series meets professional needs in news acquisition and in the
production of TV programming, independent films and other

P2 cards, you can record up to 256 minutes of HD recording
(1080/60i or 720/60p, 4 cards x 64 minutes = 256) or 512 minutes of
SD (DVCPRO 50) recording (4 cards x 128 minutes = 512).
