HV20 Fun

Unfortunately, no video, but I found out a cool trick while surfing online. Apparently I can turn off the gain while shooting so I can get better shadows and night shots. On the down side, this requires a lot of light, or at least more than a regular room bulb. That's still pretty cool though. I might have been able to use that trick on Saturday. I have one minute or so of footage that is a great shot but isn't that great quality-wise thanks to the gain. There was little light though since it was an outside night shoot so I'd probably be screwed either way but I'd rather be screwed without the grain.

Also, HD video is a processor hog. :)
