Time Code
During recording, a time code is recorded on the 
tape. This code is to confirm the location of the 
recorded scene on the tape during playback. 
* Frames are not displayed during recording.
If recording starts from a blank portion, the time 
code begins counting from “00:00:00” 
(minute:second:frame). If recording starts from 
the end of a previously recorded scene, the time 
code continues from the last time code number. 
If during recording a blank portion is left partway 
through the tape, the time code is interrupted. 
When recording is resumed, the time code starts 
counting up again from “00:00:00”. This means 
the camcorder may record the same time codes 
as those existing in a previously recorded scene. 
To prevent this, perform Recording From The 
Middle Of A Tape (See the right column.) in the 
following cases;
● When shooting again after playing back a 
recorded tape.
● When power shuts off during shooting. 
● When a tape is removed and re-inserted during 
shooting.
● When shooting using a partially recorded tape. 
● When shooting on a blank portion located partway 
through the tape.
● When shooting again after shooting a scene then 
opening/closing the cassette holder cover.
NOTES:
● The time code cannot be reset.
● During fast-forwarding and rewinding, the time 
code indication does not move smoothly.
● The time code is displayed only when “TIME 
CODE” is set to “ON”. (

Quick Review
Enables to check the end of the last recording.

2) Tape is rewound for about several seconds 
and played back automatically, then pauses in 
the Recording-Standby mode for the next shot.
● Distortion may occur at start of playback. This is 
normal.
