Hi Tom,Well, I guess you


Hi Tom,

Well, I guess you could say I was kidding when I said it that way. πŸ˜€
But I really meant to zoom and pan when the camcorder is on a tripod. The zoom slider is really awkward to use when mounted, in my opinion.
In a hand though, it’s great, and I do agree that the shots you described are pretty effective to keep the video very interesting (much more than just a camera on a tripod).

Hey Armand,

For editing, Final Cut Express on a Mac would work great. I think Adobe Elements on Windows would handle this pretty well, but I would wait for some Windows guys to answer.
