Here's a frame grab from a short that I did in January or so with a Panasonic DVC-30
(3 1/4" chips.)

All the flares from the sun go green. It actually works for the video but I'm curious why it might go in that direction and I know lots of people on here have good understandings of
how the red, blue and green information is handled/divided/combined by different sensors and stocks.

Thanks.

Tim:

This happens with a JVC GR-HD1U HDV camcorder I have. I read somewhere that the CCD gets "overloaded" and produces this streak. With mine it is much more apparent and is usually a bright green, narrow vertical streak. Happens mostly in the daylight with the sun overhead a but I've seen it occur on internal shots when I'm using strong lighting as well. JVC aknowledges this as a defect and even offers a free replacement, but alas I've never sent it in.
