Hi other Robs, Although it


Hi other Robs,

Although it is on the expensive side, geared towards the professional market, Edirol has just come out with the F-1 Video hard drive recorder. I am going to try one out, hopefully with a Sony EX1 and a couple of older DVCAMS that we have. It takes firewire in and records directly to a hard drive and gives two additional XLR inputs for recording two channels of uncompressed audio that are synced to your video. These audio channels are in addition to whatever audio gets recorded through the firewire (which is compressed audio). It records in HDV or SD. Don’t know much more than that about it at this point, but it is just under 3 grand. It certainly eliminates tape capture and gives a better quality audio recording. By the way; Robs Rule
