Give it time. HD cameras have only been in serious use in film production in
the last several years, and it seems to make a big difference how you use
them. People are only recently getting used to these cameras and learning
their properties, and already the results can be quite impressive. I can't
see how things won't continue to improve, and now that HD prosumer cameras
are available at reasonable prices, the number of people and know-how out
there is bound to continue to grow.
