Reacquiring subjects lost during zooming (Framing Assistance)


Sometimes, while zooming in on a very far subject (large zoom ratio), you might momentarily "lose" the subject as it moves out of the frame. In this case, you can use the framing assistance function to temporarily zoom out a little and make it easier to find the subject.

1. Turn on the camcorder.
Slide the lens cover switch down.
Open the LCD panel to turn on the camcorder. You can also press ON/OFF.

2. Move the zoom lever toward [T] (telephoto) to zoom in.

: W (wide angle)
: T (telephoto)

3. If you lose a subject during zooming, Press and hold [ ] to zoom out momentarily.

  • The original zoom position is indicated by a white frame.

4. Reframe the shot so the desired subject is within the white frame.

  • You can use the zoom lever to change the size of the frame.

5. When the desired subject is correctly framed, release [ ].
  • The camcorder will zoom in on the area indicated by the white frame.

You can select the initial size of the framing assistance white frame with the -> -> -> [Framing Assistance] setting.
