Chris, any luck in getting those .mts files uploaded. I'm particularly curious about Austin's shot of the skyline and construction equipment.

Thanks.

Actually I think it's a good exercise and I'll try to do this test tonight. I'm not gonna upload those clips but I'll be able to tell you if the files are split or not. Somebody will want to use these little camcorders as unattended B-roll or C-roll, behind the altar at a wedding or wherever. It's worth finding out in my opinion.

Okay I'm working on uploading that clip right now, but it's over 100MB and kinda slow going (I live in the country with wireless connectivity that barely qualifies as broadband).

Off topic: Ken, we live off the beaten path at the end of a quiet road, where no one can drive past the house. We have great neighbors. We have horses, cats, dogs, a hammock, a tractor, and a host of deer, hawks, owls and other enjoyable critters in the wildlife out here. Plus an affordable mortgage and only a 45 minute drive to a major airport. In short, I'm dug in!

And you think that's all worth slow internet speeds? :) :) :)

Sure I think it is... when I'm outdoors away from the computer! ;-)

Okay, so I've successfully uploaded that file only to find that whatever I did to it (which was to move it from the HF10 to the computer using the Pixela software included with the camcorder) has changed the file from .MTS to .M2TS.

So, while I'm now uploading the .MTS which I grabbed directly off the SDHC card, I guess i need to know if .M2TS will work for everybody. I thought I could just re-name the extension but after some heavy traveling this week, my brain has turned to mush and I can't remember if that will work or not.

Aw sheesh, never mind. mts and m2ts are the same thing. I'll put on glasses before posting again.

Interesting that the name is Pixela instead of Guide Menu, Hmmmm? Chris, if you haven't already done so, please record a 17 min clip using highest quality and tell us what happens...

Thanks Chris. Yeah, I don't think there's any difference between the MTS and M2TS files. It should work. I'll look for it.

I had a chance to check out the Panny SD9 today at Best Buy. I was able to manually set the shutter speed and aperture independent of one another and the settings would stay locked. Is this possible to do on the HF10?

Not sure about the HF10, but just to let you know the low light on the SD9 is absolutely abysmal.

I'll try to set up the 17 minute extended recording test tonight or first thing in the morning.
