My take on that is that the hard drive will have to be cleared for new data every 7 hours so that you can tape again. That means that you have to put it somewhere. The best place might be to hard disk or onto a large capacity hard drive. Whereas miniDV’s you can through in the corner for use later, and they aren’t too expensive.

I believe that the compression that they required can cause difficulty when you want to load them to NLE for the final edit. Someone else will have to verify that.

I chose the tape vs. hard drive for those two reasons. I edit everything with Premier Pro 6.5. And throw the tapes in the drawer for posterity.
