    This is true. The only thing that will play back Canon's 24/30F is another Canon HDV camera.

    There is no deck if you shoot 24 or 30f. If you shoot 60i then you could use a Sony deck. Many Canon owners buy the HV10 or HV20 to use as a deck. I have an XH A1 and use it, but if I were in a daily...

    I'm shooting 24f, capturing with 5.1.4 and no problems at all.

    You can play back Canon HDV tapes on a Sony deck as long as you shoot 50i, but you can't play back the 24f or 30f tapes on anything...

    It's a matter of which you like best. Personally I prefer the bigger chips. One of the best looking entries in our festival a year ago was "Mojave Phone Booth, " shot with the Z1. I was all set to...

    You can do Canon's 24p in HDV in FCP IF you did the $49 upgrade to Universal last year and then the subsequent free download. You have to be at 5.1.2 at least. That $49 upgrade ran for months and...

    FCP recaptures fine. I load in the 1080P24 HDV mode, edit in a 24p timeline. I don't know what happens if you do it some other way.

    A test between P2 and HDCAM doesn't make sense unless the cameras are equivalent. Which P2 camera and which HDCAM camera?

    I still need tape, or something as good as tape that I can put in a box and store for a long time. I bought a Canon XH A1 last year for personal use because it is HDV. I have no problem at all with...

    It's been a number of years since the XL series had any focus or softness problems. I didn't like Canons in those days either. Recently I got an XH A1 for personal use, and I'm finding that the...

    I saw the 350 with footage projected up on a screen at least 18-20 feet wide. Beautiful stuff. The camera is very well balanced, lighter than an HDCAM and overall feels really nice.

    Allegedly the CMOS chips give you as good a picture quality as LCDs, maybe better in some areas. My problem with the V1 isn't the chips, it's the size of the chips--they're only 1/4" chips, and the...

    I too would recommend the Sony Z1 because of the PAL/NTSC capability. It has a "faux 24p" mode that most people don't like. However, for the work he's doing, I don't see why he would need 24p...

    I've never seen it on any other camera, or read about it, though it's possible it could have happened on others. Anyway, as you say, the price is right, so he can quit whining.
