    The DVX200 is known for being a bit noisy in vlog unless you record in 4:2:2 with an external recorder. It can't do 4:2:2 to SD cards.

    Per Barry's previous comment.....if you see STD the camera is in Auto-Iris. To get the smallest DOF set the lens wide open and adjust the other settings on the camera to get the exposure you want. ...

    Another good option for h/w! I also have been using OBS Studio. I like that OBS will let you lock the audio from one source when doing multi-cam. :-)

    Yes, those are the settings for how the focus ring operates when the camera is in manual focus mode. They have nothing to do with auto-focus. The user manual describes all the modes except...

    Only the histogram or vectorscope can be displayed along with all the other data on the LCD. I agree with your desire! I suspect the WFM takes too much CPU for the camera to display it and all the...

    Good to hear you had better results. Another tip....since the DVX200 is not great in low light, I almost always shoot in HIGH SENS mode to gain an additional f-stop. I very rarely need to add any...

    I grab the focus before the show starts while zoomed in and that's when I write down the distance for future reference. From your example, the stage is very well lit. That means you'll have a...

    My advice remains....don't use auto-focus. I shoot theater scenes like that all the time. With that much light you'll have a decent DOF.

    Preferably do these steps before the actual show, maybe...

    I've never seen it hunt with a truly static scene, that seems broken. That said, I almost never use autofocus (or auto-anything)...especially with a well lit scene (more DOF, straightforward manual...

    I can't help you any more since I just get the cams (no matter the make/model) close out-of-camera and do the rest in post (Premiere CC). Sorry.

    Sure, in a perfect world, you could get them to exactly match right out of the cameras (and no reason not to keep trying). However, those are so close.....just fix it in post.

    I played with a CX350 at our local A/V Expo last week. A nice camera, but as others have noted, it really isn't a "replacement" for the DVX200.

    One thing they did to make it smaller, was move...

    I use the "Host" port which is good'ol USB A and have never had an external HDD not work, even if it isn't on the list. I format them exFAT.

    I wouldn't expect updates at this point for a camera introduced over 3 years ago. I would, however, expect support. Have you...
