	In fact, Sony clearly says that their video cameras are a good 
low-cost alternative to film: no expensive telecine sessions, 
exchangeable optics, film look set-ups, full progressive capability 
etc..., especially for dramas and documentaries. By the way they 
promote these products I beleive they would be happy if they could 
get rid of film.
