What questions should be in an HD100 FAQ?

I'd like to develop a comprehensive FAQ this month and would like input from our members.

Here's a few questions I can think of right now. Please feel free to add to the list.
  • What is SSE?
  • What is the difference between the GY-HD100U, GY-HD100E, and GY-HD101E ?
  • What is an m2t and how do I watch it?
  • How do I digitize my footage with Windows XP?
  • How do I digitize my footage with Mac OS X?
  • How do I shoot "overcranked" slow motion?
  • What 3rd party battery solutions are available?
  • What lenses or adapters will fit on the Hd100?
  • How do I capture uncompressed HD?
  • What frame rates is the HD100 capable of?
  • Why can't I manually control the iris even thought the switch is on "M"?
  • What is the difference between 24 and 23.98? Which one should I edit with?
  • I see a bad pixel. What should I do?
  • How do I copy someone else's scene files onto my SD card?
  • What is the purple and green "fringing" I see when I focus? What is CA?
  • How should I configure my camera for a "film-look?"

Q: How can I output DV via 1394 from a HDV recording?

A: You can't, the GY-HD100 does not support real time down conversion to SD via 1394. Capture your footage in HDV and use your NLE to downconvert.

And replace all SSE references with SSF, it is a Fault, not an Effect.

I'd like the FAQ to briefly breakdown the different intermediary codecs and their corresponding softwares.

A few words on JVC's version of hdv might be nice.

How to use the focus assist.

Software options.

Battery options.

Tim.

I get asked about White Balance a lot. Specifically if changing a configuration changes the WB. Maybe we can add something like:

Q: When I use one of the scene files that I download from the Net, do I need to change WB?
A: Yes, White Balance is independent from the color matrix configuration and should be reset for each scene you shoot. You can either use one of the presets in the camera (3200K for indoor or 5600K for outdoor) or reset the WB by placing a white card in from of the HD100 and pressing the WB button when the WB switch is either on the A or B position.

Here's one I'd like to know - how the heck do you edit 24p with this camera (answers both both mac and pc users).

Hey John,

We should get together. I am using Lumiere HD and FCP 5.1 to cut my 24p stuff.

I picked up a MacBook Pro last weekend and it flies.

I'm hoping that it will get easier to do when Apple releases their "imminent" update.

However, I would like to suggest to Tim Dashwood that we have the "most recent" settings listed for Lumiere HD and FCP 5.1 for cutting our footage in 24p. It would also be nice to have a list that starts with capturing and ends with outputting.

Thanks,

Tom Chaney

Actually, I found it while searching for your post on the V/H settings, but I am equally unsure about many other settings too.

Hi Tim,

the questions here asked are very good!
Where will the Faq be ready to seen?
I think it would be good as a sticky on these boards!

That is the plan. I have a great love for the board and I do the best I can with the time available, but unfortunately other things keep coming up.
In the meantime, it looks like information is being added to the HD100 Wiki FAQ and the JVC FAQ answers some basic questions.
