XL2 PAL Direct Hard Disk Recording!


The Canon Europe website anounces:
"In sync Both Rec Run and Free Run SMPTE time code is supported. 2 built-in phantom powered XLR jacks and a BNC jack for monitor output is provided. An IEEE1394 connection allows direct hard disk recording.

Hopefully you can switch an 2,5" Firewire harddisk like the :

to it.

For me direct hard disk recording means recording directly to an IEEE1394 Harddisk without using an laptop.

Whats your opinion?

Hello Thomas,

It's not just recording to a hard disk that matters.

It's recording *edit ready* files to a hard disk. This is what matters.

Currently there are three options available: FireStore by Focus Enhancements, QuickStream by MCE, and the A2D by nNovia. You'll want to browse through our specialty forum "Direct-to-Disk (Tapeless) Recording Solutions" for more info.

Greetings from wet and muddy Texas.

I would also add that there is something very nice about being able to use the laptop display as a monitor and when used with DV Rack the other utility features it offers are a serious boon to production.
