My folks bought one of those Sony camcorders that write to mini dvds just before Christmas. Not sure about the model but it was about £500 from Jessops. Anyway, problem is I don't rate the picture quality. Seems like everything is very grey and washed out. Contrast is awful and only occasionally does the video look good. They are happy with it but I'm wondering if they bought a dud!
Comparing it to my 8 year old panasonic which cost about the same back then, it's not as good!
It's like it takes too much time to analyse the scene and give the right exposure.
Anyone else had problems with this? I just wanted to know if it is a well known Sony trait and they should take it back. When you spend 500 quid on a sony you expect good pictures!
