Be aware that:

(1) Most DSLRs have a limit to how long they can shoot video, since
    the capture + encoding process have a drastic processor expense
    and thus overheating issues.

(2) Battery life is more of a concern than storage.  If you can power
    via AC that's a huge plus.

With those thoughts in mind, I will probably have my HDSLR at the
conference too.
