But what I did with the menus was basically this:

I hooked the camera up to a high def monitor and played with all of the settings until the picture looked the way I wanted it to. I suggest taking notes on settings that you like while clicking through the menus. This took about 2 hours with the camera locked off on the same set-up. In doing this, you will learn where the camera is strong and weak in its interpretation of light and color. Once you know your palette, you can make choices. What's exciting is there is still much more to explore with all the settings on this rig.

Hi Dave,

Have you found that what you see in the monitor is actually what is recorded and eventually shown on the computer o TV? If not, how close is what you see in the monitor to the final footage? Obviosuly with film what you see in the monitor is no where near what you will finally see. i am just wondering about HDV and especially the HD100U. You really encourage me with tat camera.

Too bad you're in NYC. I could have used someone like yourself on my shoot =)
