Obviously, certain scenes are more noticeable than others. NTSC seems to handle it better than Pal, and, although not perfect, is adequate for the V1U. [edit] [/edit]

My honest opinion...properly used and considering the price and what you get... The V1 is still the best under $5k camera to date. For me... since it is so close to NAB, I'm waiting to see what rolls out. Of course, I absolutely hate the HDV compression method.

Peace all
Close but no cigar!

It's the DSP not encoder. [edit] [/edit]

Steve Mullen has made a huge effort to deflect criticism of the V1 to deinterlacing schemes. Well done! But wrong.

All V1s a affected and it has NOTHING to do with deinterlacing.

Guys, this subject has been beaten to death, had 3 threads merged, and constantly requiring edits due to personal attacks, rumors, claims of "insider information," and conspiracies.
It's time to move on.
If you have new information on the topic that hasn't been hashed out in this one, please begin a new thread.

Brett, thank you for posting new footage for folks to play with.
