I bought a GL2 a few months ago and it took awesome video whenI first used it.. I haven’t used the camera much may be 5 hours of video, but now the video seems blurry.. I have a 99 dollar video camera that is taking just as good video… Any advice as to what to look for ???
has the camera been dropped? Is the image clear on the camera? When was the last time you ran a tape head cleaner through it?
blurry how? like, out of focus?
I have never ran a tape cleaner through it.. i didn’t realize the short time of use i would have to..No it hasn’t been dropped ( it’s my baby 🙂 ).. The image seems out of focus. :-(.
I had a similar exprience a few days before Christmas with my GL2. With mine the picture has a few ‘pixels’ or white dots flashing here and there and when a person moves in front of the cam, the picture goes mosaic (sp?) or distorted. Looked at the book and it descibed similar problems and said to clean the heads. I’ve only ran it about 3 hours. What I suspect the problem was, the cam was in a very cool location in back of the Church in an unheated room. About ten minutes before shooting I grabbed the cam and put it on the tripod and began shooting. I suspect it was some sort of condensation causing the head to become dirty. I haven’t cleaned the heads and re-shot yet to know for sure. Anyone have a similar situation happen?
What is a good head cleaner any suggestions ?? (MiniDV)
