Recording format on mini-DV tape ??

When I record my footage with my HD100 on mini DV tapes, what kind of format is recorded on the tape.
a) Is it MPEG2
b) Native HDV 1280*720p ?

Why I ask is because, I would hear if I can capture the footage on my computer in native HDV and not “only” in MPEG format

Best wishes

Hi Flemming,

In HD modes the camera captures M2T (Mpeg 2 Transport stream).
In SD modes the camera will capture either M2T (576p50 SD-HDV) or DV25 (interlaced modes).

Capturing footage (through firewire) to a computer will give the same results.

HDV *is* MPEG2 - not to be confused with more expensive high definition formats such as DVCProHD which is more like DV but at high def resolution (effectively four DV codecs running in parallel).

If the camera record in MPEG2 (M2T) and later to be captured on the computer in AVI- format and then later decoded back to mpeg2 – is there a lot of lose in the quality?

I capture to my computer in Adobe Premiere from Br HD 50

Kind regard
