I am very new to filming, so please do be gentle!
I do hope someone can help - I have borrowed a Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100e and have downloaded the manual, but, unfortunately, it doesn't cover my two issues.
I have set up a shot, framed it, and recorded. However, when I transferred the video to my PC Laptop (to Windows MovieMaker), the framing is completely out. Moviemaker is showing so much more of the shot than what I am seeing in my viewfinder, or on the screen viewfinder of the Handycam.
This is on the widescreen setting (as this is the setting I require for my film).
Is there a setting I have missed? The manual does not cover this.
Also - the handycam keeps turning itself off when in standby. Even when in the middle of zooming etc. I can't seem to locate the standby turnoff setting (and does it still turn off when doing something??)
