    Solid state is the future for sure, but it's a few years away, like 5, for most of us I think.

    Pana have that great cam that takes p2 cards but the costs are huge, record 10 mins for 800 or thereabouts.

    Some pana eng cams are using lots and lots of cards.

    Solid state is the future - but at present emory costs too much, but it can only get cheaper in a moores law sort of way, I think, or maybe its bobs law for memory. I dunno.

    It just makes my head spin to think that they could one day produce a memory card not much bigger than a thumbnail that can hold 2 Terabytes of data!

    Makes 2 GB cards look pathetic.

    Coupled with a data transfer speed of 480Mbps, just one of these incorporated into a DV camera would produce something amazing. It could easily manage the data rates associated with HDV (and better), and would have a storage capacity equivalent to 40 miniDV tapes.

    Makes P2 look crap too....

    And then there's the other story shown at the above link; Via have come up with a fully-featured motherboard the size of a playing card!

    Its still gonna be years even in broadcast till dv is completely out.

    While there are still independant documentary film makers out there doing stuff on a show string budget - dvtape will live on.

    Even HD is still shot on DV anyways..

    Certainly the claims of that card is incredible - 2,048GB on a card? Amazing!
