Yes, I agree. For some reason 30p looks more filmic on monitors then 24p does. 24p only shines when it?s transferred to 35mm. If I were shooting a project that was absolutely not going to see the big screen, I would stick with 30p.
I agree, 100%.

I also saw the DVX100 transfer at DuArt. It looked like grainless 16mm blown to 35mm.

I also saw a test reel and when done by DuArt everything looked good. The Varicam looked best to my eyes.

But I've seen a dozen DV (mostly VX1000) moved to 35mm and they looked OK -- considering the cost.

Saltmen of Tibet looked great! PAL VX1000 transferred by Swiss Effects.

75% of the results are due to the film lab. The rest is the DP. The camera plays a very small part.

Which means -- if the Q of the HD10 is good, 480p60 my look great tranferred by a good lab. It will have a full 480-lines of V rez. Over 525-lines H rez.

But that's the HD10U in SD mode, not HD, right, Steve?

What about using steadicam with everything from an XL-1 to a DVX100 to the higher end SD and HD cameras? What does that reproduce on film transfers? I'm clueless in this area.

I had a good discussion with JVC at NAB and we talked about how folks were missing SD mode.

Using it one gets:
Native 16:9
Full V rez.
No motion artifacts
High temporal rate
AND
the vast, vast majority of plasmas, LCD/DLP projectors do NOT have HD rez. -- in fact most (in 16:9) offer no more than 480 V rows and about 800/1280 H columns. They run at 480p60 natively and are a perfect match to the HD10 in SD mode.

With all due respect -- the video industry seems to have become obsessed with making FILMs. Panasonic and Apple are really pushing this.

My bet is that most money making projects are either making NTSC TV where any camcorder will work -- or creating a CINEMA EXPERIENCE in non-broadcast applications.

These private event presentations will be shown on plasmas or big projector screens. This is where the HD10 may shine.

Well, in that case, I'll shoot 9:04 AM on either the CineAlta, Varicam or the non-HD but digital Ikegami HL-DV7W PAL (and master in HD and transfer to film, too). I'm a digital filmmaker who knows the reality is most theatres have film still.

That's the way I would go.

But don't for get the 50Mbps formats: IMX 25p PAL and Pana's wonderful new SDX-900 which has 24p Frankly, I'd go with either the 900 or the Varicam.

If JVC gets the "Euro" model out with 25p -- that would open an important window for filmmakers.

Maybe Ken could pass the word on this, I would buy a 25p model.

I'll go with the Ikegami camera PAL if our budget can't afford us the 900 or Varicam. If our budget ends up only $75,000 with a quarter or so of that going to our Hollywood star, I'll go with a mini-HD camera (hopefully they'll have 24P or PAL in two years).

If the Ikegami isn’t progressive, I wouldn’t mess with it. I would go with the SDX 900 or Sony MPEG IMX PAL camera, you don't want to mess with an interlace camera when transferring to 35mm. While it can surely be done, and it does happen all the time, a progressive 25p or 24p camera will look much much better in terms of motion. To better understand where I am coming from, rent THE KING IS ALIVE, ANNIVERSARY PARTY or TADPOLE, and pay attention to the motion when the actors quickly move. This is a result of interlace material being converted to 24p.

What did they shoot THE ANNIVERSARY PARTY on? I heard that's the best DV to film, low budget, yet. (Non-HD, of course.)

They shot it on a PAL DSR 500.

Did the motion look all right? My film has a lot of steadicam and stuff I plan on doing.

If you rent it you will see what I am talking about. While the motion in the anniversary party wasn't as annoying as The King is Alive, it was still there. If you have a lot of stedi-cam shots, I would definately stick with a progressive camera. But rent the anniversary party to see what I am talking about. What's wrong with renting the SDX900 or Sony MPEG IMX camera?

My friend is deciding between buying the PAL Ikegami HL-DV7W and the SDX900 and decided the SDX900 isn't ideal for going to hi-def or 35 mm film. He based this on renting both cameras and said in he (and his company's) professional opinion, the Ikegami was closest to the VariCam when the Ike is transferred to HD and 35 mm.
