If you guys were to shoot in SD which camera would you pick? It is said DVC PRO 50 is comparable
in quality with DigiBeta. I would like to read your opinions regarding the HVX smaller chips and other
considerations. Thanks

If you are not going with the film look I would look at the d35 with a Betacam back. Bigger chips,better lens, better color,less depth of field, just no film look.

Im pretty sure the D35 would give you FAR better light sensitivity, Dynamic range, and less noise to boot. All charchteristics of bigger CCDs.
