Could the advanced age of the camera have something to do with it? I wonder if the tape used inside the camera also very old? If it uses VHS, then a fresh tape might have been used as they are still (just barely) available at many electronics stores.
I suppose if there was a problem with the image sensors or if the camera was old enough in design to experience 'burn-in', then every shot would show the anomaly, right?
Anyone get a good glimpse at the camera who also knows about older video camera technology? If older video tape was used, does it have a kind of shelf life where if used many years later can yield unpredictable results?
