I just tried to playback some footage captured on a Canon GL1 in frame mode on a Sony handycam and noticed that the audio would cut out and the videio apeared to flicker.

Has anyone else experienced this?

The Sony's just a little consumer camera but would other Sonys have the same prroblem?

Do I need to use a Canon for playback?

Thanks in advance!

I have had similar problems...a friend I collaborate with uses a crappy sony handicam to upload all his footage and most of the time stuff shot on my Canon XL-1 wouldn't playback straight...I would recommend using a canon to play it back with...I don't think it has anything to do with the mode that the footage was captured in...although I could be completely wrong...

Cheers,

John

Hi,

I would assume you're seeing deck alignment problems - this is what DVCAM is for.

You could try sending both cameras in for service and mentioning this issue, because strictly speaking, it should work. In reality, it sometimes (you don't come across the issue often) doesn't.
