    OK sounds a little odd but when I photograph a CRT screen that is on the camera catches an image with a massive black line down half the screen but on this forum many people have photographed their LCD screens with a very clear picture, I take it that the CRT is running in interlaced mode and that is what the camera is picking up ?

    What your're seeing on the CRT is the actual scan lines because of the interlaced picture, whereas an LCD outputs a progressive picture, so you see the complete image.

    You could try experimenting with 1/25 or 1/20 shutter speeds, this may capture both interlaced frames............just keep your hands steady!!!!
