Softbank Aquos 945 SH

My first testshots along the way with my new 945SH, which has been announced as the first HD movie capable cellphone beside the iPhone 4 by Softbank here in Japan this summer.

First impression - it can not really match the iPhone regarding the quality, especially not in low light situations, even it promises a 12 MBs codec. The ability for fixing the ISO might help, but this option is unfortunately not available in movie mode.

At least, it has a manual focus, which is a good option as well as a tripod is actually a must for taking HD movies.

The wideangle lens is cool and an automatical macro mode is also implemented. FCP can unfortunately not import the 3gp files directly, so they have to be converted before editing. I used an AIC for most of the shots, but I like to use a ProRes codec next time.

Hope, everybody enjoys these first tests.
