Post Samsung Camcorders
Interesting to see the new Samsung camcorders offer a time-lapse mode:

"The camcorders also feature a HD Time Lapse recording mode that will give consumers the ability to experiment with their creativity. When shooting in the Time Lapse recording mode, the camcorder will record a single image at an interval pre-selected by the user, either 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, or 30 seconds, and will save each image as one single movie file."

Finally they are listening! 1 3 5 is perfect IMHO. Why oh why don't more point and shoots have this option??

Now in terms of IQ I'm not going to hold my breath on this one... and what the heck is up with "each image as one single movie file"

Definitely looks interesting. What is the sensor size?

"Each of the new H-Series full-HD camcorders feature a 1/4.5", 2.2 mega-pixel CMOS imaging sensor"

So how do you read that? Is 1/4.5" the same as 3/8ths?

I don't understand those sensor size specs.

I believe that basically means that the plate is slightly larger than a 1/4" around 4mmx3mm. supa small

@ $500 I'm not impressed. Maybe $250 or so and I'd be like 'oh that's neato'

Still. It's a start...

The price is pretty similar to other Sony / Canon / Panasonic AVCHD models.
I'm a big time convert to tape-less systems. Makes a big difference in the practical side of things of shooting in the extreme cold, and is a whole lot easier on the editing end too.

Still, I definitely wouldn't use one for these any serious work. It is a start in the right direction though.
Hopefully others will start to include these features in their more upmarket models sometime soon.

What is the best prosumer video camcorder for filming skateboarding? My sixteen year old wants to do this for a living. I want a good video camcorder for filming skateboarding which is what he likes.I realize they're expensive but I want a solid camcorder that's going to last.

Probably be best off with a Panasonic HVX, IMHO.

I never posted this to the forum after making my video, but it seems pretty relevant to the subject. I have a Panasonic HDC-TM700, which retails for about 1000 here in Canada (seen it on sale for 800 once). And an underwater housing.

Its got a 3 chip-CMOS sensor, which is 1/4.1 inches (x3)...however that works. Focal Range (35mm equiv.) 35 - 420mm , at f/1.5 - f/2.8. And can record in 1080/60p. And timelapse feature as well.

I didn;t upload the HD version, so I'm not sure how valid my argument is until you see that. This was only 60i as well. The opening scene was using the camcorders timelapse feature. Have a look anyways, I was pretty blown away by the footage, for a camcorder... edited in Sony Vegas.

Those are some incredibly steady underwater shots. Did you actually set up a tripod underwater? Was the camera on top or attached under the center pole? Alternatively, was the camera resting against a rock, or were you laying down on the bottom? You have some very steady underwater shots. Any advice for someone trying to learn how to do a more stable underwater shot?
