H1 - the ultimate SD cam?

Now correct me if i'm wrong but from 4:2:2 60i HD you can get 4:4:4 60p SD.
What more do you want in SD?
I'm just checking 'cos I'm working on a project that I need exported to SD at the end and there's gonna be a lot of cc.Lighting's not an issue.

If that were true, you could capture uncompressed and have a superior editing format.

At least two problems that I can see.

1) can you actually capture 4:4:4... I doubt it (for that matter I would love to capture SD 4:2:2!)

2) Once you get back to DV, you're back to 5:1 and 4:1:1 :-(

You can't capture 4:4:4 but 1080 4:2:2 can be downconverted to 4:4:4 SD.And yes,you do get 4:1:1 when you convert to dv or dvd but 4:4:4 is much better for chroma keying and color correction before you get to the final output.

You can't record 4:2:2 60i HD on the Canon though. Its internal HDV deck only records 4:2:0.
