Sony FX7 + Harddisk

I sometimes have problems with my dv-tapes, that the recording, or not good.

Is there a possibility to add a harddisk to the sony-fx7 to record directly on the harddisk, and then plug the harddisk to the pc, to capture the recording that way with studio12 or so.

Kind regard,
Joeri Grandry

Re: Sony FX7 + Hard Disk

Sure. The DR60 (HDD) or MRC1k (CF Card) recorders will both work with the FX7, as would any number of tapeless recorders out there.

Here's a section that discusses all of them:

If you mean just a regular PC hard disk, no. They're just dumb storage devices, like empty buckets, that wouldn't know what to do if you plugged them into the cam.

Re: Sony FX7 + Harddisk

Thank you for your answer.

This was what I was looking for.

What is the best system, the CF-card or the Harddisk
Are there so much tapless recording devices possible.

And I really didn't meant de regular pc harddisk :)

Re: Sony FX7 + Hard Disk

I highly recommend the MRC1k CF card recorder. It's the most economical solution out there and will integrate seamlessly with a Z5 or Z7 if you decide to move up to one of those later. It comes with a shoe for mounting on a cam like the FX7, as well as a short firewire cable. While the operation isn't quite as streamlined as with a cam that has external device control (a pro model like the Z1, V1, Z5 or Z7), it works fine and is very hassle-free and reliable.
