Blu Ray was developed as an Interlaced format. Not sure why you want to deliver in 1080p? Not unless you are moving into the digital-mastering-for-movies industry (30-40mb/s). There is often much discussion about the benefits of one over the other but I'll leave it to other people to support their preferences.

I deliver Blu Ray at 24mb/s (27mb/s combined) via Sony Z5 and Sony NX5 encoded to MPEG-2 at a max setting of 30mb/s, although H.264 will give some effeciency in the delievery viz file size to running time. The results are excellent. I wouldn't describe the Blu Ray results produced at about 24-30mb/s as "fuzzy" far from it. But I'm not privy to your workflow or encoding.

If at all moving to XDCAM (or other 35mb/s cameras and 4:2:2) would provide a marginal improvement, but little in the way of a cost-benefit for clients able to see the difference.

I still like the look of the EX3 but think I'll hold off looking at the 305 again (I wasn't convinced) until after NAB 2011 as manufacturers have a habit of sneeking in something for NAB.

Pete, thanks a lot for that. My wife who couldn't attend appreciated having a look at the show that I was raving about to her:-)

BTW She would like to know what microphone you were using as it's very good at capturing your voice while excluding background noise (unless you went into the studio & did overdubs :-)

Not sure if there has been some miss communication here. I wasn't saying Blu-ray was fuzzy. I was saying I wasn't willing to ship footage from my older cameras on Blu-ray, because the footage from them was not up to the task. That's why everything is being / has been replaced.
