I never thought that I would enjoy recording video. If you’d asked me less than a year ago what I think about the much hyped topics of VDSLR and 4k video I would just shrug my shoulders in utter indifference. But since then I have made an intellectual U-turn, so to speak.

I have come to realize that recording video is as challenging as it is fun. I don’t pretend to be good at it, but I enjoy it very much. The following video was recorded with my father’s action camera, a Panasonic HX-A1M. I placed the HX-A1M on the riverbed and started the recording via my smartphone and the Panasonic Image App.

Due to low contrast when recording underwater contrast, highlights and shadows were tweaked in Adobe Premiere Elements 14.

I’m very pleased with the high ISO performance of the comparatively tiny 1″ sensor. IMO ISO1600 is perfectly usable. ISO3200 on the other hand is more situational. Sometimes it’s all good, other times it’s noisy as hell. I guess you have to be much more precise with exposure when using ISO3200. However, that is nothing new to me. High sensitivity film behaved the same way. The higher you go, less room for error you have.
