OFF: Disables the function. (Factory-preset)
NIGHTSCOPE: (
੬ pg. 44)
 SHUTTER 1/50: The shutter speed is fixed 
at 1/50th of a second. Black bands that usually 
appear when shooting a TV screen become 
narrower.
 SHUTTER 1/120: The shutter speed is 
fixed at 1/120th of a second. The flickering that 
occurs when shooting under a fluorescent light 
or mercury-vapour lamp is reduced.
SHUTTER 1/250/ SHUTTER 1/500/
SHUTTER 1/1000*/ SHUTTER 1/2000*/
SHUTTER 1/4000*: These settings allow fast-
moving images to be captured one frame at a 
time, for vivid, stable slow-motion playback by 
fixing shutter speed variables. Use these 
settings when an automatic adjustment does not 
work well, using SPORTS mode. The faster the 
shutter speed, the darker the picture becomes. 
Use the shutter function under good lighting 
conditions.
 SPORTS
(Variable Shutter Speed: 1/250 – 1/4000):
This setting allows fast-moving images to be 
captured one frame at a time, for vivid, stable 
slow-motion playback. The faster the shutter 
speed, the darker the picture becomes. Use the 
shutter function under good lighting conditions.
 SNOW: Compensates for subjects that may 
otherwise appear too dark when shooting in 
extremely bright surroundings such as in the 
snow.
 SPOTLIGHT: Compensates for subjects 
that may otherwise appear too bright when 
shooting under extremely strong direct lighting 
such as spotlights.
 TWILIGHT: Makes evening scenes look 
more natural. White Balance (
੬ pg. 47) is 
automatically set to “
”, but can be changed to 
your desired setting. When Twilight is chosen, 
the camcorder automatically adjusts the focus 
from approx. 10 m to infinity. From less than 10 
m, adjust the focus manually.
 SEPIA: Recorded scenes have a brownish 
tint like old photos. Combine this with the 
Cinema mode for a classic look.
 MONOTONE: Like classic black and white 
films, your footage is shot in B/W. Used together 
with the Cinema mode, it enhances the “classic 
film” effect.
 CLASSIC FILM*: Gives recorded scenes a 
strobe effect.
 STROBE*: Your recording looks like a 
series of consecutive snapshots.
 MIRROR*: Creates a mirror image on the 
right half of the screen, juxtaposed to the normal 
image on the other half.
* Available only when the VIDEO/MEMORY Switch 
is set to “VIDEO”.
The Navigation Function helps you check tape 
contents by making thumbnail images on a 
memory card.
Before continuing
To use Navigation functions, load a cassette and 
memory card, then set the VIDEO/MEMORY 
Switch to “VIDEO”.

storing time. (

3
Press the Recording Start/Stop Button to

image of the point where recording is started is 
captured and stored in the memory card as a 
thumbnail image.
● If the Recording Start/Stop button is pressed 
before “
” stops blinking, the image of the point 
where the loaded memory card is recognised is 
captured.
