Would like to say I really LOVE your cat photo ;-)))
It make me lough every time I see it !

I'm now testing and comparing the terrific AVCHD-lite from PANASONIC TZ7, who is also an excellent hybrid camera...

After hours, I finally founsd the BEST EXPORT SETTINGS for make it compatible with WindoMovieMaker, who is for me the most easy and fast frewware for quick montage ;-)
(Need many tests...)

You can see the result here :

and here with EXPORT DETAILS in .JPG

Anyway, the CONVERTING freeware SUPER seems to be the BEST at all.
;-)

To be continued...

Default Careful filming in water!!!

I'll be using the camera on my upcoming trip to Greece where I expect to capture some fun footage under water and on land. Hopefully I'll find time to post some samples here later on.
Received my new Xacti CA9 a few weeks ago out of Hong Kong. Am now on holidays in North Queensland and took it out to the Great Barrier Reef yesterday. Went snorkelling and took some great shots of coral, fish and the kids enjoying themselves but ...

After about 20 minutes in the water it stopped working. When I got back to the pontoon I opened the battery compartment and there was a small amount of water inside. The compartment had been properly closed and I''d stayed on top of the water (I was wearing a floatation suit) so didn't go close to the 5ft/1.5m limit but it failed to keep the water out.

Am very disappointed and will have to pursue a replacement/refund when I get home. Does anybody know of similar occurances?

I thought it will happen to Olympus' waterproof camera only.
I feel sorry for your experience!

For what it's worth this seems to be a problem with ALL these waterproof cameras. A friend purchased an cheap Vivitar 850W for a trip to Mexico just for a fun backup to his regular camera that he could use in the water.

Anyway he tested it at the beach and he said it had water in the lens and he also was certain he'd closed it properly. He was thinking of taking it back for a refund. I encouraged him to give it one more try as I always believe in giving a device a second chance as often the first one tends to have problems due to bad luck etc.

Anyway the second one he used while on his trip and he said it performed flawlessly. I suspect it only needs a minor defect in the seal due to manufacturing tolerances that you can't really see for them to fail as water, like sand is notorious for getting in any minor defect. It only takes a few drops to seep in over the time you're in the water to do the damage.
