    As I recall, I ran the bulky Canon D-Terminal to Component video cable from the camera into a $20 Component to HDMI converter box, and then ran an HDMI cable into my Atomos Ninja Blade. Additionally, I had to run a USB cable from the converter box into a small power bank. There weren't many mounting points on the camera so despite my best efforts to keep things tidy, it was a pretty chaotic setup.

    I believe that even if the tape deck is broken the S-Video should still work, can't see why the deck would affect the "other" circuits.

    I'll run some tests and see if there's any difference between the two modes. In my head I'm wondering if like... the closer to the original footage the better for the upscaling algorithm. I imagine Topaz is assuming "proper" 1080p, for instance, instead of 16:9 480 blown up to 1080, so in my *head* 720 is actually the move. Honestly I'll just rip off a couple seconds of both and we can figure it out together why am I typing haha

    That's good to hear. Might have to see if I can pick one up. I love CCD cameras.

    Topaz has several different modes, including algorithms that work for heavily compressed video, low resolution video, and even interlaced video. Basically I think the idea is to try to get something with as much actual detail as possible as a starting point.

    Here's a Topaz test with another CCD camera I've been enjoying, the Lumix FZ-47:

    The small form factor of this camera makes it so fun. I just wish it could capture in 24p.
