Does anyone have any experience with a product called the Firestore? It’s a hard drive that connects to your camera so you don’t have to capture to your computer… you just move the files over… it looks like a HUGE time saver… wondering if they work well and if folks are satisfied with it.[/quote]
Yes, I have the FS-4 Firestore. It works great – it really does save a whole lot of time not having to capture the tape. Another plus is that you save wear on your camera’s tape heads if you go totally tapeless.
However, most would suggest that you also record to tape as well, just to be safe and for backup purposes.
Most cameras should work with it – there is a compatibility chart at their site.
I bought mine from ideoguys.com they currently have a great deal on a bundle (extra battery, camera mount, etc) right now.
