Hi there,
I've got a client sending me a mini-dv tape taken from a HV30 camera. I'm unfamiliar with using this footage but he tells me it's HD on a mini-dv tape.

Can I use my SD Canon GL2 to roll the tape for digitizing and still preserve the HD footage?


Thanks.

Nope, won't work.

You need to use an HDV camera to digitize that (preferably another Canon, but other HDV cameras/decks should work as well).

The problem is that my client isn't confident in their shooting/digitizing abilities, hence them sending me the tape. I sent the tape out, and got back SD footage. Now I can't figure out who made the mistake-- the shooters or the digitizers.

I got my client's HDV tape from them (shot on standard mini-DV), and it plays in my GL2. Basically looks like widescreen SD.

If my GL2 plays it AT ALL, does that confidently mean it's NOT HDV? Or does it simply mean my GL2 won't give me anything better than SD when reading it?

Thanks,
Greg

If it's playing on a GL2, it's most definitely standard (possibly widescreen) DV, and not HDV.

Great, thanks.
(Yes, it was shot widescreen.)
