Question about Panasonic PV-GS35 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

ZOOM PROBLEM I turn the camera on and the zoom is stuck at 20x. It will not become wider or tighter and it makes a clicking sound at any time the battery is on the device. After a few seconds on the main screen, the screen becomes blue and asks me to reset the camera. This process repeats over and over again.

Try plugging it into direct AC. The battery (a loose connection? low power?) seemed to cause my camcorder to reset indefinitely.

Picture shakes when I zoom

I don't know how you can easily tell the spec for the anti-shake is working on your camera. There is a specific specification for how much it can compensate. There is a factory spec that specifies that with a specific lens magnification ratio, the camera can be moved a specific number of arc-seconds and display within a specific amount of movement error. At home it would be impossible to do a technical evaluation of this feature.

What you can do as a user is to read the instruction manual about the option and see how to make sure that it is turned on in the camera's menu section. It is possible that your model may not have the feature. This you have to check in the spec sheet that came with the camera.

When the anti-shake is turned on, you should see the picture appear to be more stable than when it is turned off. With high zoom settings, it will be less stable looking than with wider angles of zoom. It does have its limitations.

Professional photographers normally don't like the anti-shake feature for shooting videos. For still pictures it is a good feature if you want this type of performance. This is because with moving video taping when the camera is being panned in small motions, the smoothness of the pan is taken away. The stabilizer starts to work at the beginning of the pan and then it gives out in sort of stepping actions. This can create a sort of jerking type of pan motion in the pictures.

Problem with focusing

sounds as though the focus motor worm gear is binding up. I have ,at times been able to take this assebly off the zoom lens ,oil it and reinstall it. very very light amout of floil, a very thin oil. Also the zoom motors worm gear binding will cause this problem, sometimes one of these motor/worm gear assemblies will have to be replaced.

Zoom is stuck

Just check the DC power supply flowing to the Lens block control. Some times the SMD fuse blows off and power may not reach the lens block motor.
