    I've heard some horror stories about vertical smearing with the Sony
    DSR-PDX10 camcorder. Has any poster any direct experience of this please?

  2. You might like to have a look at the very simple tests I did -

    IMHO it's absolutely nothing to worry about and, in fact, can give some
    interesting effects

    Hi Stuart,
    that looks interesting. I've seen much worse than that. I was doing a city
    mainstreet at night and all the little dots of bright streetlights
    practicalle became bars or stripes almost as white as the light itself. It
    seems that it doesn't do it on still photos and it gets much worse with
    faster shutter speeds.

  4. All my stills on the test page are frame grabs. Maybe you could let me have some
    frame grabs of your sequence that could be added.

    However, it is horses for courses, no camera can do everything.

    Many years ago, my favourite lens for sharpness was a Zeiss zoom (on SR) but it
    was very susceptible to lens flare, far worse, IMO, than the then standard
    Angenieux so I had to light around that problem.

    My opinion still remains that the PDX10P is one of the best cameras within its
    functionality, size and price range.

    All the best
