Oh no not full manual, just P mode and S mode.
Shutter set to 160 and 320; up to 18x zoom. Sometime flash added, when shooting into the shadows (men and roses portrait). So nothing special really as I would see it.
edit: sometimes EV -1/3

Here is a matching video from the same day.
Edited with Powerdirector 8 and clouds sped up to max ( I think 10 times); hummingbird slowed down to max ( I think .20). Saved as mpeg2 file.

The cloud picture at the end are done from a moving car.

@mamuco

That video is just grand. Your efforts are very impressive (considering you just got the cam a few days back)...

Hello,

Those pics of the Hummingbird are beautiful.... I believe they are called Anna's. Do you live in the U.S?

Thanks for the info RosaC. Yes I am in Southern California.

Here is another video - I tried to use manual focus, but its not easy to adjust with the joystick. Any hints on better usage are welcome.

I use Power Director 8. Export either as mpeg2 or wmv in 1280x720. Unfortunatelly the program doesnt export in that size as mp4.

I find PD very easy to work with.

I use Format Factory to convert from mpeg2 to mp4 files and see if the size is smaller compared to wmv files if I want to upload the file.

Used the mpeg2 files from my last vacation and imported them into Powerdirector again to combine and burn a DVD with menu and all.
Quality of the DVD played from an xbox on a 52inch plasma was very good.
