the side or up front on your cameras hotshoe. I'm not a hug fan of side camera brackets, because they have always seem to throw off my cameras balance one way or the other.

I have 2 different ones which work great.
HDV Handle Bracket | VFGadgets.com

and

Delvcam | DELVG10801 Handle Bracket for Sony HDV | DELV-G1080-1

I prefer the VFGadgets HDV handle bracket, because it has a smaller form factor. It should be perfect for the MRC1.
If you are running cables of any kind then the DELCAM bracket is better because it has cable management on it.

I use them currently to mount my large Sony HVL-LBP LED light on my cameras handle and this keeps my rig balanced very nicely. I'm looking at picking up a couple of MRC1's and mounting them on my camera handle.

handle bracket

micheal

It looks good the only problem is that it would cover the vtr controls on the XHA1!

The FSC comes with a cradle to mount the Firestore. I built a simple bracket that uses two velcro straps to hold it on top of the handle of my A1. The FSC comes with a cradle mount. When I have the FSC turned on I use the playback and VTR controls on the FSC. This is one of the major advantages of the FSC and CF recorders. You don't have to rewind tape.

Any one can upload some test file.
I would like to try a native file in my Premier CS3. I wonder if CS4 or CS3 would handle this native m2t file. Even more if the time code could be retained. I heard that Premier just handle m2t file time code from sony cameras.

Thanks kevin, that looks neat, although i think id prefer it on the handle.
I ordered mine today with 2 transcend 133x 32gb cards.
I hope they are good enough.

I gotta say the way you have the recording unit on the back makes it look like the unit was made for the XHA1.

Very cool.

I see lots of you have used this unit with the Canon A1 but is there anybody out there who has used it with the H1? and if so is it the same to set up as the A1?


Regards

Mick

Can anybody with a PAL type XH-A1 confirm that the Sony HVRMRC1 works with 25P footage?
