And in the press reviews Cyberlink Powerdirector comes first and VideoStudio comes second!!


You pays your money and takes your choice. This is why the trial downloads are so useful.

For the past several years I have used Serif MoviePlusX6, a company based in England. You can download a limited starter edition,while the full program is $80. You can probably find the older version MoviePlus X5 much cheaper.

I agree with your first point. The press seemes to favor those two. But each time I've read reviews, there are misstatements or errors in the section on the only editor I know anything about.

I disagree with your point about taking advantage of trial downloads. I did that a few years ago trying to figure out differences. It took so long to understand two of them well enough to really know true differnces, that I gave up trying on the next two. Now, if and when somebody asks, I suggest to pick one based on price, articles, a WAG or a dartboard and focus on learning it well enough so that you can breeze through projects.

hi all,

i have the HC-V700M and i'm wondering if it is posible to use it as a conferencing cam using the usb cable.
by default, connecting to the pc only give me access to the storage.
it would be great to use it as a skype/hangout cam.

any ideas? thanks in advance

No the USB is for file transfer not live video. The HDMI and A/V are live during recording or in the pause mode.

Took The V700 To An Outdoor Concert

This was the Capital City (Olympia, WA) Pride Festival last weekend. I used a monopod to keep the camcorder from getting too much movement and it came out pretty good. This will be the last video I make with the V700. I just ordered a Panasonic HC-X920K and the V700 will be going to eBay on Monday.

My camera battery discharges even when the camera is turned off. Is it a normal behavior or is it battery's fault?

All the cameras are on "hot start" i.e. the camera switches on directly the LCD screen is opened or the soft press on/off switch is pressed so the circuits are live but taking very little current. So the battery will slowly discharge.
The batteries do tend to last for a few weeks before requiring a recharge if the camera is not in use but if the battery is discharging faster than this while the camera is "switched off" then the battery may be at fault.

Thanks for confirmation, it does last couple of weeks before recharge. Will it help if I remove the battery while it's off? Is it safe?

How to shoot a contrasty, black & white video?

Hello, guys! I saw this video, and I liked the contrasty, black & white look.


I looked through the menu of my camcorder, and I didn't see anything that says "click here to make your video look exactly like the one you saw on Youtube the other day!" How can I get this look? is it certain recording settings, or is it going to be mostly post-processing?

Thanks!
