Default Re: NV-FS200 spots on bright white scenes

I notice that on my video scope much of the bright white background is clipped/crushed, even if much of the time the video level is under 100% modulation. Occasionally the level extends above the 100%. Is that where the dots appear?

I agree with others here that we must have realistic expectations of VHS performance.

Also when capturing as well as in post, attend to contrast levels. It's better to have a little lower contrast at capture if it means avoiding loss of highlight detail as well as shadow detail. At the capture stage we dont go for the final "look". The time for that is in post. Instead just try to capture all the information from the tape without loss, without distortion.
