I donīt have a HD display, but...

I donīt have a HD display, but I would like to have the extra resulution to work with in edit and post (pan&scan, and so on).

I am curius about the downconverting process: What does a downconverted image look like when viewed on a regular PAL televsion tube? ( HD -> DV ) does the downconverted HD it look better than odinary DV ?

***************************************************

(odinary) DV = 720*576 or
(JVC) HD =1280*720 downconverted (in cam) to 720*576

***************************************************
The question:
Is the "HD downto DV" nicer when viewed on a regular television tube? Or is regular DV better??

I'm unclear of your question. The JVC HD camcorders are NTSC only.

And your see your editing on an RGB monitor.

Yes, you are absolutly right! But my question is:

Are the downconverted (JVC)HD nicer than odinary DV when viewed on a regular television tube right from the camcorders S-VHS port?

Or is the regular DV mode better??

..no matter where it is NTSC or PAL

Downconverted HD looks much sharper than normal DV mode.
