I use a canon 3ccd digital video camcorder XM1 PAL to record and Pinnacle Studio Ultimate to capture and edit Business lectures. Usually there is no problem with the level of light intensity as the camera compensates and if necessary I can adjust brightness and contrast using video effects.
However on the last occasion the speaker stood under a room spotlight and his face has come out as a white blur. The usual adjustments affect the whole frame.
Anybody know of a technique where I can just "crop" the speakers head only and adjust brightness?
