Basic Procedure for Shooting
1
2
During recording, the REC indicator lights in
the viewfinder. Perform zooming and focus
control, if necessary.
Note
During recording (while the ACCESS indicator is
lit) do not remove the battery pack. If you do, the
internal processing for recording may not finish
properly, which may cause the last few seconds of
recording to be lost.
For details, see "Handling of discs when
recording does not end normally (salvage
function)" on page 73.

To stop recording, press the REC
START button or the VTR button on
the lens again.
The REC indicator in the viewfinder goes
off.
The material recorded from step 5 to step 6 is
saved as a single clip.
To check the last two seconds of the
recording (recording review)
If you press the RET button on the lens while
recording is paused, the last two seconds of
the recording is played back. If you hold
down the RET button, a low-speed reverse
search begins at a position two seconds
before the recording end position. When you
release the RET button, the reverse search
stops and playback in the forward direction
begins. After playback, the camcorder is
ready to start recording again.
By assigning the same function as that of the
RET button on the lens to the ASSIGN 1/3/4
switch or COLOR TEMP. button, you can
use the switch in the same way as the lens
RET button.
On how to assign functions to the ASSIGN
switches, see page 204.

Repeat steps 5 and 6 as required for
