When I got home there was nothing on the tape for the first 8 mins and the timecode also started at 2:08:00:00 as At the start of the tape I set the timecode to 2 hours and recorded 30 secs of bars and tone. I feel that the camera thought it was recording and continued to count timecode and it wasn't until I reset the camera by turning it off and changing the battery that it actually started working correctly. This camera has had the A upgrade and only has 45 hours on it. I only use the JVC HD Pro tapes. I have 2 of these cameras but I can never trust this camera until I know for sure what happened.
So I really appreciate this input Thanks
