Interested in comparing hybrid video input quality? I found a site where you can download a DVD image that is used for benchmarking the quality of a TV and DVD player. I also found this to be a great tool to test the video input on my hybrids. I'm on a mission to find the hybrid with the best video input.

(280 meg FREE download in the Downloads page)

Its easy.
-Burn the ISO to a DVD
-Output your DVD player to the Hybrid
-Play the DVD and Record to the Hybrid

I can watch them, but I'm having trouble downloading the original.

What would really be best for these comparisons is to take still-shots of various frames and then take the same shots on the other cameras. Then just stick them on a webpage somewhere (or even flickr or photobucket) so we can easily compare. The way it is now, By the time you get done watching one, and go to the next you can't really remember how it looked before.

When I get some time in the next few days, I'll take some still shots with a real video capture card so you'll have something to compare with.

Sorry Fishy, I thought I had seen a quick review of yours on the "roadster" model. I must have it mixed up with someone else. nevermind........



DynaMight, burn a copy of the Blink DVD and record a test video if you can. Post it up on Vimeo.com or similar. Thanks!
