I have just put this HV10 footage on Vimeo. http://www.vimeo.com/3929985 The reasons for putting it up are twofold. Firstly my daughter likes to see these family shorts while she is away at Cardiff Uni, she is mainly interested in shots of the pup. The second reason is to demonstrate the quality of the HV10 to anybody interested in buying it. (Its for sale in classified). Its not up for critique, it is simply to give an indication of the quality of picture from this little camera.

Hi Colin,

That is lovely:)

I can vouch for the HV10 being an amazing piece of technology. I remember using one on a monopod and when I combined the footage with our FX1's I personally thought the HV10 was better, obviously in good lighting conditions.

Cheers,

Flame.

Thanks Flame. I treated myself to a Canon HV30, so the HV10 is up for sale. But the more I look at the quality that little cam pushes out, the more I think, I dont care if it doesnt sell.
The HV30 is also superb for a single CMOS camera, but that little HV10 fits in a jacket pocket so much easier. I took your advice last year, and used the HV10 as third cam (non critical shots) at a couple of weddings, it proved really usefull. I do find that the HV 30 cuts quite well with the EX1, when used for cutaways and infill shots, quite amazing for a £600 camcorder.

Hi Colin,

How are you finding the EX1 for weddings. I absolutely love this camera for the manual freedom and creative capabilities it gives. I am able to pull off some extreme pull and throw focus which I cannot do with the fx1 without adding a brevis.

Excited, but a little concerned about the ir contamination.....

Cheers,

Flame.

I have not come across the IR problem yet, it is said to be most apparent under tungston lighting. I hire the EX1 from Hireacamera.com, very reasonable weekend rates. I have shot 3 weddings and 2 web promo videos with it so far, and touch wood, have not had any problems. There is a good thread on the problem here, http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=164559 you may have seen it, but if not, it throws some light on the whole IR problem, (no pun intended). As you say, this is some camera, and more.
