Default value

*1: Recorded in 1,920 x 1,080 resolution. Movies recorded using other recording modes are recorded in 1,440 x 1,080 resolution.
*2: At the time of purchase, the built-in memory contains about 70 MB of music files (background music) and 5 MB of image files (image mix frames).
*3: A single scene can be recorded continuously for 12 hours; at that point, the camcorder will stop for about 3 seconds before resuming recording.

  • Movies recorded in MXP mode cannot be saved on AVCHD discs. Use an external Blu-ray Disc recorder to copy MXP movies onto Blu-ray discs or use the supplied software VideoBrowser to create AVCHD discs*.
    *MXP scenes will be converted to an image quality similar to that of FXP scenes.
  • The camcorder uses a variable bit rate (VBR) to encode video so the actual recording times will vary depending on the content of the scenes.The camcorder retains the last setting used even if you set the camcorder to mode.
