My first shot with the HV20

This is my first shot with the Hv20. I went to Portugal to visit my parents and I found my old guitar and decided to have some fun. I simply placed the HV20 on different locations and "shot my self". It took like 10 or 15 minutes. It actually came up pretty nice, with the exception of the sound (recorded directly with the HV20's mic). I have to say that even though I miss having the manual control my Xh-A1 has, this small little camera is pretty cool to take anywhere you want.

Thanks, guys. I really liked it too. It was a bit of a shock for me the lack of control on the Hv20 after always having worked with bigger cameras with full manual control over everything, but after a while you get the hang of it. Also the fact that you can have this level of quality with such a tiny camera just blows me away. When I started studying cinema like 8 years ago I would have dreamed about a camera like this. I shot A LOT of my projects back then with a stinking 1 ccd sony minidv that cost more than the HV20. I'm looking forward to pushing the HV20's baundaries.

I love how you handled your shots within the dynamics range of the HV20.

Thanks. I must say though that one of the main differences between the XH-A1 and the HV20 is the lack of dynamic range on the HV20...the transition between dark and light is way more subtle on the XH-A1.
