    I was messing around at the weekend with some proDV tapes and decided to
    convert them to anamorphic format in Premiere 6 and do a test - the
    results seem to work quite well. I increased the height by 33% (set as
    133) and applied a 10% sharpening filter. The originals were shot on
    either a Panasonic EZ1 or a JVC GY-DV500 PAL format 3 chip cameras. The
    output looked great on both my monitor and on a domestic widescreen TV.
    The results were comparable to using my anamorphic lens with the advantage
    of being able to use the full zoom range - you would need to frame your
    shooting allowing for the reduction in height in the viewfinder - the
    GY-DV500 has a viewfinder indicator to allow you to do this.
    Give it a try and let us know your results.
