i thought ALL prosumer digital cameras have 530 LOR (in 4x3 of course) and 480 on a television. am i wrong?

I think most say promuser dv camera's ie vx2100 - pd170 (unless in DVCAM mode then it's 550) advertise they offer 500 lines of horizontal.

but in catalogs...... VX2000 and in general all Sony cameras say "up to" 530 LOR. probably a gimmick, cause then the 1 chip trv70 i have would put out the same resolution as the vx. which im pretty sure it does not, in comparing the images from each. Some 1 chip canons even claim 540 lor. oh advertising.........

err not all are advertised as such, just the high end consumer models.

Just a note.. even if the final output is say 720x480, a camera that ha higher resolution CCD's will always make a better photo.

DVD is 720X480 but look how good it looks when the original footage is 35mm.

it doesnt say though "ONLY 480 LINES on a 4x3 television"
ever wonder why it looks better on your computer than on your television?

Prob'ly because the computer is progressive-scan, can display millions more colors than a TV, has better contrast, and is almost always set to a resolution much higher than a TV, so the video appears smaller, and as such, better -- even at 720x480, not 540.
