    VX2100 tape blocked

    Thanks for your quick answer, and no it wasn't me who sent you an email. To be honest I was hoping I could do something on my own before considering sending you the cam, which would be quite expensive from France. Is there any things I can do without changing any parts ?
  2. Hey, Yesterday I was filming with my VX2100, and discovered that the "end search" button for playback wasn't working anymore. So I switched to VCR mode, and nothing was captured on the tape. Footages that were on the tape prior to yesterday were not playing, there was a greyish glitch with a few pixels of the footages. More important, I tried to change the tape, but it won't eject anymore. When I open the door, I can hear the motors trying to eject the tape deck but nothing happens... I know this is a quite common issue for VX. What are my options ? Thanks ! edit: Oh, and I forgot to mention that I have absolutely no error message on the camera

    XTREME VIG Overlay for any HD Camera

    The vig is not looking blurry enough to look legit in my opinion, but that's just a parameter to adjust... Nice work !
  4. Your footages are looking good in my opinion. Export settings is one thing, but there is also camera settings, light conditions, etc...

    vx1000 footage upscale to 720p

    I guess he is using a PAL VX shooting 50i so you can export 25p or 50p for a "smoother" look. And regarding the upscale topic, I usually set my timeline to the exact same setting that the source footages, so I don't have to render anything to playback. Then I export to 1478x1080 to keep the pixel aspect ratio. Or sometime I export to 1920x1080 with black bars...
  6. Thanks for taking the time to watch and reply, it's always good to have an external opinion to improve. Regarding the "dynamic" line filming you mentioned, I believe we (french people) are influenced by Romain Batard work, and it does not always look as good as what he is doing 😁. In the first line, it was more to avoid the switch no push quite boring rolling between the two tricks ahah. For the filming, as you said it's a homie thing, so I'm setting the camera and everyone is filming each other so sometime it's kind of experimental... I'm the first guy in the video by the way, so my part is all homie-filmed ! ahah Thanks for your comments, I will come with a better one next time for sure !

    where are you hosting your videos

    I suggest you to post your video on YouTube in private, you will receive an e-mail if there is any problem with music rights. Most of the time, it will just add a link under your video for people to buy the music, but no particular restrictions...
  8. Hey guys, since I learnt pretty much everything I know about filming with 3CCD on this forum, I'm glad to share this video with you. I made it for my local shop in Grenoble, France. This is my first full video so it would be nice to have feedbacks on filming, editing,... Thanks !

    I had a perfect vig, but I slammed with the camera, and now it is on the left...

    (HMC150) 720p Export Settings

    What's the difference between editing in a 1080p timeline and editing in the native resolution, then export to 1080p ?

    HD setups with footages

    Hey guys, I'm still using my VX2100 a lot, but I'm starting considering going HD. I haven't followed HD setups at all, and would love to see footages of different setup. I'm not interested in DSLR, camcorder only. Here are some HD videos I liked a lot, don't know with what they were filmed ? Thanks a lot !

    Post Your Setup!

    VX2100 + MK2
  14. Thanks for your quick answer, I think I'm just going to give up on that idea. I am actually using the original charger plugged to the camera, but I think maybe the internal battery are not handling recharge anymore...
  15. Hey guys, I have the "clock set" message on my VX2100 appearing each time I pull out the battery. I did some research and found that it might be the internal battery. I found the exploded views and drawings online. Do you guys know if I can replace the battery alone ? (not the whole PCB) Can I use one of these ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/sis.html?_itemId=271896883512&_nkw=NEW+Maxell+ML1220+3V+Rechargeable+button+battery+FOR+SONY+DCR+VX+2100&_trksid=p2047675.m4096.l9146
