Default HS10 1080p video samples

So far I have yet to see 1080p video with the quality that I have seen from HS10 photos. Here is a sample that was posted on youtube and discussed on DPR Fuji forum.

I have seen better from a Sanyo hd2000. This doesn't mean it's bad. It serves as a good secondary. You can hear the mechanical parts of the camera in the background for one. Zoom isn't perfect.

Disabling the auto features would make this video better.

Without a power zoom and OIS 1080p video is a showstopper. I just received my Panasonic HDC-TM700 and tested the 18x zoom and external Rode Stereo VideoMic .

Here is a video testing the same combo under near silent conditions after muting the sound on my TV :

Looking at the HS10 videos I would say: he should drill/drill/drill/exercise/practise (some years?) ... then he becomes a little Spielberg :-)

jogiba, of course it's unfair to compare with a TM700

Default HS10 slow motion video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_KOMlGba4g

I play my TM700 1080p60 mode home videos in slow motion on my PS3 and the kids love them since the audio is slowed also.

I could see now why Fuji never made a big deal over video mode in the HS10. BTW the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS that came out in 2008 has a power zoom 20x lens and 1080p mode that is much better than the HS10.

Want to shoot video, buy a video camera. The HS-10 is a STILL camera with video as a quick back-up. Why people insist on comparing still camera video to other video cameras is beyond me. It's apples and oranges. It's like trying to compare bridge camera IQ to dSLR IQ. It can't and shouldn't be done!

Get ready for a wild ride with UNCLE JACK in this nocturnal odyssey of a desperate fugitive. A mad clown, magic pills, a bedtime story and more add up for a fast-paced, riotous adventure. Cheer for a troubled character with a big heart in this short film shot in Denver, Colorado entirely at night with the PENTAX K-7 and the DA 10-17mm, DA* 16-50mm, and DA* 60-250mm lenses.

I compared the data-rate of the HS10 video shot @ 720p vs. my Canon SD780 @ 720p - The HS10 records 29.97fps, with stereo sound @ 10.66 Mbit/sec where as my Canon records 30fps, with mono sound @ 23.9 Mbit/sec.

That's the opposite of what I expected. I was hoping the HS10 data rate to be higher, especially since it uses 48KHz stereo audio vs the Canon which uses 44KHz mono.

Both use the H.264 video codec, but it seems like the HS10 video is heavily compressed; and I definitely noticed the video to be of lower quality than the Canon SD780.

I seen both canon and Fuji in action with raw video files...hs10 is far better.
