As a camcorder, the PlaySport is great. As a still camera, it’s fun but frustrating. There just aren’t enough controls, or rather, controls that one can control.
Exposure data taken from the EXIF information. Resized and a couple are cropped but no exposure adjustments.
This is an example of why the lack of user-controlled controls is frustrating. It’s kind of an interesting photo but the automatic white balance didn’t adjust for fluorescent light.
The PlaySport manual says exposure is “Auto”. I don’t think the lens can stop down since everything was at f2.8 and only the shutter speed and ISO were adjusted. I really like its video — I’m going to shoot next week’s intro with it.
