Just picked up the 7D, and for some reason, I am not loving it as much as my XH-A1. I seem to have better control and detail on the XH-A1 than on the 7D. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? Could it just be the Quicktime playback (because the 7D footage looks great on the camera's LCD.

You SHOULD love the camera more than your other camera that shoots to tape. read up on the some different settings to use. I know a lot of people turn down the sharpness to help with anti aliasing, but there are different settings for different scenarios.

Are you converting the footage to Apple Pro Red 422? H.264 is a delivery format. Convert to pro res and edit in fcp.
