Not sure if someone already posted this but you can find sample footage here for the HD100. Cool ehh ? This is what I am getting.

That footage has been talked about, yes. That was a shoot put together by three DVInfo.net/DVXUser members, primarily Charles Papert & Nate Weaver, and I went along to help out.
Not quite sure how you could be getting the same results though -- the mini35 plus the lenses cost $60,000...
I clicked on the link and tried to play the sample footage that they have. It didn't work, all that popped up was a long list of codes. I even tried downloading the link and that didn't work either. What type of player plays m2t files? Or is there a different link which has .mov or .mpg files?

The .m2t's are MPEG files, they're MPEG-2 Transport Streams, which is the native format captured off the camera tapes.
Try playing them back in Windows Media Player. Or, you can try downloading the clips and changing the file extension from .m2t to .mpg.

man that footage looks crazy good. Kind of unsettling that a 19 second clip is nearly 50MB! But then again, if its uncompressed thats really good for HD.

Its not uncompressed it has the same data rate as miniDV hence, if you had 19 seconds of miniDV footage it too would be around 50MB.
Thats the whole point of HDV, by using MPEG compression technology HD that would otherwise require a much bigger bandwidth can be "squeezed" into a miniDV tape. Does this make it a comprimised format, in some situations indeed. However this route does allow to have HD using already existing technology at a price point that is in the consumer/prosumer range.

Hee hee... the regular footage Barry not the mini35...
Just to clear that up

Hey Barry...is there a cheaper way I can acheive that kind (mini35) of depth of field?
For example could you recommend a used lens that I might find on ebay?
What is your choice of Soft filter?

The "cheaper way" to get that look is to use the adapters from Guerilla35 or Micro35. However, neither will work on the HD100 in quite the same way as the mini35 does. I don't know how well they would work with the HD100.
