Z1 workflow (shooting 50i) for 24p ntsc

Hello
I live in a ntsc country (Brasil) and Ive been searching for a camera to buy for general work, but it should produce nice pictures / sound and easy workflow for filmout - I use Vegas 5 (may upgrade to 6). It would be important the camera to be 24p and native 16X9.
Ive been considering XL2 and HVX 200. But now I started thinking in Z1 because some purchase and maintenance facilities, and less noisy signal, despite it doesnt have progressive CCDs. How you compare these options?
With Z1, what should be the best way of shooting (50i?) and easiest editing workflow for a NTSC 24p final product?
Thank you for your attention.
Ron

You can always de-interlace and slow it down by 4% on your NLE timeline. Make sure you de-interlace first.

Mike crash has a good deinterlace filter.

see http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/archive/i...p/t-52097.html for settings that work well for me.

You would need to watch out for the resampling settings on the way in. The audio will need to be pitch shifted too... I forget which version of vegas improved those algorithms.

Ron,
I am in a similar situation - I have been waiting for the HVX for awhile , but I am beginning to feel like it the Res and the noise are big enough issues for me to want to wait and spen 7k.
I may get an FX1 (I have an sLr box for sound) for half thet (3k) to tied me over.

I hate digitizing so what I may want to do is a lot of direct capture - I work with Final cut and may have to mimic the 24 p

- or work with LumierHD
- or Magic Bullet
- or DV filmaker Pro

Have people had experience with these?
What is the difference between them?

Thanks,
J

I like Nattress best, www.nattress.com or just shoot in 50i if you can (Z1 or FX1e), de-interlace and slow down 4% or conform in Cinema Tools (that's a Final Cut Pro app), as described above.

I don't know if Lumiere HD does 24p, though it does support the HD100's 24p footage. Isn't Magic Bullet PC only, or am I wrong?

Is the de-interlace function in Premiere Pro good enough? Or does it leave something to be desired?
