Shooting movies (PowerShot SX700 HS)


The details on how to shoot movies are described below.
You can press the movie button, and the camera will start recording movies automatically.
  • The camera may become warm when shooting movies repeatedly over an extended period. This does not indicate damage.
  • Before shooting a movie, lower the flash with your finger. Be careful not to touch the microphone when shooting a movie. Leaving the flash raised, or blocking the microphone may prevent audio from being recorded or may cause the recording to sound muffled.
  • Avoid touching camera controls other than the <Movie Button> () when shooting movies, because sounds made by the camera will be recorded.
  • Once movie recording begins, the image display area changes and subjects are enlarged to allow for correction of significant camera shake. To shoot subjects at the same size shown before shooting, adjust the image stabilization setting

1. Press the power button to turn the camera on.

2. The maximum movie length appears on the [LCD Monitor].
If it does not appear, press the <> button several times.

3. 3. Point the camera at the subject, and move the <Zoom lever> to compose the shot.

4. 4. Press the <Movie Button> () to start shooting.
The camera beeps once as recording begins. [Elapsed Time] and [Rec] are displayed on the [LCD Monitor].
Once recording begins, take your finger off the <Movie Button> ().
  • Black bars are displayed on the top and bottom edges of the screen, and the subject is slightly enlarged. The black bars indicate image areas not recorded.
  • Frames displayed around any detected faces indicate that they are in focus.
  • To resize the subject, repeat the operations in step 3. However, note that the sound of camera operations will be recorded, and movies shot at zoom factors shown in blue will look grainy.
  • When you recompose shots, the focus, brightness, and colors will be automatically adjusted.

The camera beeps twice as recording stops.
  • Recording will stop automatically when the memory card becomes full.
