FZ200 16:9 pictures, video and more
Hi, new to this camera just received it a few days ago. Got it in time to shoot pictures and video of my daughter's 3v3 soccer tournament. See www.youtube.com/evileye2011 one video is just a video of pictures taken 12-08-2012 and the other is video taken 12-09-2012.
A couple of notes: the 16:9 aspect ratio for wide screen pictures I shoot to use in HD
video is only 9mp. And you have to set each dial setting to 16:9 aspect. For instance when I set the dial to Auto and set the aspect to 16:9 and then set the dial to shutter priority it was on 4:3. Its auto focus is very fast and I was impressed at the action I caught even when shooting rapid shots.
In auto setting I noticed a little over exposure when the sun came out the second day.
I am happy with the results so far. The video image stabilizing is not near as good as my Sony HDR-CX130, but is OK. I use a mono-pod.
Any feedback is welcome.
