On Location may solve the record direct to Hard drive request.
USB / FW and HD maybe an issue to resolve...
>Any idea how to flip a monitor signal horizontally?
My guess is that it can't be done. I can only think that it would have to be done by the display itself, and I've not heard of such a thing because, well what consumer would really ever need or even want a reversed image.
Your best bet may be to actually shoot a mirror, instead of the direct action.
I recall using pro monitors that were switch horizontal flippable but that was years ago and they were not domestic monitors. They were also black and white.
We used them for the puppeteers to monitor what they were performing for the camera.
I've learned that Adobe OnLocation when capturing video has a setting to flip video horizontally in the monitor display, so that would be a solution. (Few LCD consumer TVs have any ability to flip in hardware, except for Sharp LCD's which seem to have a mirror command, or professional video monitors which often can flip.)
My nagging problem now is apparently OnLocation cannot capture video from the newer HD consumer cameras which only have USB 2.0 and HDMI outputs, whereas OnLocation CS4 at this moment appears to only support 1394 firewire. New cameras no longer have 1394 outputs, the trend is to USB 2.0
I think most all pro cameras will still have Firewire. Use one of them instead of a consumer cam.
HVX200 has F/W
You probably need FW if you intend shooting HD.
Note 720pn does not work via F/W to monitor such as On Location.
