Quick Baseball Clip

Just my second day with the xha1, seems like my footage should be a bit sharper:
http://vimeo.com/988708

I exported H.264, 5000mbps, 1280x720.

I think the real problem was just quick zooming... h.264 doesn't seem like dealing with quick zooms or pans. The raw h.264 file is sharper and smoother, so I think the artifacts can be chalked up to vimeo's flash compression.

Just looking at the trees in the background alone seem to tell me you may not have had ND2 kicked in found your exposure sweet spot (f5.6 to fully open) to get rid of any possible diffraction.
