Oh-oh - lots of colour correction needed Stellios - peoples' faces switch from brown to blue. And I see your tripod in the background and the wobbles on the film... and auto exposure plays havoc very early on. The dreaded CMOS electronic flash as well.

Still - nice that you've cut it to the music and there are good closeups.

You can't stop the flashing - that's the point. I've just had 64 electronic flashes go off in a 15 second cake-cutting and I'm very glad I shot it on a CCD camera. CMOS (especially slowed down) would have looked awful. Here's a snippet.

How do you find the shutter roll on this camera? My understanding is that it's pretty severe on the Z5 and FX1000 (same sensor in both)

The whole video is 45 minutes long, but that's what the customer wants, most of the church ceremony (about 30 minutes) and the rest at the reception.

Yes you are right Tom about the colour correction and the auto exposure, but that's what I said at the beginning, that I left everything on auto deliberately for all to see what the Z5 can do in situations like that. I will correct though later at re-upload. Now the reason that I didn't use the tripod a lot is the nature of Greek christenings that the "action" moves from place to place and you have to be everywhere. I did use though the spiderbrace a lot. Well about the CMOS flash, it doesn't bother me at all. Thanks for your comments.

Here is the new link with the colour corrections. How does it look now Tom?
