      Hello,

      I have my camcorder on a tripod and want to video record an instructor doing a computer demonstration on a PC. The PC is connected to the Sony 52″ LCD.

      The problem I’m experiencieng has to do with the refresh rate of the TV versus the capture rate for the camera. The resulting video captures flicker, thereby jeopardizing the quality of the recorded image.

      Can anybody please offer any suggestions on how I can eliminate this flicker?

      Thanks,

      Andrew

      set your shutter speed to 1/30 sec or less…. (slow color modein the menu or manual shutter speed)

      Hi Don thanks very much for your reply.

      I’m working with a digital HD camcorder. I don’t think shutter speed is an option on a camcorder, no?

      Regards,

      Andrew
