Nice obwan! Question: What are you using to record? Your camera has very clear low/no light quality. I've tried with my JVC Everio even with manual settings (manual focus so the autofocus doesn't go crazy) and always get very grainy video.

Maybe I'll have to try my Canon EOS T2i - it has excellent 1080p recording and I'm much more familiar with the settings on it. Except of course, I'm always using it to shoot PHOTOS instead :)

I'm using the Samsung iT100. I was skeptical when my wife got it with her airmiles but after reading reviews and seeing some work done with the camera i was impreesed. Having done some videos with it I'm pleased, although it doesn't have continuous focus. The 720p HD recording is great for picture quality and transposes well to TV.

Yes the night time video is crystal clear. Most camcorders have VERY grainy video during dark shooting. Very impressive.
