Well skate videos are slowly making the transition to being all HD with alot of the crailtap/Cliche' tour videos and clips and such. I can dig it to tell you the truth, as long as it's not slow-mo or extremely epic or anything. Although that Vincent Alvarez part is just part of the early stages, the only complaint I have is how the skate sounds seem to be louder than the music, which again will probably be fixed in the new Cliche' video. I really liked the reg-mo footage in the 40 minute long HD feature in the final flare though. I'm really excited to see some brand new music that would never work with a video part in regular definition that works in the new HD format of skate videos.

yay.
i know what you're saying about over-epicness and self-indulgent arty bs (ty evans, i'm looking in your direction)
but it can be really cool.
the only real problem is that skateboarding for the most part is tall and narrow. and 16x9 is not.

there's an old saying, "a tool is only as good as the craftsman who uses it."

HD is huge right now and for a reason. If you compare a tre flip from early 90s to one shot right now, you almost enjoy watching the HD one because you feel like your there watching it on the spot and you can see everything from the bushings torquing to the very instant someone catches a kickflip.

Maybe that has alot to do with how style has evolved as well, but HD can make almost anyone look good.

Krooked keeps it old school.

I just think that not all companies should jump into the HD market. And I agree, that if you show shitty footage, why would you want to see shitty footage in HD? I mean, if it's good shit, by all means.

And that Natas part is my favorite ever.

HD is cool, but it's kind of over kill for skateboarding. Imagine having to lug that big ass camera around and doing follow lines with that huge lens. On top of that, it doesn't seem smart to have a 10,000+ dollar camera in some of the gangsta spots people be skating. I did notice a huge difference in the Beauty and Beast DVD though, the Anti Hero footage was in DV and the Girl footage was in HD, talk about a difference. I still dont even have an HDTV.

HD is the new digital, get used to it.

Not long from now, HD cameras will be the size of any other digital video camera.

I'm a big yay for it, but bailgun's 1000% correct about the aspect ratio.  Zooming in on stuff will be a bitch.  But I guess 50+inch TV's kind of take care of that. 

I recently jumped into the HD world, and it's really rad for sports.  Everything else is so-so.  There's tons of nothing going on in the extra space on the left and right of the TV to compensate for people who watch it in standard ratio.

The best feasible use in skateboarding today would have to be filming a mini ramp sesh without the camera moving.  But again, you would have to have a widescenn TV to watch it.

Bottom line is that it will be the standard in a few years, and super fucking sick when it happens.  It's kind of like when websites were hesitant to use flash and shit on their sites because lots of people still had dial-up.

It's the 21st century, embrace it.
