I am looking to replace my old canon gl with a HD version. I am looking at the XH G1 or the XH A1 and have noticed that the only main difference is the XH G1 has the HD/SD-SDI output. Could someone please explain to me what that is and is that worth the extra couple grand?

not sure what that is but i also know the only MAJOR difference is that the XH G1 has a master sync gen output so if u were to shoot with multiple cameras, you can hook it up to a sync gen console.

SDI stands for serial digital interface. It's uncompressed digital video. So it's like firewire, but better.

Not sure about the cameras in question, but I know there are cameras out there that record in 4:2:0 natively, but can output SDI at 4:2:2.
