SH-50 - First Two Days
Nov 15, 2013

I wanted it as an upgrade from my SZ-30MR, specifically for video stabilisation and more than 2 stills in each video clip. In my first unintended test video I took 6 stills, and the stills have the same exposure as the video.

The videos that night from the Morris practice with the camera mounted on my accordion as I am playing it show none of the jerkiness I had to put up with through a succession of cameras since 1999. The LI-90B battery, with a quoted rating of 1275 mA hours, lasted through the practice without a low battery warning. Colour and contrast from the economy lighting at the practice location require no correction when editing.

Comparing harbour shots taken the next morning, at the same location and the same time, show smooth outlines as compared to those from the SZ-30MR.

The mode dial only turns with a deliberate action, and the video start button is set by itself, making the SH-50 as fumble-resistant as the Stylus 9010 that came out in 2010.

There is a manual setting for ISO, shutter speed and aperture.

First impressions do count, and mine are VERY confidence inspiring for the Christmas parade this afternoon.

Glad to see you are enjoying the Sh-50 Henry.

The video quality and 5 axis Is on the camera are my favourite things about it.

Turns out that the stills are not too bad either. More of that in another post.

I took part in the Glen Eden Christmas Parade, which was the main reason I wanted the camera. The 5-axis stabilisation worked incredibly well, considering I was not just walking, but playing the accordion as well.

Thanks for looking.

Henry
