HPX250 _DSR, FocusBar, Peaking

New Camera questions:
It seems like the DSR function only works with the camera set to 1080i, am I reading that correctly?

I would love to get a better explanation of how the Focus Bar works?

On many cameras you can set a peaking color to assist in focusing. Is this functionality available on the HPX 250?

Thanks,

Yes, DSR is limited to 60i, much like the HPX170. The HPX250 does allow three knee settings even when using Cine Gammas, unlike previous Panasonic palmcorders. The 20-bit DSP handles highlights more like a Varicam than a palmcorder--the chroma clipping issue looks to be much improved.

The focus bar expands when best focus is achieved, also like the 170.

I have not seen a focus in red type of peaking function, which the EX1 and AF100 have. The LCD display is very sharp, like the AF100, so critical focus is not difficult and there is a focus expansion function, unlike the AF100.
