    Codec, I can understand the whole limitation thing. But sensor size? That I don't get. Why not allow the use of 1/3" chips? I have a DVX, and I feel that in every situation I have been in, the 1/3" chips performed just as well as a 2/3" chip camera (except obviously in low light, but I never received one complaint about low light shooting). Now with this new U.L.T. technology, 1/3" chips are gonna be even better in low light.

    I mean, look at Deadliest Catch, when they switched over to HD, they were using Sony Z1s. 1/3" chips, HDV codec, and it looked fine. It wasn't as great as watching a movie on Blu-Ray in 1080p, but it was passable HD. A better codec would have retained more information, but the whole chip size limitations I don't understand.

    They both are switchable.

    I've bought a HPX371 and my test have shown that fine detail smears into a mush when you pan. It then quickly returns the detail after the pan. This seems to happen in all modes whether 'P' or 'I'.
    I think this is the result of the anti-skew firmware.

    Has anyone else found this?

    Check your shutter settings. It is possibly if shooting in 24p, without the 'shutter on' that you are shooting at 1/24 of a second and inducing a lot of motion blur, Peteremery.

    Does that happen on DVCPROHD also?

    Any resolution (pun intended) to the momentary mushy issue?

    Late to the party, but..
    Since the BBC has approved the 1/3" 3MOS Canon XF300/305 with 50mbps, 4:2:2 sampling for full acquisition, has the HPX370 been approved? How about for Discovery?
