Saw this great HD vid on the HD channel. They used a Canon EOS 5D MK II and Final Cut software. Looked fantastic! Hmmm......
I decided to try the same with my little inexpensive Aiptek Z5X5P Action HD video camera. No fancy software- just the free MS MovieMaker software that comes with XP and Vista. I have Vista.
3 candles (3 lux?). Didn't get my face far enough down and camera did a bit of focus searching at times but understandable since the candles were dominating the light for focus. I was wearing dark clothing too. Other than that- not too shabby!
