    V-
    I was playing with a sweet camera from sony this past weekend
    the size of a pack of smokes, had all the god stuff built into it.
    problem I had was the recording format MPG4 would not play
    on any cd/tv players, played great on computers and reg cd players
    but not directly to tv. there was no conversion in the software that
    came with the camera, was told that there are PROFESSIONAL studio programs
    that do it but cost $$$$$,
    maybe the staff at DDS main studio knows how this can be solved.
    This all started when I was at Beaver Springs for the reunion event t
    here was another photog there with
    a small video camers attached to his digital 35mm, he had stills and video all at once.
    I have questions out to the studio that helps me with my yearly NETO cd/dvd.
    Hope to have answers by the time I go back to Beaver Springs
    for NETO 10th Anniversity weekend racing. If you hear anything let me know .
    I got the super in car mounting system I told you about a couple of months ago
    easy to use and out of the way. If you have a camera that you want to try it let me know.

    See ya sunday some time,
    Bobby S.

    V-Bob
    you are pluging the camera right into the flat screen correct ❓
    I was able to do the same thing with the sony I was playing with
    the problem was when I put the movies from the computer
    onto a dvd and put the dvd into the tv dvd player
    the movie format was not viewable on the tv
    by going through the camera to your flat screen the camera is
    making it viewable.

    that is the way it was explained to me from a tv-tech 🙄

    see ya sunday, I’ll be with Rich Head and his ’63 Impala
    we’re going down there saturday leaving Dover about Noon’ish
    you want to try the mount for in car trick-or-ie 😆
    I’ll bring it so it is there to use.

    Dino tell papasmurf thanks for the offer
    if I get another toy to try I’ll contact him,

    GOTTA LOVE THIS SITE..
