I've been reading lately about the resolution that dvd records in and I guess I'm still unsure how much resolution it can record in. I own some Panasonic dvd recorder decks,(E30, E20 & HS-2), and as far as I know,(and I'm no expert), since they're basically digital recorders they should record from my digital camcorder exactly the same resolution that the camera produced, right? In other words they should produce a picture that's just as good as you would get if you downloaded it on your computer, correct? I'm still learning about these products and have yet to know all of the specs and resolution terms that they have to offer. I own a Sony VX2000 and Sony claims that their VX can record a picture that's up to 530 lines of resolution. That means that when I download my video onto my HS-2 through a firewire cable, it should also be 530 lines, right? And after I edit it on it's hard drive and then burn it onto the final dvd-r disc, that final disc should also be up to 530 lines, if I'm to understand the workings of digital products that is. By the same token, if I had a camcorder that could record in up to 600 lines of resolution and then download it onto one of these dvd recorders, they would also record in up to 600 lines, right? Thanks for any responses. Tunes Man.
