Recently I purchased the HMC150P. There were several objectives...one being the ability to easily record long meetings which we eventually send to public access tv stations. The other was trying to save some time in the log and transfer process in FCP and also exporting to You Tube and other websites.
Given these objectives, does anyone have recommendations regarding the various formats the camera shoots in ranging from the PH 1080/60i to the HE 1080/601.
I confess to being confused but I thought with our specific focus someone in the forum could advise us.
Well kinda depends. Personally I love the PH 1080/24 and 720/24 modes because they look the camera's best. The lower bitrate modes give you more recording time at a cost of image quality- actual record times are in your manual. Personally I think the HDSC cards are so cheap- especially if you buy them in bulk there's no downside to the highest bitrate. As far as 60i vs. 24p, that's an aesthetic question more than anything.
