I thank you very much for your prompt respons and your wonderfull camera.I am enjoying it everyday by discovering the new possibilities i have to make better films recording.
Summary: Got my hands on one of these babies this weekend for a no-budget short film. Loved it. So easy to use, and the picture is great. It's true, the finished look is not "cinematic", which is a fair criticism, but for the price it is great if you're looking to upgrade to a high-def digital picture. Watched the playback on a 16:9 widescreen TV before editing and it was beautiful. However, you can't rely on the auto-functions.
