hi Clark.  can you tell me in comparison to what is HD
production 3% cheaper- 35mm film?   (and forgive me for not
being among those who can listen to streaming audio due to
my simple, slow but reliable and free modem connection)

hey, as long as it's digital, it's modern and wonderful,

hear some dynamic range in the analog audio.
