Question about Sony Video Cameras

Open Question

Sony MHS-PM5 - When the camera is panned at a moderate speed the picture jitters badly. It is not CMOS "wobble".It will play smoothly when played using the Sony Picture Motion Browser software. So if I give a video to someone else or post it, it jitters. Other H.264 videos, for example from Samsung HMX-U10 play smoothly on different players eg: VLC. So it it is not a problem with my computer specifications. Thank you for your help.

CCD or CMOS senser better ?

Depends on what you want. The Professional mid frame camera's all used to have the CCD sensor, because they most of the time were used in studio environment. The ISO of the sensors is low, but with enough light there is o problem. But now you see the CMOS sensors are so good, the mid frame cameras now move to the CMOS. CCD is good till 100 ISO. CMOS now can work at 1600 and 3200 ISO and still give superb quality.
So for speed (Canon 1D xx and Nikon D4S) they use CMOS and shoot brilliant pictures even in bad light conditions. When you have time (in a studio) and enough light use CCD like Phase One and Hasselblad.
Goto to see what camera's give the sharpest pictures with the greatest dynamic range. You would think the Phase One with the biggest sensor, but till now it is the Nikon D810, Nikon D800E second and then the Sony A7R. position 8 is the first CCD a Phase one. In the top 10, 3 times Sony, 6 times Nikon, all CMOS and only one CCD from Phase one.

Hope these info will help you.

"Format error" with sony MHS-CM1 webbie, 16GB produo

There is a firmware update available for your Camcorder at this link Download and follow the site instructions for installing it. The high capacity memory stick PRO is probably beyond the current camera's capacity to recognize and the firmware update should fix it.

Sony hdr-cx7 image jitters when the cam gets hot

one fix is turning off steadyshot then try putting the camcorder upright(the lens pointing up) for few second until you see the video stabilize, then use as normal but the camcorder will jitter again if handle it roughly. This is just a workaround, i still dont know why it happens, need to send it for repair soon.
