Yes the bigger the better. No pun intended. I been on sets and have seen actors flip out. Like they really know what's going on anyway. Yes, just in case there are some actors out there. There are some who do know what's going on.

What annoys me is when actors start making suggestions to the filmmakers. Nothing sets us off more...

Of course, with HD and HDV on the rise, actors are going to want to be more conscious of their appearance. Even the smallest of skin infractions shows up clearly in HD and HDV.

I may be the only one, but I'll miss JVC's swivel handle when I switch over. It feels so right.

I'll miss grainy HD footage shot under pretty decent lighting conditions, iris and shutter problems, capturing issues, the swivel handle i never used once, not being able to adjust audio independently, focus going out even though I'm centered on only 1 object with a plain background.....JVC's local support telling me that software and firmware updates are coming soon....over a year ago!

Love makes the heart grow fonder? Not!

*L* Looks do count.

I once used an Optura XI on a small 1 day shoot - I had to constantly remind the actors that we were shooting excellent 16x9...

The Sony looks the biz. That's worth 200 bucks right there.

I just chatted with Greg Harrison, director of November. He said the actors (Courtney in particular) were looking to work with a "dirt cheap independant" production and apparently the dvx100 fits the bill for that, at least in Hollywood/LA eyes... *L*
