MOBILE CAMERA VIDEOS NEW ON BLUE-GREY! (2)

So what have we learned then class?
Well, I think the camera has difficulty with lots of movement in frame (gets very pixellated), produces a pretty poor quality film (not great focus), has trouble with light on water and contrast levels (that may be my setup on the camera itself), and is very subject to noise from the wind.

That all said, I think my camera will make a very nice (free!) substitute for a proper grown-up video camera for the time being!
I really hope to make more interesting (not test) films of for example, our Woodpecker on its post (if it ever returns), and anything else that catches our eyes...

Welcome to the videoing community! As you have already found... the quality on YouTube is pretty awful (not your fault). I've tested out both YouTube and Google Video, and I've actually found the quality on Google Video better (slightly higher resolution). It's not necessarily your camera that is having problem with movement and water... I've found that once Google Video does it's compression procedure it doesn't like these things (even though my original film can look fine). Also grass (it hates grass). I've started using a tripod more and trying to stick to one position... it seems to like that. Looking forward to the woodpecker video! Well done! Jane
