Quality Loss in HDV --> DVCPROHD

I own a MacPro w/1GB of RAM. I can't really afford another gig right now and even DVCPROHD runs somewhat sluggish but if I convert my 1080 A1 footage to 720 DVCPROHD what kind of quality loss do you think im looking at? Can anyone post a RAW AVI or MOV of HDV so I can try this out? If anything PM'ing me with the link would keep it from eating bandwith since it would be a one time DL.

Any thoughts/comments encouraged.

- Kyle

Why are you going to 720? DVCPRO HD can do 1080i.

Then why is he using the Canon XH-A1? That's a 1080i camera.

I have footage i shot with the XL H1 at 1080f24 and 1080i60. But I captured it with my Kona LH via HD SDI at 1080i29.97 DVCPRO HD. Looks VERY good. Same image I see on the monitor playing out of the camera.

And MUCH easier to work with.

I also captured the 24f stuff as DVCPRO HD 720p24 and it looks fine too.
