XL-H1's 24F mode works for the D.T.E. recorders....

Looking for an easy way to get your 24f mode HDV .M2T 24p footage to your computer without using your camera as a deck?

Thanks very much Shannon.

I have (2) FS-4's, both with the HDV upgrade. They've been great on DV (JVC DV500/DV550 & Sony PD150) - I can say they're 'pretty good' on HDV, but a bit finicky, and perhaps buggy. I've used them with my Z1 and my HD100.

With my Z1, I can record straight to the FS4 with no problems, when not recording to tape. The files seem to be fine, although there is a small audio 'gap' between the file sections on longer recordings (when it splits the content into multiple files because of FAT32).

However, when I record to tape (synchro slave and not), some of my FS4 footage has a tendency to become corrupted, and barely plays on my Edius timeline (won't even load in Vegas). I think it's a bug... not sure though.

So - I'd love to know what you find using the FS4 with the H1 when you also record to tape (starting and stopping the tape ad hoc when the FS4 is rolling continuously, and in sychro slave mode (where the FS4 records when you hit the record button on the H1). Also - if you can let it roll for about 15 minutes, and see if there are any gaps in the audio between the segments as they are placed together on the timeline, it'd be great. I've noticed a small 1/4-1/2 second audio dropout on the longer HDV captured footage on the FS4 - never been an issue with SD DV. Anything you can report (60i/24F modes and the tape recording combinations).

My units are not the 'PRO' version - but the firmware is also 1.0.2 like you listed.

Thanks very much Shannon - this is one more major question answered for me. I'm soooo close to getting it - have the invoice quote and everything.

This is great news!

Hmmm.....

This changes things for the H1 playback and capturing for NLE issues.

The H1 is looking better everyday.
