200 and Mac lap top
I have been reading this P2 forum in anticipation of getting the 200. So please correct me if I am wrong.
I can connect the HVX200 via firewire to my MacBook Pro and record 720p directly to an external firewire drive. I need to get the card slot to firewire adapter so there are two fire wire ports. Does the drive need to be Fw800. Can you loop thru a Fw400 drive instead of the FW card adapter? Does this method tend to drop frames? Does it need to be a FW 2-drive array to work? Does this work with 1080p settings? Does it work with the Panasonic provided capture software? or Only using capture now with FCP (what version – I have FCP5.1)
Thanks for the info, as I enter the brave new world of tapeless video..
