They are very different cams. It's like comparing a TV with a computer monitor.

Agreed. Apples and oranges.

In the main I would agree with this review, though my knowledge of the DVX100 is limited. The JYHD1OU IS an excercise in extremes. It is capable of some incredible pictures, I believe way beyond what you can achieve with the DVX100 in terms of detail, which is the all important factor for large screen projection. But I think we are going to need to study the camera in detail to know how to best achieve those pictures, and learn to shoot around the many problems that the consumerish design of the cameras controls presents us with. I've no doubt that in terms of a working tool the DVX100 is a much better camera. But I love a challenge, and this cameras pictures can be so tantalizingly beatiful with their rich detail, when they are shot right, that I want to work with it.
For me, I don't consider any of those DV cameras in the sub $5,000 range, such as the XL1 or the DVX100 to be "professional" tools, as they are so much touted to be, they all have their major problems. So, for purely artistic non-commercial work, I would prefer to work with a camera tha does not falsely claim to be "professional" and yet delivers a much more "professional" picture in many respects.

p.s. I now hate the word "professional", Microsoft have abused it way too much.

I first started hating that word 24 years ago when my sons kindergarten teacher became very upset with me when I didn't agree with her that my son's timidity was reason enough to hold him back in kindergarten. She became quit a huffy 40'ish, hold-over from the 60's hippie type, sliding out of her "groovy" into her "Well, I'm a professional" rhetoric, and her "I think I know what's best for your son" attitude.

Didn't sit very well then. Now whenever I hear "professional", that very sorry and pitiful "professional" pops into my mind. Not a very pleasing thought I can assure you.

As long as we're talking about misuse of words, how about the claim that this was a "shootout". More like an exercise in absurd hyperbole.
