hpx500 question

hey everybody.
I just got my new cam. The tapeless technology blow me away.
I am back to being "in over my head".
Forgive my basic question but I really have to get up to speed yesterday.
In my "Recording setup" menu the "Rec Format" is set at 720p/30N.
The next line reads 480i Rec Mode DVCPRO50 (in blue)
I cannot seem to get a HD setting in this line.
I have tried all the frame rate settings.
How do I shoot in HD?
thx,
-g-

oh yeah, how do I capture/transfer live?
thx again

720p is DVCPRO HD. The 480i is in "blue" meaning it is inactive, but that would be your sd rec format if you were in "non-HD" mode. Confusing nomenclature in the beginning, but you'll get the hang of it in no time. Anything in blue is inactive.

Thank you, next question, is there a 2 pin power supply port for an on cam light?
I can't believe Panasonic would build a broadcast news cam without one.
Does any one know where that port is hiding?

It's on the Anton Bauer Gold Plate. If you're IDX, I dunno.
