In checking the picture in my LCD of my Sony TRV 460 digital camcorder I notice that there is a black border at the top and bottom of the screen which reduces the size of the picture. When editing onto the SVHS tapes, the picture of people shows them elongated (El Greco type). This only happened with one video session. What happened and how can I get my video to normal size.
You have it in widescreen mode which would be stretched to fit the screen of a 16×9 tv. Somewhere in the menu you should be able to turn off widescreen mode.
