CBS’ THE AMAZING RACE
Finally Going HD In 2011!!
I am – Hercules!!
One of the last network shows to make the jump to HD and one of the network shows fans most want to see in HD, “The Amazing Race” will indeed make the switch to high-def cameras next year, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Expense and portability was said to be an issue, but aren’t there loads of 1080p camcorders that cost $110 and fit in your shirt pocket?
Find all of The Hollywood Reporter’s story on the matter here.

I call their excuses for not jumping complete bollocks. One of the highest rated programs on TV and they use the "too expensive" excuse, when they pay 360K an episode to the kid in 2 1/2 men? inexcusable!

Can climb with Bear, run with Bear and jump of waterfalls with Bear. Portability issues my ass.

As someone who has had both SD and HD professional digital cameras on his shoulder, yes, portability is definitely a consideration. And as someone who worked as a tape logger on a series of the Amazing Race Asia, those cameras get an absolute work out. But I am very glad that the next season will be in HD, because, well, it is about time.

Just because something says it is 1080p doesn't mean the quality and flexibility of the camera is anywhere near good enough for tv.

even the shitty 720p videos on YouTube look better than the 480i Amazing Race

Six years ago, the Rush HD channel on the Voom HD Network was putting HD cameras in the helmets of snowboarders and downhill BMX bike racers and the pictures were in absoultely gorgeous full 1080 HD. Those shows were broadcast quality, without question. They looked spectacular on my new plasma TV.

With the locations alone they could find new viewership just by jumping from 480i to 1080p. <br> <br> And, yeah, my understanding has always been that carrying around the full sized HD cameras was too bulky a setup at the beginning. But certainly they've been able to jump to a prosumer level now for at least 2 or 3 years with no problem. <br> <br> Whatever, sure it's long overdue, but count me in as excited.
