Anyone in the Fargo Moorhead ND/MN Area?

How do folks, I'm looking to help set my church up with a couple of the now lower priced XH A1 cameras. I do however want to try and test them out, to make sure that there aren't any problems with the output image from the BNC Composite out when going into our toaster and mixing with stuff that may be from days gone by that's 4:3. What I hear is that it only outputs a live stretched image (so to speak) rather than a letterboxed 4:3 image.

would love to hear from someone who might be in the general area and would be willing to help?

Or if you know for a fact that a live feed of the BNC out on the XHA1 can be set to be a letterboxed 4:3 image.

Thank you.

You'll find the operators manual in the sticky at the top of this thread; look at page 97 in the xha1 manual for a chart showing all the possible combinations of output. On page 99 are instructions for letterboxed output to a 4:3 tv. / Battle Vaughan /miamiherald.com video team
