An interesting article in the New York Times:
You've got to love the correction they appended too. Lord knows you wouldn't want to spell Robby D's 'name' wrong.

Ms. Daniels is also a skeptic. “I’m not 100 percent sure why anyone would want to see their porn in HD,” she said.
I'm with Ms. Daniels here. I've seen HD porn and there's just something off about it. I do believe it would probably only benefit certain directors output. Like that bullshit Celeste directs for Digital Playground. The ISLAND FEVER series as well perhaps. Michael Ninn would probably prosper. Any director who attempts to film in an arty way, I guess. A lot of them use soft focus otherworldly camera techniques that wouldn't really be damaged by HD as much as a Jules Jordan gonzo flick for example.

It'll go over well. Some folks (Stars and viewers) who worry about how many "flaws" it will bring out, shouldn't be too bothered. Not EVERYTHING will be in HD. There will still be standard DVD stuff for quite a while.
I remember VHS tapes that would proclaim on the box, "RECORDED WITH BETACAM!"
Folks look for picture quality in their porn. Not all, but a sizeable chunk.
I used to work at a place that rented XXX tapes. All types of people are into all types of stuff. Some folks liked compilations and could care less that it was in EP speed, some folks only wanted "fresh" films that were new to the store. Others wanted the "unusual" stuff. Some wanted "name brand" stuff, which generally meant they wanted to see nice picture quality., etc, etc. Fun times.
Many times I said, "Rentals are $2.00 each, or 3 for $5.00"

Quite a few of them are bordering on to ugly already, and I bed HD will make it impossible for make up to conceal all their "faults"

If Seduction Cinema released HD Misty Mundae films, I can't see many people who would turn it down in favour of SD.
