About the focusing frame:

  • This camcorder uses the 9-point artificial intelligence autofocus (9-point AiAF) that will automatically select the best focusing frames out of nine available, allowing you to focus on subjects even if they are not in the center of the picture.

  • If the subject is not suitable for autofocus, o turns yellow. Keep the <PHOTO> button pressed halfway and adjust the focus manually with the joystick (,).

  • In step 5 above, the image may appear out of focus for a moment while the camcorder is focusing.

  • 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. "AUTO POWER OFF" appears 30 seconds before shutoff. To continue recording, turn the power switch to <OFF> and then back to <CAMERA>.
