New ZR850 User needs Help

by ellandry / October 9, 2007 12:50 AM PDT

I just got my camera in and filmed my daughters soccer game yesterday. It was a very sunny and got day and very humid which is usual weather here in Louisiana. I converted to DVD using ulead studio 11 and converted 44 mins in HQ when I filmed it I set the camera to the sports setting. When I viewed the DVD the colors especially the grass kind of looked washed out or not as good as I would have though and sometimes when I would use the full optical zoom not digital the people looked a little fuzzy or not in total focus. Could this be because of the very bright sun that was always right above me or maybe the sports setting? Thanks

Also should I have just used easy mode instead of the "Sports" setting?

Also should the software image stabilization be on or off usually?
