View Full Version : Canon XF305 1080/30p?

07-19-2012, 12:04 AM
I've got a brand new Tricaster 455 and a brand new Canon XF305 connected to the 455 via HD-SDI cable.
I can't get the Tricaster to recognize any signal from the XF305 higher resolution than 1280x720. Doesn't matter which camera input I connect it to or what input format setting I choose for the camera, no image appears on Tricaster preview.
This should work, right? Anyone have an XF305 that they've successfully connected to Tricaster at 1920x1080/30p?

Hey Chris, do you know exactly what kind of cable you are using? How long is it? 1080 is a bit harder to transmit than 720.

When you say 1080/30p are you talking 30p or 30PsF? I think it needs to be p (not PsF).

Try 1080i and see if that works.
