  1. HV30 locking up in stills mode - anyone seen this?

    I tried the stills mode on my HV30 after not using it for a while, and it is locking the camera up.

    The lock up happens when the selector switch is in the card mode. The camera seems to lockup...
  2. Canon HV-30, low use, plus Raynox .66x adapter lens, ATR55 shotgun mic

    I am selling my Canon HV-30, cosmetically, it is like new, the only mark that I can see on it is a tiny scuff on the top of the lens ring, and mechanically it is perfect. I only used it on a tripod...

    I'm assuming by "B pictures" he means B frames. What does he mean, that it's not using a GOP structure - but then it wouldn't be anything like AVCHD? or that without B frames it's only relying on I...

    No, that makes a lot of sense to me. The most interesting thing in the interview for video type is this comment about the codec used, which makes it seem like it is not the standard AVCHD (or...

    This is built on a still camera body/lens combo. So, manual zoom via ring on lens. BTW, the GH1 has autofocus during video recording, unlike the other DSLRs, AFAIK

    Short answer is no, DOF is a result of lens focal length, to get the same image on the CCD as on the adapter GG, you would have to use an ultra wide angle 35mm lens - in fact, the same focal length...

    Wrong? can you explain? This is correct both as to Sony cameras and the HVx0. See the following page.

    You're going to be fine with the H2, and for your purposes as long as you line up the H2 audio with the camera audio reasonably close you'll be good to go. Good luck.

    Most sync drift is linear. It's pretty constant between devices of the same type (i.e., two H2s will drift at about the same rate). It's different between different devices (e.g., Zoom H2 and Sony...

    What I meant was that if you shoot 50 minutes of video and record audio on the Zoom, when you sync up the start of the take in your editor, you'll see that the audio will have drifted a second or so...
