What else is necessary for the jump to HD?
on Feb 20, 2009 at 3:40:55 am

For those who recently made the switch to HD with an EX1 or EX3, what hardware/software did you use to complement the upgrade?

The first, most obvious things to me were;
HD Monitor, HD Deck
HD Plug-in for whatever editing platform you use
Blu-Ray burner/ DVD Authoring software updates?

As for the camera itself;
Spare battery(ies)
Extra (16G?) SXS card

Anything I'm missing? How critical would a computer hardware update be for HD? Is something like the Intel quad processor necessary? RAM increases? Higher speed hard drives? (10k rpm?)

Thanks in advance...

My set list:
HD Monitor, HD Deck..... yes HD monitor (almost any good PC monitor is HD capable)...no HD deck at this moment needed (EX3 camera)
HD Plug-in for whatever editing platform you use...Sony Vegas with Sony Clip Browser (free) is all I need....
Blu-Ray burner/ DVD Authoring software updates?... DVD arch 5 is already capable of BluRay... however I'm only producing for DVD & web at this time (and showing HD clips on DVD-ROM for PC viewing).

As for the camera itself;
Spare battery(ies)... AB Dionic 90 with the AB adapter for the EX3 is all I need.... never run out of power (fortunately I keep my dionic from my last JVC 110)
Extra (16G?) SXS card.... not 1 but 2 16Gig SDHC sandisk card with the MxR adpater solution.... incredibly cheap for this kind of performance...

the workflow for the EX3 is just amazing, never go back to tapes...
just makes the "jump"... is easy, fun and is the future...

good luck
