      This is a really dumb question! I admit.

      Hey all – I’ve got a Canon XL1s (NTSC) – I assumed that it recorded in 720×480, as when I edited stuff in Final Cut Pro and exported it out in Quicktime, that’s the resolution that was produced. But now I’m started to think that actually, it’s recording in 640×480 and that my exported videos are stretched slightly. So dumb questions…

      – What is the native resolution for the XL1S/DV ?

      – Should I be producing stuff in 640 or 720? I can’t find the option in FCP which lets me export out at 640×480 …

      yours, somewhat confused. thx!
