    This is odd, It only does it when the mic (Zoom H1N) is too close. Failed to turn on the mic (on it's own tripod) on one clip and no bounce. So tried it with the mic Handheld but two feet above and no bounce. Same indoors on test too, move the mic too close and the bounce is back. Here is a clip with the same mic, but 2-3ft above the camcorder, no bounce.

    Thanks, I've had this camera since they were introduced and have never been happy with it. As it is clearly on it's way out, I've found out how to turn it into an NTSC 60fps unit, so it at least matches all modern monitors and mobile phones. I even now tack a variable ND Filter to it and do the whole twice the frame rate thing for shutter speed. The bounce is still there but not so obvious in 60fps, but the footage looks more solid, still not as good as it's competitors. I'll probably pick...

But the second clip is mounted on a more solid Table top style tripod also with the stabilisation off. But it still has that slight bounce. Camera is a Panasonic HC-V180 with nothing else attached. Audio is recorded separately on it's own stand. Any guesses as to what is causing the bounce? It looks like the...

    Can I reply to "do camcorders have a place in 2021". The answer is Yes, but I keep hearing Sony/Panasonic etc say the people have abandoned the traditional camcorders. In fact it is the opposite, the big 3 Manufacturers have abandoned the Consumers. Back in the days of 1080p camcorders many changed models and found they'd gone from a 25/30fps to a 50/60fps and noticed the more silky smooth playback on PC & TV. Come up to date with 4K camcorders and the big 3 have clearly decided we must...
