OK. All I have ever used is the #3-4. Tom, thank god for anal people!! And for posting the thread.
And airmob for replying to me.
. The refocusing for far field videos definitely helps, but the post processing sharpening (I use the "asharp" filter in AviDemux) definitely helps even more! I also desaturate the colors so they look like the real scene, and back off the contrast one click. On that last video, I think maybe it could look even better if I hadn't diminished the contrast quite as much. I used the settings I had set up for my prior camera, and I think I need to tweak a bit for this newer camera.

BTW, the still picture of the eagle plane was NOT taken with the HD key cam (it's taped on the birds neck). I don't think my focus would be quite "on" that close up with the far field re-focusing I did for AV use.
