Useful Settings for Recording
  • When “DATE/TIME RECORDING” is used, the date and time can be recorded together with the video.
    • “Recording Videos with Date and Time”
Caution :
  • Do not expose the lens to direct sunlight. 
  • While this unit can be used with the LCD monitor reversed or the LCD monitor closed with “LCD CLOSED RECORDING” activated, the temperature of this unit rises more easily. Leave the LCD  monitor open when using this unit for long periods of time, or in places exposed to direct sunlight or high temperatures.
  • The power may turn off to protect the circuit if the temperature of this unit rises too much.
  • If the temperature of this unit rises during recording, 7 changes color to yellow as a notification.
  • This unit is a microcomputer-controlled device. Electrostatic discharge, external noise and interference (from a TV, a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. In such a case, close the monitor screen to turn off the power and remove the AC adapter, then press the Reset button to reset this unit. “Resetting this Unit” 
  • Disclaimer
    • We shall not be held responsible for loss of recorded contents when recording videos/audio or playback cannot be operated due to malfunctions in this unit, provided parts, or SD card.
    • Once deleted, recorded contents (data), including data loss due to malfunctions in this unit, cannot be restored. Please be forewarned. 
    • Canon will not be responsible for any lost data.
Memo :
  • Check that the remaining recording time in the media is sufficient before you start recording. “Checking the Remaining Recording Time” 
If the remaining recording time is not sufficient, save the files on a PC or disc before deleting the files from the unit. “Deleting Unwanted Files”
  • When there are many files in the media, it may take time for them to be displayed on the playback screen. Wait for a while as the POWER/ACCESS lamp blinks, indicating normal operation.
  • Recording stops automatically as it cannot be performed for 12 or more consecutive hours according to specifications. (It may take some time to resume recording.) 
  • Up to 4GB per video file can be recorded. File recorded using long recordings that exceeds 4GB is split and recorded into several video files. 
  • Depending on the shooting conditions, the four corners of the screen may appear dark, but this is not a malfunction. In this case, change the shooting conditions by moving the zoom lever, etc.
