Price is right; compatibility is subpar
 
On the surface, this deck looks like a great solution for a nonlinear loader, and that's why I bought it. But the sad fact is that it only recognizes JVC's particular flavor of HDV. Yes, it's fine for DV, DVCPRO-25, and DVCAM, the three varieties of DV. But while I can still control the deck when I have a Sony-originated or Canon-originated HDV tape in, I can not see or hear it in FCP. I wish JVC would make this clear in its literature and marketing materials. Finally, I would definitely re...

Big Features Small Footprint
 
I've used a DSR-DVCAM for years and this new unit let's the old SONY rest. Not only will it take the full size DVCAM tapes, it also plays back about everything in the Mini DV market and will either upconvert or downcovert with ease, both HD and DV. I bought the unit to accompany the JVC HDV1100 U camera to capture 720/24 material and it has all the features and relative easy of simplicity that JVC builds into menus.
