I'm a happy owner of the SANYO XACTI CA65.

I hesitate long time with CG65 and Casio Ex-V7,
I wanted the new codec compression H.264. too.

I have done a specific comparaison page with many HYBRID APN
and a lot of VIDEO SAMPLE
It can help a lot for choosing.

Just for fun I uploaded a 3m video of fireworks using the GC65 from the 4th. It does show some of the weak points of the H264 at 3mps but still fun.

I had to use fireworks mode, the download is 60meg it should be a fast down load.

Thanks for the fireworks vid! so this is raw footage?
i wonder if it's really a codec issue though, cos in the last part when you zoomed in the 'flashing blocks of pixels' went away.

Been looking into buying a hybrid for some time: my main goal is to take videos of fireworks on newyears eve. been eyeing the C6 for some time, and the C65 looks appealing too.

caelum or anyone else got experience with fireworks videos?

Hi reprazent, yes I've shot some as well, both with the C6 and CG65,here is some raw footage of fireworkstaken this summer with my CG65 in "Fireworks" mode:

ArizonaVideo, I saw those digital glitches in your video, not sure why it didn't happenin mine? It lookedlike it happened mostly transitioning from anear black frame to a fireworks burst, perhapsit's because I didn't have black frames? Has that happenedwhen shooting anything else?

awesome footage, I'm sold - I'm getting a CG65
so I guess I can assume that was the climax of the show? looks like things went off too fast though haha.

Yeah, that was the last minute ofahalf hourshow. :G

Edit: BTW, if you're curious to compare, this is (also the last minute) footage from a year earlier taken with the C6: http://mihd.net/o40kla

It should be similar to what you would get with the less expensive CG6 model.

Man, that C6 fireworks footage is equally impressive Caelum. and the explosions sound lot better, more natural. were you standing closer to the fireworks using the C6?

Did you use any zooming in these vids btw?

The shooting distance should have been pretty equal, and I might have zoomed just a little to fill the screen, not much. It's interesting because the sound difference isdue tothis being shot before theC6 firmware update. This means the recording volume did not auto adjust, it wasconstant(but there was clipping). Since the C6 firmware update, and with the CG65, the recording volume level constantly auto-adjusts to prevent the sound from clipping. In this specific case, with fireworks, prehaps it's not ideal as it tends to dampen the bangs, but for the majority of other situations, it's really much better. I imagine the CG6 must also adjust the recording volume.

When I watch this and the previous fireworks video, the video keeps pausing over and over again, but the sound is continuous... why is that? I tried watching it all the way through and then watching it again, thinking that it was still loading from the web, but even the second time it was like that.
