Deck for the HV20 for 48 Hour film Festival

Okay, I admit it, this camera should be considered a deck for itself, but this question is technical regarding the HDV 60i stream created by 24p setting on the HV20.

I'm going to be involved in a 48hour film festival, and we are considering using 2 HV20s to shoot. Time in these things is critical, so we wanted to capture with a third camera. The only other HDV camera we have is an FX1. We don't have another deck. Direct capture to a hard disk is not practical.

Will it properly transfer the HV20 24p material?

I tested it briefly, and did get a picture on play back. Captured some marterial, but had some issues I wasn't sure was related to the camera, or other things going on.

Comments anyone ?

what sort of issues? the 24p footage should/will transfer just like a regular 60i stream, because that's what it is. so if the fx1 will playback the 60i from the hv20 it should playback the 24p. i know fx1 footage will playback on the hv20 but i'm not sure about vice versa...

Hey Austion, I didn't really have time to check it out. Just had a bit of a hang up in the captured file when I played it on WMP. Probably was a tape hickup issue, as there might have been a gap in the tape. So I didn't mean to infer that I definitely saw a problem, but I was just wondering about this aspect of 24p capture issue, and whether the HV20 does anything special in the capture process when it transfers the stream.

I've done direct to disk capture for the last two 48 Hour film festivals with two old laptops with a 25ft firewire cable. Not every shot, but 95%. Saves valuable time.
