Problems playing back dvcam
on Aug 12, 2009 at 12:01:53 pm

I wanted to start logging a job which was shot on Sony DVCAM, Digital Master Mini DV tape.

However the tapes aren't playing, the camera seems to register the timecode but nothing shows up.

The tapes are definitely not blank, my other mini dv tapes play fine.

Is this a problem with the HVX 200? or am I missing a setting?

many thanks

The HVX does not support DVCAM. There is a difference between MiniDV and DVCAM. You will need a SONY deck/Camera (PD 150/170) to capture from.
