Hi, Thanks,

yes, I was already there and it's where I've gotten my initial info. just wondering if folks here are using it and to what effect.

I've just started using one with my HVX200. Initially I had some issues with blocking and subsequently Focus put a firmware update out which seems to have solved the issue for me, although others report the issue even after the update.

As FCP ( and most other NLE's) has no support for 720p 25/50 I have been mainly using it to capture 1080 25p and it has performed very well. I have done some 720p tests using the HD Log 720p 25 workaround and again this was handled fine by the FS100. Not yet done any DV25 or DV50 records, where you can specify more recording options.

The menu layout is quite deep and a lot of options are offered, but once you have got your head around what you need for each setup it becomes quite a simple process.

Overall it seems like a good product on release (apart from the afore mentioned firmware upgrade) and should hopefully be kept updated via the firmware as and when any other issues arise.

Mostly happy FS100 user,

I agree after an initial dropout issue with the firestore 100 which they
fixed with an update, things have gone well. I found Focus Enhancements
and Jan of Panasonic very helpful in trying to get the issue fixed.
