Has anybody ever tried to use a Canon XHA1's to do freelance ENG. I am curious if it is possible to use HDV format and still get the media to a news station in time for broadcast a few hours after filming. I am wondering if anybody knows what type of format the news stations want. Are quicktime movies in H264 fine or some other export choice from FCP. Should I shoot in 1080i60 or 30 and should it be 1/48 shutter speed? So many questions kinda sound stupid but maybe somebody could help. The workflow is worrying me a bit. I need to shoot for three or four hours with two cameras, capture a few sections where the celebrities are, then get it to the news stations. The PR company i will be hired by might have a fiber optics network i can plug my macbook pro into for media output. I will be using a intel core duo 2.2 mhz macbook pro, 4 gigs ram, and the newest fcp to do it with. Also any suggestions on how to notate while filming, the important timecode spots when the celebrities are in it etc.
