I am going to buy the HDR-FX1 in a couple months but I still have a few questions. First of all when you "down convert" Are you converting the video from 1080i to 720 or are you just cropping off the edges of the frame? Once converted are you able to up-convert it without recapturing footage? And does the down conversion still look better than something like the pd170 for example? Is it possible, however unlikely, for me to transfer anything shot on the fx1 to film? Also, is the quality in DV mode better than the quality with the dvx100a?

Sorry for all the questions
