Tampa Lightning with a Sony DCR-SX83
Tampa Florida is the lightning capital of North America. This is test of the Sony DCR-SX83. For this test I did not increase the lux, I set it for normal daytime shooting. The camera recorded for about two hours. I edited all of the good strikes together then slow-moed all of them in the second half of the video.
The horizontal lines during the brightest parts of the video are generated in the camera, I don't know if its the CMOS sensor or the camera's compression.
I've been shooting with this camera for about two months.
So far its been good not great, I don't like the mpeg2 recording format.
It does not play well with most editing programs.
Also, those horizontal lines mentioned above are not great.
For general sunny day shooting the kids .... very good.
