Thanks, Dylan, I'll play around with the distance and see if I can come up with something with fewer artifacts.
What is most noticeable about the constrained image is the appearance of ringing or overshoot to the right of hard edges. It gives the image a confused appearance. Actually makes my eyes water! I was trying to capture that in the picture but it seems to be hard to capture the ringing.
It doesn't matter whether the recording is made on a DH30000 or a HD1000. It's entirely source dependent. KNBC Leno broadcasts are "neutral". If the DH30000 is in hidef mode the Leno tape plays hidef. If the DH30000 is in constrained mode Leno shows as constrained. Other source material will force the DH30000 into hidef mode, which is what I used to change the mode of the DH30000 for the photos. The recording capability of the DH30000 is not in question here. It always makes good hidef tapes. The only issue is it's ability to display those tapes in hidef in a reliable way.
Agreed. I should have used somebody else's face from that show.
