and Compact Flash??? man that's about extinct.
for just 289grams more you can use a Panasonic SD1 HD1080i 3CCD camera that records on 4gb & 8gb SDHC cards.
thanks for posting... looks very cool for hobby or surveillance work but for any level of work other than that it's a novelty IMHO.

D1 res. is D1 res. and this offers full D1. Also, CF proved better is our tests for reliable media storage (at 6MB+/sec). Plus, the media is CHEAP. Maybe SDHC will be an option in the future when we find it more reliable for this specific use.
Yes, the Panasonic SD1 is nice, but its larger, heavier, and just a weeee bit more than the $500-$549 this will cost (including remote control, CF adapter, battery, etc etc).

I just questioned the use of the letters HD because HD has come to mean 720p, 1080i, & 1080p these days.
Very cool device though. What camera do you recommend for it?

We are testing a few Sony 3CCD cameras now, but no flight footage yet. By the way, your video in the other thread is VERY nice.
Maybe you can test our unit with one of your camera setups and give us your honest feedback. If you like, we can talk about it when I return to California from Germany next week. We should have a few more production samples in early March.
PS: I will change the title if it's an issue.

wow, I think a 3CCD camera with your unit would be great. What would really be good is the ability to remote mount the recorder in a location on the aircraft separate from the camera. This would be useful for shooting back at the aircraft from wing or tail for some really slick angles!
as far as the HD title goes I really think you might confuse people with the HD designation. Smart ones will look at specs and know but the others may assume they are getting a true HD recorder.... just a thought.
If you think about it contact me when you're back in town. I'd be interested in trying out your unit in some of my planes/choppers. Also would work great for recording video from my full scale Taylorcraft. I've been wanting to mount a camera on the struts and tail and go do some low level flying with it but am reluctant to bolt up my HD cameras out in the breeze.

Too big and heavy compared to what is already available in solid state form. You can get hours of video from a 4GB card so why would you need more unless you're using the device as your personal TiVO...
However, remember that the CF/PCMCIA port is a PCI IDE bus interface so almost anything (theoretically) could be connected remotely. We will include the CF card adapter, but that doesn’t mean you are locked in to using it. Experiment!
