[Aaron Cadieux]"could I connect a JVC110u to my EX1 in HDV mode (as a deck) via firewire and transfer footage? "
The manual states that you can connect any HDV compatible "recorder" (deck or camera) using iLINK but only material that was shot in SP (HDV) mode is able to be transferred. The 3 HDV modes are:
You can record in any of the above SP modes to the EX SxS Pro cards and to the HDV device simultaneously depending how you set things up in the EX menu. It's also possible to transfer clips from the SxS Pro cards to the NLE of a computer using iLINK but again, only if the material is HDV. Although the manual doesn't mention it, logic dictates that you should also be able to to transfer clips already recorded on the EX cards to another HDV deck or camera using the same method.
The manual states that you can also go the other way from the iLINK connected deck or camera and transfer HDV footage to the SxS Pro cards of the EX. Again, use the the 3 SP recording modes as your guide.
