Hi sorry if this is a stupid question but ive never experienced this problem and need help big time. Well my friend borrowed a Sony PD150 from college to film a project and he gave me the tapes as he had to hand the camera back in but as soon as i played the footage through my camera it was all jerky and flashing up in the corner, 12 bit and 16:9. Does this mean the settings that the sony filmed the footage on cannot be played over the canon? Its extremly confusing as i wouldnt have thought this would be a problem, the boy tells me the camera is PAL and so i dont think as far as i know its anything to do with frame rate. Ive run it through fire wire on to the pc in capture but its still the same problem its jus the screen expands in ratio from wide screen to large. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated. The only thing i can think it may be is that the camera settings have been 16:9 ratio with 12-bit sound but i have changed the sound on the menu setting of the canon but it doesnt make a difference its just still completly jerky and un usable.
