    Very good. I was a bit worried when you stated that it was shot without a tripod. My fear was I was going to watch some very shaky video, but you did a good job of holding the camera steady.

    I purchased the BeachTec DXA-4S and I'm happy with the results. This is a passive unit that does not require power and does not amplify the signal. The main advantage is that there's no extra...

    It says the video is one year old. Are you going to post a second copy of the footage after you ran it through this tool?

    It's odd that WFM has to use up a user button, but that's the way it is. At least they offered the feature and it's one that I use a lot.

    There isn't a lot of action in the HMC-40 group here,...

    Felipe,

    Just so you know, I don't really produce any video for professional jobs. I'm in it for fun. So the quality level of the HMC-40's CODEC is good enough for what I do. However, for...

    Given the cost I don't expect it to do everything perfect and there has to be limits. Still interesting, but I really have no need for that kind of product.

    As I was watching the video, I was expecting the cost to be around $1,500, but I was wrong, in the video he said, "The cost is less than $300". :thumbsup:

    The file format is FAT32 and FAT32 has a 4GB limit on the file size. The camera does break the recording into files that are as large as possible and if the ends are put together correctly there's...

    Ignoring chip size for the moment, 2 things impact DOF (Depth Of Field): (1) The iris or F-Stop of the lens. (2) The size or mm of the lens.

    (1) The smaller the number or F-Stop, the less the...

    I consider the Nikon 1 CX sensor the absolute "ideal" minimum size for a camera sensor. Yes, cameras can be built with smaller sensors, but the lenses aren't sharp enough to resolve the high...

    Panasonic does offset the (Red & Blue) image sensors with the Green Image sensor. Panasonic says that would give an equivalent of 1920x2 by 1080x2 = 3840 x 2160 resolution or 8.3MP. I consider it...

    When I say the still camera shots from the HMC40 sucks, they have taken what is really 2MP and tried to up-res it to 10MP. That makes the image noise go off the charts and the image is fuzzy. My...

    My own personal thinking is that it may not make much difference either way. The camera starts with a 1920x1080 image. If you record it as 1920x1080, then scale it down it becomes 1280x720. If...

    I've never tried it, but logically because it's made by Panasonic, it should have the same "Panasonic Look" we find in other Panasonic cameras.

    I'm using a MAC with Final Cut Express, so I convert the video to AIC (Apple Intermediate CODEC). I found that it works well in my editing.

    Crystal timing is very accurate, in general it's 6 place accuracy or better (that's 1/100,000 error). Two recordings for 60 minutes = 3600 seconds. Assuming the first is bang on, the second could...

    The HMC-40 isn't really a good low light camera. It can be pushed to photograph in low light, but if the gain goes past +12dB, the noise is excessive. Here are 3 low light tests I did a while...
