Hopefully this thread won't get the same rubbish attitude that that 'Of Mice And Men' thread did more than 6 months back.
I haven't had enough time for any serious projects so I've been content shoveling out more usual road and update videos. I'm now using Linux of course (Cinelerra's my editor) since Pinnacle Studio started acting weird with transitions and such. Much better video quality since the switchover I've noticed, and recently I discovered the 25fps progressive feature on the HV40 so I've started utilizing that (my last interlaced video turned out awful). Does seem to mean more dropouts on the tape though. Speaking of tape, Panasonic's primary consumer offering does seem to be holding up well for my needs, I bought a 10-pack in November and I'm onto my 6th of that one now. Don't do many takes or videos for that matter so I go through cassettes pretty slowly. When I finally runout I might try out some Fuji's.
You can check out my YT channel here, but not all of those are brand new videos (I have had a real go facelifting my old standard definition videos as my tech is upgraded). So here's a small selection of my latest HV40 videos, starting with the newest.
