I imagine loads of programmes go out these days with what would have been a 2 then, standards seem to have dropped so much.
People say that, but then look at most BBC One/ITV non-news factual and drama output - and the picture quality has seldom ever been better.
Drama shot on Alexa, factual shot on Amira and F55s, C300s or similar usually looks cracking. Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II in HDR UHD are stunning.
Sport shot on HDC2500/HDC54300s similarly.
Strictly, The Voice, X Factor studio pictures look vastly better than pretty much any studio shot on SD cameras, let alone SD tubed cameras.
Yes - there is video that News outlets use now that is poorer quality, but in days gone by the equivalent to that would often have just been still pictures and 3.5kHz phone line audio... Skype has really just replaced phonos, mobile phone video has replaced, well in many cases, nothing (previously we just wouldn't have had this content at all), and if people are going to tell me an Ikegami 79D is better than the camera in an iPhone XS for shooting a PTC...
