A lot happened in the last two weeks... got my shipment of Doujin from Japan, expanded my Sega CD collection and fixed some odds and ends in my other collections, there's pre-order mayhem as orders aren't being completed in full and others are getting delayed, I have a few videos in the pipelines that I'm not entirely sure how to go about creating and a few others I had to push back due to complications, my Japanese PS2 arrived, and now my next recording gadget has arrived. I'm just checking its basic functions like how well it can auto-focus and how it responds in low-light situations.

I've been saving for a little while now to get a better camera, so by the time I could afford one I liked, the prices went down, lol. So far, it doesn't seem bad at all for its price (~$450). It can zoom as it records and takes high quality photos. It has a variety of options that can be tweaked to help improve things based on the conditions, and I like how solidly it's built. Its built-in speakers aren't flawless, but they're a huge step up from my previous Aiptek HD 1080p camera with much less noise and can pick up sounds from a great distance surprisingly well, so I should be able to take photos of my collections or record them now with much better results (I was fed up with the picture quality of the Aiptek which caused me to abort my N64 collection video that I had worked on for a few days).

This is a simple video of the camera capturing with MP4 enabled (even though it can capture in Progressive AVCHD) in Intelligent Auto Mode. I'm capturing a kitten standing near my doorway. It's partly cloudy in the low seventies with mild wind gusts.
