Tommy, that's progressive recording under video mode (30P). It does exhibit the jerky pan look and somewhat brighter image.
The PC330 seems to be pretty stripped down compared to the PC300. The PC330 is strictly interlaced in video.

Tommy, look again at the dvspot.com link you gave. The reviewer listed down the full menu selection of the PC330. Progressive Recording (on/off) is there.

Sure enough! I just checked the manual (p.27) and thats a feature I've never heard mentioned before for this particular cam.

Thanks as always Allan!

Too bad it can't be combined with the high quality 16:9 mode.

I'll verify this evening if 16:9 and progressive can be combined.

For the PC330 and other Sony camcorders this link is great for downloading manuals. Some of which are not available for download on the N.A. Sony website.

Allan, I got the info about 16:9 and progressive recording mode from page 27 of the PC330 manual.

I was just translating the russian link on the PC330 and it seems that the angle of view in 16:9 changes with correspondence to the optical zoom (1-10x).

http://www.videozona.net/camera/capaso/index.htm

There is a photo on the link that shows what is viewable in 16:9 at 1x, 3x, and 10x.

Here is the corresponding text translated to English:

Quote:
Final the estimation of the quality of wide-screen regime can be given after the analysis of resolution (sm.nizhe). When this survey was prepared for the publication, by owner Sony PC330E, interesting special feature was discovered. In the regime 16:9 width of the operated acreage of sequence decreased with an increase in the value of "zuma". The greatest effective area of matrix in the wide-screen regime corresponds to the value of zuma 1x, and with 10x width decreases to the minimum. Aleksey Popov conducted experiment and confirmed this fact:
and the photo
