Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

Which three - UX90, UX180, and HC-X1? Or UX90, UX180, and DVX200?

Actually, I guess it doesn't matter, as the answer is all the same -- they're all about the same except for the UX90, which is one f-stop less sensitive than the others, and doesn't offer the HIGH SENS option.

Isn't the higher sensitivity setting just a software enhancement (additional gain with higher noise reduction)? Why isn't the ux180/x1 a stop faster in normal mode?

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

They are. The UX90 has a base ISO of about 250, the UX180/HC-X1 have a base ISO of about 500. Then you also have the HIGH SENS option, which pushes the UX180/HC-X1 effective ISO to about 1000.

Thanks Barry, very helpful book. But I have one question - after download I tried to check pictures from scene files setings (I'm talking about videos for demonstration) and after clicking inside of mentioned video I still have white frame, nothing shows up, could you be so kind and check it?
I read your previous book - guide to DVX200 (I own one) and all videos for demonstration are working great.

Regards

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

I would say to check which program you're using to view the PDF in. I found that when on an Apple Mac, the "Preview" app would display the pages but wouldn't play the videos; when using Adobe's Reader app, the videos played fine.

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

I'm using Windows 7 and latest version of Acrobat Reader DC. I have both your guides: DVX200 and UX90/180.
In guide for DVX200 videos are playing perfect, but in guideUX90/180 still no luck - just a empty white frame.
I checked it in three comps - desktop (Win7) notebook Sony Vaio (Win7) and netbook SONY Vaio (Win10) - no luck.

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

I'm not sure what to tell you... it was created in the exact same program as the DVX200 Book was, the videos are incorporated in the same way, and I tested it on both Mac and Windows before sending it in... Perhaps try re-downloading it in case something was corrupted during the download?

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

I compared size of downloaded content of both guides. Both have almost the same number of pages: DVX200 Guide - 279 pages, UX90/180 Guide 269 pages and number of included videos is almost the same.
But DVX200 Guide has 20,0 MB and UX90/180 Guide only 11,6 MB (lack of embeded videos?)

Maybe somebody from win7 users can check if videos from UX90/180 Guide ale playing correct?

Excellent initiative, Barry. Unfortunately I'm having the same experience here on WIN10 Pro - the DVX200 guide behaves as expected, the UX90/180 just blank, and not linking. FWIW the guide was DLed on 03.06.2017.

Well, that's certainly odd, because the book as I sent it to them is 75 megabytes. I don't know how it became 11.6 megabytes unless they somehow recompressed it, and perhaps in that process the videos became disabled? I don't know, but I will raise the question with them to see if they can fix it.

Re: Panasonic UX90 & UX180 Q&A

Okay folks, I believe the issue is resolved. When they recompressed the book, some features I had installed (like the videos and hotlinks) didn't survive that process.

They have re-posted it in a much better form that, while being much larger, it better represents the book as I wrote it. I encourage all who have downloaded the old version, to download the new version as a replacement. The download is much larger, but I believe you'll be better served by the higher-res pictures, the active linking between articles and the table of contents, and by the videos.

Downloaded the new version (62.3MB).
I can see the pictures, but no video links.
Using Firefox to view the PDF.
