    The Canon XH-A1 doesn't have HD-SDI outputs: for that you have to get the XH-G1 for around $7K MSRP. And while the HVX200 was revolutionary the memory card design and price has been a significant stumbling block for many, plus that was unnecessary given advances in CompactFlash at the time the camera was being designed. Maybe someday Canon will release an inexpensive HD camera using CompactFlash and blow both Sony and Panasonic out of the water in terms of memory card pricing - but Sony is already there with the new Z7U. Both P2 and SXS memory are unnecessary for standard HD video recording, and only benefit users slightly for a huge increase in cost.

    But I digress. By all accounts Edius is great for working with the HVX200... :-)

    I will wait for this year's NAB before drawing any conclusion. I am sure Panny is "sweating" away in their labs right now. All of Panny's products so far are revolutionary in their design - they don't follow any competitor's products (the "me too" concept). So - can wait for NAB to see what product will Panny unveil to succeed the HVX200.

    If you want a "cheap and good" solution - try this ... Canon XL-AH - tap the HD-SDI output - it will blast HVX200 lightyears away :-). It might be aging - but, the SDI port output is so sharp ...

    I've tested both the Panny HVX200 and the Sony EX1 and the latter is clearly a better camera in practical terms, especially for long-form recording. The HVX has nice colors and a good recording format, but lacks detail to an extent which is obvious by comparison to the Sony. The Sony yields more real resolution with better depth of field and more low light sensitivity, costs less per hour of recording capacity and transfers footage faster to a computer. The long-GOP recording and rolling shutter result in some compromises, but no more so than Panasonic's low-resolution sensor and over-priced, outdated P2 memory.

    Panasonic should respond with an AVC-intra camera but that won't help much if they can't come up with a higher-resolution sensor, which they don't seem to have even in their expensive cameras. People who like the look of footage from the HVX may not be impressed by the EX1, but it still puts the pressure on Panasonic to come up with a significant response.

    P2 cards by Fujifilm - let's see how much they are going to charge ... I am not that hopeful that you will see a price war erupting. P2 cards and SxS are premium products.

    P2 cards hold 4 SDHC cards inside that are ZERO DEFECTS - meaning they are the A++ top of line chips - cream of the cream chips. You can't buy any zero defects SDHC anyway in the consumer market.

    I don't have internal details of the SxS cards - but the price per gigabyte are about the same.

    SxS was developed in cooperation with Sandisk.

    And Fujifilm has announced that they would start selling P2 cards starting this quarter.

    That depends on whether you want professional video cameras like HDX202 or the normal consumer video camera & still cameras?

    For the professional range - I use SENSYS (www.sensys.com.sg).

    For the normal consumer stuff - I use CATHAY PHOTOS (www.cathayphoto.com.sg)

    Fukly,

    Everything has its pros and cons ... assuming that Sony Super Duper HDDD 3000x6000 whatever comes out at a bottom price, you want to buy it? Think again ... You think your editing station has the horsepower to edit that video? You got to pay and pay (again) to upgrade that hard-disk, upgrade that CPU, whatever ... :-)).

    Then - you wait ... Zzzz ... for the consumers to play the catch up game. Because there are no devices out there that can play your super duper high res HD video.

    I think this present HD is good enough for the next 10 years ...

    i read that SxS has been produce by 3rd party such as kingstone etc... or it just an issue.. the day will come when SxS or P2 will be so cheap..i just have to wait a bit longer to 'taste' what u guys talking about ;) hope by that time sony will not come out with a new FULL-FULLY SUPER HD 3000x2000 res and a new format of *.MXZ perhaps ;)
    i've bought 2 FX1 2 years ago n been dreaming of editing in a new HDV format.. the burner has not been produce yet in indonesia... n now have to face that it launch FULL HD with the card..oh gosh! i wonder if i could swap my fx with the ex ;) sony u r very tricky...should've told us before we buy the FX1.. should have told us the Full HD is coming...HDV seems like a trap.
    lucky u tingsern ;)

    Gosh - Flash XDR box is not cheap ... US$4995 !!! I think I better stick to P2 cards then.

    I can get 4 32GB P2 cards for that price - enough to keep me happy recording on my HVX202 for nearly 4.5 hours (at 720p - 25PN).

    P2 Gear costs US$4,000!!! Ahem ... forget it. Rather carry a notebook to do that task instead.

    I read that the P2Store HDD has a specialised controller - has an accelerometer that allows the hardware to sense if the P2Store is falling and actually parks the read write heads before the P2Store hits the ground. Whether the controller is part of the HDD or outside - nobody knows. That's the problem.

    Another issue is the 15 partitions - each partition is 4GB. Not sure whether putting a larger HDD will allow the P2Store to take advantage of it. It copies data in multiples of 4GB ...

    They want you to buy the cards, obviously, that's why the P2 store devices are so small in size. I'm sure they can pop in the 512GB (the one tingsern mentioned) if they really wanted to...or better yet, the 250GB, which are only ~$100 right now
    Dave,
    This is the unit I was talking about to use with the Ex1.

    You can use it with any camera with an HD-SDI output.

    I think Panasonic would prefer if you buy the P2 Gear.

    It lets you offload cards, review clips, and a whole lot more. It has essentially unlimited capacity because it allows you to plug in external USB drives -- in fact, it can power them, too. It also does away with the idea of creating one partition for every card you offload, it creates a folder for each card instead.
