from the (venerable) HV20 to the HFS100-first project

Just completed my first project with the HFS100 and posted it to YouTube.

I dig this camera!

-100% view option on the LCD
-1.7x zoom--seriously, it works well.
-light weight and quiet
-better menu design and access (on the LCD panel)
-video gain limiter...have not really tried it yet in low light, but very glad to have it.
-peaking
-face detection...not tried yet, but sounds great for events.
-zoom rocker takes some getting used to, but I like it
-58mm threads allow common filters and large adapters.

I have both the Raynox 6600 and 2020 adapters. Both have their issues, but are a great value for the money.

The piece linked has a couple shots at full wide with the 6600, and plenty at around 30x (10x optical | 1.7x | 2.2x Raynox). It's impressive performance for wildlife work.
