The Official Panasonic HC-V720 Owners Thread - Page 8

post #211 of 224
Hey guys I just got the V720 and i'm having problems getting it to work with Ustream and my computer. I can't get Adobe Flash to recognize the camera. Anyone else run into this problem? I have the Wi-Fi set up correctly

You can only stream directely to ustream from the camera. If you wish to plug the camera to your computer to use a broadcasting program (Wirecast, Open Broadcaster software or Flash) you have to connect the camera to an encoder (Black Magic or AverMedia) and from the encoder to your computer.

All the best

Hi.. I recently purchased a hc v 720.. I had purchased it to record my lectures that I provide to students in my training centre. 

Is there a suitable external microphone (other than panasonic) that I can use for recording my lectures. Can you provide me the specs for the microphone.

Welcome to the forum!

As many will say, the hard part of video is audio! Besides Panasonic, there are several brands of mics. Leading brands that come to mind are Rhode and AudioTechna.

Without know a little more about your situation, few here will be able to help much. What is the room like? How far away is the camera? How much background noise is there? What is wrong with the audio that the camera is recording with it's built in mic?

Good luck!

Thanks a ton bsprague... The room is roughly 600 sq ft and the camera would be positioned about 10 - 12 ft away from the speaker. I haven't tried with the built-in mic as I assumed that the surrounding noise may deteriorate the quality of the audio.. 

It would be great if you can mention the specifications for a suitable mic can be provided, as I am not sure whether the brands available in US and Europe would be available in India..

Try something like one of these:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002GYPS3M/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=5UYKHOCXT09L&coliid=I1AVQ4NFQ998UP

http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATR-3350-Omnidirectional-Condenser-Microphone/dp/B002HJ9PTO/ref=pd_cp_MI_2

Be sure you check the diameter of the plug in on the camera. You may need an adapter if the mic plug is the wrong size.

Is there any other way how to watch video from PC on camcoder than ustream? I dont want watch from tablet or smartphone. Only from PC. If I discovered that ustream has only 30 day trial period so I was pretty pissed off.

Tried VLC player as DLNA client but no luck.

 
I will be grateful for any advice

I have been shooting a lot of nature with my v720, and noticed that the clouds and skies are darker and more purple than with my old TM80.

I tried flipping Backlight Compensation to On and it made the skies so much brighter and more natural! Can someone explain this feature to me, and why it is off by default?
When to use, and when not to use?


For outdoor scenes, what are your recommended settings? I shoot in 1050p, iZoom50 (sometimes go digital for faraway animals), face recog ON and face framing: all. Hybrid O.I.S is on, and no guidelines, gage or AGS.

It was the backlight compensation that really made my outdoor shots look more light and natural though. Kinda sad I just found it after returning from a long outdoors holiday. :-)

Unrelated: clipping pictures out of the videos with Panasonics HD Writer program produces vastly poorer scene-grabs than earlier. Where I would have the screenshots at about 2MB with my TM80, they are ½MB now. Is this a software issue - should I go back to an earlier version of HD Writer?

can the panasonic record clips while also reviewing on an ipad.

I am a football coach looking for a camera that can record while reviewing plays on the sideline via ipad.

we pause in between each play and would like to continue to record the game while also looking at previous clips on ipad.

has anyone tried this.

i have searched the forums but not a lot of people using the camera for what i want.

Backlight compensation is to be used when your subject is in front of something very bright, like a sunny window. Putting the camera in Backlight Compensation mode tells the camera to adjust the iris and shutter speed for darker portions of the image to make them more visible.

What software do you all use to stitch several AVCHD files together seamlessly without re-encoding?

TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 4 is the only software that does what you want correctly. I used it for all my AVCHD videos.
