Gordon Laing from cameralabs.com place on Vimeo 2 videos: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 / FZ35 handheld HD video with zoom: vimeo.com/6554623 and Canon PowerShot SX20 IS handheld HD video with zoom: vimeo.com/6554304
I had the idea to compare the videos on a the same film. I downloaded the 2 original videos as mov clips.
I place theses videos together in Sony Vegas Platinum 9 and I rendered as Sony mp4 files.
You may check the quality of theses videos. But I think that the Panasonic POWER O.I.S. (Optical image stabilizer) is better than Canon IS.
With you to compare!
In the Canon and Panasonic original clip, why does the cams and especially the FZ35/38 got those horrible violet bandings at the start? Is it a problem due to the CCD chip and the reflexions of the light? How to avoid them?
