I received my HV20 two days ago and through the help of posts on this site, I am learning the coolness of the camera and understanding the features. This is my second video camera and my first with HD. I think many members can understand my lack of rest and sleep the last two days because of this camera.
I'm new to video but a veteran photojournalist working in coastal SC and NC. I started shooting video because I needed something to help with the rigors of the day-to-day boredom, which sets in after many years of pumping out daily newspaper photo requests.
Although new to the medium of motion, I have produced several web style videos and I'm open for suggestions and comments. Go to www.randallhill.org to see my portfolio of still photography and recent videos.
A couple of questions:
Since I'm shooting for the web but needing HD so I can also pull frame grabs for possible publication in the newspaper, how do you guys suggest I set the camera's HD settings? I've heard progressive is better but I'm confused about the cine mode. A short explaination of the HD modes would be helpful.
When I use a headset on the camera during recording, is it normal for they’re to be a delay between the ambient sound and the audio in the headset?
Thanks again for the providers and moderators of the forum.
