    Default Combining HD and SD or Combining HD with Flip or iPhone4?

    Hi

    I am going to be shooting some interviews soon. The main camera is an XHA1 which I would like to use in HD mode. During the interview, I would like to use a 2nd camera to get some close ups of the subject or just a different angle for visual interest. The problem is I only have an old consumer JVC Everio SD cam available to me. Am I right in saying the only way I can combine the HD and SD footage, would be to have the SD footage as 'picture in picture' ? I'm guessing that wouldn't make good viewing? Is there any way around this, other than shooting everything in SD?

    The JVC camera is a bit rubbish all-round really. So what about these HD Flip cams or the iPod4 ? Will that work for combining HD footage with the XHA1?

    I don't know where you heard this, I have mixed HD and SD footage on the same time line no problems. If you mean the JVC only shoots 4:3 ratio, you can fix that in post with cropping. Use a letter box mode if the JVC has it. Just make sure the two cameras have the same white balance etc. This will help mixing the clips in editing.

    Ah yes, I appear to have been confuzzled. I'll have to check if my little JVC does widescreen. However, despite being only 3yrs old, the quality is generally rubbish and it's auto focus is terrible.
