A couple of readers have been a bit miffed over my choice of HD rather than 4K when filming Tuesdays interviews at the Panasonic event in London.
All the footage on the internet around the DVX-200 is 3040 x 2160 (16:9 4K) edited down to HD. We all know how the camera performs in 4K but no one had seen original HD footage from the Panasonic DVX-200 and thats how a lot of end users will be using this camera.
The majority of run and gun filmmakers in the UK are editing on HD, UK broadcasters are still outputting SD ! It makes complete sense as a filmmaker to show off the DVX-200 filming in HD as many end users will start with HD footage but still have the ability to upgrade to 4K in the future.
Please remember this is not a review, I do admit it might have been more useful to have recorded at least one interview in 4K but when the clock is against you its easy to forget.
