Question about Panasonic NV-GS200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Green Hue on Screen

The camera has developed a green hue on the screen. This is not night vision, it just has a green hue on everything which is still there on playback. The camera was working fine and every now and then when I turn it on, maybe 1 time out of 10, it will be in normal mode when colours are as they should be. I have played with all sorts of modes and settings and cannot seem to get rid of it. Like i said, occasionally it will go away, but not because of a specific thing and it always comes back. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, it's great little camera but pretty useless as the moment!

Taking still pictures all show up with an orange hue

This could be because you have set the White Balance to Fluorescent. Set this to Auto and it should be fine.

Videoing or taking picutres at night

This camera is not designed for use in extremely low light. The sensor needs ample light to record a clear picture. You can compare this to using different speeds of film and needing to leave the shutter open for a longer time during night photography with still cameras. Unfortunately, there is no fix for this other than buying a light to use with the camera...unless it has an infrared setting (but then, everything would be green)
