HDV Deck that is compatible with A1 "frame" recording

Does anyone know of a portable, handy deck that will play back the Canon A1's frame mode? Just looking for something (besides an HV10/20) for a playback deck. Sony has this out there which looks great, but not sure it will be compatible with the frame mode?

There is nothing else besides an HV10 or HV20 that will play back Canon's Frame mode.

Just merged together a whole bunch of "which deck for Frame mode" threads into one big 'ol discussion, just to show how frequently it's asked.

If Canon made a deck, and sold one, for every time the question's been asked, life would be good for them.

Tape deck recommendations?

Hi all,

we need a tape deck for our A1's that is capable of both playing and recording an HDV stream back from the editing software we use.

I read some posts suggesting the use of a canon HV10 camera. Does the HV10 permit recording of an HDV stream off the editing computer? Is it compatible with both 1080i and 25f formats?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Cheers

- Balt

I use an HV20 for that purpose and it works fine 1080/60i and 24F from my A1

Will an HV10 work as well? I can't seem to find any difference between the HV10 and HV20 apart from the shape of the case.

Cheers

Some argue the HV20 is a bit better than the HV10, but check the HV30 recently announced is sounds and looks even better. Read more info in the HV10/20 forum.

HV20 "Deck" for my A1

My HV20 camera/deck is showing up tomorrow. I mainly got it as a B camera and to use for playback and capturing.

I assume this is pretty much a straight forward deal, but thought I'd throw the question out to you all just in case.

Is there anything special I need to know about when using the HV20 as a deck for the A1 videos? Any tricks of the trade I should know about? Or is it just another camera acting as a deck... no bells or whistles or fanfare?

Just another camera - nothing different

$1300.00 for the HV20? or FSC-HD60 $1200 ?

Hey, just moved over from the GL2 (Sold Friday) and will place my order for the A1 Monday (Wife Permitting). Been reading for days and have many questions, but I will keep reading.

I no this is about using the Canon HV20 as a 2nd tape deck, but I donít understand why a FireStore FSC-HD60 is not used. $1300.00 for the HV20 is more then the FireStore FSC-HD60 $1200 @ B&H. This would cut upload time and save wear on the A1 deck. I no there would be times when a 2nd deck is nice, but a tapeless workflow sounds better. Am I missing something?

Thanks

I would say yes you are missing something. The HV20 is $700 at B&H. Where are you getting this $1300 info from?
