No. I believe is resolving at least 100-120 lines more vertically, and more horizontally as well.

Yeah, Barry I don't know who "Coursedesign" is (yet), but Scratchpad is on my personal web site. It is also linked from David's Cineform blog.

I readily acknowledge that I'm a hobbyist and not a test engineer. So we need to really arm-twist others (A.J. deLange, you reading this???) who also have production H1's to verify my crude rez tests, and more.

It was also a pleasant surprise -- if validated -- that despite Canon's claim to the contrary, the SD 20x and 3x lenses did almost as well in this limited "sweet spot" testing as the new HD 20x. I was planning on selling my 3x along with my XL2; don't think so now unless it turns out my test was fatally flawed.

I don't have HD SDI (yet), so really hoping someone out there can put the H1 through the paces using that, either uncompressed or via Cineform Intermediate.
