Re: [AV Media Matters] let's talk about DV.

This is quite true. DV is defintely a digital format as far as that
goes (you either get a picture -- or you don't!). DVCAM and DVCPRO seem
slightly better in that any damaged portion is run past either 50% faster
(DVCAM) or 80% faster (DVCPRO) so that the total time spent in
crinkle-land is lower.

Mind you, I haven't yet tried pressing, mashing, or ironing the crinkled
portion flat... :-)
