Hi, I just bought the HD100U yesterday. I have a shoot coming up tomorrow and was wondering if you could give me your opinion.

If I shoot 24P HD I know I have to downconvert the images to SD and I heard that downconverted HD is even worse than SD??? Is that true? Should I just shoot 24P SD?

The final output of the product will probably wind up on DVD, so I am not planning a film transfer or anything, so which option should I opt for?

Thanks a lot

Hi,

I'd definitely shoot the hi def. I find that downconversion looks considerably better (I have an HD100 I'm reviewing right now, and I'm looking at all this stuff).

Phil,

Looking forward to your review on the HD100. Is it for Showreel magazine?

Hi,

It's not so much a review as an objective look at the frame-rate options that are being offered - what exactly is "cineframe" on the Sony gear, etc.

The only reason I've been waxing poetic about the HD100 is that it's the one I got first...
