Friday April 19, 2008 Day 1 with the Canon XH-A1:
Off to a scary start. No time to read the manual I’m flying by the seat of my pants. Keep it simple. Shooting on AUTO mode (A) Auto focus is a little slow and doesn’t seem to snap in all the time.
Dope, figured out what the third ring was> Iris.
OK Premiere 4 what’s up with the new menu. Help, I’m on deadline. I don’t have time to figure out how to export to Flash. SHARE? Give me a break.
Ok, after a very long frustrating day, I get to go home and cry in my beer. My beautiful wife prepares a great dinner and I kick back to relax. Yeah right! Esther falls asleep on the sofa so I whip out the manual. Hey guess what, you can stills with a Canon flash in any mode but MANUAL. What? @%+^#*%
11PM, and I have to work the weekend. I sneak into my cubbyhole and begin to actually carefully begin to read the manual after a 12-hour day. Custom function #80 >> shooting stills to the card while in tape mode. Great, but wait. The custom function grid only goes up to 20. &%#@ !!!!!
Go to bed, Saturday is going to be a very long day.
