Joyce, thank you I have found the link to Paolo cam settings, I want to try'em on sunday in church (we create DVD's of almost each service) and the lighting is kinda ok. So we'll see.
By the way, I also want to start production company soon and I amd buying my third camera HD100 at the end of this month.

does anybody think buying th br-hd50 is a good idea, 'cause I can get a package price from B&H?

I'd also highly recommend getting and using a CamAlign Front Box HD Standard (www.dsclabs.com)
Thank to you and all the others for mentioning my configuration. Your advice about getting a DSC chart is dead on the money. It is hard to describe before trying it but a professional chart will really improve the quality of your images. While it might be a little overwhelming at the beginning, you will find uses for it all the time and you will get more and more familiar. It's no different from other tools, including the HD100. At first it's intimidating, you then learn how to control it and then how to use it. A camera like the HD100 definitely benefits from this kind of treatment.

Thanks Paolo. As for the BR-50, I looked at that and the JVC CU-VH1 and opted for the VH-1. It saved me more than $1000 and does the same thing the BR-50 does. As far as I can tell, the difference is in the carriage system and heads. I thought there would be others but JVC couldn't come up with any and the VH-1 has an LCD and is battery powered.
