As promised, here are a couple of potential candidates as options for as add-ons for a DSLR;
Focus Enhancements FS-200 http://focusinfo.com/fsh200.asp
Nexto Video Storage http://www.videomaker.com/article/14455/
Convergent Design NanoFlash http://www.convergent-design.com/CD_Products_nanoFlash.htm
Now, the FS-200 is not listed as supporting the Canon DSLR line and it’s not mentioned in the article that the Nexto could directly capture video via the eSATA input or the USB (for eSATA you’d need an adapter that plugged into the cardslot and had an eSATA plug on the end. I don’t think I’d want to try to capture video via USB.) However, the one potential ‘capture gold mine’ may lay with the NanoFlash as it does have an HDMI input. Therefore it may be possible to capture directly from camera to a portable harddrive or laptop via some funky cabling magic.
D0n, thanks for the info about the pentax’s. Yeah, that motion jpeg thing does present an issue.
