Last week I was attending my best-friends' wedding in Tumpat, Kelantan (malaysia). We drove from our place about one and a half hours, and there was raining all along the way to the wedding place. I remember when we arrived there it's already 11a.m.- and we right on schedule. The 'akad' or the process for the wedding is just simple.
But for this wedding my role is as a 'cameraman'. I was lucky and of course excited at the same time. Why? because i can try the new camcoder which newly bought, and gave it to me, less than 24 hours actually - in which condition, i am not well-prepared to try and remote the camcoder.
So, at the first time handling the camcoder, I try my best not too nervous adjusting the camcoders function - because I was well-known as computer-wise person among members and families.
But the first few minutes gave me shivers. I do not know who had adjusted the camera lens focus. The focusing is so wrong. The picture is blurry and out-of focus. Oh good, at this time i'm thinking of a Guide Book which normally provided along with the camcoder. But I cant find any - whilst now the ceremony ALREADY started. I can't be controlled by the situation right now.
So, I try to relax, and take my time. This few-precious moment has to be taken professionally. Remembering I have managed to handle many electronic devices before - and even been a 'contractor' - I tried to open the interface menu. Oh, now I see what was the problem. The focusing setting was set to manual. So i was relief. Im still the WISE man - haha!.
What the moral of the stories? You dont need 'Guide for the Dumb' in order to handle this camcoder. The interface menu is so simple. As you click, it's all in the tip of your fingers. The panel is touched-screen. I can do it in only less than five minutes, without refering to the Application Manual book.
WHAT ARE OTHER FEATURES YOU GET?
handling a camcoder is actually more exciting than just a camera. It has dual-function - movies and snap snap - pictures. The camcoder comes with HDD (hard disk drive) capacity 30Gb - actually it comes with many varieties of storage - which is VERY special - it has HDD Smart Protection. What? It prevents from any recorded images being lost when the video camera is accidentally dropped and the hard disk drives crushes. Special right?Oh, but you're given another smart alternative, there are also memory stick slot provided (which for the pictures).
