one problem I had with my HD700 camcorder is the lens records a rather narrow area (ie the lens is quite 'tele')
I do not want my replacement model to have same issue, but the model I keen on is another newer xacti which I might not be able to gets a 'hands on' in S'pore since this model in mind is not widely available here.
This is the lens spec for the old HD700 i having:
6.3 – 31.7 mm (38 - 190 mm on a 35 mm camera), 5x optical zoom lens, Open f/3.5 (W) – 4.7 (T)
This is the lens spec for the newer model i considering:
30x optical zoom lens; Aperture: F=1.8(W) – 4.3(T)
Focus distance: f=2.5 to 75.0mm;
Photos: f=43-1290mm(=35mm) Optical 30x zoom
Videos: f=43-1290mm(=35mm) Optical 30x zoom
How to tell the lens coverage at the most "wide" mode?
Thks in adv..
