Regarding the HVX200, the process for downconverting footage to DV25 is: Downconvert P2 30i footage to a external DV25 FW tape deck such as the SonyHVR-M15U HDV/DV. Possible? It appears there is no tape drive on this camera.
I have two clients who acquire in DV25/DV50 only. I'm trying to determine if this camera provides a simple workflow for those clients footage into FCS 5.1.x. I see the added benefit in recording in HD, if and when they determine to go Hi-Def
