Default Sony HDR HC3

I have used this HD camcorder for some time with no issues, but recently it started to record the "zebra stripes" that are in the viewfinder to indicate areas of high reflectivity. Consequently the video is ruined. I can resolve the issue by changing to manual exposure, but the resulting video is of poor quality.
Anyone have any idea if this issue is resolvable or do I now have a dedicated indoor camcorder?

Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased that you dropped by.

Those zebra like stripes, generally, are caused by shooting direct a videeo directy into the sun. Try to avoid shooting directlyb into the sun, that should handle the problem.

Have a great weekend.
