I have seen today that you started to film hands on videos.
May I suggest that you either start to record in a darkroom or let some sexy readheads do the recording?
Perhaps a Poll is required. I prefer sexy blondes...:P
shine on you crazy diamond
You're using a PowerShot SX200 when I interpret teh reflection correctly. There should be a automatic option for backlight conditions. This is most likely indicated by a Skiing icon.
Otherwise set the camera to use a point- or weighted point measurement. Should look like a single black point inside a frame or a single black point with a little ring raound it inside a frame for the weighted variant.
I'm sorry that I cannot help you more since I am a lawfully wedded to Nikon (at least in my heart) but the general direction must be right.
And no! We're not gentle. Your not sexy enough! And ron is wrong. When in doubt: Always go for C4 ... I mean the redhead.
For sexy blondes, brunettes, redheds and what have you, we'll need to start a "Video fund"... starting with ron and nineswords. I'll pm you with my paypal account details later
I can assure you that I'm not a sexy blonde either, but I can wear a blonde wig if you prefer.
