I just got a Sony portable recorder, actually, I have both the VRD-MC5 and now the 6
The 6 was supposed to be able to record 16x9... but even when I feed it 16x9, it still records 4x3
This is just off the AV outs of one of my newer Canon G30's - but the unit will show/display the 16x9 image fine as a preview.
There doesn't seem to be an option to change this in the unit... is it just ignoring the 16x9 flag when it's doing the actual recording?
I realize that Im not going to get HD quality, since Im going AV out to start with, but that's ok, since this is SD DVD - but I was hoping that it would retain the flag at least, so I'd have 16x9, and it would letterbox on a 4x3 TV
Is there such a device that would allow me to burn a true 16x9 DVD on the spot like that? - some of the work I do, there is like zero budget, and it would be nice to have a 2 hr show done when Im done shooting it, but it really needs to be in 16x9, since that's what it's shot in....
