First day out with XHA1

Going to a small town event tomorrow. Called "Hazel Day." This is the
first video camera I have ever used. So I have a lot of questions. But
for now, what would be the best frame rate setting? Being new to
video I will shoot automatic. Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you have a lot of movement, you might want to go to 60i.
If not, 30F might be a good option. If you want that (slightly) stuttery film feel, 24F is your friend...

It's now a couple days after.

How did it go, Charles? Success? Share your thoughts on the camera if you like.

Well pleased with first outing/XH A1

I shot in automatic mode 60I and was amazed at the
picture quality. My wife thought the results looked 3D.
I ordered a tutorial DVD from Vasst and got it yesterday.
Hopefully the DVD training will help me with all the
functions of the camera. Thanks for asking about my
first outing.
