Hi everybody.

While I am trying to learn better about HV30, I found out that HV30 can output full resolution at 4:2:2 via HDMI.

Can this information be verified or falsified by anyone among this forum please? Because 4:2:2 resolution regarded as the superiority of the HVX200 over HV20/30's 4:2:0 resolution.

Thanks in advance.

Within the limits of the sensor, yes. HV20/30 uses a bayer pattern sensor that isn't quite full resolution, so the signal isn't really 4:4:4 RGB to begin with.

I have recorded HV20 uncompressed into a computer and it does look quite nice - for what it is, the thing makes really rather nice pictures.
