I'm guessing that is a joke.
But I was thinking it would be great if in a few years apple was able to release the true Video iPhone that had a firewire port that could be hooked up to a camera so you could log and capture from the camera on the fly. That would save a shit load of time when it comes to logging and capturing. Of course it would need a huge hard drive.
Maybe even have a very minimized version of FCP that did simple editing when turned sideways like cover flow. So you could capture and edit on the road and get home and have it mostly done and only use your desktop or laptop for cleaning it up and adding effects.
But something like that would easily be worth a $1-2k price tag. 3-5 years I see it as a very possible reality. Only I don't know if it would be able to be HD. Hopefully, but I don't know. Maybe it can capture and log in a highly compressed format, but keep the timecode and tape information so that when you have a desktop you can just batch capture only the footage you actually need.
