Recording under fluorescent lights

by Paschelke / February 9, 2009 1:09 AM PST

Most of our recordings are done in a gym setting under strong fluorescent lights. We had a sony handycam but got a flickering/slow motion effect, supposedly due to the lighting, on all disks created. We returned the camera. We are looking to buy a HD camcorder that will do well under fluorescent lights. Are there any suggestions out there?

Thank you,

My favorite cameras -- the Sanyo HD1000 (1080i) and and Sanyo HD1010
(1080P) -- I own both -- have an easy and quick setting for instant elimination of any flicker situation I've run into.

You may want to look at my web site to read about the HD1000.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
