VariCam's strange Thin Blue Line
Posted 04 February 2006 - 12:24 AM
Has any one else seen this?
The last time I checked a VariCam out, I discovered the problem at the house and they replaced the camera with a newer one (the "H" version), which didn't have the line. I suspect it may be a defect in the "F" version. Any thoughts?

It was suggested to me (from a panasonic technician) that when shooting in extremely hot conditions (especially when undercranking) we should place a cold pack on the top vents of the camera (obviously the type that does not have condensation dripping off. Something like runners wear around their necks). As weird as this sounds...it works. No problems since, even at 6fps in the Mississppi Delta with 95+ degree temperatures.
With all of that said, if you were experiencing this problem in a mild climate there is another underlying problem that I can't really help you with.
I hope this helps.
