gs400 vs dv953 in lowlight

Hi!

How does the gs400 compare to dv953 in lowlight?
Are the ugly lowlight noise gone in gs400? And have anyone tried to make own titles with gs400? -is it possible to use jpg´s as titles like the xm2?

Thanx
Lisa

Lisa, here are some night video frame grabs for you to see the GS400 noise. (2.2MB)
And here is a photo with 1/4s exposure time (+15dB) which I just lossless rotated 90 degrees.
Here is a small WMV night video file 1Mbit (1MB).

Sorry, the DV953 part has to do someone else! ;)

Yes, I personally also think the GS400's low light performance is not that bad, although I can only compare it to my cheap old DS27 one chipper.

Btw. I feel especially night shots look not good on the GS400's LCD display, photos and video. But later on a computer screen or TV it looks much better.

Oh, and about the JPEG-titles... seems the GS400 can not use JPEG pictures as titles. At least I didn't figure out how to do so. You can only take some really simple one color titles.
