I agree the anchor shots are too tight. Perhaps it could be make the change more obvious to viewers for the introduction of HD.
The quality looks very good, one other small niggle I have with the new format also is the graphics animation motion, it is really too busy and distracts from the viewers ability to focus on the anchor or the video content being shown.
Congrats you and everybody that made the transition to HD at WYFF4 possible, as you've mentioned before the technical complexity involved with HD production is something to behold.
How about a small news package that shows a little more of behind the scenes especially the new control room equipment? Of course they can put you on air too, right? (-:
Just one suggestion.....
Maybe at some point they can reduce the number of banners with motion.
It is especially annoying when there is the traditional box content next to the anchors head, the scrolling bars are extreme.
