note:
  • Depending on the condition of the tape (long usage, imperfections, etc.) you may notice some video problems (blocky video artifacts, banding, etc.) in the playback picture when playing back recordings made in LP mode. We recommend using the SP mode for important recordings.
  • If you make recordings in SP and LP modes on the same tape, during playback you may notice some video problems in the picture at the point where the recording mode changes.
  • When playing back in this camcorder tapes recorded in LP mode with other devices or vice versa, you may notice some problems in the playback picture or the sound may stop briefly.
