Wow, big monster thanks for those, Tim. Not only are they a good comparison between the two lenses, they're a great reference for the all different detail settings.

(I recommend anyone wondering about the detail settings, particularly the Horizontal and Vertical sub-settings, download these.)

WOW! that looks much better to me. It would be interesting to now have people compare the HD100 with the 13x lens and the other fixed lens HD cameras to see the results in detail. If the HD100 "only" at 720p could hold it's own compared to 1080i cameras then now it would look even better with the better lens. Those with the fixed lens cameras are stuck with that lens with no hope of ever getting a better lens. I'm sure as time passes HD lens options will get even better but the fixed lens cameras will still be stuck with the same lens technology

As of right now the HD100 is the only HD camera in this price range that at least has an option for a high quality HD lens. The Canon right now only has it's main 20x lens.

Holy crap. That looks like the same amount of difference between the HD100 and the Varicam when I was in on the 4 cam/Adam wilt test.

I think close scrutiny of the charts would show that my above statement is hyperbole, but I think it takes the HD100 a place very close to the Varicam, based on just pure res.

13x vs. 16x

We shot last weekend with 2 cameras - A cam was Tip's with 13x, I was running B cam with stock lens, mainly shooting close-up inserts etc. not matching shot. But there is an obvious difference in the 2. The 13x has an overall quality from edge to edge that is outstanding, while I would rate the 16x as being just adequate. Anyone doing high-end HD for delivery to channels like Discovery or PBS should invest in the 13x - it turns the HD100 into a true pro tool.

Thanks to Tip and Paolo for coming out and making it a fun shoot!

Thanks for the kind words...

Lance,

Thanks very much for the nice post. Much appreciated! Everyone was very professional and the shoot really was fun. I did enjoy working with you, Paolo, John and the rest of the crew very much.

And that ice cold pitcher of Bass afterwards was as good as it gets, next time I won't wimp out after one. Thanks Paolo!
