    He never even mentioned which camera he had Marc! You must be psychic! lol

    edit: just seen the word Sony in the signature. Possibly this was a clue?

    thanks for the tips mark and sorry to grave dig this thread but i need to know something..
    if i use a LANC remote with this camera (DCR-HC40) when using a bullet cam will it hit the right record button for me so as to record to tape? or does it default to the memory card record feature.
    thanks
