example .I used NR ( noise reduction) and Flicker with HS ( high Sensitivity) what I do not see is the functions working, what are they supposed to be?

Answer would be something like flicker would best be used for sun or lamps eliminating the flare orsmear you get that resembles a purlpe line or halo. ISO setting can be played with. Nr will possably help if there is some type of sensor , or grain in a video, too much sharpiness may hav eoccured and correction of noiser eduction was needed.

or

Here is an example of what I found out shooting with NR (noisereduction) and flicker , I found by setting these functions on in this scenerio thesun to the side it created a perfect shot, the NR wa sneeded due to too much blue saturating on the video

I used a number o ffeatures and function on this clip. I am sure they were NR Wind, Flicker .

But does Noise Reduction do anything to th frame rate or video quality? I know flicker does change the frame rate but I do not know if noise reduction does or what it does.

also what are you tlking about a calendar or doupon or rebate on the camera?

Thanks a lot for the information. I was able to watch all the videos without a problem by using VideoLan player (windows).

I tried playing the sample videos with Both quicktime and VLC. They played but the video was jumpy when in full screen. I have a 19" wide screen monitor. In windows media player it doesnt even play at all. It crashed WMP 11.

My system is as follows:

Pentium 4 3.06G
1Gb Ram
Nvidia Gforce 6200
Windows XP Pro

What I did is get ahold of MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC and is uses COREAVC Video Decoder and they play perfectly... I can see DIRECTVOBSUB says its using the COREAVC Video Decorder but it appears windows media player 11 can not use it? Nor quicktime which is STILL JUMPY. and VLC plays the video strange now that I have a different codec..

I followed the directions at http://www.danielandrade.net/2007/02/28/howto-play-high-definition-videos/ to try to get things working but no luck with WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER 11 or quicktime or VLC.. only MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC..

any help would be appreciated...

You dont need a sample video to answer my question regaring how to get it to play in 16x9 HD in windows media player 11. it plays in media player classic with the COREAV CODEC but I cant seem to figure out how to get that codec to work in the regular windows media player..

If you are worried about every single Frame per second what would be the best settings?

Of Course turn all the noise reduction, shake and flicker off.. BUT what does MOVIE NOISE REDUCTION DO to the video? I dont think it says what it does in the manual...

As jd2k1 mentioned, it tries to lessen the "noise", aka grain (if it were film), you get when shooting at high ISO -- usually low light situations.

To best get the idea run a test, shoot something in a lower light situation with noise reduction off, then shoot it again with it on and compare.

but when it is on, does it do anything to the video frame rate like flicker does? I guess for normal shooting I should turn off the MOVIE NOISE REDUCTION and for LOW LIGHT turn it on? what would be considered low light by this camera? would regular indoor house lighting be LOW light or would outside at night be more like it or even in a club?

If you again use flicker it is a control for low level lighting or sun and headlights, street lamps? what does FPS have to do with any of this:? saving file space,

I doubt it. You'd need to talk to a Sanyo specialist to get specifics. It could be softening the image to blur/blend the noise and then edge shrapening the image to lessen the loss of sharpness the softening caused, or any number of other things.

What low light is varies. Some people's indoor house lighting is quite dim whereas others are quite bright -- like a library or department store. You could better state it in foot candles or lux, but few of use have meters any more to be able to translate it. Camera's rated for 13 lux in auto and 5 lux in high sensitity/lamo mode.

Low light to me is when the ISO needs to be above 200 to capture the image.

I did a test with three candles to see what the ISO differences would do: http://www.vimeo.com/458600
