Hi guys



Been using my HD700 for a few weeks now, and all is well! However, last night I was filming some outdoor scenes at a party, and noticed that purple vertical bars appeared in the picture under the outdoor lights - they stayed under the lights when I panned around & have been captured in the recording.

I tried indoors today (pretty dark day) & sure enough it has the same problem with the lights indoors.

I'm worried the camera is faulty! Does anyone have the problem, or can give me any advice?



Thanks!



Dale

Do not wory it is the CCD sensor, CMos will not do the Smear.

it is like a star trek beam it can also go horizontal as well.

Different lights will produce this,

1 you may see these lights on the LCD screen and they will not come out on the video.

2 you may not see them on there and they will come out

and vice a verca.

all is Normal

they say Evadjustment or ISO adjustment is needed. manual tells you.

Hi



Thanks for the reply, I feel slightly better - at least my HD700 isn't broken!

Could you provide a bit more detail on your answer? So you're saying a cmos sensor wouldn't produce these issues, and a ccd will produce them?

I've read the manual twice & can't find the settings to reduce the lines, does anyone have any pointers?



Thanks!

There have been a few threads around the forums on this issue. Check out this article on the difference between CMOS and CCD sensors, especially the part relating to "smear:"

Smear, is a CCD light issue. it is caused by light, to the sensor.around 100 will offer variations of filmig

pg 191 why do virtical stripes appear? answe if a bright subject is shot in the video clip recording mode, virtical stripes may apear on monitor or in image

action not a malfunction

There are many scenerios of filming with light some of the tecniques are to change your angle, your range of filming (distance). camera lens hood.

CCD lens are supposed to be the better of Cmos lens, either way posable fixs would be Ev setting, ISO setting, hood on lens. manual setting

50/50 certain lights it happens more others it does not. you may see other cameras do this with a different color. I have a casio and does thesame thing
