HDV Camera as VTR

Hi All,

I work at a small Post House / Duplication Company. We are having more and more clients bring in HDV footage, and I'm wondering if there is an affordable camera out there that will record in both 720/1080 and playback both 720/1080 and preferably through a DV firewire connection?

Basically I'm trying to find affordable options for getting HDV footage on to my computer to edit. All the VTRs I've been looking at are way out of our price range.

Thanks,
Matt

Cheapest HDV out there is probably the Canon HV10, but don't know about 720 material....

All HDV camcorders have a FireWire connection.

None will record 720p and 1080i -- it's either one or the other, but never both.

Same thing for playback, sorry.

Your budget is (almost) enough to buy two separate camcorders or decks, one for each format.
