is 530 horizontal resolution a good resolution or can you base a camcorder on the horizontal line only ?
Camcorder resolutions are always measured in horizontal lines. 530 is a good resolution.
Standard resolutions of popular video formats: VHS, 8mm – 250 lines; S-VHS, Hi-8 – 400 lines; Beta – 400+ lines; MiniDV – 500 lines; DVCAM25, DVCAM50 – up to 600 lines.
Hank, you’re right about generation loss which favors 8 mm against VHS, but in terms of resolution they’re equivalent.
