You can't ! you have to slow you footage afterwards.
Anyway, try to record with a slow speed shutter (1/30th of a second or less) to fluidify your images but if you want to slow down your footage, it's probably because the scene is "fast" and this doesn't could help you anyway !!!

Recording onto a mini dv tape from Mac computer Via firewire


I have successfully recorded to a mini Dv tape from my computer however I connected my PC to the VX2100 using the RCA inputs. I have an adapter that I purchased from best buy that provides the RCA input/output. If your able to connect that make sure to...

1. Turn you VX2100 to Play/Edit mode (not camera mode)
2. Insure the program on your mac has an external output otherwise you won't be able to record.
3. See if your video editing software (if your using one) has an option for record to tape or to camera. I use Vegas Studio and it has an option for that.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Playback intermittently plays in slow motion and in fast


Have you tried using a different DVD-RW? If you have used the same one over and over, it may have been corrupted by frequent use.

Has the camcorder done this since you bought it or is this a recent problem. If it is more recent it could be a problem with the read/write heads on the camera itself.

If this doesn't work, comment on the solution post and we can continue to trouble shoot.

Hope this helps!!!

I have a VX2100 and am interested to know what the best record settings are if you plan to do slow motion playback when editing.


There is no ONE setting for the three areas you stated, However, if you want the object/event/action seen in slow motion you can among other things: A) Over crank the recording speed during recording. B) Record at standard speed and slow the motion in editing. C) Add more ram and upgrade your NLE and compatible video card.
What ever you decide, make sure you have plenty of light facing the subject if possible.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.
