Not a bad idea. We'll have to give that some thought. Thanks.

Re: Content Management Utility doesn't work on Mac

The reason I posted earlier on log and transfer speed being fast was compared to my older Mac Pro. This was an Octo-Processor, gobs of ram and a 6Tb raid .... BUT....

I am now using a new Macbook Pro i7 and it is super fast!! I am getting just over double transfer speeds with the FS-100 and this is only going to a G-Drive via esata. Whereas my Mac Pro was 1:1 speed at best.

The new Macbook Pro's changed our entire workflow. We got rid of 3 Mac Pros and now edit on location.

Doug, what would have to happen for you to do a workshop in St. Louis, MO--what are your needs to do that?

Re: Content Management Utility doesn't work on Mac

Hi Galen,
I appreciate your interest, but it would be impossible to schedule any other cities this year. We are maxed out. There are several cities that we would have liked to have included, and St. Louis was one of them. Sorry about that. Maybe next time!

Re: Content Management Utility doesn't work on Mac

What kind of card reader are you guys using to get the FS100 files onto your Macs? I'm using a basic USB reader and it takes about 15 minutes to get all of the footage from a 15 GB card. Maybe that's normal, but it feels like forever when compared to my EX SXS card reader! Thanks!

Re: Content Management Utility doesn't work on Mac

In the back of my head, I'm thinking the speed of the SD card is the limiting factor, using USB 2.0 or 3.0, ESATA, or anything else won't help (???), USB 2.0 will always exceed the speed of the card (?????).

SD read speeds can vary quite a bit, but I've never come actoss one that's anywhere close to the speed of an SxS-G1a card. Typically (using my Nexto 2500 drive, which has both SxS and SD slots) my SxS cards transfer almost 5x faster than my SD cards.
