Hi from Louisiana

Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking here for a few months, and figured it would be good to introduce myself. My wife and I have a photography & video business on the Northshore of Lake Ponchartrain near New Orleans. She does most of the video work, and I help her with it when I'm not doing the photography. We mostly do weddings, and a few other events like Mardi Gras parties, etc.

I'm lurking here mostly to gather info for the inevitable transition to HD. We've been using Sony VX-2100 cams for the last few years, but just picked up a new Panasonic HMC-40 just to get our feet wet. It's a fun little camera, and we are still learning how to use it. My life loves the look of Panasonics, she has an AVG-60, but the Sony's are better in low light. So far, the HMC-40 looks good, except in really low light. We may have to get some HMC-150's to actually replace the Sonys, from what I'm seeing. We love the idea of switching away from tapes. Being a photographer, I'm really used to dealing with memory cards.

For editing, we've been using Vegas 7, will probably upgrade to Vegas 9 when we do go all widescreen & HD (probably just widescreen to start). Right now, we've been transcoding the HMC-40 files down to DV to work with the Sony footage. Thanks to DVinfo.net members for the info on doing that :)
