The XDCAM HD camcoder launched at IBC has a mysterious drop in resolution when switched to progressive mode.
There is also a time lag in viewfinder.

I suggest that the camera is, from a cameramans standpoint not a true progressive scanning camera.

There seems to be a redefining of what is and what isn't progressive camera by the marketing guys:(


So a interlace image can be deinterlaced in camera and they seem to be calling it a progressive camera.

I cant find any info on the HD XDCAM... Does Sony not have a website for it yet?

PS) I never did think any of the XDCAMs had TRUE progressive technology...

Hi,

try http://www.xdcam.com.au its NOT a Sony site

I think the XDCAM progressive is related to:-

MSW 970 IMX
DVW 970 Digibeta
