Anyone seen Survivorman?

There is this survival show on Discovery that is apparently shot on a 3ccd minidv camera, and a crappy consumer camera for a secondary... I'm surprised they are broadcasting this show from pure minidv from even a single CCD camera. Has anyone else seen this?

I've got it TiVo'd from last night but haven't watched the whole thing. A couple of places I did see, though, I was getting sea sick real quick. Video quality wasn't bad, just all the moving around and "Blair Witch'ing" going on.

I m wondering how they got that footage out of such minimal cameras! Was it post production magic because most of the stuff I saw was pretty clear quality, apart from the horrendous shakiness

We've discussed Survivorman before. Les Stroud kicks ass.
