Can you please advise what video recording settings to use on my AG HMC 40PJU so that the videocamera will automatically adjust the light exposure entering the camera? I video a lot of stage plays and...

At the theatre prior to the performance, ask the lighting director to show you one of the brighter performance stage light configurations and allow you to set the camera's white-balance. (It's easier to deal with a little under-exposure in post production, than it is for over-exposure.) Then adjust the exposure accordingly during the performance.

Preparation/Planning: Either at home or in the theatre, if you practice setting the white balance and then adjusting the exposure for varying levels of light, with your camera connected to a video monitor, so you will see it more clearly in real time, it will help adjustments during filming the performance more fluid.

Also consider using a lens filter. Practice various combinations to see what suits different light levels and gels for best effects. When possible, if using a stand alone camera (not cabled into a control room set-up) I prefer using a video monitor for each camera person to give better ability to manage adjustments of camera settings as needed.

Strange silhouetting and a vertical strip

If A vertical strip appears on the screen when recording a dark background or the subject is blooming or silhouetting, you need to adjust the BLC. * The contrast between the subject and the background is too great for the camcorder to operate normally. * Make the background brighter to reduce the contrast or use the BLC function while you are recording in a brighter environment. BLC (Back light Compensation) * BLC works in CAMERA/M.REC mode.B * Back lighting exists when the subject is darker than the background: 1. The subject is in front of a window. 2. The person to be recorded is wearing white or shiny clothes and is placed against a bright background; the person?s face is too dark to distinguish his/her features. 3. The subject is outdoors and the background is overcast. 4. The light sources are too bright. 5. The subject is against a snowy background. 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Press the BLC button. Normal - BLC - Normal BLC enhances the subject. Notes: * When NITE PIX to set to ON, the BLC function does not work. * The BLC function will not operate in EASY mode.
