Proress 422 and 422 HQ for TV

Hi there,

I am finalising the filming of a documentary series which is aimed at being sold to TV. Myself and my colleague are having problems to decide which compressor should we opt for capturing.

We have been using the C100 and FS700 at times so we're talking AVCHD.

Now, in my understanding, there is no justification in capturing 422 HQ as there is not enough "information" on our files anyway, so it's like storing small amount of eggs in a case too large which ends up taking too much space. My colleague believes that 422 HQ is essentially better.

Am I wrong? I thought that being only 8bits, these cameras will not "yield" more information because the codec type is bigger.

Many thanks,
