Thanks, Dave for your response. Unfortunately I'm not grasping your full intent here. I'm not an expert user of this camera, so I only know what I'd like to get out of it, but don't know how yet.
I'm fine with sony cams, panasonic is new to me.
Do I have to do anything other than just connect a four pin to four pin (into my dsr-11) and press record on the deck? I rent these cams, so don't have one at the moment to test. Thanks.
