    hmm... so why can sony do HD on minidvs?

    Comment


      because sony HDV is only 25 Mbps compressed Mpeg 2. where as DVCPROHD as stated above is 100 Mbps

        so is the quality of the hvx200 tape equal to sony's?

        Comment


          If you are in fact talking about tape, then the answer is no. The HVX can only record standard-resolution DV on tape, which doesn't compare to HDV.

          But if you compare DVCProHD to HDV, then DVCProHD will look better. No interframe artifacts, and twice the color information.

              Are there any known problems with getting a HVX200 to capture on a Mac Pro? Because my new Mac doesn't seem to recognize it, but it sure does recognize my old Sony TRV80.

                Have you put the camera into 1394 device mode? There are no know problems with making the HVX200 and MACs work over 1394, there are thousands that do this every day.

                Best,

                  By which you mean VTR mode? Yes.

                  I have captured before with my PC.

                    Push the VTR/camera button once, then hold it down for several seconds until you see a blue screen and "1394 device connect". If you don't see that screen, you are not in the mode. THEN try to capture.
