XH A1 question...HELP!
Please let me start by saying "I'm not an expert" and depend heavily upon smart people to save me.

I just bought a used XH A1. I already own one so this will be my second cam on shoots. I have been trying to match up all the settings and believe I've been thorough as I examine and compare each menu page and setting between cameras. I started by resetting both cams to factory settings.

However, and I suspect it is something simple I keep overlooking, when I put the newly purchased camera in Manual Record mode I have some issues. The iris and zoom features have some sort of effect going on. When I adjust the rings the changes occur incrementally instead of smoothly. Also, when I pan, the image becomes blurred, has a tail and moves incrementally across the screen instead of fluidly. There's a setting or combination of settings that are hiding from me!

My original cam is a dream and I have been using the settings on it to compare to my new one. I can't figure what is different. Any ideas?

Hi Les, is the Noise Reduction setting (NR1) turned on? This can cause the problem described. And also check (Auto Shutter) is off.

Thanks. That worked.
