The first HD movie using the Luxmedia 12-HD camera and as you can see the jumping/skipping has been solved this is down to me using a class 10 memory crad, so if you intend on buying this camera use nothing less than a class 10 card. The rest of the camera has a great 3" inch screen to look at this is brilliant, works well with the zoom eyepiece I am using. Bad points the menu buttons are small, this won't be a problem in summer but winter with gloves on its IMPOSSIBLE, battery life is at the moment to me terrible, I need to work on this watch this space
