Re: I need some JVC GY-HM750 SDI capture advice

One thing to consider is also archiving and storage space. And of course the end product. What does your client want? Most of the time I shoot XDCam EX at 35mbps. I feel this is a great balance between image quality, price and archiving without having massive data to move around or work with.

I did try a Panasonic HPX250 once, recording to AVC Intra, but honestly I couldn`t tell the difference between recordings from that camera and an EX1. Of course I knew which was which but considering price and storage I landed on XDCam EX. I use my Samurai when I need higher bitrates based on my clients needs or productions that are a bit more demanding.

For simple production, the internal capture is normally fine. But anything requiring high detail and motion (chroma keying, sports, high contrast outdoor shots, etc.), I find the detail lacking internally. As I said before, even bumping up to 100Mbps MJPEG produces much better PQ.

Got our Hyperdeck ordered, should arrive next week. Can't wait to test it out.

I have been very happy recording to the XDCam EX codec at 35 mbps. I used to shoot HDV and since switching this has been a huge step up. So far I have shot two documentaries for national TV and I am going into postproduction with my third, later this month.

So anyone have any comparisons between HDV/XDCAM-EX vs live captured 4.2.2 samples from the same Camera?
