    Hello!
    Why does a panoramic video (in an evening or inside a building, shot
    by Sony HC5E camcorder) look like the frame rate is about 10 fps? My
    11-year old JVC VHS-C camcorder never had this problem, the video was
    always fluid.
    Best regards,
    Dima

    Im sure the manual will tell you if you read it, but I guess its a low
    light mode and it probably is indicated on the screen

    No, it's not the low light mode. I do not enable it and it is not
    indicated on the screen.

    You said panoramic is that a special wide mode, if its new take it
    back, sony manuals are junk, and I found options even Sony support did
    not even know that are not in my manual, that I could shoot stills
    while taking video on an old unit. They have so much new stuff out its
    hard to know all the operating parameters on every model. Keep looking
    you will figure it out, but color slow shutter may be automatic and
    its on with Night Shot on mine

    Panoramic video means that you turn a camcorder around its axis during
    recording.
    The Color slow shutter mode does not turn automatically, but manually
    only.

    What?? If that is the actual function setting, it makes no sense at all to
    have such a setting. You could do the same thing with any video camera. Are
    you sure it is not a wide screen setting?

    What "function setting" do you mean?
    I meant panning shooting by a panoramic video.
    I use wide lens angle usually during panning.

    Oh, I understand what you mean now. Reading through this I thought you meant
    there was a panoramic setting. Now I understand you are using a wide angle
    lesnse and taking a panoramic shot.

    Apprently you are not the only one having problems with this camera.


    If you just bougth it return it and get another to see if it has the same
    problem.

    Hello!
    The Sony service says today that the camcorder is normal. The contact
    personel did not test the camcorder. The Sony service does not allow
    to contact technicians which tested the camcorder the days before.
    Sincerely.
