FireStore FS-4 is designed to bring tapeless technology to hand-held DV camcorders from JVC, Panasonic, Canon, Sony and others.

FS-4 can be used for wedding/event production, field production, independent film, for corporate or educational purposes because it is designed to mount directly to hand-held camcorders, to be worn on a belt or used in situations where it portability is a must.

"Now we are expanding our customer base by offering DTE Technology hand-held camcorder owners at an affordable price," said Matt McEwen, product manager for the Campbell, Calif.-based company.

The FS-4 and FS-4 Pro feature a 40 GB (three hour) internal disk drive, a 6-pin FireWire connector for interface with camcorders, a 6-pin FireWire connector for interfacing with a computer for editing or file transfer, a backlit status LCD display and a set of control buttons including a navigation pad.

The FS-4 PRO is available with an 80 GB (six hour) internal drive.
