Jack you posted in the wrong category. If you post in Canon video you'll have better luck or try the DVX User forums for that model:

SOURCE: Keep on changing the focus during video capture

I was having the same problem... I went to the Sony support site (www.iq.sony.com) and found a solution-- (pasted below) I changed the focus setting in the movie mode to "infinity" rather than "multi AF", and now the video has stopped the focus phasing! Wahoo!
HOW TO:
Once in movie mode (the filmstrip symbol), press the "menu" button on the back of the camera, press to the right until you find "Focus".  Scroll up and set the focus to the infinity symbol and press the center button to select. pres menu to exit and strat filming!

FROM SONY'S WEBSITE:

Knowledge Article  C381853
Video taken with the still camera is out of focus.
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot video focus. IMPORTANT: if additional model specific information is needed to perform these functions, refer to the operating instructions supplied with your camera for more information.

  1. Increase the camera shutter speed.
  2. Change the focus setting to M AF.

SOURCE: When I tape a video

The Kodak EasyShare C613 does not have a mic. It is a camera that does video clips. No sound.

Either get a better camera or make do without.

You need to use free video player VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

I have a VPW8OU vIDEO CAM CORDER. i AM WONDERING if I can play the tape onto my pc somehow


Tape video recorders are unfortunately old technology. Video sent to a tape is not a fully digital file in the sense that it is not read by computers and has to be captured when you play it back into the computer and turned into a video file. Unless you are savvy with computer connections and software requirements and are able to connect up the camcorder so that it is recognised by the computer AND capture software, the easiest way might be to get someone to put the tapes down onto a dvd for you. Many retailers advertise this service.

Unit does not record. The counter & LCD screen are on. The motor is driving the tape. When played back there is nothing on the screen. There is nothing on the viewfinder either.


Tape heads may be dirty; run a cleaning tape through as per the instructions. If the tape heads are damaged/worn-out then the drum will need replacing.

MacBook Pro/FCE does not capture video from XH A1 any more. Message: Cannot initialize HDV deck-please connect camera.


Play the tape on the camera before connecting it to the mac and loading up the software. You could always see if iMovie is giving the same error message too... This usually fixes the problem for me and usually arises when switching between SD and HD on the camera.

Please help me...When I connect my canon xh a1 to FCP 6.0 it says Unable to Initialize Capture Device Device is not connected or the capture preset is not setup correctly. You may still log offline...


Try playing the tape before connecting up to the mac with the firewire and before loading FCP up. Usually fixes it for me when using either iMovie to import or FCP

When I capture HDV footage from my XH A1 to Final Cut Pro 5, the footage is out of sync. The video is playing like in 110%, or something like that. The original footage is in 24f mode. It doesnt happen in...


Make sure the properties for the project you start after the ingest match the frame rate you used to record. Reads like 29.97 speed setting looking at images recorded at 24f.

Get Final Cut Pro 5.04 to communicate with my XH A1


Many HDV cameras and decks are able to play and record DV as well as the higher-resolution HDV format. Additionally, many of these HDV devices will attempt to automatically change their settings to match the format of the tape that it's playing. Here are some tips for using these types of devices with Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
Tip: Make explicit settings on your HDV device. Instead of using an "Auto" setting, make your own settings on your HDV device to keep the communication going between it and Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express. This also helps Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express keep things running smoothly with HDV devices that handle both DV-NTSC and DV-PAL.
For example, say you're using an HDV deck to capture footage from a tape that was recorded as DV-NTSC. Before capturing in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, make sure that you set the deck to DV mode specifically—don't rely on Auto mode. With some devices, you may need to disconnect it from FireWire to change the mode.
For a common capture workflow, this sequence of steps can provide the best results:
  1. Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express if it's open.
  2. Insert your tape into your HDV deck or camcorder.
  3. Use the device's menus to set it to match the format that's recorded on the tape.
  4. Connect your HDV device to your computer with a FireWire cable.
  5. Open Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  6. Choose an Easy Setup for DV or HDV (whichever matches the format recorded on your tape).
  7. Proceed to Log and Capture.
Tip: Quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before changing modes. It's generally a good idea to quit Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express before you change the mode on your device from DV to HDV, or from HDV to DV, and then re-open the application again.
Tip: Use an Easy Setup to play back non-default HDV format footage on your HDV device. You can use Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express to make your HDV device play back footage in its non-default HDV format. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i50. Or perhaps you have a 1808i50 HDV device and you want to play back footage that was recorded as 1080i60. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Connect your camera to your computer.
  2. In Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express, choose an HDV preset Easy Setup that matches the format of the tape's footage (you don't need to restart Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express).
  3. Your device's LCD display should automatically display a switch to 60 or 50, indicating the type of media that's being played.
Playing back non-default DV format footage on your HDV device You can also use your HDV device to play back footage in its non-default DV format too. For example, maybe you have a 1080i60 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-PAL. Or maybe you have a 1080i50 HDV device and want to play back footage that was recorded as DV-NTSC. If so, follow these steps:
  1. Make sure that your device is in DV/DVCAM mode.
  2. Put your device into Play/Pause mode, then open the Log and Capture window in Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express.
  3. Make sure that your device's LCD (or other readout screen) displays the same format as your tape or Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express will misinterpret what type of device you have.
Tip: Avoid recording both HDV and DV formats on the same tape. Use separate tapes whenever you want to record in a different format. If you need to record over existing footage in a different format (for example, you have a tape with DV-PAL on it, but you want to record over it with HDV 1080i50), it's a good idea to black and code the tape, or completely record over the old footage with contiguous recording in the new format. If the tape contains even a second of, say, DV in the middle of an HDV tape (or vice versa), it could cause unexpected results later when you try to capture video from that tape.
For more information, see HD and Broadcast Formats and the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express User Manual, available under the Final Cut Pro / Final Cut Express Help menu
