Joseph will be back. When things get a bit warm he usually departs---last time he was going to some unamed place to work on a script with an Academy Award winning writer (of course he wouldn't tell us who he was!) I suspect that his mode of transportation is a black helicopter and his final destination is area 51. Bon Voyage--take a couple of extra weeks1

"if you buy one marla be sure to get the HD10, not the 1, the oversharpening destroys the picture quality in the hd1 (what i have and will probably trade up for the HD10 soon)."

Is there actually a difference in the picture quality between the HD1 and HD10? i thought they were the same. If this is true what is different that causes the oversharpening on the HD1. Is this like edge enhancement? I've seen clips from both cameras and I am not sure I can tell the difference and I am using a Dwin TV3 on an 8 ft screen to view.

I will probably purchase one of these soon but I am not sure if the HD10 is worth the almost $800 price difference. I can get the HD1 for about $2500 and the HD10 for $3300. Is the HD10 worth an extra $800? I don't think the added resolution of the viewfinder in the 10 would justify this difference but if there is truly a difference in picture quality it might. The camera will be only for amateur use.

The LS-110 has component inputs, but of course you still do get signal degradation. But I'm getting the sense from everybody (or I'm just deluding myself) that there is enough "HD-ness" left after the component conversion to make it still worth it.

The LS-110 is indeed very sweet. And of course the price continues to move south.

Now I have to decide how unethical I am. Do I try and pretend that the HD10 is an incredibly generous birthday present for my husband? Or do I 'fess up that the camera is for myself? ("But darling, I only got the camera so that I can record how handsome you look in your new birthday-present tube socks....")

By the way - now that we have established that the rules of shooting film must be followed to avoid "ghosting", can anyone recommend a nice "Rules of Shooting Film for Dummies" book or website? Not looking for a supercondensed version of a 4-year degree, I just want to be warned about the most bonehead of amatuer mistakes.

Do please respond to my post quickly - Condoleezza Rice is sending me to the Middle East solve the pesky PLO/Israeli problem, and I must stop and pick up Kofi Annan on the way...

'rules of shooting film' should really be applied to everything that you want to be graceful and beautiful. 30p and 24p have just enough frames that the eye buys the movement but that it can easily be tracked. so of course its important to shoot accordingly...anyone who thinks its a fault of the camera should look to whoever is behind the camera first.
