Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm against it, in fact I love skating in HD, only it's just a whole different ballgame. Videos like Nike's debacle, Transworld's Hallelujah, the upcoming girl and chocolate video- all shot in HD, all fucking sick. But they have a whole different feel than your standard vx1/mk1 videos. They tend to rely much less on fisheye, and have a lot slower of an editing pace. And it's not just about width, it's about distortion, and also that in 16/9 fisheye, when getting all of your skater in the shot, you have all this empty space on the sides, and its just not fun to watch all the time. i guess it's just personal preference, but it's really hard to watch a super hesh bowl skater or something in HD without all that gritty fast-paced distortion and those warm colors. And in case your wondering, I have shot HD skating, for awhile too, I made an entire full part, I just got sick of it. But anyways, I guess SD is dying either way, so I might as well hop back on the HD train while my dvx is still worth something. Thanks for your guys' input!
