SH-2 at Night
Two nights ago it was exceptionally warm for the season, and there was less wind than usual, so I got some reflections in the water -
There was also the departure of the cruise ship PACIFIC JEWEL, which was the main incentive to leave the house -
Then I got 28 minutes worth of video, after editing, of a ferry crossing and the cruise ship departing that followed. But here is some further editing - just the cruise ship departing, speeded up x4.4.
Alright, here is the full video at camera speed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3noGaC9mvg4
Regarding my existing travel zooms, providing that service is still available for them, I will have them re-furbished for the following reasons:
Compared to the Panasonic TZ80, the noise reduction in the SH-series is discrete. Night videos are taken at 1600 ISO. In AVS Video Converter I have lifted Gamm to 7 with the videos above. At a purchase price of under US$ 350.- I will not complain about these results.
Compared to the Canon travel zooms, the SH-1 and SH-2 battery capacity is about 1/3 more. This was vital when I was recording the Morris dance gigs as I was playing the accordion for them.
I was keen on getting a bridge camera again, until I read the complaints about the audio in the Nikon B700. This suggests I cannot record my accordion playing with the camera mounted on my accordion. The audio is said to be overdriven. There appears to be no adjustment for this in the menu.
There is a catch with my Olympus SH series cameras. The mechanical neutral density filter appears to be stuck now in both SH-1 and SH-2. My SH-50 is a grey import and has an intermittent mode dial, with P-mode as the default.
