I had recently noticed that the actual resolution of the consumer HDV cameras was around 600 x 600, even though they are recording to 1080 x 1440 pixels (example Canon HV30 http://www.camcorderinfo.com/content/Canon-HV30-Camcorder-Review-34401/Performance.htm). I assumed that, as the lens and sensors got better, the actual resolution went way up. Looking at a comparison of prosumer cameras, the measured resolution from the test charts showed only slightly better resolution on most the cameras here (http://www.dv.com/features/features_item.php?articleId=192501232). I hope Im missing something here. Can someone please explain?
