thanks again for all your help in selecting a camera. I pulled the trigger on a HPX3000. Now for the question. I am a newbie, for this camera, which is the best record settings? I am using a firestore so it is going to have to be DVCpro HD but should I do 60i, 30p etc. Most of my stuff will be downcoverted to DVD or aired on broadcast.
If there are any other tips with this cam, it would be greatly appreciated.
Joe your question is infinitely deep, we have spent 9 months with the 3000 tweaking, testing and setting up. There is no simple answer, I would highly reccomend you attend Varicamp or Panasonic HD class in Rockport.
But to start as jeremy said if you can dump the firestore and get P2 cards.
