Hi,

Well, I didn't get everything done yet, but here are two links to low light video same scene on C5/C6.

Please note the time / date for the C5 was still set to Japan - the videos are shot only a minute or two appart.

Low light - indoors with only some 30w halogen spots on the artwork. I used this area since it is challenging going from dark foreground to with bright background objects and reflections off of the framed art.

Quite a difference - please note the reduction in auto-focus / zoom noise as well.

Both cameras were set to multipoint auto-focus / highest video quality ([email protected]).

I will try to get to some other comparisons soon.

Care to give anymore detail than that? I've found my main problem with the C5 is that the flash is utterly miserable (completely useless basically) for anything beyond about 1 foot of range. Other than that I've not really had problems with it (haven't videod much in low light so can't comment more on that).

ristraman... THANK YOU!! Somuch appreciated! :G

Wow, I was beginning to worry there, notseeing much feedback on the low light performance of the C6. Those two videos you posted are EXCELLENT demonstrations of the differences between the C5 and the C6 with indoor only lighting.Two videos that can actually be compared side by side, brilliant!It is great to actually finally see this difference in action. Andit ISa night and day difference. :shock:

Thanks again ristraman, really appreciate you posting this man! I hope I'm not gushing too much. :-)

By the ways guys, don't forget to change the "View Size" to '640' or 'Original' when you are at the Putfile site to see the full size original video because it defaults to a smaller size.

I hope you don't mind this ristraman, if you do let me know (you can PM me), and I'll take it down immediately. (Oh, and I only just noticed Putfile now forces registration to post anything, that's new, darn!)

I recommend for anyone interested to go and see the videos posted by ristraman. For those of you who can't see the video, I made a screen capture of the C5 and C6 low light videos to show a side-by-side. This has not been edited other than the addition of text, however, it has been reduced and JPEG compressed to post here, so the image quality cannot be judged, however it does give a good idea as to the light capture differences. Thismight beone of the brightest scenes in the video; earlier the C5 video is practically black while the C6 shows a warm (lighting) indoor scene.

Thanks a lot for the 2 video comparisons ristraman! There's a huge difference! The low light video is a lot better.

This camera seems to meet all of my needs. I just need to read 1-2 more reviews on the C6 as well as some reviews on the strength of the flash

Huge difference indeed.

Next question;

I've seen some side-by-side still photos taken with the Sony T9... image stabilization on/off. The pics with the optical image stabilization ON were dramatically sharper than when the stabilization was off. Do you think the C6 will be capable of taking as sharp images when handheld with the "digital stabilization" on or off.

thanks
