Holy tits, just got the HDDVD of picture this. the film has been discussed already, but the HDDVD is insane, just a totally different experience. every single company that films in HD should do this next year if they can, you get both the normal DVD and the HDDVD for only £3/$6 more than the DVD version on its own.

first movie company that has actually been able to claim HD. remember kids, if you shoot with an HD camera and put it onto a normal dvd, you aren't selling a high definition movie. (goes for berman too)
but the thing is, "filmed in hd" means literally nothing if it's not put onto an HDDVD/blu ray and watched on an HDTV. haha. it will be put into SD in the final stage and cameras like the DVX put most consumer HD cameras to shame in SD format. it does make sense though, when a company says "filmed in hd" a lot of people make a big deal out of it therefore they get more sales. haha maybe everyone should just claim that the movie was "filmed in hd". :)
picture this sucked haha, just because it was in HD and all artsy doesnt make it good in my mind. imo it lacked content and had too many (i want to say lifestlye shots), like so many that they i was so bored watching it. to me this was snowboardings version of matchstick, with all the slowmotion shots and stuff.
1080p isnt part of the SMPTE HDTV spec. meaning while it is possible technically to have content in 1080p, it uses a work around based off of 1080i to make it look like its 1080p even though its still based off of interlaced fields
and no, i swear im not a nerd! well maybe a little....

I don't have anything witty for my current signature. I apologize for time you will never get back from reading this waste of space.
Most Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs are native 1080p60 or 1080p24.
For film based material, 1080p24 is the purest signal format because it does not require 3:2 pulldown to convert films' 24fps to standard 30fps (due to most TV's 60Hz refresh rate). However, most TVs, even if they except 1080p24 inputs, do not display the signal at 24fps (or 48fps, which is simply a doubling of the frame rate.)
Read the fine print when TV shopping kids! And, no, the Best Buy salesman does not know what he's talking about.
1080i means that the film is interlaced......In an interlaced video system, only half of the lines making up the frame are shot at a time. For example, the camera might capture only the odd frame lines first, then capture the even lines second. If the frame rate of an interlaced video system is 25 fps, it has 50 fields per second. ...
720p is progressive meaning there is no interlacing at all there is also 1080p but i doubt that many people have a 1080p tv.
I beg to differ, the better the Acquisition format the more information (resolution, color depth) there is and the more information remains after compression. If the opposite was true, why would they bother shooting TV commercials or films on hidef, S-16 and 35 if they'll end up on a compressed support such as broadcast TV or DVD?
Agreed that the DVX pust most consumer "HD" cams to shame, but then again with HDV, the only thing Hidef is the frame size, the colors and compression are worthless.
Agreed that films will look way better on a hidef TV with hidef DVD.
