Would you shoot a wedding in 720/30p?

How about 24p? Would clients be happy with that format?

Everybody else seems to like it. I know I prefer 24p and 30p to 60i. Why wouldn't they?

i was wondering the same thing too. I own the HDR-FX1 right now, but want to sell it to get the HD100. I'm concerned about weddings too.

I like 24p personally. :)

Why not? Especially 24p, that will give your clients that cinema-like look that they see on TV everyday but don't really understandy why it looks the way it does.

I heard that the HD 100 is not a "Low Light" camera, hence is not good for wedding?

ahh.. That might be.. Interesting. You might be able to adjust the gain though to add more light to the picture. Not sure though if it would be enough.

Sorry but how could someone know that when the camera is not even released? I doubt JVC would make that statement.

A couple of things:

1. The HD-100 is more for filmmakers, like the DVX100A.

2. To be honest, other than us filmie and video-y guys, how many people really care? Not many. I offered a friend of mine to rent my HD camera and he said his wedding clients didn't quite care, ie, he couldn't get more money out of them for HD.

I believe people want it to be clear and look good. I feel that most people are more concerned with photos than the video, and if you get too fancy and they don't like the look visually, forget it. And forget about letterboxing in some instances, because they hate that, too. (This is all from a friend of mine who is a full-time wedding videographer who works in South Florida.)

Personally I want a 16x9, HD wedding, maybe not 24p, but HD video FOR SURE!

I want to have a filmmaking camera and the HD100 sounds like it is it. The only thing is that I might do commercials, weddings, and maybe training videos for extra $$. This low light comment made me get a little concerned about using the HD100 in a situation where I can't light properly.

Maybe turn the gain up a little (not too much) for weddings, and get a good little light for interviews, etc.

heh.. great minds think alike. That's what I said a few posts ago. You know, looking at that picture of the HD100 on B&H is just so gorgeous that I think it's drawing me in. I think I've got my mind set on it and there's no turning back. :)
