Sony camcorder color problem

by abry / September 30, 2005 1:25 AM PDT


I have a Sony DCR-HC85 camcorder, which was kind of an expensive model when I bought it last year and I assume its quality should match its price. However, I found the video I shot with it always has a wash-out color, I mean, the color is not as vivid as the picture I took with my Sony digital camera, as a matter of fact, not even close. I adjusted white balance and everything else, did not help at all.

Is this normal for all camcorders or is this a problem only for my camcorder? Your experience and opinion will be greatly appreciated.

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?
