Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC101E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Still pictures are "Washed Out"

Hi, We've just come back from holiday and noticed that all the pics taken on the Sony Handycam DCR-PC109e are totally "washed out". I've tried resetting the camcorder by hitting the reset button, but the pictures still look like they're being taken through a pair of tights! Have we accidentally altered some of the settings, can anyone help us? As you've probably guessed, I'm a complete photographic novice. Kind regards Katie Rourke.

I have a sony handycam - dcr-pc109e. When viewing a tape, there are grey horizontal bars across th screen that have just appeared. I cannot seem to get rid of them. Any ideas please?

Gray horizontal lines appears when video heads in camera got dirty / clogged.
Use good quality video cleaner cassette to clean video heads, problem will resolve.

Taking pictures with handycam

I have heard that that they are great for recording video but if you want great pic's you should use your digital camera. before buying mine they told me that it wouldn't take great still pic's because of the megapixels or something.
