Using a Memory Card
Connection to a computer or PictBridge compliant printer will not work when the
memory card contains more than 1800 images. For best performance, we
recommend not recording more than 100 images on the memory card when
you plan to connect the camcorder to a computer or printer.
When you are using a Macintosh computer, you may not be able to download
image with ImageBrowser or with OS standard software when the memory card
contains more than 1000 images. In such case, use a PC card reader for
downloading the images.
When the subject is too bright (overexposed), use the optional FS-28U ND filter.
When the Focus-Priority mode is set to [ON]:
When you press the PHOTO button fully before and focusing frame turn
green, it may take up to 2* seconds until focus is adjusted and the still image
can be recorded to the memory card.
* Up to 4 seconds in the Low Light and the night modes.
If the subject is not suitable for autofocus, the focusing frame turns yellow and
locks the focus. Adjust the focus manually with the SET dial.
When the Focus-Priority mode is set to [OFF]:
No focusing frame appears.
In step 2, turns green, and focus and exposure are locked.
The camcorder shuts off when you do not operate it for 5 minutes to save
power. “ AUTO POWER OFF” appears 20 seconds before shutoff. To
continue recording, turn the POWER switch to OFF and then back to CAMERA.
