The MIT 305 is a small digital camcorder manufactured by Mitsuba. As with most small digital camcorders, the lens has a tiny aperture (opening) which doesnt gather a lot of light, so performance in dark environments are poor. The best you can do when shooting in a dark environment is to open the EXPOSURE to the highest setting. This lets in the greatest amount of light. Some camcorders have a special night recording feature that when selected, automatically increases the exposure while reducing the recording speed. The drawback is that the images develope an annonying flickering effect due to the slower speed. This poor ability to record in dim light seems to be a problem common to all tiny camcorders. I dont understand why no digital manufacturer wants to implement the infrared techique used by sony on their minidv tape camcorders that allows you to record in total darkness (0 lux.) If you need to record in pitch blackness, you may want to look at Sony camcorders with the "nightshot" feature. The smallest of these is the DCR-PC9.
Your best solution is to get a on camera light or a 3 point lighting system but that can get quite expensive. Another solution is making a couple of adjustments on the camera which allow more light into the camera. Please note this will not give you any kind of a night vision type of thing and you really can't "shoot in the dark" but you can shoot in low light, this process will allow more light into the CCD's producing a better image in low light. What you are going to do is: 1st make sure the ND Filter is on the OFF position. Next you are going to want to find the IRIS button it is located to the left of the LCD monitor. Next open the monitor and press the iris button and make sure it is set on manual. After doing this, turn the iris wheel (next to the iris button) all the way down you will see it go from F-(what ever the number is) to OPEN. That will open the iris all the way allowing the most light into the camera possible. If your image is still too dark then find the GAIN switch is is located on the same control panel as the iris button. You will see 3 selectors, L (Low); M(medium); and H (High). First switch it to medium and if it is still too dark, crank it down one more to High (please note that turning up the gain lowers resolution). This is really all you can do in low light with the Panasonic DVX100b. Hope this helped!
Low resolution on memory card recording, regardless of the storage capacity of the card is just the way it is. If you consult the zr600 users manual (p. 82 of my edition - PUB.DIM-734/1205Ni15.1, c2006) you can find that video recording to the memory card is limited to resolutions of either 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixels. These resolutions are pretty poor - disappointingly so seeing that one of the old computer monitor standards used to be 640 x 480 and that 1024 x 768 is common today. I was disappointed too.
click on 'Manuals/Specs & Warranty' in the Technical Support section, thn on the subsequent page, in option 2, enter DCR-DVD505 as the model number. This will take you to a page where you can download the operating guide.
Even i had faced the exact problem but it was due to low battery , hope u hav checked that ... of course the pic took in dark area arent brighter than other pics ... Try hard resetting the camera by taking the batteries out for few min ...
You will need all the pixels the camera can produce so set the camera for 1600 x 1200 Fine.
That should produce a good 4 x 6 print.
I can't help with auto/manual as I do not know what they do on that camera.
