I can tell you this, owningthe MPVr , I am super hppy, Priceless moments forsure, as it gets older i get more tempted to look for a better smaller model, like the casio exislim models, but no matter what we own we'll still knit pick

Moire effect has been around for ages, was wathingablack andwhite and it was there to.

fixed over focused i go with a fixed. no adjusting every second.

I have tried cameras like the kodack z612 auto focus, to my olympus auto focus, my olympus was alot better but lacked the quality of resolution and limited to time.

Well there's nitpicking and there's basic standards of operation. I am going to keep this camera but I certainly want to get the best performance I can out of it because quite honestly the results I am getting now are barely acceptable. But they are getting better as I learn the limitations of the unit.

BTW I just read back earlier, and to clarify, the MZ-DV has 3 resolution settings, QVGA (320x240), VGA (680x480) and D1 (720x480).

mzdvguy,

Out of curosity, does the MZ-DV have a wide screen mode, like the Zoom DV, or did this feature get dropped with the addition of D1 resolution?

It does indeed have widescreen (16:9) mode; I rather enjoy it from time to time

If you mute the sound, the first video clip especially, reminds me of when I played around with super 8 cine film

I don't know if I'm seeing things, but it seems to be not as detailed, smooth (frame-to-frame motion) and focused as the MPVR shots I've seen. What do you think?

I sure wish I had the 720x480 resolution, optical zoom, 4GB SD capability etc... I am jealous. I thought macro mode (CLIP0110) looked good and focused.

Yes, the macro mode has been pretty good, and it's part of the reason why I continue to be disappointed by the wide-angle scenics.

When you activate the Macro mode, it zooms the lens in a bit or somehow moves the optics a bit.
