Inserting the Battery

The wireless controller operates with AA batteries.

Insert two AA batteries, following the + and - markings. Be careful not to reverse the polarity of the batteries.

Audio Dubbing

You can add sound to the original sound on a pre-recorded tape from audio products (AUDIO IN) or with the or external microphone (MIC. IN). The original sound will not be erased. For best results, add sound to tapes that have been recorded with this camcorder in SP mode with 12-bit sound. If there are non-recorded portions on the tape, or portions recorded in a mode other than SP mode, or with 16-bit or 12-bit, 4-channel sound, dubbing will stop. If your tape hasn?t been recorded in SP mode with 12-bit sound, we recommend dubbing your original tape onto a blank tape using the ELURA40 MC's analog line-in function, then dubbing audio onto the new tape. Make absolutely sure to set the audio mode of the new tape to 12-bit and the recording mode to SP.

To connect other audio equipment:

  • Do not use the yellow video terminal.
  • The AV terminal doesn't put out any video, so connect the S-video terminals and check your TV, or check the LCD or the viewfinder as you add new sound. Always check the new sound with the speaker.

To connect an external microphone:

  • When adding sound using the built-in microphone, make sure not to connect any cables to the MIC terminal.
  • To use your TV to monitor video, connect the S-video terminal or the AV terminal (use only the video plug) to your TV. You can monitor the sound with headphones only when using the S-video terminal.

  1. Turn the camcorder's POWER switch to PLAY (VCR) and move the camcorder's TAPE/CARD switch to TAPE.

  2. Load a recorded cassette.

  3. Open the menu and select [VCR SET UP].

  4. Select [AUDIO DUB].

  5. Select [AUDIO IN] or [MIC. IN] and close the menu.

  • If you begin a search very close to the start of a recorded still image during photo search, the camcorder may skip straight past it.
  • When you have set the area for the World Clock, date search also looks for the change in date based on the adjusted time.
  • A date/area cannot be identified if the total recording time on that day/area was less than 1 minute.
  • Date search playback may start just before or after the beginning of the located section.

Returning to a Pre-marked Position
