    You can edit the mpeg files natively. And capture via firewire.
    There's said to be some minor advantages to converting to Canopus HQ in some scenarios: if you're doing a lot of manipulation of the footage (colour correction; lots of effects), the codec can handle the re-compression a little better. And you can get a little better performance using canopus HQ (slightly more real-time capability) since it uses less cpu processing.
    I don't think there's a lot in it. I was just surprised to find the I could convert to canopus HQ on a reasonably modern lenovo laptop "on the fly". I thought this would be something I'd need the HDStorm hardware for.
    Good luck!
