Question about Panasonic PV-GS500 Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot shoot outdoors

Whenever I want to shoot something outdoors with this camera, the image turns out all white, unless I am looking at something very close up, and even then it's over-exposed. Granted, it's an overcast day (in Syracuse, NY), but why is it doing that? I can't find any setting to change the exposure on. I need to shoot today!!

Well most likely the white balance is set for indoors or dark. what you need to do is find out how to change the white balance on the camera and then it should be fine

Have a sony dcr sr 82. When looking through the


You absolutely must send in the unit for repair. This is nothing for a consumer to tackle(and some techs! lol) Really tho, either the circuitry is damaged or an adjustment was shifted. There are PRECISE electronic and mechanical settings all working in delicate concert to give you that crisp image--and steady one. Heat, shock, vibration, age, and moisture all work towards causing a malfunction. Send the unit in directly to a repair facility and *not* through a store--unless under warranty. There are substantial charges that a store tacks on to the bill you see--not the actual repair cost. Hope I was of some help!---Rick

Changing shooting size to 320x240 on jvc everio hard disk drive


The everio series uses image quality setting for resolution. The lowest setting is economy so try it in that setting. If the images is still to large then this means the everio can't shoot any lower so you would have to edit it. A quicker solution I think for You tube posting is get a low end camcorder the the flip or one that shoots the video on a media card. These are lower resolution cameras and run around a hundred.

White circles appear on the image. Why is that and what can I do?


When shooting with flash in a location where there are many suspended particles, such as in a dusty area or on a snowy day, the image may contain white circles as shown in the picture below. Why does this happen? If the flash fires when a suspended particle floats right in front of the lens, the reflection of the flash from the particle appears more intensely than that of the subject, as the particle is much closer to the lens than the subject. Therefore, the reflection of the flash turns out in the image and causes an effect such as that shown in the sample image above. The closer the lens and strobe are located, allowing suspended particles to be exposed to more light, the more frequently this effect can occur. How can I avoid this effect? Ideally, it is best to shoot in locations where there are very few suspended particles. If not, you can use following method to prevent this effect. a) Avoid using flash by lighting the area as much as possible. b) If your camera has a zoom function, shoot at a wide angle.
