Ha! I found a couple more of my musical videos with the Zi8 on YouTube -
they're not credited - but I did take them on my Zi8

These are those big band with female singer videos I had mentioned elsewhere:

All that Jazz Jessie Davis and the Drive By Big Band

How High the Moon Jessie Davis and the Drive By Big Band

Please enjoy!

EDIT to ADD -
to give some context to the lighting conditions of those videos:

ISO5000, f/3.5, 1/25; 18mm

er-hum that's ISO5000 - that's 2.7 stops compared to ISO800 the max sensitivity of the Zi8
f/3.5 - 0.7 stops difference to Zi8 max aperture of f/2.8 -
then 1/25 sec - which is slower than even 30fps......
so we are talking about -2.3 stops darker than what is theoretically comfortable the Zi8 - ISO800, f/2.8 and 30fps (has to be slightly faster than 1/30 sec) -
so it is not surprising that the videos are a little on the dark side -
but amazing now that I actually know the lighting levels........
