Is it just me or is the HXR-FMU128 Flash Memory kind of a rip off?

I mean, a 64 GB SDXC card is $120. 128 GB SSDs are down around $250. As far as I can tell, the Sony unit is just a repackaged SSD for 3X the price.

Am I missing something here? I feel like I would have preferred just a second SD card slot over this $720 add-on. And yet if I want redundancy, I have to buy it.

Thoughts?

Shop for a used one now before the demand goes up.

I agree, but I'll probably buy it since it looks like thats just what convenient redundant recording will cost in an FS100. The whole camera seems like a steal anyway so its hard to complain. Looks like street prices for the FMU128 may be as low as $640 some places, which isnt great but its something... if those sellers are reputable.

Back in 1993 that much hard drive space would have cost your $128,000 and I don't think you would have wanted to carry it.
