Hi-

Am new to this digital age- could NOT resist the C6- small, versatile -

Bought on E-bay- arrived FAST- onlyproblem- I do not read nor speak Japanese.

Need to get English language instructions. Any source suggested ?:?

Also saw DVD burner which burns cards directly onto DVD without a computer-

anyone with experience with these with recommendations?

Thanks in advance-

Mike

Mike

I find detailed reading on a monitor difficult- was hoping to find a hard copy English language manual.

...and you still aren't ready to embrace it yet, are you! Next time when reading a PDF on screen, try pressing CTRL+L to make it full screen, then perhaps CTRL+M to control the size. Then you can use CTRL+F to find things easily, you can't do that with paper.

Ouch.. used to idiot-proof tech? I would not have recommended the C6. I mean, the Sanyo is good, but digital cameras like this seem to require a lot of post-processing to get adequate results out of them.

Okay, at first I thought the camera was pretty good, but after reading about "noisy" pictures and video, I found that they were very noticeably noisy, and then I felt pretty disappointed, and then I discovered that the methods of correcting them create a lot of work after the camera. For instance, to de-noise video, I found a great solution called "Neat Video" (neatvideo.com) but it runs at 1.0 fps on a fairly up-to-date machine, so a 2 minute clip takes 60 minutes to process. The results are impressive, yes, I just wish it didn't require so much post-processing to get that quality.

Personally, I don't mind putting in a little effort to improve the results, but with Neat Video it's starting to get a little out of hand... not to mention, costing another $99.90!! :evil:

Do you mean the results on a TV screen REQUIRE post processing to be acceptable ??
