HD, or high definition, is creating quite a lot of

interest, due to some very high spirited campaigning

done by the cable networks wanting you to buy HD

boxes to watch HD on television. What you may not

be aware of, is the fact that HD is delivered in

a widescreen format of 16:9 instead of the normal

television format of 4:3.

The average everyday customer has every right to be

confused as to what HD really and truly is, as most

companies involved with it can’t agree on one simple

standard. The standard getting the most support

with HD is 1080i, which means a resolution of 1080

interlaced lines or 720 progressive lines. The

television signals in general will give you 525

lines so the increasing quality is dramatic, if

you have the HD gear to watch the video the way it

was meant to be.

Cameras that offer HD are simply the best you can

buy. They are obviously more expensive than digital

cameras, with some models reaching upwards towards

90,000$ and above! These types of cameras are

normally for professionals, as the average working

man would never be able to afford such an expensive

type of HD video camera.

The average HD video cameras will run 800$ and up.

HD cameras offer you the chance to shoot high

definition picures and videos, and send them to

friends or family. You can also save your shoots

to disk or memory card, then take them with you

everywhere you go.

If you’ve yet to see a HD video camera, you’ll

probably find yourself amazed. The zoom offered

with these cameras are amazing, as many can get

above 100X! Shooting up close and personal is

never a problem with HD video cameras.
