Question about Sony DCR-SR65E HDD Camcorder
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.
