With the introduction of such economical, yet cutting edge camera technology that is available to the young Avid and Final Cut Pro User, never before has there been so many choices of workflow that you have to consider before taking that first shot. Are you shooting in 24pa, squeezed 16:9, true 16:9, letterbox, HD, HDV, and possibly the question that supercedes all the others is, " who is your target audience?" Well, lets take a look at that particular question.

Without getting into the logistics behind tranfering DV to film, let's say that your project will mainly be seen by people while in their homes, sitting in front of their television sets. Given, some are biting the bullet and investing in 16:9 sets or televisions that can switch between anamorphic and standard, there are still many who tune into ER on Thursday nights with a 1985 19" Sylvania. The point I'm trying to make is that with the wide array of hardware to capture and review footage in circulation, you may have questions?

Here is a conversation between industry professional discussing shooting 4:3 vs 16:9 via the Panasonic DVX-100a. This is good stuff!
