Interlacing is not due to bandwidth constraints, rather, it is used to better represent motion. Interlacing originally appeared in analog sets because the delay from scanning the top of the frame to the bottom with an electron beam was too great to show motion accurately, so instead there are two fields drawn at 1/60th of a second to make up each frame. This is also why interlacing does not reduce the bit rate since you still end up with 60 fields at 1/2 vertical resolution, which is equivalent to 30 frames at full resolution. The fields are displayed fast enough that your eye interpolates the two images into one. This effectively increases your sample rate to capture motion without increasing the bandwidth. 60p does exist on some cameras, but it is hard to find a platform that will play this content whether it be disc or web based. Any interlaced footage should be deinterlaced before uploading for replay on the web.

I presently have a 17" Toshiba XP Pro oper. system , 6 yrs. old
I am looking to buy a i7 Apple Mac Book Pro , 15" or 17 "with at least 4 to 8 gigs Ram , and 500 + gigs of internal hard drive .
Applications to record my live music performances with Logic
(i have an Alesis 16 ch Multimix firewire mixing board ).
Also Final cut pro for editing video .
I am looking for an HD Camcorder , 1080 p ,with mic in and optical zoom , low light capability etc . compatible with the latest Snow Leopard system
Thought about a pocket KODAK Zi8 , or Zoom hd camcorder, or Alesis HD etc
Will I have any compatibility problems with video formats with Snow Leopard ?
Open to other suggestions for other HD camcorders under $300 ...
I love the DSLR Video cameras , but a little too much $ for me now . Maybe later .
Thanks for your easy to understand well done training videos !

This was such a great introduction to the use of a D-SLR for filming. Even a novis could understand, well done.

Just a shout out for the currently fabulous and very comparable GH2 from Panasonic that is NEVER included in any of these roundups. Panasonic has made so many improvements with the GH2 and deserves a place at the table in these discussions. IMHO it should only be Canon and Panasonic in these discussions. Nikon has remained primarily Photo friendly (as one would expect).

I have been around the internet looking for quality information that doesn't talk above me or go above what I need. Well this was the most helpful series I have found. It seems that others don't have the same quality of information out there. Thanks for your hard work on this it was so very helpful.
