This camcorder's Automatic Colour Temperature system senses
the colour temperature of the ambient lighting for automatic
white balance adjustment. However, precise colour adjustment
is not possible under the following conditions:
• When an object is in various shades of the same colour.
• When a predominantly red or brown object is being shot outdoors.
In these cases, use the camcorder's built-in preset filters for
white balance adjustment (
Allows you to use the Digital Zoom. By digitally processing and
magnifying images, zooming is possible from 16 times (the optical
zoom limit), to a maximum of 50 times digital magnification.
Digital Zoom is not available. Only optical zoom (maximum
16x magnification) can function. When set to "OFF" during
Digital Zoom, zoom magnification changes to 16x.
Usually the distance to a subject where the lens is in focus
depends on the zoom magnification. Unless there is a distance
of more than 1m to the subject, the lens is out of focus at the
maximum telephoto setting. When set to "ON", you can shoot a
subject as large as possible at a distance of approx. 60 cm.
• Depending on the zoom position, the lens may go out of focus.
