    Not too sure with only composite video in the quality will be that good. Unfortunately the spec sheet would not download. There are other devices like this with composite video in. The battery life is quiite short. On the other had the compact flash format allows for less compression of files.

      As long as you're going > 9 GB on the CF card, you'll have more storage than a mini-DV tape.

        Strange that they mention HDV on the DN70, but only have composite input (at least that's what's implied).

            Anybody knows what kind of compression codec they use to compress DV stream (if any)? I could use this in conjunction with my Canon XL2 :-). No moving heads to crash a portable HDD - unlike Firestore - which I found to be totally unreliable when used in the field (outdoors, in the wild).

              Ah yes now I have read it properly with a fire-wire connection and although it is another box to carry it should be fine. Plus you would be able to work with the files without converting them first as in the case of AVCHD. One other possible use is a backup recording. Most likely the price will dictate whether or not it will be successful. I have a similar device that only has composite in and that was quite pricey even when the dollar rate was more favourable than it is now.

                there are pics of both front and rear pics so that you can see all the jacks......They are not too big either, and work on standard 'AA" batteries, which make them more easy to power up, rather than having to buy special batteries.....I read all I could find and I cant wait to see what they will sell for, and the quality they will give...they can give rebirth to my 2 X3s and a great 2B I have.....they work so well, but out of league with DV cameras...still give great pictures...a pity I have to put them away, but these can breathe new life into them, and my XL1...yeh..still have one of those....

                  I can attach it to the Anton Bauer battery that goes on the back of my XL2 - makes it much better for balancing. But, let's see the price when it is released first ... and the video quality it is giving.

                  Mind you, I find my XL2 gives better picture quality than most of the cheap HD cameras ... so, it does not mean just because it is SD, the video will be inferior to HD.

                    Well for me I am still in SD land, so HD don't bother me.....plus I have seen some HD camcorders that SD make them look like primitive video....the XL1 may not be the best, but the quality is still good enough for news gathering, and low budget projects......I wanted the XL2, but did not feel like spending that kind of money, seeing that technology changes so quickly.....I was checking some tapeless cameras on B&H site....JVC GY-HM700...Think I may go for one. Was told the quality is good...haven't seen any footage yet though...but those recorders will really save me a lot of money, and let me settle until the technology stabilizes

                        I won't bother with anything that has a moving harddisk inside. I used to have Firestore - but, found it totally unreliable when used in the field. Flash XDR (Convergent Design) won't do for my XL2 - because it uses HD-SDI or HD-HDMI interface. Canon XL2 has Firewire DV interface only. Although Flash XDR could work with my Panasonic HVX172 (via HD-SDI interface) - I see no advantage since my HVX172 records on P2 cards (solid state) anyway.

                            Thanks ... looks interesting. Only one problem - battery needs mains charger to charge. That could be a problem for on-location filming in the wild. Will investigate that product.
