Question about Sony DCR-SR65E HDD Camcorder

Advancing one frame at a time during playback on LCD screen

I'm wondering if you might know which Sony camcorders are able to play back a video on the LCD screenin a mode which allows the video to be advanced one frame at a time. Ihad no luck in finding this out in the several phone calls that I madeto Sony.

I have used this feature when analyzing golf swings with my SonyTRV-310 (which uses a 8-mm tape), but it wasstolen, and the insurance company replaced it with a DCR-SR65, whichdoes not allow the video to be advanced one frame at a timewhen it is viewed in the LCD screen of the camera. I've been told thatvideo recorded with a DCR-SR65 can be advanced one frame at a time ifit is loaded into a computer, but this is not adequate for me. I needto be a able to record a golf swing out on the driving range, or on thegolf course, and then review it, frame-by-frame, a few seconds later onthe LCD screen of the camera. I was wondering if there are any Sonycamcorders still in production which can do this.

I know that some Sony camcorders have a feature called Smooth SlowRecord which supposedly gets the camera to record 240 frames per second(rather than 60 frames per second) for about 3 seconds, resulting inextra good slow motion playback of the video. This would be great forgolf swings if it could record more like 6-8 seconds. Three seconds isnot adequate if you are recording your own swing (which is most oftenthe case) because, assuming you have your camera on a tripod behind thegolf mat at the driving range, after you hit the record button on thecamera's remote control, 3 seconds is not enough time to put the remotein your pocket, take your grip of the golf club and complete your swing(unless you rush through it in an abnormal way). Still though, ifcameras that have Smooth Slow Record have frame-by-frame playbackcapability on the LCD screen, I would be interested in them for thatreason alone. But I don't seem to be able to find out from anyone atSony or anywhere else if they, or any other Sony camcorders, do havethis capability.

Thanks in adavnce for any help you can offer.

If I were you I would feed the video from the camcorder into your computer via the dv link cable where you can edit it frame by frame using ulead or similar.

Sony CCD-TRV65. Blue screen during playback


Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks. Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!

Dropped frames during capture from camcorder


Firewire cards are quite cheap, under $20, replace the card. If you still have problems then it is most likely with the camcorder.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

No audio during playback


On my handycam you have to hit the Volume + button while playing back. Everytime you playback it starts volume at zero and you have to volume up to hear anytime you playback.

Playback


That's dirty video head! Try to playback new tape for five minutes, do it for 2 to 3 times, this will serve as your videohead cleaner. eject then reinsert then playback, eject again for at least 3 to five times. most camera has a built in videohead cleaner that activates during eject, initial play and reinsert mode. you can even try to play the whole blank tape! thats 1 to 2 hours of playback! If the problem is still there after doing those things, you need pro fix then.

Not recording clear.


Hello, please try to playback these new recordings on some other Camcorder. If you experience good picture on the borrowed Camcorder it means that the video head is (partly) damaged. In order to cure this the video head is to be replaced. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references. Best regards, Arpi
