Sample Firmware Release 2 Video

This is a compilation of a half dozen clips I shot with the Release 2 firmware. I was concentrating more on different lighting situations, color saturation, and exposure more than video content to see how the camera reacts. The over-saturation is obvious, but in the wooded scene, the saturation looks higher and better than a similar clip I shot a while back with Release 1 firmware. And the white balance shift in bright/subdued lighting changes is obvious as well, but I hope to see new firmware with improvements in this soon.

An interesting thing is these separate clips were all shot in a 20 min. time frame with the same bright clear sky with the same flash memory card formatted with the SDformatter. The video average bit rate was as low as 6,553 kbps in a bright sun clip and as high as 14,989 kbps in the shady woods clip.

The transcoding on the hosting site seems to have taken a toll in sharpness, but the colors are the same on all the options.
