Hi, all!This post is for those who want to make the most of this camcorder
Thank you for your time! Some people watched my links with shaking video
and discussed this issue.
Let's see several main arguments of this discussion:1). I did not see any shaking, vibration of video that you have posted on vimeo. This is because of:
a) there is no vibration at all
b) some people can see it, or some people cannot see it. This issue is user specific.
Did you watch a video on Vimeo in small preview window, or you have downloaded a full clip and played it on Full screen LCD\\Plazma?
Sorry, I did not inform you how to watch this video. On all my videos the initial shaking (1-2 sec) is a shaking when I press a REC button.
Like on this video of user that I have found recently:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbX9w6__XNg
First a man press REC button, then after a couple of sec. a video stabilized and shakes automatically.
All people see this issue on Full screen LCD\\Plazma (they downloaded a native mts-file from Vimeo) and only few people
can see it in small size preview window. I think this is normal.
FOR ALL WHO DID NOT SEE SHAKING on my clips, please,
see a clip of a man who first found this issue and arranged video more professionally:2.) This is an illusion because of all professional reviews did not notice a shaking video at all in this model of camcorder.
Please, show me a professional review that checked this camcorder on tripod with 45... 90 degrees of shooting. It's very easy to imagine the situation when you shoot from tripod a Cathedral (upward shooting) or valley from the hill (downward shooting). All reviews check only a horizontal shooting!
In my country, I have posted an issue on video forum , and professional video reviewers answered me that they checked this camcorder and did not notice any shaking. But 2 days ago one of them posted a message: Yes, there is a shaking of video on tripod with shooting downward at 90 degrees. I will check other degrees on Saturday. How did I miss this issue before?3) Why only few people noticed this issue?
This is because ~ 90 % people use hand shooting and rarely tripod shoot.
When you see a low-frequency vibration of video (hand shooting) on the screen you never notice a high-frequency vibration video at a time!4)Why I should care about fan noise and video shaking? All camcorders have disadvantages.
So, there are disadvantages that can be walk around. For example, fan noise.
a) buy external mic
b) change record level
c) use audio restoration software to remove fan noise, such as izotopeRX software.
But you can not remove video shaking in Panasonic TM 700 when shooting from tripod at non-horizontal positions, because turning OF and ON O.I.S did not help!5)What next?
If Panasonic will notice a feedback from users, may be a future firmware update will help (if this is a firmware issue).
