Here is something interesting. I figured I would try to use my current camera first before getting a new one. This was last week. This is the camera I have used for all of my build threads over the years and it takes great photos. I tried to take a couple videos with it in my backyard panning back and fourth the other day and they looked crappy. Anyway, just now I lookied up the specs on it and it has a CCD sensor! Maybe it has horrible specs for the video or shutter speed? Can you guys help me figure out why this camera is so poor? Im ready any time to get the SX30IS but just want to be sure I dont already have a suitable camera before I do. Here it is.
