Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Looking at Lenses

I use my vx2100 to record dance recitals and stage performances. To see everyone on stage, I must shoot from the back of the balcony and zoomed all the way out. Is there a lense that would allow me to get closer, zoom in and still keep everyone in frame? Is a "wide angle lens" the solution I'm looking for?? Thanks for any help, suggestions or advise

Sony has a wide angle as does Kenko and Centery Optics, they screw onto the front filter rings.  I am not sure of the quality though. B&H has them.

Recording onto a mini dv tape from Mac computer Via firewire


I have successfully recorded to a mini Dv tape from my computer however I connected my PC to the VX2100 using the RCA inputs. I have an adapter that I purchased from best buy that provides the RCA input/output. If your able to connect that make sure to...

1. Turn you VX2100 to Play/Edit mode (not camera mode)
2. Insure the program on your mac has an external output otherwise you won't be able to record.
3. See if your video editing software (if your using one) has an option for record to tape or to camera. I use Vegas Studio and it has an option for that.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Settings for dance/on stage action shots with no flash and low li


If there isn't good lighting on the stage (nevermind the auditorium), your 18-135mm lens does not have enough light-gathering ability for action shots, especially when you zoom in for that close-up of your daughter. Even at the highest ISO speed setting, you would likely have shutter speeds longer than 1/30 second, too slow to avoid camera shake and certainly too slow to freeze action. While a dreamy motion blur can make a nice impressionistic effect, I'm sure you want to recognize your daughter.

Sorry to say that the only solution for low-light, no-flash shots is to spend money on a fast lens. Either that or sneak in beforehand and put high-wattage lamps in the stage lights. The best value is the Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens available new with full warranty at B&H Photo (bhphotovideo.com) for $134.95 with free shipping. This lens gets highest marks in every professional review, and it's a huge value at that price. Or, if price is no object, go for the 50mm f/1.4D at $350. These are both prime lenses, not zoom, so you will want to get there early so you can choose your seat for the best view close to the stage.

Dance Recital Pictures


try bring a tripod or monopod with you-you can than turn off the image stabilizer if doing this-this will allow the cameras shutter to stay open longer and take in more light. Things to try-turn flash off-use a high speed memory card-change iso and exposure values manuely-use a scene mode or put camera on a or p mode which is shutter or appeture priority and see what changes-must set up early and try different settings-try a external flash to boost your range
