Thanks,

No, I'm sorry. But filming a few trees at different zoom levels shouldn't be too difficult, should it?

i have both the HC1 and the FX1. The later is a terrific camera, good zoom range, excellent IS, usable in the most dimmest of the environments etc, but in normal light i find it producing more coarse and video-ish like picture than the HC1. I watch the video on 2 HDTVs, both i believe 720p or close. The picture from the HC1 is extemely clean, with almost 0 enhancement and full of fine detail.

My 2 cents.

I don't have any such footage myself. The best I can link are files that are in WMV format. One was some night time footage of Seoul, Korea that was posted here some months ago. The other was a fireworks show link that was emailed to me privately by Jerome Cloninger of jcdv.com. I think he'd be happy to send a link to a few people, but I don't want to potentially bust his server bandwidth by publicly posting a link.

If I recall correctly, what this setting does is lower the exposure speed. You can get decent nightime footage by doing the same yourself:
-disable the stabilisator
-lower the exposure to 1/25 second (for pal)
-try the backlight button

I don't think anyone has said that there aren't better cameras on the market, but you'll be spending twice as much to get the next camera model.
I did not mean to criticise the camera, but to explain what to avoid filming so that its limitations will not be too apparent.
