That brings up another question: The Panasonic specs say:

I use Vegas Pro 8, and I have a fairly fast terminal, so I should be able to edit the files. The "capture" remains a question. The Pasasonic specs lists that the camera has a IEEE 1394 firewire. Am I correct in assuming that I can download the HD files from the P2 card in the camera to my computer using the firewire, or does firewire only work with Mini DV (SD) video?
