Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV27 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Image problem The camera lens appears to be letting in too much light or at least a portion of the lens appears to be. I have checked all settings (or at least I think that I have) and even did the "reset to factory settings" options--nothing seems to work. When you look at the image that you want to film in the LCD area, most of the upper portion of the image is obscured by an opaque white filmy screen. You also see this when you look through the viewfinder. We really do not have anyone local who is currently repairing cameras so if there is not an easy fix, this baby is headed for the scrap heap.

It appears to be a problem with the CCD sensor in some models and Sony is recalling those units for free repair until Sept 30 2008. Humidity or heat is affecting the CCD where a portion of the screen or the entire screen image is gone. Sound still will work. Check the sony site.

My camcorder will record sound but not vision any Ideas


Does the recording show a black image or no video signal? If the image is black, is the cover being left on the lens? Is the lens broken or something perhaps internally obstructing its view. If there isn't a video signal, and it reads as only an audio file than have you checked you've set the camcorder to the correct setting so the video camera portion is turned on?

Aperture setting


Inside the lens is an "iris" which allows you to adjust the effective diameter of the lens, and control how bright an image it casts on the film. This is controlled by the aperture ring.

Smaller number settings set a bigger hole in the iris and let more light in - allowing a shorter exposure time, but reducing your depth of field (so if you're focussed on an object at two metres, stuff at 1m or 4m might be blurred)

Larger number settings set a smaller hole and let less light in. This means longer exposures (and more risk of camera shake), but offers a better depth of field (so although you're focussed on something at 2m, objects much closer or further away are also more likely to appear shrp too.

Camera doesn't focus


There are many reasons why images can appear out of focus. strangely if you think about it it is not focusing per se like photographic cameras the focus is at infinity by default- from about 50cm - out So if the images appear out of focus these are some of the reasons shots taken in low light with a low ASA setting resulting in long exposure -thus camera shake. Focus hunting- there are various methods used but if the mechanism cannot 'lock' onto something the focus motor will 'hunt' Faulty zoom Optic Zoom mechanism. Inadvertently set to 'Macro' mode Grease on the lens Careful checking of the camera- its settings- with the manual is essential before declaring the camera faulty Don't forget the paper manual is a nodensed version of the full manual on the software disk.

Why do my Fun! Digital 320 pictures come out blurry?


Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following: * Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures. * Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion. * Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images. * Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues. * Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.

Images appear to be very noisy or grainy


When DIGITAL ZOOM is set to ON in the MODE MENU, the lens can zoom into the Digital Zoom portion of the zoom by pressing the zoom (T) button. When you see the zoom indicator on LCD enter the red portion (towards Tele), the image in the viewfinder will become closer. However, since the D-630 is using the digital portion of the zoom, the lens doesn't physically zoom, it takes the existing image and enlarges your image using an electronic program. This can result in a “noisy” or “grainy” look to the image. This is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM. The DIGITAL ZOOM can be turned OFF to prevent you from using this portion of the zoom. Locate DIGITAL ZOOM in the Mode Menu and set it to OFF.

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash


As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
