Recording in 16:9 mode with the XL2 camcorder


Recording in 16:9 Mode

The camcorder uses the full width of the CCD, retaining image quality and providing a larger horizontal angle of view.

Set the ASPECT RATIO switch to 16:9.
The viewfinder screen changes to the "letterbox" format.

  • If you play back a 16:9 recording on a normal TV, the image appears horizontally squeezed.
  • If you connect the camcorder to a TV with an S (S1) terminal or Video ID-1 system, recordings made in the 16:9 mode will be automatically played back in widescreen mode.
  • The aspect ratio does not change when you operate the ASPECT RATIO switch during recording. It changes once you pause recording.
