Daedelus vs. Powershot SD780

Posted by Scott

I just got home from Portland after playing the Emrg-n-See festival on Sunday night. Thanks to everyone who made it out, I had a great time playing and the energy was amazing. I had the honor of sharing the stage with two artists I have a lot of respect for: Flying Lotus and Daedelus. Luckily I brought my little Canon SD780 Elf and in between setting up my gear backstage, I was able to catch a little bit of Daedelus’ set on video (Sorry they’re so short, time was really tight).

The SD780 really is amazing for it’s size; it cranks out HD and takes some great still shots too. If course, it’s not the greatest in low light situations so take the above examples with a grain of salt. I will post some daylight stuff this week that show it’s real capabilities.

These are great! I have been having a lot of trouble embedding videos from vimeo on my blog… do you have any suggestions? Sorry for such a “newbie” question, maybe some of the commenters can answer my question.

I love my SD780. Takes really nice photos, though I am also disappointed in its low-light abilities (especially since it has a 3200 ISO setting). I use the video all the time, which I didn’t expect I would. I probably use the function more than anything else, actually.

Scott, did Jogger play at that festival? Have you ever listened to Jogger? They’re good friends with Daedelus and have a split EP. Check them out, they’re good.

Love the form factor of the SD780 and the fact that it does HD video. I think they would have been smart to put in fewer megapixels in this form factor and subsequently less noisy shots… but we all know to the consumer, a high mexapixel count sells :/

Needless to say, I have keep pegged on ISO80 and adjust accordingly… sometimes on my mini tripod when I remember to take it.

Here’s an example of daytime footage (excuse the shot through the dirty windshield)
