Anyone have any experience with the AJ-PD900WP? We currently own and shoot with an SDX-900 and are contemplating buying an AJ-PD900WP as a secondary camera. It seems to be old enough and uncommon enough to be troublesome finding information. Any insight on the performance of this camera would be greatly appreciated!
That was a 480/60P camera that wasn't very well-supported by editing software -- most people had to bump up the footage to 60i/1080 or 60P/720 to post it. Was used for two features I know of, "Tortilla Soup" and "Teddy Bear's Picnic". Took great 480P pictures... so if you can figure out to post it, it would be great for shooting slow-motion 60P shots to be cut into a 24P/480 project.
Birns & Sawyer in Hollywood used to rent it out, so talk to them about the post issues.

We're currently shooting almost exclusively 4:3 60i in 50Mbps mode with the sdx-900 and would be looking to shoot in that mode with the PD900 as well. Final destination is standard def local market tv stations.
