View Full Version : Night Mode Pink Ghost
At first when I saw this phenomena I figured it was the light from the moon reflecting internally (I was shooting footage of stars), but now that I can re-create this indoors in total darkness I wonder if its a quirk of the HV20 optics?
In the picture sample, left to right, is zoom being increased.. The pink image appears around 75% for a little while and once you hit ~90% it vanishes/decreases...
Anyone able to reproduce this on their HV20?

You have ghosts. j/k (I think, maybe, you'd better check just to be safe)
What mode are you using when you do this or doesn't it matter?
It only seems to occur in night mode.
Being that it occurs in total darkness I'm wondering where the light is coming from? Perhaps its electromagnetic from the OIS system interfering with the cmos elements?... I shall try to replicate the problem with another HV20 where I bought my camera tomorrow - I'm sure they won't mind me 'using it' for a moment.
Incidentally while I was operating in near total darkness I thought it would have been great if Canon had included a small white led inside the tape compartment that would turn on when you open the tape compartment so you can see what your doing when filming in the dark.
