Lumix FS10 settings?

Rather than me reinventing the wheel, please can FS10/FS7 users let me know what settings work for them for digiscoping?

Thanks.

There aren't that many setting on the camera, but I tried the following and it seems OK. I've attached the FS10 to my Leica APO 62 using the SRB Griturn adapter which is really good.

Picture Size 4:3 12M
Sensitivity: ISO 100
White Balance AWB
AF Mode: 1 Area
Burst: On
Digital Zoom: Off
Colour Mode: Standard
Stabilizer: Off
AF Assyst Lamp: Off
Red-Eye Removal: Off
Exposure -1/3
Macro: AF Macro
Flash: Off

I'll play around with ISO, AF Macro/Macro Zoom/Macro Off and exposure settings and see if it makes much difference.

Large files when making videos with Panasonic FS10

When I make a video (film) with my FS10, its rather large. When I make a video of 5 minutes it becomes about 700Mb. Can it less?

The extension is .MOV , is there a possibility for another extension? Otherwise you have to use apple quicktime.

I don't do videos but you could look at this thread and try asking the person who started that post - Paradoks1984
