    I heard 720 was better than 1080 on the HPX 500. Is this true? Sounds ridiculous to me but you never know.
    Decide.

    1080P is better than 720P.

    720/60P is better than 1080/60i for motion, not just on an HPX500 but on any HD camera. Same with 720/50P over 1080/50i.

    That's what I thought Barry, thanks. Someone just said 720p was the cameras "sweet spot" and that it looks the most filmic. I'll just shoot in 1080 so I have more to work with. Thanks!
    Decide.

    1080 unless you need off speed. Over or under crank.

    I have the distinction very intensively tested, including the journal "professional production" www.professional-production.de.

    The sharpness is not even by 5%, but the memory consumption by 250%! To turn in any case in 720p.

    Hello Cocoa. But how does it come that on the 1080p chart one can read the direction of the homepage (www.df-dok.de) printed on the chart, but in 720p, not? If ther was only a 5% difference in resolution, one should be able to read the URL on both stills.

    IMO Pixel shift gives more detail in real world application (like some letters printed on a paper) than a resolution chart reveals. I belive to have seen this on a couple of examples on this blog.
