Changing the settings of your camcorder
recordings
Move the power zoom lever D slightly for
a slower zoom. Move it further for a faster
zoom.
z Tips
The minimum distance required between your
camcorder and the subject for focus is about
1 cm (about 13/32 in.) for wide angle and about
80 cm (about 2 5/8 feet) for telephoto.
The focus may not be adjusted at certain zoom
positions if the subject is within 80 cm (about
2 5/8 feet) from your camcorder.
When you set [FOCUS MACRO] to [OFF], you
cannot focus on a subject within 80 cm (about 2
5/8 feet) regardless of the zoom position (p. 74).
Be sure to keep your finger on the power zoom
lever D. If you move your finger off the power
zoom lever D, the operation sound of the
power zoom lever D may also be recorded.
You can increase the zoom speed of the power
zoom lever D or the handle zoom A ([SPEED
ZOOM], p. 74).
1 Set the handle zoom switch B to VAR
or FIX.
z Tips
When you set the handle zoom switch B to
VAR, you can zoom in or out at variable
speed.
When you set the handle zoom switch B to
FIX, you can zoom in or out at fixed speed
set in [HANDLE ZOOM] (p. 74).
2 Press the handle zoom lever A to zoom
in or out.
b Notes
You cannot use the handle zoom lever A when
the handle zoom switch B is set to OFF.
You cannot change the zoom speed of the power
zoom lever D with the handle zoom switch
B.
You can zoom at the desired speed by
turning the zoom ring C. Fine adjustment
is also possible.
b Notes
Turn the zoom ring C at a moderate speed. If
you turn it too fast, the zoom speed may lag
behind the zoom ring rotation speed, or the
operation sound of the zoom may also be
recorded.
