Green Band HPX 500
Posted 14 February 2010 - 10:11 AM
It only appeared in 720 mode. When we switched to 1080i it disappeared.
it also moved as we changed frame rates.
At 48 fps it was the worst, widest.
At 32 fps it was smaller.
At 60 fps it was not present.
We detached all accessories and ran on battery, as well as "rebooted" the camera.
All to no avail.
Any ideas, thoughts? Thanks!

I've seen something similar to this before, and it turned out to be a bad connection with the camera to viewfinder. Had to rig the cable with a certain amount of tension against the body to remedy it before we got a replacement.

We had a Marshall on the camera and the 17" panasonic.
It wasn't an HMI or flouro kind of thing because it was a straight band right across the entire image.
It looked like the line you would get when shooting a crt on a film camera running at 29.97. Except fainter and wider.
I did think it was a shutter issue but changing the shutter didn't change it.
You know how it is when something goes wrong on a shoot! We probably weren't as scientific as possible.
When we found we could shoot at 60 fps and get a clean image we just went that route immediately.
I am guessing it's a processing or chip issue.

I was hoping it was a monitor issue but I think it was a chip issue!

Apparently it was a warranty fix on a known problem!
So still don't know what it was!

I think the exact problem is on the camera software.
yes u must take your cam (especialy if still under warranty for repair )
it never happen before , but i report the problem to panasonic asia pacific , cause maybe happen to our camera too
