Hi Steven. The current version, as of earlier this year, allows you to capture directly to quicktime 24, 25, 30p. I use one with a clients JVC HD110 this way on a regular basis. The update which is expected very soon (according to JVC) is the ability to do 60p QT capture. This was reliant on Apples release of FCP 60p support, which came out several weeks ago (after being demo'd months before at NAB) Currently frame rates all are supported in native m2f files, but the QT workflow is much faster for FCP and some other editing systems. Avid OMF is not part of the plan. Avid has poor support of HDV in any case. Transcoding or card based capture might have to be part of your workflow with Avid currently.

use with Sony EX1?

The drive used in the FS-4 will be a 5400RPM Hitachi TravelStar. We do not recommend changing the drive on FS-4 and it will void the warranty. The main reason is that we cannot guarantee the performance of drives other than the Hitachi TravelStar. We have seen some drives that were less than optimal based on their thermal and shock performance. I expect as capacities increase on the TravelStar line, we will probably add them to the line-up.

Hope that helps,

Matt McEwen
Matt, do you have a product that will work with the Sony EX1?
Thanks, Craig

You should be able to use a normal FS4Pro with the EX1, provided the EX1 is in "Standard Quality" mode, as in that mode it just outputs normal HDV (m2t) data.

In HQ, the EX1 doesn't feed anything out the Firewire port, so you need to use SxS cards.
