In addition to the 22X zoom and AVC-Intra codec, another one of my favorite features of Panasonic’s AG-HPX-250 is peaking.

Basically peaking is electronically “highlighting” the edges of your subject. My HPX-170 has peaking but nothing like the HPX250.

The best way to explain how it works is to show you. So here’s a little video I put together to show you how peaking works and the controls you have available to you for adjusting the amount of peaking.

And as always, shoot the ordinary and make it extraordinary!
