2 questions please:
Does quality suffer? Is there any difference when recording on tape with the canon xha1 as opposed to using the external hard drive option. Is anything lost in the Firewire transfer.
I appreciate that using the hard drive system allows you to dump your recorded material straight off the drive onto the computer with out having to transfer it in real time.
If the quality from using the tape is as good can anyone recommend a decent firewire cable and system.
Thanks in advance.
