Yes, Ido tend to use exposure compensationtotryand controlhighlights, sometimes at the expense of shadow detail. I probably need to look a little closer at what I'm doing with these TZ5 files. The exposure system is so much better than what I was used to dealing with on the TZ3. I probably should just "let it go" sometimes and be a little more trusting in what it's trying to do.

Could you tell me what clips satisfied you regarding sound quality on the TZ5? I'm thinking of buying it and that's just about my only gripe.

Thanks.

I have not found many but this has a couple http://dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?p=845387

They are not much to go on, but for me I have nothing and this gives an all round solution.

Edit.... just found this one as well http://www.vimeo.com/853725?pg=embed&sec=853725it's compressed but still not bad.

BTW, I ordered my TZ5 today, I decided that there was not a lot to gain by waiting as it is less than any of my lenses (bar one) so not a big issue to get the ability to shoot a variety of day to day shots and video easily.

I will let you all know what I think of this and try to keep in mind it is not a dSLR. I will post some full size shots for people to check out and some video too so others can make an informed decision on this.

Mark, it would be greatly appriciated if you could shoot some HD clips yourself and post them up. Maybe then I could finally decide between it, the A650 and the S5 IS.
Oh, and tell us how you like it overall too :G

Thanks.

Chris

Chris, I will certainly post some stuff over the weekend so you can see how it all works out.

I'm playing the waiting game now for the courier to arrive!!
