A preliminary test of the Canon 7D vs Sony HD Cam. I will need to do this test again in the future. The shots weren't synched up enough and I had a tough time editing the 1920x1080 video on my system. I kept getting "Data Rate Errors" when capturing the HD Cam footage. The footage locked up my computer everytime I hit the space bar to play it so I had to just click on points on my timeline to jump around the footage. Apparently, I will need a more powerful machine to work in 1920x1080.
Also, the 7D footage was 24p and the HDCam footage was 60i so next time, we'll need to match things up a bit more closely.
Here's a link to some behind the scenes photos and blog post about our test:
