Okay...now we're tech talkin. I too am a new devotee to the ZGC/Canon hat that make me look like Fonda in "On Golden Pond". On a recent TV shoot for a new sports stadium I spent the day waiting between shots under overcast skies, with my baseball cap in the VF backwards position. I'm bald. I ended up with a long oval scorch mark on my forehead. I immediately washed and shrank the extra large ZGC hat to fit my sensitive head for future outdoor work. It looks goofy, but it is truly functional for sunny outdoor shooting.

Anyone going to be at the NYC DV Expo in July? I believe I'll be part of a Canon/ZGC/P&S digital film makers roundtable...or are all you guys strictly left coastal?

Jim, I'll be at DV Expo East, and I'm looking forward to meeting you in person there!

I look goofy in any hat, but especially the bucket hat. I can appreciate its practicality, though.

I think that's the first time I've seen news like that.

If only all states had high tech crime bureaus like California.

If only they caught all the guys who ripped us off.

You do realize you wrote 'composite' video, right? Composite video is just one RCA cable. I figure you meant component, and component is the highest quality you can get until DVD players start using DVI, which will probably never happen. And 192 khz, 24 bt it the quality of DVD audio discs, but I doubt that a $78.64 player would support DVD-A.

I guess I wasn't that much help on this, but thats my 2 cents worth.

Admittedly I may have used the component - composite thing wrong, but the specs, Y-Pb-Pr was one of the outputs and the box also touted 192 khz 24bit audio (DVD players double as CD players so it would obviously have CD quality audio), And the price was everything but taxes. Lightening strikes my parents DVD player a few days ago so for Fathers Day I go back and buy an RCA DVD player that plays CD DVD VCD etc. and also stated that if you have picture cd's all you have to do is throw it in and it would play them to?

Thats what I figured, I only pointed it out because I know a lot of people that use the terms totaly wrong, thats why they never undestand them. But more on the audio, CD's would max out at 16 bit, 96khz. I don't know the standard on DVD-V discs, it's probably no better than any other player, but I like Pioneer it's a good brand. Most palyers will play VCD's, but not as many will play the picture CD's. Again, the future is DVD-A. I won't even buy CD's anymore. 192khz is higher than the human ear can distinguish (sp?) but 24 bit sampling means that it will be a truer sound, more like the quality of vinyl! Ive got the Black Album, STP "Core" and Carly Simons "No Secrets" and they all sound amazing in 6.1, unfortunally there aren't too many titles I like yet. A lot of classical and stuff like that.

I have seen a use of Y-Pb-Pr outputs as here in the UK some of the newer projectors that are around have these inputs. So a DVD player can be connected up to these connections.

>until DVD players start using DVI, which will probably never happen.

Bravo makes a DVD player called the 'D1' with DVI output, but a review in Sound & Vision, the D1 analog output is slammed.
I'm not sure that the anlog performance is relevant when the
key feature is a digital output.

Wide dynamic range sensor

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...2793352c2ad678

Basically these guys tell they can reproduce huge dynamic range in the image from 1 to 65000 lux. Now how do we squeeze this into 8bit DV resolution. Looks like a large gamma factor is necessary.

I'm sincerely hoping that 8-bit DV cameras will be a thing of the past in the not-so-distant future...

When can I buy one? :D

If this was implanted in digital camcorders and stuff, it would not only make a lot of peoples video look better, but would change a lot of opinions also.

The idea of using imaging structures with pixel based AGC circuits in order to compress the dynamic range of a real world scene into the display's optical dynamic ranges is not new. When I was at Stanford about 30 years ago involved in CCD, it was already there...on paper.

Robert,
As far as I can see HDR is for stills only, right?
