Maybe jvc'll come out with there own solid state professional media as well, just to keep our heads spinning.

Would JVC still call a 10880P format "PROHD?"
Anybody see large screen hd200 vs ex1 footage?

Basically...I would be using the camera for mostly cinematography, light sports, and light event or studio news broadcasting.

If you compare the formats don't let the 720P or 1080I fool you.
As the 1080 is interleased, you have only half the resolution.
And progressive is the way to go. By the way 720P can be upscaled beautifully to 1080 without having to deal with de-interlacing.

Untrue. 1080i has more scan lines than 720p which gives it more spatial (sharpness) resolution. Thus, non-moving shots are more crisp than 720p. However, 720p has a better temporal resolution (motion) because of the common use of vertical blurring to avoid twitter in 1080i and interlace artifacts.

A 1080p display actually holds in memory one field of 1080i as the other is added, and then both fields are electronically joined together to form a 1080p image, but it is not a full 1080 lines of vertical resolution because of what I explained earlier.

In the U.S., Fox, ABC and ESPN prefer 720p, and CBS, NBC, HBO, Showtime and Discovery HD prefer 1080i. I understand that in Europe, most broadcasters prefer 720p.

Somehow this thread has become a platform war between 720p and 1080i. We don't do platform wars on this site. Besides, the argument does not make much sense because 720p = 1080i in bandwidth. Please keep this topic focused on the cameras themselves and the differences between them.

There is no point in arguing 720p vs. 1080i here. Both are HD and if used correctly both will produce beautiful images. Thanks in advance,
