Given the choice (with a difference of just over $500) would you go with the Kona LHe over the LSe? I'm only doing SD now and for the forseeable future, but the convenience of the option down the road has me intrigued. I've got a great price on an LHe, so I'm considering picking it up for the possibility of using HD down the road. Does the LHe offer anything other than HD that would make this an easier decision for me?
Thanks again for everyone's help,
How do HD/V cameras ingest footage into the system? Is it Firewire or component/SDI through the Kona? I ask because I don't have (or plans for) a deck or HD monitor at this point (SDI or otherwise), solely because I use a miniDV camera for my footage. If I do do ingest HD/V through firewire, I read the LHe has hardware acceleration, which would obviously help me decide to purchase the LHe at an additional cost. I'm just trying to convince myself the added cost at this point (in my extremly tight budget) if worth is justifiable.
Again, thanks for any help.
