I was playing around on the 4th of July and decided to shoot on AV mode to get a narrow depth of field. So far I liked what I've seen. Thought I would post it so others thinking about the HV30 could see how well it does on blurring the background, stock without any special lens.

First shot (Yellow Lab) zoomed 60% or so Ap F2.4

Second Shot (My chihuahua Zeke) not zoomed except for zoom fade and when on the dock. On the Beach I used Ap F1.8, on the dock I zoomed in at 50+% and Ap was F2.4

Third Shot (Andrew eating a Chip) Zoomed 80-90% Ap F2.4

Again this is with no add-on lens just stock as if out of the box. Video edit was just snip and placed no filters were used and NO Sharpen or Unsharpmask was applied.

This Video is unaltered.

Note: video was all shot hand held with no tripod. IS was on and Focas was Auto with IA focas on.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
