With pocket computers selling for $200 and small hard drives fairly cheap as well, can someone explain why a company couldn’t manufacture and sell a small portable device (like firestor) with a firewire input that would store live video from a cam for $300 to $400?
I think that is a great question. I was helping a friend of mine do an interview shoot and he was able to capture to tape and directly to his laptop at the same time. Not sure what software he was using to do the capture. You can buy a pretty powerfull laptop for less than a firestor. But I guess it has to do with supply and demand.
I don’t think thelaptop would be very usefull for a wedding shoot. 🙂
