I have a question; are you shooting in LP mode? It should say on your monitor. You can get more recording time in LP, that's because the tape runs slower but that in turn demands more compression. Your image will come out grainy, fuzzy or even posterized. I've seen background images (stationary ones) come out gittery due to the hand-held camera. It's not that obvious if your eye is on the action but once you notice it, it's hard to keep your eyes off it. If you want the best possible image, shoot in SP only. Hope this solves your problem. Good luck.
