Have had my HD tv for over a week now and we are slowly getting used to the difference. Just wanted to know if it is common to others here. When watching dvds, we really notice when a camera (filming the movie) is out of focus even slightly. Sometimes this seems to occur when a "leading" actor or actress is onscreen, and I guess an effort is made to smooth those wrinkles a bit with a softer camera. Some of the time, it appears just to be the camera doing the shooting is just slightly out of focus. Older movies seem to be more apt to do this than newer ones but it is still there. We also notice the depth of field changing when characters in the movie are in the same frame but at different distances. I am sure this is purposeful since they want the attention on the speaking actor. All in all, HD seems to put more pressure on a director to make sure his camera men are doing their job and know how to get their equipment up to snuff. Video engineering seems a lot more important now than ever. Funny, but we never noticed this stuff on our old 55" regular rptv. It was there, just never noticed it.
