Question about Canon MV6iMC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When l zoom in fully the picture gets brighter and flashes. Been on to Cannon helpline and they say that
"Please be advised that when you are using the camera zoomed into to the maximum amount (Including Digital Zoom) Then any slight movement of the camerawill be picked up and amplified massively on the screen due to the amount of magnification given by the zoom (400x at Max Digital Zoom).
Also each time it is moved, it will re-expose the image. As such, depending on the circumstances, it can be picking up one area which it thinks it needs to expose more and another area which it thinks it needs to expose less. In this situation, you will get the effect of the picture flickering birghter and darker."
Does this happen on everybodies MV6i or do l have a fault?
The picture quality at full digital zoom is not likely to be of the best - you may have difficulty distinguishing an elephant from City Hall. The reason for this (and it is not a fault) is that optical zoom uses the lens itself for magnification, whereas digital zoom uses in-camera software to interpolate pixels approximating to the colour and brightness of the surrounding pixels. This does not lead to optimum quality.

You have a CCD going faulty. It will probably fail altogether soon.

No its common I repair this model and it ok its like that on other models as well you could bring your camera to best buy and compare it with one of a compareble model to see the differences if any sometimes they are a little off.
