Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC28 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi. I'm from the Philippines. I have a problem with my Sony DSC-HC28 MiniDV Handycam. I bought it last June 2008. The probelm is when I zoom in, the focus is ok until I reach the end of the optical zoom. Then when it reaches the end of the optical zoom and is now on digital zoom, it cannot focus the images anymore and is always blurry. This is regardless whether the subject image is near (5 meters) or far (100 meters).
I already took it to the Sony Service Center here in Manila and after 2 weeks they notified me that the problem is already fixed. I asked them what happened and what they did. They just said that they only did a computerized adjustment of the lens. However, when I tested the handycam, it still has the same problem. They said that I could use and test it for a week and if the problem still persist, I could return it for repair and replacement of the lens since it is still under warranty (3 years warranty).
I would just like to ask our experts if the problem is indeed the lens or is it some other thing like the zoom mechanism?
Is it ok if the lens would be replaced? Will it correct the problem or will it worsen?
Thank you very much...
