Thanks, kspaz, for the refresh '05 link on CSI:Vegas. Recall the digitalcontentproducer.com article indicated this original CSI was sticking with 35mm but the others were going all-digital for the current season. But the CSI:NY this week, mentioned above, had such excellent contrast and detail for digital capture, seemingly exceeding CS:Vegas PQ, that the productions seemed to be getting ambiguous. IMDB.com seems to often list 2010 shows only as 1.78:1 under their tech spec sections, not all the camera changes. Then again, I've been catching CSI Vegas on Fridays from TWC's HD VOD channel, which likely shaves off some of the PQ. -- John
EDIT: Yes, Lee L, Thursday's episode was new. Just watched it on TWC's HD VOD channel.
