Are you bragging or complaining? <No offense meant, just joking with ya - LOL>

Seriously though, that can be a good or bad thing depending on what is blurred and what you want. If you mean that the primary subject is in focus and the background is soft, then many users would consider that good thing as one of the common complaints about miniDV cameras in general is excessive depth of field, making it very difficult to use selective focus creatively as one does with film. OTOH, if you mean that nothing is sharp in the frame, then that's generally not a good thing and we need to look further to pin down why it's happening. What is blurred and can you pin down anything that the situations have in common when you get the blurry images?

Moved from Open DV Discussion to the Canon XL1 / XL1S Watchdog forum.

Easy Recording mode on this camcorder *is* the factory default.
