Try a 3 chip color camcorder to see better color.
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.
