HDV Capture Quality from Consumer HDV Camera
Posted 01 November 2007 - 05:27 AM
I have a debate going on with another person in my workplace regarding this. He claims that there is definitely a quality loss when capturing using a consumer-grade camera, but I'm not so sure if this is the case.
If any of you tech gurus can clarify, please do! Thanks!

What I wanted to know was if I shot HDV using a 'big' camera, then wanted to do a Firewire transfer using a 'small' camera, would there be a loss in quality via the Firewire output of the small camera? What I'm asking has nothing to do with the actual image capture of either camera - just the digital transfer process (Firewire).
Hope I've made my question clearer this time?

Thanks for your thoughts and reply, Walter. Though if anyone else on this board has another 'theory', please feel free to post your thoughts.

Why would it be any different? It's digital data not an analogue signal, so tape heads, processing etc. shouldn't make any difference. The small camera isn't going "throw away" or choke the digital data it reads of the tape...
