I have a ZR960, I am using it for my video tour business, the pictuer is not as sharp when I run it through my editing system(pinnacle 10) is this due to the camera or my editing system?
I have a ZR900 and the resulting video is quite sharp. Not sure what you mean exactly by “run through your editing system” but that should not make a difference.
Here are some possible causes.
1) your video might be slightly out of focus and this is not so noticeable on the small camera display but becomes more visible on the computer monitor
2) you have output your video to DVD which by nature has lower resolution than the original video.
