Hi fellow experts...
I recently purchased the Gy-HD100U. I have the camera in the HD mode, 24P, output 1080i. I'm puzzled that the black bars top and bottom are on the tape, viewfinder, LCD & the output to the field monitor. If the settings are in the HD mode then I should have a full screen 16:9 picture with out the bars. Any suggestions. Thanks.

Are you outputting to 16x9 monitors? And have you checked their menu settings?

Hi david,

I can switch 4:3 & 16:9. There is no menu in the monitor.

Hi David,
I hooked my camera's output to a native 16:9 60" monitor plasma screen. No bars. The Sony monitor that I have must be native 4:3 with the 16:9 image inside it. I will have to read the manufactures instructions. Maybe there is a setting to make 16:9 image a native image within the 16:9 area. Thanks again David.
