Regarding 'film look'- yes the technology and gamma settings are pretty much the same. Panasonic has owned 24p in this market for years. Regarding final file size- that's kind of irrelevant. You can downconvert HD to whatever frame resolution and data rate you need and it's going to look better than starting in SD to begin with. But good look upconverting SD to HD without spending a few bucks to get to acceptable.

I'm not saying the DVX100 isn't a great camera. It is- but it's 8+ years old now and to totally ignore HD is not a good call for most businesses. Not when you can easily shoot HD, 2K even 4K with cameras that have been out for a few years now.
