I recently produced a film using the Panasonic HDX900 and chose the camera because the intent was to shoot the film in 1080i for TV, however, we have expanded into Blu-ray/DVD, as well as made an attempt to deliver to iTunes in HD but have not been successful because of the interlaced image.
I am looking at shooting a second film and would like a true 1080p film when finished.
My question is: Can the Panasonic HDX900 record 1080p to tape? I have read forum posts saying that it's possible to capture 1080p with this camera using a nanoflash, however our director/editor does not want to use the nanoflash and would prefer to use tape. I haven't had much luck getting a straight answer about this. I'd appreciate any help, thanks!!
