Great shots. This really is turning into a gem of a little camera! Basically the first HD camera under $100 (not counting sales specials for the Aipteks etc) and yet it gives the more expensive cameras a run for their money in my opinion for general family use.

Hey, fishycomics! Just viewed your 'Crystal Caves' video the other day and was really impressed. Somewhat by your video, but especially with Vimeo. I'd never run across them before, and I gave up on youtube and google a long time ago. Thanks for the introduction. Check out my contribution at http://www.vimeo.com/1183857.

This was shot on a Sony HDRFX7, in widescreen but not HD, and edited (down from 2H20m to under 10m) with Pinnacle Studio 10.7.

But, back to the HDV178... I can't edit the video with Pinnacle or with WMM (same problem as some of you others: clip 1 is OK, balance have no picture and sound only). What are some of you using to edit clips from the HDV178?

Any and allfeedback is appreciated!

Well there is always the Arcsoft mediaimpression the camera comes with. Not a very powerful program but does at least allow basic editing.

DeDutchman, Contrary to an earlier post of mine I've not found a video editing program that I can use to trim the H.264 video with. I have found a work around method but it requires you have a lot of hard drive space, and it takes a lot of time to re-encode the video to HD XviD. You will need to have ffdshow installed, and then use the program VirtualDub to save the video using the FFV1 uncompressed codec (no quality loss). I'm also using the Audio Conversion in VirtualDub to convert the audio to PCM stereo, although it is only really dual channel mono. I then import that uncompressed video/audio into a free program called Avidemux and trim the video/audio there, and save the video as an XviD video file using a bitrate of 4250Kb/s, and use the configuration setting "Two Pass – Average Bitrate". Although the video is now re-compressed it retains the HD quality and allows for further editing in another video editing program if desired. Using this method I've been able to combine several trimmed video clips together and make home movies that have special effects like sound and video fade ins and outs, and even do video overlay using VideoStudio. This is all very time consuming, but it gives you a very good looking resulting final home movie.

My wife and I went fishing all night with a friend on an Illuminated Fishing Pier. I took the Jazz HDV178 with me andshot a couple of videos around 1 am in the morning to give an idea of its low light ability in this situation.

Just in case you don't see the embedded videos, you can also access them via these links:
