    Lots of 2012 NAB posts...I'll take a stab at this one as the appropriate spot for a question. Any cheap(er) usb3 P2 readers?

    No; only usb3 reader is the pcd30 3-slot unit.

    By NAB 2013 hopefully Panasonic will evolve away from the barbaric P2 card. They are dangerously becoming JVC, and if they don't learn they will be Ikegami in no time.

    So what is better than p2? A raided memory card? that is now available in the size of an SD card? Seriously, p2 is the best media out right now, followed by SSD follows by CF followed by SD.

    This is one of my major complaints with P2 is that the PCM-CIA standard was great in 2001, dead in 2012.

    I really don't understand why there aren't more cheap readers. The $330 AJ-PCD2GPJ is fine, but slow. The $2,050 AJ-PCD30PJ costs more than a used HVX these days, and you can pay 60% more to get a fully firewire card reader that doubles as a camera (HPX170).

    At least there is the Sonnet Quo which does P2, SxS & CF (plus SDHC) over eStata for $770.

    I really think there should be a FW800 , USB3.0 & Thunderbolt card readers for $300 or less, but I don't have too much hope.
    Where are all the S-VHS hipsters?

    I hammered them about that, I asked for a PCD3 (my name for a single-slot USB3 reader).

    Can't even imagine what would make P2 "barbaric." Could be the ironclad reliability, I suppose.
