[Morten Ranmar] "Shoot on film - scan to Digibeta, and edit 10-bit uncompressed SD. The film quality will give you a lot of extra resolution - but HDCAM downconverted to Digibeta, will give you nothing over shooting in Digibeta (unless you downconvert through a high-quality downscaler during the capture process)."

I've done 4 TV Movies on HDCAM and there is no comparison between HDCAM and 16mm or D-Beta. On one show we even used 35mm as extra cameras and it's even hard to tell 35mm from the HDCAM. HDCAM is the new medium of TV movies. What's great is you can clone off your NTSC and PAL delivery masters from your 24p master.
