Setting Up the XF-100
on Jun 1, 2013 at 6:12:45 am

I've got an XF-100 for the purpose of recording interviews. The camera came with two CF cards (Sandisk 32GBs, 60MB/s). Recording the best quality video will require me to purchase more CF cards. Would it be better to purchase a couple of 64GB cards that can record at 90MB/s? I really want to record at the best possible quality and avoid dropped frames. What settings should I use to achieve the best outcome for DVD and Blue Ray?

Any suggestions on the best CF cards and settings would be really helpful.

Yes, buy two Sandisk 90s, and turn on the dual card recording function so you won't lose an interview if the rare card failure happens.

You might want to check out the BBC/EBU camera tests which are available. They go through the various settings for cameras and mention which ones you might want to change (depending on application):

There is one for the XF100/XF105:

Hope this is useful.
