FAQ: Changing the Recording programs according to the situation, such as in dark surroundings

Helpful Information:

Solution:


If you set the Recording programs to the Special Scene recording program, such as [Low Light], which allows you to record bright subjects in dark surroundings, or [Night Scene], which allows you to record night scenes with low noise, you can make recordings with low noise, depending on the place or the subject.

1. Turn on the camcorder.

2. Touch [ ] ].

3. Touch [Rec. Programs] -> [ Portrait* ]., in that order.
*The current Special Scene recording program setting is displayed.

4. Drag your finger up and down to select the desired recording program.

NOTE
  • [ Portrait]/[ Sports]/[ Snow]/[ Beach]: The picture may not appear smooth during playback.
  • [ Portrait]: The blur effect of the background increases the more you zoom in (T).
  • [ Snow]/[ Beach]: The subject may become overexposed on cloudy days or in shaded places. Check the image on the screen.
  • [ Low Light]:

- Moving subjects may leave a trailing afterimage.
- Picture quality may not be as good as in other modes.
- White points may appear on the screen.
- Autofocus may not work as well as in other modes. In such case, adjust the focus manually.
  • [ Fireworks]:

- To avoid camcorder blur (blur due to the camcorder moving) we recommend using a tripod.
- When taking photos, slower shutter speeds are used so blur is more likely to occur. Stabilize the camcorder, for example, by mounting it on a tripod.
