*: At the time of purchase, the built-in memory comes pre-initialized and contains music files for use as background music and images for use with the image mix function (image mix frames).
**A single scene can be recorded continuously for 12 hours; at that point, the camcorder will stop for about 3 seconds before resuming recording.
NOTE
  • Bit rate indicates how much information is recorded in 1 second of video and also affects recording time available on the memory. If you select 60P or 35 Mbps, movies will be recorded at 60 frames per second, progressive.
  • Movies recorded in 60P or MXP mode cannot be saved on AVCHD discs. Use an external Blu-ray Disc recorder compliant with AVCHD Ver. 2.0 specifications to copy those movies onto Blu-ray discs.
  • The camcorder uses a variable bit rate (VBR) to encode video so the actual recording times will vary depending on the subject
  • The following types of MP4 scenes will be recognized as multiple files on other devices.
- Scenes exceeding 4 GB
- Scenes recorded at 35 Mbps exceeding 30 minutes
- Scenes recorded at a video quality other than 35 Mbps exceeding 1 hour
  • Depending on the TV, you may not be able to play back movies recorded in 60P or 35 Mbps.
  • When the video quality is set to 60P or 35 Mbps, dual recording, decoration and faders are not available.
  • When the shooting mode is set to [Cinema], recording in 60P or 35 Mbps is not available. When the shooting mode is set to [Baby], recording in 60P is not available.
