Re: Taking pictures with handycam

I have heard that that they are great for recording video but if you want great pic's you should use your digital camera. before buying mine they told me that it wouldn't take great still pic's because of the megapixels or something.

Hard drive is full

The memory stick can only be used for taking still pictures (which are of terrible quality). Your only option for creating space on your hard drive is to delete items. Before that you can upload videos to your computer and/or burn them on DVDs. Sony actuallly has a DVD burner called DVDirect where you can burn DVDs without the use of a computer. I hope this helps.

Picture taking.

are you using a memory stick or card? if not, it must be the problem. try to have a memory card in that case, so that you can take a picture from your camcorder. as far as i know, you can only take pictures from a camcorder using memory card or stick. hope that helps!

Thanx a ton

perhaps its memory problem in your computer, caused by one of these:
- low RAM (use higher RAM)
- too much applications in start up (close unnecessary applications)
- too high quality setting in image mixer movie capture setting (set at normal or low quality)

or you could try to use option "EZ Video CD" for easy & quick VCD creation in image mixer, but it gives you lower movie quality

Still Pictures

the still pictures are actually single frame MPEG movies with 7 seconds of audio. You should capture them the same way you get movies off the tape into the PC and just capture the frame.

Blurry still pictures

I had the same problem and found this forum.  In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom!  back on to focused pictures.  Hallelujah.
