Hey Deniis,
what he means is that he eidts the project in HDV, then as a delivery, he downconverts it to SD DVD, in prety much the same way DV woul dbe processed.

Moving onto the other posts, there is no doubt that HD and 16:9 is the future, and HD to my eyes, IS alot more flexible to work with when downconverting. I also like the wider aspect and frame size myself, but even though the clients look at 4:3 converted to 16:9 (dvx) or look at Z1 they havent been able to discern between the 2. Certainly the DVX offers a wider DR, but the shots and techniques are pretty much my standard fare, but to them, teh 43 footage, be it converted, seems to get a better response on colour.
Doesnt make a difference to me either way, as i shoot what i shoot with the tools at my disposal.. i jsut think its wierd that depsite the tech babble, they still go for it...

The HDV models out there have their strengths and weaknesses, like every other camera, but the point im trying to make though, is that when decision to upgrade (like this) is made, to take as much time as you possibly can to work out a system and a camera/audio configuration which works well for your business style, your filming and editing techniques, your delivery options and finally and most importantly your health.

Good points Peter....ya know, I am close to full capacity booked for next year already....and only one client out of all has asked and inquired about HD. I thought I may be forced to go HDV sooner than I wanted to but not just yet. I'm glad because I really want to do my homework hard when it comes to investing in the new technology.
I still shoot with PD150's (which are great cams) and fortunately my clients look at "content" being most important and not what I'm using to get it.

Rates will go up once the gear is purchased.

Betamax had a slicker name than VHS...only thing that came out of that for Sony was the Walkman :)
