I was wondering if anyone has experience simultaneously shooting with a F900R and F900/3. How close were the looks of the cameras? (If similar, what exactly is improved in the picture quality of the F900R? If the chip is the same, is the signal processed differently?)

Was it possible to set up both cameras the same by having one camera read the Memory Stick of the other? (We were unable to do this.) The menus are completely different.

Incidentally, when playing a tape on the F900/3, which was recorded on the F900R, elements within the frame tear around the edges. This is only noticeable with subject or camera movement. Doing the opposite: playing a F900/3 tape in the other camera results in a normal picture. However, on a HDCAM player, all the images were fine. I was told by a Sony engineer that this is normal and has to do with tracking, which is all corrected in the player.

Do you have any other thoughts or potential issues arising on the set when using these two cameras on the same project? Thanks.
