P72 movie mode probs

I have just bought a P72, partly because I heard everyone raving about its movie mode. However, I am finding that while the playback on the camera and thru the television is clear and bright, when I download the movie to the PC and use a movie player (Windows Media player, or the Sony Imaging one that came with the camera) the results are terrible. Orange tinged, blurry and VERY dark. What's going on ? what am I doing wrong ? Tks.

Re: P72 movie mode probs

It may be a problem with your codecs and/or filters. Try installing a different codecs pack.

Sony dsc-H1 won't switch off of movie mode


When you switch the camera from mode to mode, does it make the click noise to signify that the camera recognized that it changed modes? If not it could be that the switch itself has become unlogged from the switch. I know I had a older camera had this happen before. Try pushing down hard on the toggle wheel and seeing if it will snap back into place. Otherwise the switch inside the camera itself is probably broken, and if this is the case cheapest thing you can do is have Sony do warranty work on the camera. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SYCustomerCare?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1 Click repair and service under Technical Support. This will get the process started on the warranty work.

Please send a solution asap


I have no idea what the symbol is.

I suggest that you check that your memory stick is not locked, not full and is inserted properly into the camera.

Reset the camera (button under the connector flap, below the zoom buttons on the back of the camera)

The palm tree is a slow shutter "twilight" setting to capture low light levels. Try resetting all functions by turning on the camera then pushing the "reset" button - you'll find it next to the recharge/DC IN socket on the back. Push it with a toothpick or paper clip. If that doesn't correct it, it could be an aperture or shutter problem that's a job for a shop.

P72 face focus blurry background


Hl, I'm not sure what shooting options the P72 has. But, even in Auto you should be able to do this (Auto usually picks a wide aperture). The key is to fill the frame (at least 50%) with your subject. So zoom in and focus on the face and then while 1/2 pressing, zoom back out a little. Then fire away. You should get an in-focus subject and slight blurring of the BG. You have to experiment with this. If you fill the frame too much, you might get such a small depth of field that the subject's nose is in-focus but the eyes aren't.

Dsc-P72 picture quaility


The only thing you missed, unfortunately is the camera you should've bought. The p72 is riddled with problems. Noisy high ISO shots, colours too hot, Vignetting and downright poor quality pictures compared to cameras with less Megapixels. A lot of people swear by them but they are usually people who've never owned any other camera. Those color casts and tinted shots are very offputting to someone with more scope in Digital cameras. I'm not totally condemning the p72 but there are many, many cameras of the same format which leave it for dead. BMW

Hoary zone in my shot with dsc-p72


looks like there might be a spot or smudge on the lens. Try cleaning it even if you don't see anything. I had the same prob with my sister-in-laws' p72. All pictures in daylight had a glare. I told her to let me check it out and the first thing I saw was the lens was filthy. Hopefully this solves your problem.
