      Just got Elura 100. In fair light, video was grainy. How can I maximize sharpness with this camcorder? What light (s) should I buy? Just wanna record myself playin guitar solo. I get natural light from nearby window—but light still not great in my apt.

      THANKS!!

      Hank, you think that’s the reason my video was grainy? Or the most likely reason?

      Absolute LAST question, and YOU ARE VERY GENEROUS!!!!

      Even for just me and a guitar on a chair—three lights?

      So I can’t buy these things from you?

      Yuck on one thing–tripods for three lights!!!! Otherwise I’ll be clamping them on the blinds and picture frames–start a fire!

      Can anyone recommend a set of lights that would satisfy the "basic three-point lighting" technique that Helpful Hank mentions? I see individual lights, not sets.

      just for me and guitar in low lit apartment.

      Thanks,

      Flop
