Hi there, i work on a columbian documentary and the green ccd block seems to be damaged. Is there a way to crop the ccd out. I don't have any way to go to a rental house there.
Thanks for sugestions.

What kind of "damage"? Dead pixels? Misregistration?

I'm going to assume that your assumption is correct and something is infact wrong with the green CCD.

I've never tried it, but I guess you can lower the voltage going into the CCD, but I wouldn't recommend doing that, since you would only have a red and blue ccd and your picture would be extremely noisy, dark and missing a green channel, what I would recommend you do is send the camera back to either a rental house or to any company that can repair it. If you can't do either of those, then I'm sorry to say it, but youre poop out of luck.

Thanks, i didn't touch to much to the green ccd gain but i tweaked the red and blue plus i adjust with multy matrix phase and hue cause i get a strange color saturated look but after grading i have been lucky it matched well with the subject. That was a very special adventure to work with an handycaped hd900.
