Stills would be great, one from camera, camera slow-mo, and FCP slowmo at the same places. I will try to get it working on my iBook later as I think I should have the best chance on a mac!

OK, same folder as before. Look for files HDR HC3 Regular.png and HDR HC3 Slow Motion.png. I didn't copy a single frame from the FinalCutPro slowed-down clip.

Hope this works better. At the very least, you should get a good idea of the magnitude of the difference.

It does not work for Quicktime on my powerbook either, and the reason is that I miss the mpeg-2 playback component for quicktime (costs extra). Maybe that is also the reason for the others.

OTOH, I can see the clip using vlc.

...and I thank you very much for the clip. I was very interested by this slow-motion capability, and considered adding the HC3 to my HC1. Now, I know I don't need to buy the HC3... IMO, the slow-motion footage is not usable. I don't know how they did it, but this slow-motion footage has reduced resolution and severe compression artifacts. And indeed your test was right: the slow-motion from final cut is much better.

(I am not saying that the HC3 is a bad camera, BTW; just that this feature is not much use.)
