Need help with MagicPix on a Panasonic PV-GS90

by Xbox18000 / February 18, 2008 7:36 AM PST

Does the magicPix function on a Panny camera make it really laggy and blurry? Because whenever I switch on the MagicPix function the video shown and shot become overblurry and very laggy. Is this a malfunction or just how MagicPix works? Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks!

That's the way it works

The manual warns that when MagicPix is on, the capture device has to stay on 30 times longer per frame to pick up the extra light. This results in a staggered image, as though in stop motion. That's the trade off for being able to actually see anything.

its normal

what it does is it slows the shutter speed down, so it will be laggy for panning or moving objects

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
