The first set of pics looks great and deffo would be a good substitute if you dont have another still camera to hand!

So having just sold my S3, i think im gonna take the plunge on a red HD700 fairly soon!

My main use will be for skiing at the end of the year, do you think the cold will be a problem!? As some of the pics you posted ended up a bit blurred because of condensation/wetness on the lens?

In the first set with the battleship USS mass if so. they are all fine. after that the next topic post they are the bad ones in pouring rain.

My hands were cold creating heat and the wide angle on it was getting moisture from me, the cams heat, and the rain. not all were bad. I have many more but at this time they are samples

this is another cam andwell not taking the time gets you just that.

RE: DVD Flicks...
Quote:
Wow, I just downloaded it and tried a trial burn. On my core 2 duo 3GHz, it was about real time.... a 7 minute DVD took 7 minutes to render. And the interesting bit is that the total CPU utilization is about the same as when I use PE3.... about 50-60 percent with one CPU much more heavily used than the other. Interestingly, when it transitions from one input file to the next, the heavily used CPUs trade places.

Paul
I just ran a comparison between DVD Flick and PE 3 on my 1.5GHz THinkpad X41 laptop and my 3GHz Core 2 duo desktop.

Rendering 720P H.264 files to ISO with no effects and no titles:

PE3 was VERY slow, looking like about 1/9 real time on the C2duo. Didn't try it on the laptop.

DVD Flick ran at 14FPS on the laptop and 47FPS on the C2Duo.

Quite a difference!

*derxxsfilmer* - you have mail! thx!



Hello! I tried a HD1000, great picture quality, extreme accurate detail reproduction!but the cam was too big to carry all day...

Now I am interested in the small HD700, but irritated because of the poor video quality in the "vimeo" videos. Is VIMEO responsible for the "unsharp" and "burred" videoquality? Objects in the backgoudare hardly noticeable... ,shooting with the HD 1000 the backgroud wasvery detailed.

The real HD700 videos look quite better on Plasma or LCD TV at home?

for example this video has poor quality (unsharp/blurred) when watching on my high class notebookdisplay in full resolution: http://www.vimeo.com/752536



2. question please: at which focal distance starts theHD700 wideangel in video-mode? HD1000 was 49,7mm - this is to say, there was NO wideangel :sad:



Thank you very much!

Vimeo is a flash player that says alot, why not download the footage itself from Vimeo and see if it is better

I liked the HD1000 but wanted a pocket always with me camera which the HD700 is for me. Some of my stills and videos from my HD700 are here: http://gallery.mac.com/crosby007

And on Vimeo: http://www.vimeo.com/crosby/videos (one was done with my Canon Optura but the rest are the HD700).

Camera specs are here, http://www.sanyodigital.com/product.aspx?v=18
The HD700 has a 38-190mm equiv. lens, not wide either. Some of us have purchased a large Phoenix M-Power 0.45x which gives you about 17mm, which is nicely wide.

Yup, the HD1000 video definitely looks better but HD700 ain't too bad considering it's pocketability. I'm loving my brown HD700.
