RED LINES ... possible overheating problem

I have owned my DCR vx1000 handycam for a while now and noticed that there has been red lines appearing in all my footage after 40 minutes to an hour after shooting and it puzzles me, i would like to sent out a message to all whom may have an interest in lending a helpin hand to possibly figuring out what could be the problem ? basically i can only shoot for about an hour and then the camera starts to overheat and the overall footage is destroyed by something malfuntioning inside the motor mechinisms inside the module itself so again help me im in need ... thank you cheers.....

    I too have this problem . . . I would shoot for a little bit and then the video in the viewfinder has changed. The grass is no longer green but magenta. Certain colors that are not green (ie blue or yellow or whatever) are now green. It seems to do it randomly. I guess it could be heat (outdoor temperature) but not sure.

Where can i get a sony vx1000 for around 5000 bucks in good condidtion


Is there a reason you want the vx1000? They have updated this model several times as this unit came out in 1995. I am sure you could find one for that price being as they aren't even worth that much anymore. You can purchase a much better more modern camera from sony for your 5000$. If you check out ebay there are a bunch of them you can get one for about 700$ give or take.

Capturing Footage with Camera


USB streaming does not work for Windows Vista. Use the firewire/ilink connection instead.

Downloading video's to computer with the dcr-trv8 handycam


You should be able to hook up through usb or firewire. If your computer has a firewire port on it you can but a firewire cable that works with your camera and then use windows movie maker to capture the video footage. You can then burn it to a dvd.

Tele Lens


Tried Sony? Most converters work well, but you need to find the diameter of the thread on the front of the lens.. then go from there. I use a Sony (Well, Leitz) on my handycam.. has a 37mm thread and gives the 35mm equivalent of an 800mm lens. Quite adequate for most surf footage shot from the beach.

It's probably not out of line. A one hour minDV holds about 13.5 gigs. AVI files need a LOT of space. Yes, it will be compressed before it goes to DVD, but compression (also called rendering) usually isn't done during the capture process. How much hard drive space do you have? You probably need more.
