Hi-Def Cameras
Hi folks,.

Originally posted in "Open Talk"...not sure where it should have gone...???.

New guy here looking for some info on available hi-def point and shoot cameras. I have been using a Canon A95 for years and have since upgraded my home theater to include a hi-def tv. I'd like to be able to display my own pictures in hi-def...any recommendations from the pros would be greatly appreciated..

Check out the Sony Cameras. I know that they say they are HD something on the box in the stores. I am not sure there is a standard for that though.Ben..

Not really into that myself, yet, but I believe it kind of depends on the types of inputs your TV will take. If it will take computer output direct, like vga, DVI or HDMI inputs, then you might be able to simply use it as an external monitor. You may also be able to copy them to a CD or DVD and display that way..

What I'd check for is the resolution of the set and try some sample images sized to fit. I've read that some lose some display size to the edges so the full 1920x1080 may not show, etc. Also, there's no reason to have a higher resolution on the display file than the set resolution - this avoids either a scrolling situation or just slower handling or larger files..

The other thing to look at is the image aspect ratio, the screen size for hd is wider than the older tvs or the typical image sensor and print sizes, so while a few cameras offer hd aspect ratios, most don't and you'll need to consider that when shooting/cropping...

Practically any modern digital camera has higher resolution than HDTV. The highest resolution on HDTV (1920 x 1080) is only about 2 megapixels..

Most digital cameras do not, however, have built-in HDTV outputs...
