How much space does RAW video footage ( downloaded directly from the camera ) use?

I use a Sony Handicam dcr-hc51e.

About half the size of the disk, sometimes more... –  Wim ten Brink Sep 4 '09 at 18:41

Depends entirely on what format and resolution the camera uses.

As far as I can see, with a DV camera like that you get 36 megabit/s.

I made a small utility that could maybe help you out with disk space calculation, it is available as a simple javascript here:
