HI,

Using the frame rate hack as users of the Panasonic HVX202 & 200 have found it is possible to utilize the software to access the frame rate variables. We have successfully been able to move around the frame rates from 2 - 50fps, but we are wanting to go above 50.

Has anyone been able to move beyond the 50 with the frame rate utility hack.

The HVX-200 and the HVX-202 are the same body with different software/firmware right?

Any advice is very welcome

Thankyou

Al

50 is the maximum for PAL HVX cameras

If you had an NTSC model, 60 would be your max.

In america we have 120 hertz televisions that can effectively double any frame rate.

A TV can't change the frame rate of its source...last time I checked.

When I save a specific scene file to a SD card, then load it into my computer to do a text edit, it has written above 'HVX-200' Ver. 1.00 which prompts me to beleive these are the same bodies with different software and badging.

Also the voltage is the same in both models, DC 7.2/7.9 volts.

PAL HVXs actually have different hardware inside (I believe it's the crystal is different and some other little things). You cannot go above 50fps on a PAL HVX. You cannot convert or manipulate an NTSC to PAL or vice-versa. That's one nicer thing the EX-1 has, it is a true global camera.
