Can I take clear good pictures of a full moon on a clear night?

You're going to face two separate problems here.

One, the moon occupies a rather small portion of the night sky. Even fully zoomed in, the moon is going to be not much more than a bright spot in the sky.

Two, the camera is designed to assume that almost every scene is an average brightness. Given how much of the scene is a black sky, the camera will attempt to render the sky as average (what photographers call a "medium gray"). This will result in a picture with a gray sky and a featureless white blob for the moon.

If you think about it, the full moon is nothing more than a really big rock under a midday sun. Thus what you want is the same exposure as when taking a picture on a clear sunny day. Unfortunately the camera is going to be fooled by all that dark sky and try to compensate for it. What you really need is to be able to bypass the camera's light meter and set the proper exposure yourself. The C195, unlike more sophisticated cameras, doesn't allow you to do so. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

Can;t get camcoder to stay on long enough to record

Please use high drains, long stamina, and high amperage battery on your camcoder. Set your back light to minimum time that available on your camera. Prevent to use flash on clear and sunny area.

according to the manual guide, you cannot use another recharging, only the recharge that came with the camera, because you can get a problem on the screen.

you have to use this ADAPTER>

How to reduce iris when shooting outdoors

on the left hand side of the camera is a wheel and button located right before the LCD screen and after the focus selctor. If you roll the wheel to the + you will open the iris - close the iris.. there is also a button that says 'iris' above it, what that does is auto pinpoints the light setting for you..

you could also play with the shutter speed and gain located in the back of the camera next to the battery if you have extremely dark situations or even extremely light.

Whiteout in viewfinder, LCD and playback when filming outdoors

You should check and see if your night shot is on. That would definitely make the screen go completely whit outside but work fine inside. Hope that helps.
