Did I really do that?

I spent today at a wedding expo and was approached by the organisers to shoot some footage. Since my main camera was set up in the display I grabbed my HV30 & Merlin and offf I went. Now I just got the HV30 and haven't really played with it at all and I struggled to balence in on the Merlin but made do.

When I got home I checked the footage to find the date & time recorded in the bottom right hand corner (waits for laughing to subside).

what the hell do I do now?

You could overlay your logo/company name.

or made a 2.35 ratio out of it by cropping the top and bottom

I have an HV30 and have never had time and date stamped into my footage.

If that is the case with your footage then why not just drop it into a 720p timeline and adjust until it's gone.

lol, I hate slip-ups!!! The date/time is classic, muhaha! Sorry if it makes you feel any better even the pro's screw up every now and again. You're going to have to crop and if they ask you why just say it looks more cinematic that way. I forgot to press the record button twice last week, that's even worse! I got nothing to work with!

Virtualdub has some filter to remove this, it is not perfect, but with an additional logo, it should be ok

...... yes allright - you'll have to forgive a tired old man - I was buggered last night and when I read your post this morning I thought I'd check - Gee I plugged the camera into the HDMI port straight into the monitor ... and no it's not recorded on tape (but there is some really nice models in lingerie on the catwalk - I didn't even notice that last night).

(slinks away embarrased about not checking that before he posted but secretely pleased that he didn't stuff up the footage.. cue sounds of snoring)

Great!

correct me if I'm wrong but the new DV cameras don't have any option of recording the timestamp like they did in good ol' V8 and VHS.

Allright - I grabbed couple of frames - I'm not doing anything with the footage till they talk money.

I saved the best for last - a real hottie
