Paragliding video shot on the DSC-HX50V

So, who needs a dedicated video cam when a compact camera is this good? I was very pleased by the results:

Thanks, that works albiet poorer quality (even at HD) so it's difficult to appreciate the SONY VIQ..
But yes, small dcams are getting more useful as video cams than the dedicated camcorders.
I'm even very happy with the Pentax MX-1 for short clips. The VIQ is excellent once you turn off sharpening and contrast in the picture setup.

I used to live in Bundeena years ago, I'm familiar with Stanwell Tops having driven along that road a number of times and seeing the hang gliders at the time (late 70's)
