Hdv-sd60p?

Anyone tried capturing this format yet? I have one of these coming next Wednesday:

http://www.moviestuff.tv/c_15.html

I want to use my HD100 to capture some old 8mm family home movies for a project I'm working on right now. This projector apparently only works with cameras that can shoot at 60 fps, so I figured I'd shoot HDV-SD60P, but a quick look around found several threads on several forums where people were complaining about Final Cut Pro not recognizing the format. Of course, those were older threads. I have FCP 5.1.2 and I'm running it on a quad 3 GHz Mac Pro. Any insight?

That device is designed for NTSC and runs the film at 15fps, so I would use 30P on the HD100. The math should be pretty close, just make sure you set your shutter speed to 1/60 so that you don't see the film movement or flicker.

If you just want to transfer your 8mm to standard def for DVD, then use DV60i mode. This will also allow you to use 4x3 aspect ratio to match your original.

Is that a delicate way of saying that nothing on Earth is going to capture HDV-SD60P? ;-)

The same stuff that will capture high-def HDV will capture standard-def HDV, but definitely more stuff will work with standard DV, and DVD is SD anyway, so might as well capture at its native temporal and spatial resolution.

No. I capture 480P60 all the time, but it necessitates the use of a m2t capture utility and then transcoding to another codec.
If you just need standard def, avoid the hassle and shoot in DV mode. You won't need 60P for your 8mm transfer device, just a 1/60th shutter speed.
