Vixia HF R700 Image Shakes


I bought a couple of these based on the reviews to use to record concerts that I promote. However, when on tripods, the vibration from the music causes the image to distort on both cameras. They are exceptionally light but I have never had this issue before with any other camera, including my phone. If you hold the camera there is no problem.


I tried weighting the tripods with sandbags - which helped a bit but not enough. 


Not sure if anyone else has this issue and has come up with a solution but any ideas will be appreciated!

I sometimes get this with my G40. The vibration is being transmitted to the camera via the tripod. In my case using a monopod helps tremendously. I know in your case this is not an option. See if you can isolate the tripods feet from the floor. Maybe standing then on the sandbags.

You might also try experimenting with the Image Stabilization switched on and off.

Hi Sprisco,


Thanks for posting.

When using a tripod, please turn your camcorder's image stabilizer off.
