Question about Cameras

1 Answer

We've got a church tv camera that records picture so that predominantly neon green and pink appear on the recordings. The neon almost looks like fire. What should we be looking at besides the normal efforts at color balance?

You leave out too much information. What kind of camera (CCTV, IR, BW/Color, handheld, web cam, etc). Name/Brand/Model ? What are you trying to do? Security? Film your service? Broadcast via internet? What kind of monitor are you using and how do you know it is a known good monitor?

Your information is too vague so I can only give you a vague, potential answer;

potential is high that the actual chip lense itself is at fault, potential fault within chroma/color circuitry or if it is an older camera, out of adjustment and if very old, tube is no longer viable.

Additional thoughts: EMI shield malfunction on the PCB (highly rare).

Panasonic DMR EH50. Picture is dominated by the colour pink. TV not affected.

Please check your Blue and Red component cables on both the recorder and your TV. One is probably loose.

Image has lines and pink in colour

This maybe two problems, the pink color hue in the picture and lines from lens shutter problems. Your LCD is still good. You have to replace motherboard and lens.

Hi all, I run the panasonic camcorder ag-dvx100b every Sunday for my Church to record our church sermons. We use the camcorder also to project the pastor on a large screen during service. Anyway, I have...

I have looked at the video.There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the camcorder.The problem is more from the angle at which you are recording.You seem to be a little offset from center,probably because there are seats in the center and you do not want or cannot record from there so that people may sit in the middle or behind that without an obstructed view.Are you recording from as close to the seats as possible,meaning in the aisle?Try recording from the center,even if it's in a seating area.You should try experimenting a little.Have someone stand towards the center,like in the video.Move your camera around to different areas and see where you can get the best results from.Move to the furthest area back,and see how close you can zoom in to get a good picture.Then work inwards from there.If you do not have a full capacity crowd,they will understand even if you are in the seating area taking video.It should not block a whole lot of seat views.If you are quite full,just move farther back.TAKE NOTES when you are attempting to get a good picture.Seat,row,location,etc.Then you have a quick reference to adjust to if necessary.Even if all 3 legs of the tripod are not able to extend fully if shooting from a seat row,the 3rd leg should be able to shorten up to put on the seat,but you may have to weight the seat down if they are the ones which automatically pop up.If the seats have a gap between the back of the seat and the upright part,you will probably have to rig something to hold the leg in place.Using the tripod in the seat,the best idea would be to push the 3rd leg which is on the seat up against the back edge and wedge it there somehow.That would give you the best stability. gmccarthy 86 hotmail If you reply,please write something in subj line so I know it's a good email because it will show up in my junk at first.Also,a note for the speaker.When listening to public speaking,'filler' words like uh and um are VERY annoying to many who are listening.Have the speaker look at himself on video and practice not doing this.He is doing it quite a bit.Personally,that alone would have gotten me to walk out after a short time if I were at this particular link's sermon. Good luck,Greg

Sigma 35mm slr film (not digital) camera. Viewfinder turned pink

Look at the downloaded images recorded by the camera, if they are okay the fault lies in the LCD and ofteen the system board chip that tranlates a recorded image onto your LCD.

Camera Records w/wrong exposure-- pink & green overexposed effect

It could be that the CCD unit is going bad.  You should take into a camera shop to get a professional look at it.  Usually that type of taping is caused from a bad CCD.

Pictures are green and pink

looks like the CCD (image recording chip) has quit working. There is a lot of information regarding this phenomenon available at this link . The problem was widespread and affected almost all camera manufacturers. It does appear that most affected cameras are in the 3-5 year old range. The problem seems to have been rectified within the industry.

Black bars in the picture

For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.
