Has anyone experienced this ?

We have several of these cameras. Occasionally students are unable to review 1080i footage on the camera and it won't capture either. Images are visible in shuttle play. Are they somehow blundering into DVCAM or is there a camera fault ?

I've not come across this on mine. It's done everything I asked it to do without problem. I'd suspect them of fiddling with the menus; next time you get one reported, tell them to hand it back in the fault condition and explore to see what they've done.

Get my test cards document, and cards for 625, 525, 720 and 1080. Thanks to Gavin Gration for hosting them.

Also EBU Tech.3335 tells how to test cameras, and R.118 tells how to use the results.
