I know that this has probably been asked already but I can't seem to find the answers in the previous forums.
These new Sony HDV cameras come up a lot in discussions at the moment especially when I'm putting myself forward for DP jobs on short films. I have a notion that there are issues with using these cameras but I don't understand what these problems/issues are at present.
- In the back of my mind I have acquired some idea that you can't yet use HDV properly because of a lack of post-production facilities...or something to that effect...
- and also that you need a HD monitor to watch your footage back properly (as opposed to downconverted to DVCam) does this mean that you have to transfer HDV to digiBeta or some other more common format before you can 'see' the quality of HDV?
So my question is: Can you or can't you use these cameras effectively in HDV mode yet or not? Or do we have to wait for some reason?
Could someone please explain the issues simply for me?
Any help is much apreciated - thank you very much!
What are the current issues with using HDV?
