more?

GREAT job.

Any plans to do some human faces - interior shots with varying amounts of light?

thanks for all the hard work.

Since there are already people asking for you to do some more examples, I feel a little sad that I have to ask you a favor as well but here it goes: Do you think you will ever get the change to do a comparison between the V1u and the XH-G1/A1, and thatís if you are able to get a hold of both at the same time. If you do, then I hope you are able to survive a thread like that because it may turn into World War 3 knowing that a lot of people including myself have a strong favoritism toward either camcorder.

Itís amazing that you put so much effort into these comparisons.

Thank you for the comprehensive DOF tests. The berries look good enough to eat. But that would be a bad idea!

Wolfgang how does the Sony's video hold up with lots of motion? Has the FX7's encoder been upgraded from the FX1's? Do you have any clips of full frame motion of the camera?

Many thanks for your peerless comparison work.

Are you saying the FX7 has an excellent encoder? How does it compare with the FX1? I'm not asking you to post more clips.

You don't see any issues at all with lots of motion?

I think you'll find all camcorders have an issue with motion such as fast pans. The encoders just can't keep up with this amount of information. It's no different watching broadcast HDTV. Fast motion will always result in a certain amount of blurring.

Looking at Images 27 & 38, and thinking of other shots with strong vertical/horizontal edges (e.g. bridge shots), the FX1 shows heavy-handed edge enhancement ('sharpness') whereas the FX7 seems a lot more delicate.

Does anyone know what the default Sharpness setting is for the FX7? IIRC, the FX1/Z1 was about 12-13 on a 1-15 scale - though 8 may be considered neutral (but soft) and 1 unusable. Is the FX7 set at about 9 - 10 on sharpness by default?

Or is the 20x a better lens?
