"Since playback from the device itself takes up considerably less cycles that record, I would assume, from you comments, that the record process is a bit cack resulting in dodgy files." No the recorded files were fine. otherwise the transcoded files would have audio that was out of sync.
Still all we want is a small device with 720p at 30 fps (not 25 or god forbid 24) and a 10x optical zoom. OIS and a single button to set the white balance. That would do me :)
Again, Samsung seem to miss the simple things that are the difference between a good and a great product.
Colour temperature on the sample shots were all over the place.
Nice for weekend snappers, but it's not as good as a flip.
Also, no 25fps?
Not even as simple as that
It all harks back to vacuum tube TV cameras, no doubt still used because it conveniently exaggerates the sensor size for those who believe it is a straight measurement.
See http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/key=Sensor_Sizes for the gory details, but suffice to say the actual size is about two-thirds of the numeric value.
A 1/2.3" sensor is actually about 7.7mm on the diagonal.
So no 25fps mode then?
Thats a shame and no image stabliser and optical zoom.
because it's a standard CMOS size - 1/2.3 inch.
it would be approximated to 11mm, but is an imperial size.
something tells me u don't own a set of spanners....
