hi everyone,

i'm looking very seriously at the v1u, so i have questions about other user's experiences with it.

my question is this, sony's own documentation lists it as

* Scanning System:

1080/60p 4:2:2


-and-


Recording format 1080/60i, 480/60i (NTSC)

if i'm not mistaken that means that the image is originally non-interlaced, but the camera processes it to an interlaced output.

does the HDMI out bypass the scanning and recording system? will it be truly uncompressed 4:4:4 or kinda uncompressed 4:2:2?

i would like to record a 4:4:4 1080p image at 60 fps for slo-mo purposes(the built in slo-mo is too lossy to actually use). as an added complication, it has to be keyed, so i'd like to capture from the HDMI out.

thanks for your time!

It is possible to record 1080p60 from the camera but you have to hack into the CCD block. www.reel-stream.com specializes in these modifications for the Panasonic HVX200. For a $4500 modification you will be able to record 1080p60 uncompressed with 4:4:4 14 bit color.

thanks Thomas,

i had forgotten about that option.

i just talked to sony this morning. they said that the processor is upstream from the hdmi out so all that you can get out of the hdmi is 1080i 60fps, or 1080p 24/30fps
at 4:2:2....


i'm gonna look into the reel-stream option though.

and a big honkin HD array....
