timecode settings. To make timecode settings,
first exit Picture Cache mode.
When power is lost during recording in Picture
Cache mode
• If the POWER switch is turned off during
recording in Picture Cache mode, the
camcorder gets powered off after disc access
has continued for a few seconds so that the
picture at the moment when the POWER switch
is turned off is recorded.
• If you remove the battery, pull out the DC cable,
or cut power to the AC adaptor during recording
in Picture Cache mode, video and audio stored
in memory will be lost without being recorded
to the disc. For this reason, make sure you do
not replace the battery while recording.
Time-lapse video (Interval Rec
function)
Using the memory in the camcorder, you can
capture time-lapse video. There are two modes
for this function, which is known as "Interval
Rec".
Auto Interval Rec mode: In Auto Interval Rec
mode, pictures are automatically shot a frame
at a time at the specified interval and stored
in memory. To use this function, you must set
the total time for shooting (TAKE TOTAL
TIME) and the length of time for recording
on the disc (REC TIME).
Manual Interval Rec mode: A specified number
of frames (NUMBER OF FRAME) is
recorded when you press the REC START
button or the lens VTR button.
There are two Manual Interval Rec modes: a
single shot mode in which recording is done
once with each press of the button, and a
consecutive mode in which recording is done
repeatedly at a specified interval after the
button is pressed.
A pre-lighting function is available in Auto
Interval Rec mode and the consecutive mode of
Manual Interval Rec mode. This function
automatically turns on the light before recording
starts, which allows you to record pictures under
stable light and color temperature conditions.

Interval Rec settings cannot be made while this unit is in
