    its good to see Australian companies such as FOX and ABC Australia are in the know when using the P2 technology.

    Also good to see the pressure of Australian companies forcing down the price in the US

    What about us in the UK don't the BBC use P2?
    or Australia for that matter

    Could somebody post any links to these kind of adapters?
    Or even better: cheap pc-card->usb adapter that could be used either with laptop or desktop.
    I'll have to change my old powerbook to mbp very soon...

    There will likely never be a "cheap" USB adapter. But there is a cheap expresscard adapter, and a cheap PCI-bus adapter. There are non-cheap USB and FW800 adapters.

    Is the firmware update available for the older HVXs to handle the bigger cards?

    It is supposed to be released when the 16gig cards come out.

    Thanks. I guess the only other concern will be; can the pcmcia drive of your computer handle the increased card size? Or the duel systems adapter for that matter. Many of the HP notebooks had TI drives that couldn't even handle the 8G.

    I am a little dissapointed that Panasonic still hasn't adressed this with their own adapter. We shouldn't need to use the camera as the primary offloading device and the P2 store is cost prohibitive especially if you do not require its functionality.

    Its good that P2 prices are falling but I'm still in the hunt for 4gig cards. I'm sure rental houses will eventually sell them. I guess a good price would be half of what an 8 cost now; even used.

    Good point, but I think I red DuelAdapter is working with Panasonic on his adapter. Not sure though.
