I just wanted to state something I didnt realize from my research between the HV10 and HC3 cameras.

Because you can manually set the shutter to 1/30 or less on the HV10, you can get far better low light shots than the HC3!


With the HC3 you cant force the shutter speed below 1/60. There is an auto-slow-shutter mode but its unpredictable and largely worthless IME.


The 1/30 shutter mode is highly, highly useful on the HV10. (A bonus side effect - your shoot looks more like film at 30fps than 60fps!). The 1/15 mode even has its uses.


Dont count this camera out for low-light mode. After comparing the two, I'm sticking with the HV10.

You can take the shutter speed all the way down (up?) to 1/8 second. The exposure in low light at 1/8 looks great, but ANY movement is blurred. You can get some pretty interesting effects using the slow shutter speeds.

Agreed, but obviously 1/8th is not useable as a general purpose setting. 1/30th is very highly useable even to capture significant amounts of motion.


jon, I'll try to post something tonight. I'm not 100% sure if I have a good one-to-one shot from the Sony that would illustrate the difference clearly.


Thanks,


Andy K.

I'll try that one. I'm having a heck of a time getting these files uploaded at a couple different places - they keep crashing the upload.
