16mm is also (naturally) film and it looks different on the big screen. I agree 720p would most likely look like 16mm when blown up, (but as Tim said, thatís not necessarily a bad thing.) Because even 1080 doesn't really look 100% like 35mm. I personally have never seen anything shot on a Varicam and blown up.
But the great thing about the HD100 in my opinion is that it's the only one between the 4 affordable HD cams that look filmic. All the others either look like video or deinterlaced video. Just my opinion of course. But on the technical side, itís also the only one with full resolution and truly progressive. So in terms of rez power, you made the right decision too.

Good luck with your project.

Don't let specs shadder your dreams or your visuals. Sometimes less can work to your creative advantage.
I actually am shooting 2 edgy films, so you are totally right about it adding that dirty look... its a look that i actually want, and will get without effort i guess!

I totally agree Michael, everything else Iíve seen doesnít come close to what the hd100 can do. Thanks for the luck!

There will be more information on the new film shortly, we are currently in the middle of script re-writes, and as soon as we are registered, i can give more information on it. Thatís the film that we will be shooting much sooner than "Roundabout"

Again if anyone is interested in being a part of the making of these films, or just wanting to ask questions, or be a fly on the wall, please contact us at RoundaboutTheMovie@yahoo.com

If I might add another side to the resolution with filmout discussion... In general, nobody notices a lack of resolution unless it's side-by-side with something of greater resolution. I've projected SD material on a 30 foot screen and it looks great. It helps that it's SDI video all the way from the camera to the projector, but it's SD nonetheless. It's only when you intercut SD video with HD video that you notice how bad it looks. If someone shows a 35mm originated film right before or after you, it doesn't matter what HD format you shot in, it's not gonna match the resolution. Instead, focus on making your product outstanding in other areas.

I think if you're telling a compelling story, even if you're projecting SD, people will forget about the technical details and get into what you're showing them. Don't get hung up over whether you look like film, just focus on making it look good and telling a good story, beacuse the only people walking out of the theater saying "that looked like a 720p transfer to 35mm" are video nerds like us. Everybody else is gonna be saying "I loved that scene where the protagonist confronted her accuser," unless you spent too much time being a technician and not enough time being an artist.

worser nerd

Stephan, if anyone comes out of a theatre saying..."I loved that scene where the protagonist confronted her accuser," I would have to say they might make the nerds in our forum seem pretty un-nerdy.

You think so, even compared to our typical forum member with his face pressed against the screen saying "no resolution, just simply no resolution", throughout the movie? I think we could dominate that geek contest.

Good luck Giuseppe, although I think you should read the post "35mm filmout of HD100 report" and don't do as they did.
