Before You Begin Recording

Make a test recording first to check if the camcorder operates correctly. Since recordings made on a DVD-R disc cannot be deleted, we recommend you use a DVD-RW disc to make the test recordings.

  1. Holding the lock button pressed down, move the power switch to <ON>.
  2. Move the / switch to the (MOVIES) position.
  3. Press the start/stop button to begin recording.
    Press the start/stop button again to pause recording.

When You Have Finished Recording:

  1. Close the LCD panel.

  2. Make sure that the DISC access lamp is off.

  3. Remove the disc.

  4. Turn off the camcorder.

  • The process of recognizing a disc may take a moment. Wait until the camcorder finishes recognizing the disc before you start recording.
  • When recording in bright places it may be difficult to use the LCD screen. In such case, use the viewfinder instead.
  • When recording in very loud places (such as fireworks shows or concerts), sound may become distorted or it may not be recorded at the actual levels. This is not a malfunction.
  • In order to save power when the camcorder is powered by a battery pack, the camcorder will automatically shut off if left without any operations for 5 minutes. Approximately 30 seconds before the camcorder shuts off, "AUTO POWER OFF" appears in the center of the screen. If the camcorder shuts off, move the power switch to <OFF> and then back to <ON> again.
  • About the LCD and viewfinder screen: The screens are produced using extremely high-precision manufacturing techniques, with more than 99.99% of the pixels operating to specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels may occasionally misfire or appear as black or green dots. This has no effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a malfunction.
