Adjusting the LCD screen brightness on the FS22, FS21, and FS200 camcorders

Solution

You can set the brightness of the screen to dim, normal or bright.

Bright: When shooting outdoors where the LCD screen is difficult to see in sunlight.

Dim: When you shoot in dim environments where the LCD's illumination could be an annoyance.

You can switch between Normal and Bright by pressing the <DISP.> button for 2 seconds or longer while the power is on.

note:
  • This setting does not affect the brightness of the recording.
  • Using the bright setting will shorten the effective usage time of the battery pack.

To decrease the brightness, set the [LCD DIMMER] from the menu.

Setting the LCD DIMMER

  1. Turn on the camcorder.



  2. Press the < > button.



  3. Use the joystick < > to select the [MENU] and press < >.



  4. Use the joystick < > to select the [DISPLAY SETUP] and press < >.



  5. Set the [LCD DIMMER] to [ON], and then press the < >.



  6. Press the < > to close the menu.
    - To turn off the LCD screen dimmer, change this setting to [OFF] or press <DISP.> for 2 seconds or more.

note:

  • If the camcorder is turned off and then on again with a compact power adapter connected, the dimmer function will be cancelled. If only the battery pack is used, the dimmer function will not be cancelled.

  • Dimming the LCD screen does not affect the brightness of your recordings or that of the playback image on a TV.

  • When the LCD screen dimmer is turned off, the screen's brightness returns to the previous setting.
