Blue Gourami zoom test video!

    I was on a roll today playing with my old Sony Handycam DCR-SX85 that I forgot I bought. I pulled it out to use the directional LED screen for another picture I couldn't get for various reasons, opted to play with the settings a bit and test the near-object zoom/auto-focus abilities. My blues seemed interested so I went with them! :)

    While I've never been fond of the video quality, it's actually not bad this go around! The video starts at 0% zoom and at it's max, is at 50% zoom with good focus with the camera being held about 2-4 inches from the tank glass. AND It's not too nasty given my shakey hand issues. Enjoy!

    Disclaimer: As mentioned, this is a zoom/focus test, so it goes out of focus a few times and takes about 5+ seconds to clear up as I was hoping it would fix the problem itself :p
