One last post tonight.. I promise On my Panasonic HC-W850 I notice the image stutters/lags/judders/becomes choppy when the camcorder switches between its modes automatically on Intelligent Auto (IA) mode. This happens both when recording and when paused. Most noticeable is when it turns the on board light on or off, for example when I pan around my room slowly to a dimmer corner, the candle image appears top left of the viewfinder and the light turns on, meanwhile the image is stuttering and lagging during the switch. Once its settled in one mode or another it records absolutely fine. The choppy video is noticeable on the led viewfinder screen and also in the recording when played back on PC etc. So, I have emailed the supplier again, as it was sent off regarding this very issue a few months back, but came back with a clean bill of health. A member very kindly checked his camcorder and did not notice the issue I'm experiencing, but just wondered if anyone else has it! Would be the same for the Panasonic hc-v750 camcorder too! Thanks for putting up with me guys!
