You know after I posted this I was wondering if this was what you were talking about. DOH!!
I've heard that if you are a Mac user the HDD cams are kind of a pain in the arse to work with. But I like the idea of a tapeless workflow. I know that a lot of vloggers have been using a tapeless workflow for a while already using cameras that write to flash memory cards. So yeah HDD cams would seem to make some sense for vlogging.
