lazy ... talk of HD

Since I'm too lazy to sign up for an account, I thought I'd make a comment about this post over at SCI FI Tech.

He makes a comment about 1080p being a format that runs at 60 frames per second, and it 1080p not being compatible with film's frame rate of 24fps. This simply isn't true. Although there is a 60fps format of 1080p, it's rarely used. More common is the 24 or 30 fps format. The 24fps format, obviously, is directly compatible with film's frame rate (which also isn't a standard, you can shoot film at any rate you want, the faster you shoot, the more information per second is recorded. Footage is often shot at 30fps on film to make it more compatible with the traditional video fps of 29.97fps).

Look at me getting all geeky on you and NOT talking about music. Oh well.

For more info, check out Wikipedia or this longer article with more in depth discussion on the subject.
