Reflections on Sony HDR AX2000

Do these problems sound familiar?

YouTube - Sony HDR AX2000, HXR-NX5 Steadyshot jitter-25mB.mpeg

YouTube - Sony HXR-NX5, HDR AX2000 unstable autofocus.MTS

YouTube - Sony HDR AX2000,HXR-NX5 full zoom image wobbel.mpeg

Are these common problems.
Or did I hit a wrong?

>>>Maybe rolling shutter, but seems too distinct and noticeable. I'm wondering if the image stabilization settings have anything to do with this. I've never seen this before on any HD/HDV camera that is as noticeable as your clip.

>>>A lot of HD/HDV cameras aren't too great with auto focus. Personally, I never use it as I find it unreliable and I cannot control the image focus as much as manual. The latter certainly takes a lot more work, but at least I know what to expect. Your video results are nothing new to what I've seen in the past.

>>>Rolling shutter could be to blame, but it seems very extreme in this instance. I've never seen an image just wobble all over the place like that; perhaps an image stabilization setting?

John are you recording from a tripod?

I ask because in the case with CMOS DSLR cameras if steadyshot is enabled on your lens and you're on a tripod, the camera is expecting movement. As such it will introduce camera shake, just like you posted of it's own.

Turning off steadyshot corrects this problem.

Now this isn't always the case, as some Canon lenses sense when a camera is on a tripod and don't activate steadyshot, so the image is fine.

I know that this is a video camera, but if you shot on a tripod using steadyshot, then try turning it off and see what happens.
