Firstly with some thick cloth around it and with it switched on, give it a good bash with a rubber handled pair of pliers or something (looking from behind) on the right hand side corner near the mics.

the iris gets oil/grease from the zoom on it which makes the iris stick,

if your lucky a hard slap will free it but if not it will merely change its position and make the picture brighter or dimmer

An exfriend borrowed bmy dcr brought it back w./ camera not working. He took it to a dark event. He recorded inside and outside, using auto.


That filming in dark or light would not make a camera go wrong, worse thing he could have done with it is put the lens towards a very bright tungsten light messing about ( if he has ) the Iris would burn out, if this has happened you are looking at a few bob to repair.

How to reduce iris when shooting outdoors


on the left hand side of the camera is a wheel and button located right before the LCD screen and after the focus selctor. If you roll the wheel to the + you will open the iris - close the iris.. there is also a button that says 'iris' above it, what that does is auto pinpoints the light setting for you..

you could also play with the shutter speed and gain located in the back of the camera next to the battery if you have extremely dark situations or even extremely light.

How to use a panasonic DVX100B in the dark?


Your best solution is to get a on camera light or a 3 point lighting system but that can get quite expensive. Another solution is making a couple of adjustments on the camera which allow more light into the camera. Please note this will not give you any kind of a night vision type of thing and you really can't "shoot in the dark" but you can shoot in low light, this process will allow more light into the CCD's producing a better image in low light. What you are going to do is: 1st make sure the ND Filter is on the OFF position. Next you are going to want to find the IRIS button it is located to the left of the LCD monitor. Next open the monitor and press the iris button and make sure it is set on manual. After doing this, turn the iris wheel (next to the iris button) all the way down you will see it go from F-(what ever the number is) to OPEN. That will open the iris all the way allowing the most light into the camera possible. If your image is still too dark then find the GAIN switch is is located on the same control panel as the iris button. You will see 3 selectors, L (Low); M(medium); and H (High). First switch it to medium and if it is still too dark, crank it down one more to High (please note that turning up the gain lowers resolution). This is really all you can do in low light with the Panasonic DVX100b. Hope this helped!

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.

Sport mode settings


Sports photography requires two things: Long zoom, fast shutter speed, and lots of light. Hey! that's three. Ok. So three things.

With your S3IS, you need to use a fast shutter speed to freeze the action (pitchers' arms go pretty fast!) - I suggest trying at 1/500, then 1/1000 second settings. Your camera won't select that automatically, so set the dial to shutter priority, and select that shutter speed. Then, with that shutter speed, you'll likely need to adjust other facets of your exposure to capture enough light. Zoomed in, you'll have an aperture (f/stop) of f/3.5 - or higher (remember: for f/stop, higher numbers = smaller iris, lower number = wider open iris). With your fast shutter speed, you're now fighting for light, so you need the smallest f/stop number you can get - which will be f/2.7 if you're zoomed out, or f/3.5 if you're zoomed in. If at 1/500 shutter and f/3.5 you still have a dark photo, try bumping your ISO setting up to 200 or 400. If you choose 400 or higher you will have a grainy picture. And will need to use a software noise reduction to clean it up.

With the suggestions above, you'll likely not be blurry, but you may be dark. If this is on a bright sunny day, you'll be fine. If this is at a ball park under the lights you may have different results.

Hope this helps...

Overexposure on outdoors shots


i think it is a case of defective apparture system. the system controlling the change of apparture opening has been locked. the reason may be friction in the blade movement or defective flex pcb carring the signal to the apparture motor.
