Canon XH G1 Settings for Green Screen

Salutations,

Can anyone tell me what settings are best suited for the Canon XH G1 when it comes to shooting green screen?

Advice is much appreciated!

Hi Denisse,
there are no special settings for the Green Screen (I'd use a neutral Custom Picture preset), but the best thing to do is to use an external 4:2:2 SDI recorder (like BMD Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 that can record uncompressed or compressed video 4:2:2 @220Mbps ).
The XH-G1 outputs from SDI clean and uncompressed video 1920x1080 with 4:2:2 sampling while it records on tape @ 1440x1080, 4:2:0 at 25Mbps.

Best Regards,

Thank you for responding, you've definitley aided me with the cam question.
I have an HDR-55 recorder that also stores uncompressed or compressed video :)
Just out of curiosity, how many GB or TB can the BMD hyperdeck shuttle store?

Hello Denisse,
the BMD Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 has a slot for a common SATA SSD (no SSD is bundled with it); so the more SSDs you have, the more video you can store, without limits.

On the HDR-55 web page I read that it can record up to 100Mbps; can you record uncompressed too? Does it use SSD or HDD? What is the size of its bundled drive? Spec Sheet isn't available on the Datavideo website...

Ciao,
