Bill,

Safe area markers work for TV but not for online videos since you see everything. So unless you put a mask over the borders comming in up to the safe area markers (which doesn't look so hot) you have to account for the 90% view of the LCD on the camera. Unless I'm missing something :)

Shiv, I know that, but using the markers more aggressively for framing for online only viewing, one could avoid having to add any masks. Then again, at least for me anyway... adding a mask ain't so bad :)

This topic did raise a question for me as i'm still considering this nice Camera as a upgrade from the Panasonic DVX.
I use my Steadicam a lot in projects and always needed a video distribution amplifer to get from 1 video-output to 2 or more.

This Camera has 2 AV's out's in composite. 1 via RCA and 1 via BNC ?
Does this both outputs working at the same time ?

Thanks,
Erik

If I'm not mistaken, it's only one or the other.

Bill,

Are you saying that you use the 80% safe area as your "border" when you frame while shooting and use a mask when/if you publish videos online? Another question, Is most of your stuff for TV viewing or online?

Thanks and regards,

Shiv.
