At last no rain!

I was finally able to test my new cam.

First test on Saturday was a disaster, the material looked like DV.
I didnīt understand a thing.
I knew that I had the highest settings and I had a stepup ring 37-52mm so that I could use my ND8X, I had been using it with my Pana GS400, and it was during daytime.

I used Imovie 08 to download the material as full HD, yet it looked like crap.

I was sitting there like an idiot looking at the cam, not understanding a thing.

Then something came to my mind. Could it possibly be that the ND filter I had used with my Pana 400, it was a Hoya HMC, was not any good when using a HD camera?
It was to late to test the cam without the ND filter becuse it had started to rain again!!!

Today: I did a new test today without the filter and I could say a lot about the quality of my clips, but i think one word is best.

AMAZING, let me say that again, AMAZING!!!

I canīt believe that this little cam can produce such wonderful picture.

I am so happy

Hans, glad to see you had success after some scary moments! The quality that you can get out of this thing with a minimal amount of fuss is indeed amazing. My shots at the Baloon Festival yesterday were just amazing from a color perspective, amazingly true to life...unquestionably one of the strong points of the Sony.

I just want to say Thank You very much for the input I got from everybody.

I did some more filming today and this cam is really a black little jewel

Cheers
