I’m getting more and more into video, but my brother in law (who shoots documentaries with PBS and a few other networks, is finishing his first self produced documentary (Cape Spin) that’s being shown in International Film Festivals, Sundance Channel, etc… shot the entire thing in 720p.
That being said… as Bruce mentioned, you could probably get away with shooting in SD and make the file much more manageable, but also, like Bruce said, I’d prefer to shoot in a higher res to account for any zooming, etc., so I’d do 720p.
Best of luck!
