Need to know about HD?

Videoguys has a brilliant “Guide to Understanding
HD Formats
.” There is lots of detail in this guide, so pay attention.

We have been asked about HD at Hearken Creative. We have no HD cameras yet, and have edited only one small project on HD. But we have up-rezzed the movie The Fair Trade to HD for presentation at a film festival, and it went very smoothly. But the need isn’t there just yet. As soon as the need is there, we will be looking at several cameras: the old-ish Panasonic HVX200, the Sony EX3, and of course whatever RED has in our price range when we go shopping.
