    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]DV bitrate is about 25 Mbps, so thats about 333.3 minutes of DV video in 1/2 a terabyte? think my maths is right.

    500GB of harddrive after it is formatted, will give you about 465GB of storage space.

    I am not sure if DV is at 25Mbps bit rate, but if that sounds about right to me.

    Then in that case it is about 3.125MBps. (1 Byte = 8 bits)

    So, that is about 2543 mins of footage, or 42 hours...

    Some how if I remember correctly, DV is actually about 5.5MB per second? If that is the case, then it will be about 24.5 hours worth of footage...

    I am not expert in this aera, so if I m wrong, please point it out and I get to learn something as well.

    Researching digital camcorders for the first time tonight for a friend and read that 1 hour of DV is about 13gb's.

    450(conservative)/13 = 35 hours of video
