A1 in the DV record mode

I shot a little test with the XH-A1 set to record DV instead of HDV. Looks to me that the picture is not as good as an XL2.

I suppose I could but from more testing I have become undecided. I shot some test scenes in a studio setting with professional lighting and was pleased with the DV result. The shots from outdoors in full sunlight looked soft and smeared. Maybe at full fstop there is a quality loss.

Probably!

Nevertheless a sample clip is welcome - if you like.
