Hi, I am new to this forum and just bought the xacti hd700. I am have a slight problem with it. I also have a sdhc 8GB class 6 card in there. My problem is after i take the video and load it on the macbook pro and view it i get this horizontal line running from the bottom to top once in a while. Is sorta like a cut ot slpit image running up. Does anyone know what this is or how to fix it. I have tryed various resoloutions and seeting and it all has it.
Hi,

Hmm. What are you using to view; QuickTime, iMovie or FCE/FCP? On battery or AC? If on AC, try on battery and see. Sounds (wild guess) like you're getting some interference UNLESS the line is in the same place in the clip every time. Do you see the line on the HD700's LCD?

Not something I've seen or can duplicate so I'm just guessing.

My shot, a lot of the videos on my channel are also filmed with the cam apart from the poi one (all on various settings...).

Video quality aside,ive found the photos to be amazing, especially the super macro:

These shots are 100 times better than my HD700, and I've tried every setting change going.



Manybe I had a faulty camera all along. But then again, a lot of people have had the same problems as me. Could there be a faulty batch?



I'll upload some video to show you tonight.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I Purchased a brown one and now the Silver one, they ere both in perfect order. Amazon is Where I got mine and I am sure it was not Sanyo who shipped it out, but a 4th party? I'll never know, and I DO NOT have issues. the cam was held in hand and driving , not a good thing. the smear is normal on a CCD lens, My casio, My Ispan, not the Aiptek go or A-HD.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"I have only set the cam fro FullAuto to Manual, Due to vibration the Car will shake the cams Sensor and casue massive jumpiness Could have placed in seat for a perfect smooth shot and also placed a wide angle on, not at this time.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Only graininess was the FDR going under at the first Night shot, due to turning cam and hitting record too fast. that is quite Normal for filming, and the last dayshot , that is quite Normal as well

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"ADMIN Love the Footage and the links are to your gallary? great stuff. will check the rest out. Always nice to see the other half of the world

OK, heres some quick footage I have filmed. Please excuse the house, I'm doing it up! Also, the shaky footage. I was only trying to give you an idea of the quality.



I have filmed my boys in a brightly lit living room, with all auto settings and it came out rubbish.

I filmed a bit of my hallway, which has masses of natural daylight. At Auto (not shown on the video) it was rubbish. At ISO 800, it was better, but it needed to be3200 before I could notice any real difference.

The fourth video is filmed in my street at ISO 800. You can hardly see a thing.

Please notice the zoom noise too. Surely this can't be right?



http://www.vimeo.com/599749- This is my boys in a lit living room on auto ISO. Notice zoom noise too.



http://www.vimeo.com/599833- This is my bight hall at midday filmed at ISO 800.



http://www.vimeo.com/599896- This is the same hall filmed at ISO 3200.



http://www.vimeo.com/599953- This is my lit street at night at ISO 800. Notice zoom noise too.

Thank you first for taking thetimeplacing up your personal footage SIW.....

Night time shooting: are you set Normal Auto nothingelse no saphiere or clasic on Effects? The SD card is it a SD standardspeed general oneor SDHC higher speed card?

You have a internal zoom noise, and Wonder if the Firmware is old? or cam is older is it a VCP or other thre letter name?

Also depending on the Light you'll get video. mine was in a car driving ofcourse you'll get shots like that but I am Agreeing you got a defect, and I am sure you are not the only one

This is a quick video it just shows the same scenerio I am set on Auto normal, and no other setting.

Understand this depending on the light you'll get graininess if it is not smooth like mine try allowing the camera to focus I juststarted out on zoom 3x optical

Make sure you guys turn off ND (Neutral Density) if your videos are dark. This can be done by going to Exposure and set it to Manual. Now you should see ND on the screen and just press left/right to enable/disable it.

In full auto mode, ND is turned on automatically when the scene is too bright. When you switch to manual mode, the camera keeps the ND on and there's no indicator that it's on unless you change the exposure meter to manual.

I was complaining before on how all of my low/not so low light videos are horrible but after turning off ND the videos are so much better. So much better in fact that I have to lower the ISO to 50 sometimes because it was so bright at 200.

Cheers!

i was under the impression that all of these models suffered from recording internal zoom noise. I got 3 and all do have this issue. It isnt something you hear unless there is no background noise but if im talking and i zoom like the user above, you do hear the zoom. Are my units defective??? there isnt much time left on amazon exchange so i want to know what you guys think. I can post a sample but im yet to see a clip where someone zooms with no sound from the lens. thoughts...

and a big thanks to everyone in this forum as it is the only resource when it comes to these units. you all have been very helpful.
