I believe Vidocq is also (I think it's actually the first).

Spy Kids 2 was shot all digital, and I believe the DVD is a direct transfer.

Jason X, although shot on film I believe, was transferred frame-by-frame to digital.

Session 9 was shot digitally, but I don't know whether the DVD was a direct digital transfer.

Yes indeed (at least that's what they claim)... Probably the movie's only quality... Posted Image

Cheers,

I believe that the art-house stinker The King is Alive was shot High Def

Full Frontal was shot with a combo of digital (using a prosumer Canon XL1S) and film. I'm not sure how the DVD is sourced.

Despite the commercials for the DVD claiming so, that's hardly the truth. There are plenty of films that were made digitally and transferred as such.

Don't forget Jackpot, with Jon Gries. Shot with the Sony 24fps cameras.

Lots of recent documentaries as well. The 9/11 one and Startup.com come to mind.

If Prospero's Books (1991) is released on DVD it will represent the first HD acquired feature film.

You're right this was filmed on DV.
Is already out on DVD in UK R2, although only just had its cinema release in US.

I read recently, DVD Times I think, that the last part of 28 days later was shot on 35mm for some pretentious stylistic reason, which is why the dvd is not from the digital source. I haven't seen it, so can't comment.

I saw 28 Days Later at the cinema, and I can't say that I noticed any change from the rather obvious digital video to 35mm in the end sequence. It was a few months ago though, so I could just be remembering wrongly...

There should be a whole lot more 24p DV video coming soon, even from the semipros, thanks to the new Panasonic 24p mini-DV camera. To put 24 frames on DV videotape, it generates 3:2 pulldown in one of two different ways: either the traditional steady 3:2 cadence which is difficult to edit, or a new 2:3:3:2 (AaBbBcCcDd) cadence which can be easily converted to a true 24 frame sequence for editing by simply discarding the middle (Bc) frame of video. Very clever.

Also, I think JVC has announced a <$10000 HD camera.

Actually JVC has a consumer HD camera for around $3,500. I'd be looking at that one, but I'm very tempted by the Panasonic 24P camera.
