well if you want to haul a desktop machine around you can record direct to HD in component, or SDI on a 250 in the field. for controlled situations, this is ok, but generally speaking its more of a pain than anything else. good for studio key work as the only situation I'd really reccomend it.

generally not for most work except....

1. deck may do some chroma smoothing that produces slightly more appealing look visiually. sony DVcam decks do this via SDI. can't say for JVC/sony HDV decks.we are talking *marginally* better or should I say different results. again if you go to DVCpro though, you loose enough resolution that I'd not really consider this, not to mention 14mb/sec vs 2.5mb/sec, almost a 5X factor.

2. if you need to push color correction, then capturing to 10bit uncompressed/lightly compressed might be an edge in finessing color correction. only something to consider once the cut is locked and you're just reloading a fine cut.
