That sounds good to me!
Steven,

Yes,but if you watch the no-good example carefully,you can see MORE horizontal lines on the EX1 than the A1.

Boy that's the truth. Moire city on the Canon. XH looked harsh. The EX1 looked smoother to me.

Based on what I've read.

Z1U: 540 line Horizontal resolution.
HD 100: 700ish Horizontal resolution.
XH: 800 line Horizontal resolution.
EX1: 1000 line Horizontal resolution.

I'll point out the fact that you get what you pay for. More $ = more rez.

I'm sure we'll have to see more test/shootouts in the future.

Keep in mind that the 1000 lines is based on shooting 1080i according to the literature.

Cheers,

Price doesn't necessarily correlate to resolution, but for the EX1 it looks like you will get something for your money in that regard.

Canon XH-A1: 800 lines, $3250 after rebate
Z1U: 540 lines, $4400 after rebate
HD110U: 700 lines, $4400 with lens
HVX200: 540 lines, $5000 plus memory cards
EX1: 1000 lines, $7000 plus memory cards

(All prices per B&H - rounded up)

The DSC Labs resolution chart I saw also showed near 1000 lines (not quite, but near as dammit close enough) in progressive scan mode too. There was in fact zero change in resolution between i and p modes (and yes the camera was tested with both the shutter on and off) :-)
