Panning/motion issues with a Sony HDV
on Aug 12, 2008 at 3:58:49 pm

I tried out a Sony HC9 HDV over the weekend and wondering if this is how MPEG-2 HDV is...

I shot in 1080/60i in bright sunlight. The picture was great, but if I did much panning or moved the camera (I guess the same as panning to the camera) the video often looked really jerky as though the steady shot was turned off.

A good example is if someone walked from your right to left and you followed them with the camera to keep them in frame. The video was shaky/wobbly and looked like the OIS was off. Then once I held the camera still everything was fine. Walking with the camera (I know, not ideal) or riding in a car was completely unwatchable where is with standard def DV it looks a bit bumpy, but totally usable.

So is this what to expect with HDV or is this a Sony (defective camera?) issue?

Sorry I didn't see there was a Sony forum, HOWEVER I'm considering a HV30 or HF10.

I uploaded a couple sample clips (they're pretty large). On the in-car shot you can see the lighthouse snaps left to right. The crab clip is really really bad at first. You see some funkiness at 21s and 32s. Once I stop moving the camera it looks good. These aren't the best shots, but pretty good examples of what I'm talking about

So is this OIS correction and is this normal? Does Canon act the same way?
