Sony PMW-200

Please note that the Bogart 5 O/S will not process the audio in the Sony 422 format found in the PMW-200 family of cameras. It will process audio in the 420 format, but one sacrifices the superior color saturation and video quality by going down to that format. Apparently, the problem is with the 24 bit audio of the 422 while the 16 bit of the 420 works just fine. Hopefully, there will be a fix soon as this camera family and it's especially high quality is gaining rapid acceptance and preference among news and special event producers.
Forgot to add I am using the S-6000

Is that because the audio in 422 recording is LCPM and in 420 a Dolby option is available ? Hopefully LCPM is going to be addressed in a future software tweak, same goes for proper 50/60p frame rate processing !

We found that the PMW 350 (obviously not the same series) would record into Bogart even though it was only PCM audio BUT you would get double left stereo - so left track on the left side and left track on the right side too :oops:

So, along with the Panasonic GH4, there appears to be several "types" of PCM/L PCM :shock:
