Automatic everything. 60i video with Vegas settings set to "Interpolate" in order to deinterlace. Media properties set to "disable resampling."
When I held the camera normally, the light was right in his face. I had to hold it out to the side where I couldn't see the LCD screen in order for him to be able to look at me and not get distracted by the light in his face.
I am pleased with the color. That light is 1000% better than the nasty one that comes with the camera.
