    The only Australian channel which simulcasts its flagship "Analog" channel in HD any more is SBS. It used to be 1280 x 720p but they...

    Sorry, somebody on Cinematography.com said the 16th century never happened? Who was that? How would they know?

    Unfortunately I do, although it's not really what people normally understand the term to mean.
    Essentially, people or tings just fade into the background noise and become irrelevant.

    720 x 576 progressive component video can look a hell of a lot better than most people want to give it credit for, particularly if your DVD player has HDMI out.

  13. Does anybody know what cameras are used for "Days of Our Lives"

    It looks like some sort of 35mm-format digital camera, but I've never been able to find out what they actually use.

    35mm stills cameras were originally built for doing quick on-set lighting tests. Doing those with a movie camera inevitably involved several feet of film per test. That made them tricky to handle...

    I have to admit that if you keep your head reasonably still, I suppose the projector I had wasn't all that bad. I mean it was pretty impressive considering its size and the fact that it only draws...

    It's nothing like the earlier concept of a laser...
