Barry Green at DVXUser just conducted another camera shootout. The stated reason was to dispell certain rumors that the JVC HD100 performs MUCH better when the action is fast-paced. The rumor itself claimed that when shooting action, the HVX200 became a SD cam.
You can review the screenshots of the Vegas strip. To quote Barry himself, the shootout proved:
A) the HVX is every bit as high-def as the HD100, whether shots are moving or not, and any claim to the contrary is simply and easily demonstratable to be a falsehood.
B) the HVX is clearly, obviously higher color sampling, which should dispel the 4:2:2 vs. 4:2:0 controversy.
C) I could detect no veracity to the notion that there are “overexposure artifacts” in the HVX when in 1080 mode; something that was not part of the initial claim but I figured hey, this was a good chance to see whether there was truth to that rumor or not.
