    I still have friends who argue with me that using Nikon D3 with 14 bits RAW is NO better than shooting D40 with 8 bits JPEG :-). It is waste of time talking to those folks.

    If EDIUS supports 10 bits, I will jump in head first. Can use HD-SDI capture instead of P2 cards. But, I guess I got to wait for version 10 before I see one.

      Flash XDR is only 8-bit. The XDR uses a sony long form GOP to compress data stream to 50-100mbps. ALL mpeg2 is 8-bit. Convergent Design promises 10-bit uncompressed, at some point in the future, but, just not right now.

        Is 10 always best?
