Thanks!!

HDV will be somewhat easier than DVC ProHD P2 as far as a Premiere Pro workflow. You can convert P2 media with CineForm (my personal method) or, at one time DV Rack had a capture converter, but I'd have to go back and see if there is a transcode component in the new CS3...I can't remember.

I've worked with the SI Mini. It's a fantastic camera, but it requires a workflow mindset change entirely. It needs a laptop (my Dell M90 is a good candidate) to capture its output via Gig Ethernet, and that workflow produces CineForm RAW files. It's an exceptional workflow for image quality, but the camera is a big change for most video guys.

However, with superior exposure latitude compared to an F900 (I participated in a side-by-side comparison in San Francisco in January), it's an impressive value for anyone who does independent film work as the images are beautiful and the CineForm RAW workflow really preserves image quality.

Hey Tim, thanks for the input!

I found some information on the SI Mini, but all of it was forums and news groups. Where is the actual company located so that i can get specs and pricing?

Also, do you think that the Canon would be an easier workflow for me?

I'm still leaning toward the Canon as for the picture quality, SDI-HD Out, and the Lens.

Thanks Again!
