Most of that is not surprising. I am baffled by the 100+% increase in HDV use. What could possibly make serious users choose a terrible format like HDV? Is the low cost good enough to offset the completely, in my opinion, unacceptable quality? I would use HDV for my home movies and location scouting. That's about it.

I use HDV for some regional spots and it's performed perfectly. It's a great format for what it does. I wouldn't use it for a 40 foot screen but for TV purposes, it works perfectly fine.
