HDCAM vs. HDCAM SR with the 7D
Posted 17 February 2010 - 10:24 AM
I'm starting work on a feature that will be shot on the Canon 7D. I am going to make HDCAM sub-masters of the footage from Final Cut Pro.
I am wondering if picture wise it makes any sense to master at HDCAM SR or if the H.264 footage is already so compressed that it wouldn't make a difference.
what do we think?

The 7D does not generate as much media as a RED, so don't be worried about storage space. If you want a tape backup, LTO4 is the way to go.
BTW, I know you want a submaster on tape, but I was also thinking about archival reasons too.
