Just a follow-up on the story of child-birth, my son, David, was born at 00:20 Singapore time on 24 March 2004. I had the overall room shot in video (MX350 on tripod) and had my Fuji S602 shooting stills.

Mother and son are fine, natural birth, and without anaesthesia. We are home now.

But sure enough, the low light performance of my MX350 is not as good as my ex-MX8, but the colour saturation is certainly much better.

Papa! Congrats! Your 1st?

I told you not to sell your MX8, and so did, "BB," as I recall.

Just to say on topic, which one's better: the MX350 or the MX8? And what miniDV tape did you use?

Nope, my second, the MX8 was used to shoot my daughter's birth 2 years ago.

As for tape, I have been using Sony 60 minutes basic tapes for very long.

No regrets of on the sale of my MX8, I was selling low light performance for vibrant colours and "professional" settings like dedicated WB button, audio input levels, zebra andimage sharpness levels.

Good luck with your growing family. You probably told me about your 1st, but I couldn't remember. Sorry. Tommy should have a new-born coming any day now. I'm just stuck with a cat (and a wife).

If I had to decide between a 1-chip and a 3-chip, I'd probably go with the 3-chip also. The improved colors really make a big difference, even though I'm a bit color blind. :))

About the Sony tape, it seems it works just fine in my friend's older 3-chip Pana, pre-MX3. He did have problems at one point, but after I explained to him that "mixing" was a nono, his broken-up video problems went away.

I almost bought a PB-DV852, by the way, when B&H had that deal. Then 1 day away from putting in the order, I found out that they were all sold out. The early worm gets the worm, or so the saying goes. I should have scrapped up the scratch a bit sooner.

Hi all,

I'd forgotten about this thread until I got a notification that someone had posted to it again. :)

Congratulations Yow - my son was born 3/23, 4:01pm EST. I only taped some "after birth" stuff with my DV852, mom wasn't too enthused about recording anything before that. :) Stills were taken with a Panasonic FZ10 (maybe I should buy stock in Matsushita!).

Well, he's crying now and mom's in teh shower, so off I go.
