Hi all, I run the panasonic camcorder ag-dvx100b every Sunday for my Church to record our church sermons. We use the camcorder also to project the pastor on a large screen during service. Anyway, I have...
I have looked at the video.There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the camcorder.The problem is more from the angle at which you are recording.You seem to be a little offset from center,probably because there are seats in the center and you do not want or cannot record from there so that people may sit in the middle or behind that without an obstructed view.Are you recording from as close to the seats as possible,meaning in the aisle?Try recording from the center,even if it's in a seating area.You should try experimenting a little.Have someone stand towards the center,like in the video.Move your camera around to different areas and see where you can get the best results from.Move to the furthest area back,and see how close you can zoom in to get a good picture.Then work inwards from there.If you do not have a full capacity crowd,they will understand even if you are in the seating area taking video.It should not block a whole lot of seat views.If you are quite full,just move farther back.TAKE NOTES when you are attempting to get a good picture.Seat,row,location,etc.Then you have a quick reference to adjust to if necessary.Even if all 3 legs of the tripod are not able to extend fully if shooting from a seat row,the 3rd leg should be able to shorten up to put on the seat,but you may have to weight the seat down if they are the ones which automatically pop up.If the seats have a gap between the back of the seat and the upright part,you will probably have to rig something to hold the leg in place.Using the tripod in the seat,the best idea would be to push the 3rd leg which is on the seat up against the back edge and wedge it there somehow.That would give you the best stability. gmccarthy 86 hotmail If you reply,please write something in subj line so I know it's a good email because it will show up in my junk at first.Also,a note for the speaker.When listening to public speaking,'filler' words like uh and um are VERY annoying to many who are listening.Have the speaker look at himself on video and practice not doing this.He is doing it quite a bit.Personally,that alone would have gotten me to walk out after a short time if I were at this particular link's sermon. Good luck,Greg
