1080 24p sample clips ?

Hi,

Has anyone got any HVX200 sample clips 1080 24p to compare with similar material to be found on the Canon XLH1 forum ?

I'm still undecided which way to go.

Thanks

Geoff

This isn't at all to start any controversy, but Mike Pappas now owns the HVX and he shoots 1080p in order to get slightly better 720p from the HVX. He doesn't think of the camera as a true 1080 res camera, but uses it anyway to avoid/lessen 720 artifacts. The slight resolution gain in 1080 with the HVX helps to downsample back to 720p a bit more sharply than if you were to shoot 720 native. Most would never go this route but technically it produces the best 720 you can get from the camera.

DVCproHD 1080p for 60hz users is 1280x1080 recorded pixels, which is exactly double the 720p DVCproHD format of 960x720. (1440x1080 for PAL) You can actually retain more resolution from the HVX by transcoding to, say, PhotoJPEG at a true 1280x720 raster with possibly less artifacts. To some this is diminishing returns, but to others this is a way to extract the absolute best image the HVX is capable of, particularly with the 720 format.

If raw resolution in 1080 is a major criteria of yours, I think you might be a bit disappointed with the details the HVX can actually render in said format.

The HVX has many strengths, but it's simply not the res winner.

My experience is that 720p @ 24n resolves cleaner than 1080i at 24pa, 24p, or 60i. I'm sure that if you downsample the 1080i footage to 720 it probably lessens the artifacts but I simply don't have a need to do that process at this time. I have recently transferred 720 24n footage to 35mm film and the results were more than amazing in my opinion.
