For setting shutter & aperture, look at pages 71 & 72

Yes, I wish I had waited for this model for the native 24p in particular. Good overview! Just one question - what is the cute little matte box you have attached, and would that work with the WD-H58 converter? I posted earlier on this, but no one has picked up on it yet.

Thanks,
Terence

HF-S21 Questions and First Impressions

Hi Terence:
Like you said in your post..... It is time for Art & Crafts. I also have been looking for a solution for the wide angle and the lens shade. so I adapted an old Hasselblad bellows lens shade that was used with their lenses, this thing is probably 15-20 years old. but is in perfect condition, You can adjust the bellows so that there is no vignetting or cut off of light reaching the the coverage of the lens.

Thanks
Luis

Thanks for the reply, Luis. I should check out some second hand camera shops in case I can adapt something similar.

Cheers,
Terence

Don't know if it's too late, but...

Just picked up an S200. You can indeed change aperture, speed, exposure while recording. You can assign any ONE of them to the custom dial, or change from the touchscreen.

HF-S21 Questions and First Impressions

Hi Tom:

No you are not too late. I finally experienced the two modes to change the aperture and shutter speed while shooting and you are right they both work. I don't usually used it but I can see that it could be a plus sometimes with planned shots.
I think that Ove, a few posts back wanted to know if it could be done.
Thanks
Luis
