I just found out by accident

I just found out by accident that I could play back 720p recorded tape (with JVC HD1) on HDR-FX1. Just to be sure if anyone missed that feature like I did.

I more surprised if it didnt play. The HDV spec calls for 720P and 1080i, so for recorders and players to conform to HDV spec, they needs to support both types of HD formats.

I believe the HD1 & HD10 are also able to play back 1080i material. I think it's a requirement of HDV equipment that it handle both formats in playback, (but not recording/shooting).

I think I read it in the spec. sheet before I bought it, but it's nice to see that it is working :).

Can the JVC play back HDV 1080i? Or just D-VHS-format 1080i? The JVC predates HDV by about six months, there was no HDV 1080i when the JVC was released.

Heath, can you check that?

The Sony FX1/Z1 can play HD1 tape through the component outputs only. So don't sell your JVC camera if you want to digitally edit footage your have shot at 720p.

So for clarification, you're saying that the FX1 cannot firewire transfer 720p footage?

I believe it is the same on the Z1, but as there are no production Z1 units yet, so Sony may implement this feature. Note: I doubt it is a high priority for Sony.
