Hi from Trinidad

Hi...been perusing the board for a couple weeks and was waiting until I had a question to post but couldn't contain it any longer. I'm so glad to have found this forum and have already learned alot from reading through the posts! Learned about the Glidecam from here (it arrived today), Mercalli stabilizing software, seen some amazing videos and websites, and more. I'll mostly be hanging out at the Under Water Over Land section since I'm begining on the road to become a nature videographer. Wish I had some more knowledge so that I could make a contribution to others' questions, but for now I've got a lot to learn and this seems to be the right place. :)

I was hoping to put up a question about the best way to record nature scenes - meaning, whether to let the auto focus do the work or to manually fix the settings. (My registration didn't get approved in time for me to ask before a pre-arranged tour, but I did some reading in the meantime.) I used the auto focus mainly and some manual (rack) focus. Am using the Panasonic AG-DVC30 for the first time and viewing back the footage the scenes look really nice (wetlands area) although in some instances there are some overexposed backgrounds such as a very white sky which was overcast for the entire day although the foreground looks great. Thanks for the welcome. :)

No. I do photography when I travel since it is easier to edit and it allows me to be unobtrusive.
