I wanted to take a moment and explain how to setup 1080p24 on the Sony NEXFS100 Since there tends to be a bit of confusion about it.

With the FS100 you can set the Video out differently then what the recorded rate is, for example the record rate can be 1080p24 but the output rate can be 720p60.

So this being said when 1080p is selected for the output the FS100 is outputting 1080p60 which is not supported by the nanoFlash due to hardware constraints,

So when wanting to record 1080p24 We suggest the following:

First set your internal record rate on the FS100 (Under the Rec Out Menu)

Select 1080p24 (FX or FH each will set a different internal bit rate which will be recorded)

Now set the Video out to 1080i the nanoFlash will display 1080i59.94, at this point on the nanoFlash under the video menu you can select Remove 3:2 Pulldown, and the nanoFlash should reflect 1080pd23 on the status line. this means the nanoFlash will record 1080p23.98.

If you want to record 1080p30 or 1080p25 you would set you output on the FS100 to 1080i and on the nanoFlash you would turn on Record PSF,

note that HDMI Timecode is not supported at this time, but is scheduled to be in the next nanoFlash release.

Also Note that Convergent Design is the only recorder that does 3:2 removal with HDMI.

Hope this Helps

Crazy nano question along these lines.

Setting up Nano to record 1080/30p .mov at 100mbps off FS100. Clips record fine but quicktime viewer info has them as 50mbps.


Any thoughts on that one? Every permutation of Nano and FS100 format yields same results XDcam 422 @ 50mbps instead of 100.

thanks

Its a quicktime thing with xdcam, try free media info app to get correct bitrate.

Thanks Andy for this heads-up. As a veteran nanoFlash user, I can confirm recording 1080/25p works like a charm; so should 24p with pull-down removal.

In fact, considering the FS100 output is 8 bit only, I think the nanoFlash is now the best companion for this camera. Not only does high bitrate (especially in I-Fo mode) render movement better than the internal AVCHD codec, but the XDCAM HD422 format is much more NLE-friendly.

That said, full support of the HDMI-embedded TC of the FS100 is even more important for us; please do your best to deliver it asap!

Oh, and please don't forget to fix the MXF corruption when cranking :)

Thanks,

Piotr

yes, please please please figure out a way to get timecode triggered recording over hdmi working
