Don GreeningA Creative Cow Real-time Report: EX1 vs. PD170

Hi Marx,

The EX shoots in HD only but there are 2 modes which are HQ and SQ. The SQ mode is essentially an HDV mode at a fixed bit rate of 25 Mbits/second CBR. You can send an SD stream from the EX SDI port but you need a SDI host card to receive the signal, or a tape deck that has SDI input.

I downconvert SD material using software and the result is equal to a Digibeta SD camera like the Sony DSR 570. Which is a heck of a lot better than any PD170.

Hope this helps.

- Don
