Beach Flight
Shot this early in the morning Monday at our family's cottage on Grand Traverse Bay (Lake Michigan).

Sony HC3: Had the manual focus set wrong, was not adjusted out to "landscape".

Using a Tokina .5x wide angle lens that shows up in the corners if you forget to zoom in a touch.

Image stabilization was on. Auto exposure on.

Low res. 15mb file, still learning Sony Vegas and what setting's for rendering etc..

Besides that hope you enjoy and all feedback/help wanted.

Please overlook the O.I.W. (operator induced wobbles-coined by Scotty D.)

Video actually looks pretty smooth in forward flight. Is it the mount or image stabi? Or both?

Don't worry about the vignetting (the dark corners). You can crop those out with your post production s/w.

I think its the image stabi. If I just zoom in a tiny bit the vignetting won't show up.

I'll try it with the OIS turned off and see what the results are.

It was 7:00am and the sun was still over the trees and the Sony HC3 is not the best in low light conditions.

The mount is the Mini Pro 1.

Nice 'wave'

Auto exposure on.
Is there a way to avoid the change in light levels (mostly going dark) when the sun is facing the lens? What is the better of two evils; auto exposure or manual exposure?

What could be more fun?

Yes don't fly at 7:00am and get use to flying in the wind.

I would guess Auto exposure on and hope the camera can adjust. If not you have to guess for a happy medium in manual mode.
