I am thinking of buying a HDV camcorder which is going to be used apart from filmmaking , in TV programs which have to be shot in 4:3 frame ratio. I was wondering which HDV camera has the capability to shoot in high resolution mode without compromising standard DV mode.Any ideas are welcome.

Hi,

Do you really need a HDV camera then?

Please in future only ask a question once. With the question on 4 forums the thread won't get very far. The 'view new posts' will show any new post to forum users so everybody who is interested will see it.

The plan is to shoot a short film as well which will be tranfered to 35mm film for projection, apart from using the camera for shooting TV programs in 3:4 aspect ratio. This is why I am thinking about buying a HDV camcorder.
