16:9 HDV converts to 4:3 SD in HC7?

Hi!

I am thinking of getting a HC7 to use as extra camera and tape machine.
Does it convert 16:9 HDV to 4:3 SD in camera, without letterbox?

Today I have a Canon XH-A1 which only converts from 16:9 HDV to 16:9 SD in camera.

If this works, it would shorten my workflow tremendously.

Thanks Erik

As far as I know, none of the HDV cameras do this.

The Sony Z1 converts to straight 4:3.
