Canon Optura over exposure
I have the same camcorder with the same problem. I tried the vcr mode for several min then back to cam mode...it did work. I know this thread is old, any word on the problem being corrected. I hate to resort to "exposing" this to the general public, but I will. I host a television program and I will be requesting video tape testimonials from all of those that want to participate and tell your story about the lack of help you got from Canon. Please post here if you are interested. I will air this on my show.
