About the shutter chance mark

≥The shutter chance mark does not appear in 

manual focus mode.

≥When the subject is not easily focused, focus on 

the subject manually.

≥You can record still pictures on the card even if 

the shutter chance mark does not appear, but 
pictures may be recorded without being 
focused.

≥The shutter chance mark does not appear or 

has difficulty displaying in the following cases.

≥When the zoom magnification is high.
≥When the Camcorder is shaken.
≥When the subject is moving.
≥When the subject stands in front of a light 

source.

≥When close subjects and far subjects are 

included in the same scene.

≥When the scene is dark.
≥When there is a bright part in the scene.
≥When the scene is filled with only horizontal 

lines.

≥When the scene lacks contrast.
≥When recording on tape.

ª

Concerning the focusing area

≥When there is a contrasting object ahead or 

behind the subject in the focus area, the subject 
may not be focused. If so, move the contrasting 
object out of the focus area.

≥Even when it is still difficult to focus, adjust the 

focus manually.

Zoom in/out function

You can zoom in up to 10

k optically.

Wide-angle recording (zoom out):
Push the [W/T] lever towards [W].
Close-up recording (zoom in):
Push the [W/T] lever towards [T].

≥When zooming in and taking a picture while 

holding the Camcorder by hand, we recommend 
using the image stabilizer function.

≥When you are zooming in on a faraway subject, 

a sharper focus is achieved if the recording 
subject is 1 m (3.3 feet) or further from the 
Camcorder.

≥When the zoom speed is high, the subject may 

not be focused easily.

≥When the zoom magnification is 1k, the 

Camcorder can focus on a subject approx. 4 cm 
(1.6 inches) away from the lens.

≥Be aware that a mechanical sound may be 

recorded when the [W/T] lever is released while 
zooming. Gently move the zoom lever back to 
it’s original position before releasing it.
