Then, of course, post the videos for us. This can be useful. Thanks.
Well Best Buy was not happy as they had to open up a new one sealed in the box for me to test. They don't have a demo unit yet.
I used all the settings out of the box except for using the memory card which i formatted and setting it to 60p.
I was really unimpressed with the 1:30 of video I have also I think it's 60i footage, but the battery was low and the Best Buy guy was less than helpful. I did a low light test but everything was done in 5 mins from open box to me ejecting the SD card.
I also don't like how the SD card put into my PS3 resets the PS3 everytime I watch it.
Low light isn't all that great in this video and I went into their entertainment room which is very low light. I also found the focus to be quite slow.
I'd upload the video but it's done very fast and looks like crap.
I did capture the Best Buy guy's sour look for posterity. He clearly did not want to use a new camera to do this.
