Default Fz40 Video Testing

I figured I can't shoot if I am stressed :P

So I started messing with the video modes instead. Please View

The point of shooting for the zoom is my roof. Mountains in view are the Margalla Hills.

For the manual focus, it is the my room.

The zoom in the video is really great! I'm going to have to try shooting some video; I've been half afraid to try!

Thanks for posting the links; beautiful mountains!

do another experiment..put the cam in macro mode...and switch to manual focus..set the focus to least value..its 0.04 cm i think..then start recording the video and start to zoom..only a tiny area will be in focus with very low DOF..i use that technique for taking macro shots...
