It's the dead of winter here in Minnesota and we're getting some very frigid temps coming in. I'll see what I can manage for you.

I'd question the point of comparing an early 1-chip HDV camcorder to one of the most mature 3-chip DV models, which currently sells for maybe twice the price. A more relevant test would be the Sony FX1 versus the DVX100, and I shot some footage this week on these two cameras plus several others which will be available soon on the WEVA forums. From what I could see on the viewfinders the DVX100 appears to produce a pleasing SD image, but in general I've yet to see any SD footage which holds up well when compared to decent HD footage on an HDTV display.

For SD delivery it's a more level playing field, but even that gets tricky when you consider widescreen vs. 4x3 issues. The DVX100 I used this week had an anamorphic lens adapter on it, which may be a useful way to extend the life of SD cameras as we head into the HD era. But if you're thinking of buying a new camera today, why not consider the HVX200 instead of the DVX100? With the HVX you get widescreen DV recording to miniDV tape and the potential for high-quality HD recording in the future, once the cost of recording options for the HVX comes down to reasonable levels.

At today's going prices, used, an HD10U would be quite viable for acquiring 16:9 (in good lighting) to downconvert to SD, IF the HD10U offered reasonable control of the image. It will almost certainly outperform (again, in good light) a 3 chipper that uses sub 400k pixel resolution 4:3 chips without an anamorphic lens.
