Changing the Audio Mode
You can record sound in two audio modes—16-bit and 12-bit. The 12-bit mode records
sound on two channels (stereo 1), leaving 2 channels free (stereo 2) for adding new
sound later. Select the 16-bit mode for higher sound quality.
Open the menu and select [AUDIO SETUP]. Select [AUDIO MODE], set it to
[16bit] and close the menu.
"16bit" appears for approximately 4 seconds.
The camcorder reduces wind noise automatically. However, you can turn off the wind
screen when recording indoors, or when you want the microphone to be as sensitive
Open the menu and select [AUDIO SETUP]. Select [WIND SCREEN], set it to
[OFF] and close the menu.
"WS |" appears when you turn the wind screen off.
❍ The wind screen function can only be used with the built-in microphone.
❍ The wind screen function can also be used for audio dubbing (when [AUDIO
DUB.] is set to [MIC. IN] in the [AUDIO SETUP] submenu).
