Tony,

You said, "but even on an ultra-wide large TV screen the performance from a good HDV camera will begin to show against the miniDV."

Can you tell me why that is? No matter how big it is, unless it's an HD TV, the resolution will be the same as DV. Why would it look different than anything else shown on the same screen at the same resolution?

HDV has more resolution then DV...
Or else I'm just understanding your question wrong?

(kinda a bump) Don't forget about the film "28 Days Later" that was filmed on the XL1s. The film looked superb and was great on the Big Screen.

Indeed Kyle, the subject has been beaten to death here (do a search on 28 days later/ but I still think it holds true: the movie looked very good for a dv cam on the big screen, especially the second part!

It wasn't even the XL1s, it was the good old XL1.
But we won't talk about the expensive lenses they used and the very expensive post production the images went trough :-)
But still a very nice example that prooves if you handle minidv as film (with that I mean actor's, lightening, camera movement, editing,...) resolution isn't that important.

I know that's a little bit funny coming out of my mouth, as I am the one who started this thread, but I think I decided I don't need 35mm images, I just want good images.
