    All this hype on HDV on the HiDef scene Can folks really live in the professional world with GOP? We've edited both GOP and I-frame and found that GOP is terrible. I much prefer the Intra myself and is ultimately stunning in looks as compared to any GOP.

    Two wrongs don't make a right; but three lefts do.

    There's inter and inter, and intra and intra. And experiences may vary depending on how powerful such as the editing hardware is - try to edit an interframe codec on a weak computer and you'll struggle. Do it on a high performance model and the problem goes away. A bit like comparing diesel and petrol engines, very difficult (impossible) to generalise.

    Here in America this was solidly Sony-only territory until DVCPRO came out; something on the order of 75% of news stations switched to Panasonic then.
    I don't know much about news stations but recently I completed a DVCProHD project for broadcast, we generally us Sony HDCam and get it QC'd at IVC in Burbank so didn't think twice about sending the tape there. Shortly after the tape arrived I received a call asking me what this tape was for and was told that they didn't have a single DVCProHD deck.

    IVC is part of Point 360 which owns something north of 20 large post facilities and between them they have ONE DVCPrHD deck on Highland Drive in Hollywood. Interestingly we chose DVCProHD because the event was on the east coast and we could NOT get 11 Sony HDCam's but getting a truck with that many Vericams was easy.

    It's interesting how territorial this format war has become.

    I think it has little to do with Long GOP or Intra, but more to do with the particular flavour.

    Then before any of that....... codec/lense/other technical bs you can think of.... comes the shooter.

    And it has least to do with interweby thingy propogation of misnomer's.

    Sure is. I guess its important to care less about format and more about your needs and what you can deliver.
