I have a job tomorrow with the HDX900. I've never used the camera before and I'm wondering if it has a built in downconverter like some of the other newer HD cameras. Anyone know?
Thanks.

I would check with the rental house but... I have used the camera a bunch and all had the downconverter. I think all HDX900's do.

The HDX900 has a built in down-converter. There's a manual switch on the operator's side under the little lid/door, HD/SDI/VBS. The switch needs to be in the VBS position. And, if I can remember correctly you can only get it from the VIDEO OUT in the back of the camera.



Have FUN!
