MagicPix function

This function allows you to record color subjects 
in dark locations to stand out against the 
background.
Attach the Camcorder to a tripod and you can 
record images free from vibration.
≥Recorded scene is seen as if frames were 

missed.

Set to Tape Recording Mode.

icon [

≥The [MAGICPIX OFF] indication appears on the 

screen of the Camcorder.

≥If set in a bright place, the screen may become 

whitish for a while.

≥The MagicPix function makes the signal 

charging time of the CCD up to approximately 
30

k longer than usual, so that dark scenes (a 

minimum of 1 lx) can be recorded brightly. For 
this reason, bright dots that are usually invisible 
may be seen, but this is not a malfunction.

≥The MagicPix function is canceled when you 

turn off the power or operate the mode dial.

Soft skin mode

This allows the skin color to be recorded in a 
softer tone. This is more effective if you record a 
person closely from the torso up.

Set to Tape/Card Recording Mode.

be smoothed.

≥If the brightness is insufficient, the effect may 

not be clear.
