HARDCORE GEEK SHIT EBC!! I been eyeing a Hard Drive video cam myself for future trips. How many minutes can it record?? And it looks really compact so you can put it in your hat and film the concert!! :lol:

lol not quite daigong XD it's a bit big to fit in a hat and I don't think I wanna risk getting caught with it, who knows what they'll do to it so no taking to concert XD
The harddrive can record anywhere from 11 to 7 hours of video depending on the quality you use.
The battery that comes with it is just a newb one though and i ordered a decent 230minute battery to use in it so I don't run out too quickly.
 
Ok here's a small demonstration.
 

 
I encoded it to 1024x576 Xvid so everyone can play it properly.
Unfortunately though, the framerate doesn't do it justice and I would like to deinterlace and ouput to 50fps (this is pal remember)
But it's kinda difficult to do with these interlaced h.264 files cause there's no proper filters to handle the decoding. I'm just importing to avisynth with directshowsource. Which does work but it brings the frames in already deinterlaced and blended to 25.
I'll have to do a bit more mucking around to see what I can come up with.

IT HAS ARRIIIIVED!
Sexy High Definition with a Harddrive


I'd like to have one of those :cry:  and it's also a wide screen camera. I had a mini-dv videocamera with me last fall in Japan but had a lot of problems with it probably because of a high humidity -charged battery didn't last for a long time and I could took only 1-2 hours of video. I Haven't edited or watched it yet though.

Those Zen Vision:M's were too large for me, I didn't need all that extra weight, baggage, space, Gigs... i'm fine with the one I bought :]

mabie if i win lots of cash, I'll buy myself a larger capacity media player such as the one's that Creative releases.

Shut Up. If I wanted to listen to an arsehole, I would have farted.

^ I think it qualifies :) how does it perform? (on videos) I'm thinking about replacing my PDA/Phone/Camera with this.

Edit: scratch that, just saw a video review here: http://www.gottabemobile.com/GottaBeMobileHardwareInkShowTheNokiaN800InternetTablet.aspx

Not for me (like the previous version), not enough features compared to my PDA, and its not a phone by itself.

After having some problems with losing the protective cover for my 1GB USB drive, and realizing that it was about 80% full (mostly portable tools), I decided to upgrade.  Yesterday, I ordered the 4GB SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB Flash Drive.  It cost about $40 at Circuit City, which sounded like a pretty good deal considering it lists at about $100.  I got an e-mail saying it's been shipped, so hopefully I'll get it next week.  Maybe I'll try to install a bootable version of Linux on my old stick.  I'll just have to find some web sites that explain how to do it.

^ 4GB? Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. ;D  I've got 3 2GB Cruzers myself. Totally love them except for the fact that they have that software that they have to install on a computer in order to work. I've installed the software on my own comp, but I've managed to get them to work without installing it when I go from one comp to a different one. It's a bit of a pain, plus I don't think it's right to install programs on another person's comp if they're not going to use it themselves.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  I'm not sure exactly what programs you're having trouble with, but I'd suggest looking into portable applications.  These are supposed to run straight from the USB drive without putting things onto the computer.  I can't guarantee that every program that says it's portable does this properly, but that's the idea at least.  Here are a few places to look at if you're interested.

http://portableapps.com/
http://www.theinfobox.com/index.php?title=Portable_USB_Apps
http://www.dailycupoftech.com/usb-drive-systems/3/
http://www.pendriveapps.com/
http://www.portablefreeware.com/

Some of these are collections that you can add to or subtract from to meet your needs and drive size.  Others just list programs, so you can pick whatever ones you want to use from them.  I hope this helps.

^ I hate those drives that emulate a CD-ROM and try to install (autorun) programs from it, like the U3 drive.
I actually went to the trouble and use TweakUI to disable all 'auto insert' things on XP.
(Hurray for Vista not doing this automaticly anymore)

Programs that run without additional setup are good thou.
