This camera does not have a light what is on the front of the camera is a flash not a light. It is available when you are in photo mode but not in video mode.

Hie i have a sony ccd camera during the day it show good colour but at night it turns to black and white


I had one of these cameras myself, and yes in low-light it goes onto inferred and indeed this will be black and white, however if you but a lamp from a camera shop that pushes onto the Hot Shoe on top of camera the light will let you shoot in colore in dark conditions.

Does not record in doors or in low light. very dark display


It sounds like you may have the the camera in manual mode or that the Iris may be turned down. I am not sure if you model has an Iris control so make sure it is not in manual mode.

I am unable to record in the minimal light. ALL I see is an outline of a person or object. I have the MIT 305. Can somone help me?


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.

Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

I don't know how put the night light to recor in dark places


There is no night recording feature for the Samsung SC-DX103 model nor does it have a video light, I just purchased one from Circuit City on 12/8/08 and I might return it because being able to record in low light situations is a must have for camcorders.
