Regarding zooming in on HD footage for SD delivery - this produces a beautiful image in Vegas, but with Premiere, there is a definite quality loss. So, while I am a Premiere editor (using Matrox RT.X2 hardware), I jump over to Vegas just to zoom certain clips then export them out for use in Premiere.

Adobe just can't get some things right - HDV to DVD still doesn't work well and users have to do workarounds

Maybe you can consider getting the MRC1K. This way you have best of both worlds. Shoot DV on MRC1k and HDV on tape. You can edit faster because less time wasted importing video, and you can still go closer if needed and import that shot from HDV tape.

I guess I have to pull out the manual. I tried to do that the last time I shot and it didn't work. Somehow both were recorded in HDV. That is what I wanted though, DV on card, HDV on tape. I'm catching up on work right now and will be a little slower for the next 2 months so I'll try to experiment.

I got the opportunity to shoot some sideline video of high school football games. The first night I shot in HDV and noticed some blurring effect which seemed like it could have been a codec issue. Too much changing too fast, frame to frame. The second weekend, I recorded in DV widescreen and all of the blurring issues were gone. And the footage looked really good in either format.

The moral of the story: Shoot in DV widescreen!
