Sony HDR-CX380 followup

Here are a few of my findings and thoughts, now that I've been using it for a few weeks, on the Sony HDR-CX380.
I find that digital technology is so wonderful! I can take all sorts of practice shots and I can just easily delete them! Fantastic!

Nova Launcher

Here's the first regular video I've made with my Sony HDR-CX380! What an improvement over the Kodak ZI8! I just set it up and recorded.
Anyway, this is Nova Launcher, one of the many replacement launchers you can get for your Android phone. So far, out of all that I've tried this is my favorite.
I can hide apps I don't want to see, show the number of missed messages in several apps, and I can increase the number of rows on the desktop to 5 rows.

Practicing with the Sony HDR-CX380

Today I was sitting in my backyard and was experimenting with my Sony HDR-CX380. I'm a firm believer in practicing to get used to new equipment so today I was exploring the camcorder.
I know my hands aren't that steady and some shots were done by hand, and they are ok, nothing spectacular. I have a tripod that I've used a lot with my still camera and it definitely doesn't move smoothly and it is hard to get it to hold in one spot. Again, I need more practice . . . a lot more!
Here are some of the highlights of my practicing today.

Sony HDR-CX380 camcorder

I've been upgraded to a Sony HDR-CX380 video camera! I'll start using it in place of my Kodak ZI8 camera more.
It's a nice camera with capability of recording 1080p. There's also 16GB of internal storage which you can expand by up to a 64GB SD card, which I have done.
It also has the capability of taking 8 megapixel still shots as well.
So far I've used it a little and at the end of the video will be a snipet showing a brief comparison with the Kodax ZI8.
Look for more videos on the Sony in the near future.
