Hello to you all,

I have a question to make...
When I shoot with the XDCAM530P in PsF is the scan mode by default 25p or I have to do something else?

Thank you all in advance.

The camera is in interlaced mode by default. You need to adjust the menus.

Go to the OPERATION menu, and scroll down to page 20 "FORMAT". Go to SCAN MODE and change it to PsF.

Exit the menu. Sony recommend that you then turn the camera off for 10 seconds and then turn it on again after doing this.

You will now be in PsF mode. But you need to switch the shutter on and set it to 1/50 otherwise things will look a little dreamy in motion.

Hope this helps. :)

NEVER assume any multi-format camera is in the mode you want. You ALWAYS check it.
