Does the Sony work with Canon's proprietary 30p and 24p frame rates? BTW I am not trying to promote the Firestore but simply am trying to compare the two devices. The Firestore FSC does work with 30, 24p.

Yes it works flawlessly. No problems at all.

They're not really proprietary as much as the correct and best way to store progressive frames within MPEG2. Sony's newest cams use the exact same progressive method to store 24P footage now, so they didn't make any special effert per se to support Canon. You could say they caught up :)

Interesting

Is there a Sony deck like the Walkman that will play back Canon now?

Not sure how many products are compatable, but at least one of Sony's recent professional decks plays back 24P, including Canon's. Maybe someone else can remember the model? It was definitely a pro deck though, nothing like a Walkman.

It's the Sony HVR-M35, their most recent HDV VTR. Hope this helps,

So, is nobody using the Sony HVRMRC1 with XH-A1 at 25F? Would be great to get confirmation that the recorder supports this mode before buying one. So far haven't seen any indication whether it works or not.

Can the MRC1's playback be viewed on the A1's LCD and on a monitor attached to the A1?

Thanks.

It can be played back on the LCD. Haven't tested it with a monitor.

Yes it does the previous post talk about 24p and 30p but I have checked and UK online stores sell it which would mean it would need to record at 25p/50i otherwise not much point selling it in UK.

and to prove it further here is the Australian manual that comes when you buy the z7p and go to page 28 stating it accepts all formats http://www.metroscreen.org.au/pdf/Ma...Z7P Manual.pdf

So no more questions about it.. man I want one. especially that it has interval recording as well which the A1 itself doesn't :)

I suspect this feature is for the Sony camera rather than the A1

It doesn't mention anything about it in the Manual except that its only in DVCAM/DV mode which is a shame.

I ordered one. I notice is stores SD video in AVI or "RAW DV". What file format is the latter? Is it supported by FCS 1? TIA
