Anyone Seen/Heard Anything About DSR-DU1?

Supposedly this firewire drive-based DVCAM deck is going to be shipping in September. Anyone heard anything more about it, such as actual street date and price, etc?

Thanks in advance for any info!

Not a whisper. I intend to be one of the first to get it after the initial evaluations. I played with it at NAB and liked it there.

A key to its usefulness will be the availability of drivers for various editing systems. It just isn't another firewire drive I guess. Sony mentioned a special driver for Premiere but didn't know anything about other drivers.

I think I read somewhere that there will be Final Cut Pro support. Then again, I could have dreamt that. I'm with you, Mike once opinions are in, I'm getting in line for one. It's going to provide quite a breakthough in workflow.

There was a recent article about the Videonics equivalent (sort of an equivalent They have a new name now).

One of the issues raised (other than the fact that the unit did not work too well) was that, OK. Here you are with the wedding footage and you have to wait for more pictures, etc. from the Bride. So do you set the unit on the shelf and thereby lose the use of it until the video is complete or what?

My take on it is I'm happy to transfer clips to another permanent drive and reduce the wear on my camcorder transport by a factor of at least 2.

This is the first real stake in the heart of videotape as far as I am concerned. The three hour limit could as easily be 10 or 20 hours. Or it could be recording on replaceable, rotating optical media. The big deal to me is the reduction of the video into clips and making them randomly accessible.

This will reduce the editing task for my event videos by a large amount.
