Re: What's wrong with MiniDV?
I guess it all has to do with the look you're going for. I definitely think that miniDV is alright for documentaries, perhaps even for live stage shows, but, in my perspective, no footage shot on digital video can compare to the glossy texture of film. I have seen people that apply filters on AfterEffects to miniDV footage, but, even though it comes close, it's never the same.
But then again, it all depends on the director's vision I guess.
