–If you must zoom during a recording, treat it as a special effect and zoom slowly.
Exposure–Remember to shoot with the sun or the primary light source behind you.
–Keeping the range of contrast in your scene to a reasonable level is the easiest way to improve the picture quality.
–Pay special attention to objects in the LCD screen that appear very washed out or over exposed.
–Making a simple change in how the camera is aimed or by zooming in slightly, you may reduce contrast to a reasonable range.
Length of Recording
Many recordings are ruined by stopping the recording too soon and missing the best moment:–Always try for at least a 10 second recording.–When in doubt, let the recording continue longer.–It is much easier to edit unneeded material later.
