Types of recording modes and changing the recording modes


Recording modes

The camcorder offers 5 recording modes for recording AVCHD movies and 2 for MP4 movies. Changing the recording mode will change the recording time available on the memory. For AVCHD movies, select MXP or FXP mode for better movie quality; select LP mode for longer recording times.
For MP4 movies, you can choose one of two bit rates. Bit rate indicates how much information is recorded in 1 second of video. Select 4 Mbps for smaller file sizes and faster uploads.

  • For AVCHD movies:

* Scenes recorded in MXP mode cannot be saved onto AVCHD discs. Save such scenes onto Blu-ray discs or use the supplied PIXELA VideoBrowser *1 to back up such scenes. If you use PIXELA VideoBrowser *1, however, scenes will be converted to FXP mode quality.

*1: Depending on the model of your camcorder, this software might not come with it.
