NOTES:
● The image will not appear simultaneously on the 
LCD monitor and the viewfinder. When the 
viewfinder is pulled out while the LCD monitor is 
opened, you can select which one to use. Set 
“PRIORITY” to the desired mode in SYSTEM 
Menu. (
੬ pg. 37, 40)
● Coloured bright spots may appear all over the 
LCD monitor or the viewfinder. However, this is not 
a malfunction. (
੬ pg. 58)
Zooming
Produces the zoom in/out effect, or an 
instantaneous change in image magnification.
Zoom In
Slide the Power Zoom Lever towards “T”.
Zoom Out
Slide the Power Zoom Lever towards “W”.
● The further you slide the Power Zoom Lever, the 
quicker the zoom action. 
NOTES:
● Focusing may become unstable during Zooming. 
In this case, set the zoom while in Record-
Standby, lock the focus by using the manual focus 
(
੬ pg. 45), then zoom in or out in Record mode.
● Zooming is possible to a maximum of 700X, or it 
can be switched to 15X magnification using the 
optical zoom. (
੬ pg. 38)
● Zoom magnification of over 15X is done through 
Digital image processing, and is therefore called 
Digital Zoom.
● During Digital zoom, the quality of image may 
suffer.
● Digital zoom cannot be used when the VIDEO/
MEMORY Switch is set to “MEMORY”.
● Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm to the 
subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Lever is 
set all the way to “W”. Also see “TELE MACRO” in 
MANUAL Menu on page 39.
● When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom 
out first. If zoomed-in in the auto focus mode, the 
camcorder may automatically zoom out 
depending on the distance between the 
camcorder and the subject. This will not occur 
when “TELE MACRO” is set to “ON”. (
੬ pg. 39)
Journalistic Shooting
In some situations, 
different shooting 
angles may provide 
more dramatic results. 
Hold the camcorder in 
the desired position 
and tilt the LCD 
monitor in the most 
convenient direction. It 
can rotate 270° (90° 
downward, 180° 
upward).
Self Recording
Open the LCD 
monitor and tilt it 
upward to 180° so 
that it faces forward, 
point the lens toward 
yourself and start 
recording.
