Canon Camcorders Recording Quality

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
1) I have a Canon XA10 and a HFR17. I want to record an event with both these camcorders. If I reduce the resolution on the XA10 to FXP, is it equivalent to the HFR17 FXP?



2) If not, can I tweak both recordings altering the bitrates until I have identical picture resolutions?



Thanks.

The HFR17s max bit rate is 17Mbps,if you record at 17Mbps on the XA10 with the same frame rate there cam be no problems,most software will edit footage and adjust the Mbps & frame rate in any case.

No point to reduce bitrate. but make sure that frame rate and scanning type are the same.

No point in reducing the XA10Ss bit rate but no gain either on a single project,the frame rate does not matter either as softwares will adjust but no gain in having different frame rates either,all the software i have will mix anything,avchd 50P Mpeg4 avchd 24Mbps downwards HDV or video from a file on the single project timeline with no render problems.

Thank you for your reply.

The difference seems on the quality of the picture of the XA10 which much sharper than the HFR17. I think the CMOS sensors are the culprit in this case. Attached please find a short video showing the different sharpness of the two pictures. The bitrates and frame rates are identical.
