1. I shot this snail with my Sanyo HD1000 on the shore of the Baltic Sea. It looks like the alien, doesn't it? :))) On this video you can see the problems with auto focus in macro mode. Sometimes camera fails to focus on the foreground and focuses on the background instead. I'd use the manual focus but then I'd have to be very careful with keeping the distance between the camera and the snail the same all the time.

    Usually I try to keep ISO on minimum (50) and set the shutter to 1/100 - 1/60 in low light conditions. This way I can shoot smooth videos at 60fps with very little noise.
