xdcam ex or xl-h1
on Dec 20, 2007 at 2:31:02 am

Hi all,

i'm choosing netween the xl-h1 and the xdcam ex
so far i have some conclusions
+gen+tc in (for use with my lockit)
i like the picture don't like the hdv format slow rendering
tape based
sdi-out direct into hdextreme
true 25 fps?
easy cheap backup media

xdcam ex
no tc or lanc
true 1920x1080 cmos
under over crank
true 25 fps?
sdi-out direct into hdextreme
fast transfer when used with a expressslot card but much slower with supplied usb2 card reader?
no good backup methode?

i think both have the hd-sdi out before the compression?

what do you think?

i like to do blue/green screen work using the hd-sdi out or on recorded material when in the field

i have a 744t and a lockit so locking tc would be a big plus

i think i will be using the proress hq 422 a lot for speed /storage sake would recording from the hd-sdi out from prerecoded material (hdv xl-h1 or the mpeg2 into mpeg4 container xdcam)

if recording from the hd-sdi out from the xl-h1 tape would the tc still be in the file? kristian oonce told me i needed premiere pro for that (rp-168 protocol if i remeber)
i.o.w. is the tc maintained in the sdi output? does fcp handel this tc information?

also i just read about the hdv firewire to proress direct capture methode would this contain the tc
would this be possible for the xdcam ex also?

thanks in advance for feedback



The box said 'Requires Windows 95, or better.' So I bought a Macintosh.
