Hey,

ive seen many video samples of this camcorder on youtube. The videos look great, but when i record a video it doesnt look as good. how come this is? are the videos edited after and made clearer?

what are the recommeded settings for this camcorder? more exposure? less? sharpness?

My camera might be defected, so i just wanna know if its my settings or if i need to exchange it..



thanks

after viewing more videos in the same lighting condition, I have realized the lighting is the cause of grainy video i keep getting, I will wait until the weekend when the sun comes out and see how the quailty of the video looks like then and will post it here..



but after viewing the video... what do you think of it? bad? ok? ... worse then others?

thank you

no panning makes a video easier to view no need to reload.

your video qaulity if fine. matchs what the Jazz is supposed to be like.

I render all my video to wmvHD 1280x720 for a more compressed or file size allowing easer DL

As fishycomics says, the video looks fine to me so I am not sure what you may be expecting.

The thing to note though is that all that snow may confuse the camera into using a lower exposure than normal which will make it look a bit dull.

that was why I said no panning a still video

As RGVCAM mentions I agree with him

You seem to be confusing Focus with Zoom. The insignia is fixed focus and it has no optical zoom, only digital.

your Comment hard to understand, possably a clearer explaination is needed with a video sample thank you/

The Hybrid is of a low budget and offers the best quality for its class, If you keep to a lower zoom (distance) your shots will look pritty good, never saying its best.

Optimum proformance is made possable by finding the Peak of the cam. and that ranges around 3x digital zoom.
