Just a few from my HX9V

Birdie heavily cropped and all at 10m.

Re: Just a few from my HX9V

Excellent! If you don't mind, could you show us the results of 10 fps full-frame. In theory the IQ should be the same, but just curious.

Also, would a reduced size, say 10mp, results in lesser IQ? For all practical purposes, 16mp would be too much.

Re: Just a few from my HX9V

Thanks again, dereham. I think its becoming quite clear that this is the camera to get.
Any issues with the GPS? Or can it be turned off?

GPS can be turned off - completely

i read from another person who has it that GPS can be turned off when you set up the camera for the first time.

and you have to reset camera settings to turn it on/off

Re: Just a few from my HX9V

Thanks for posting. Doesn't shooting at 10M pixels just crop out 6M pixels around the edges (i.e. no advantage for doing this)? I don't know, so that is why I am asking. Ideally, the sensor would double up some pixels to make super pixels.

No, the camera doesn't crop out the pixels - otherwise the crop factor would be increased and you'd lose the 24mm wide angle.

Ideally, resizing should be down on the computer using a known and high-quality algorithm such as Lanczos.

We don't know how the Sony resizes image in camera and the resizing process may be limited by processing power.

2nd Video Test.

It wasn't particularily windy but at the end of this this test it sounds none to clever. A cause for concern perhaps?

IA mode was used.

Nope - you can turn it on and off at will from the menu settings, see on my website:

if it wasn't particularily windy why was the lady's hair & skirt blowing in the wind?

Re: 2nd Video Test.

This 2nd video didn't seem to be at the highest speed or full HD resolution. If that's the case, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Also, in general, it'd be hard to hold a small camera steady in a zoom. I consider myself a good photographer with steady hands. I would normally not pan the camera too quickly across a wide view.

I find with the movie mode set to its highest (PS/28Mbps) which is 50fps, panning L to R (or vice versa!) is very smooth and wind cut works well without reducing the sound quality (which is superb) too much. Also, the Active Steadyshot is so effective it is possible to hand-hold at 16x zoom and get an image that almost looks like it is on a tripod!
