continuously. (The light does not turn on and off
automatically.)
When the setting is completed, the message
"AUTO INTERVAL **M**S" appears along the

indicates the shooting interval.
For example, the message "AUTO INTERVAL
00M04S" indicates that the shooting interval is
four seconds.
The camcorder exits Auto Interval Rec mode
whenever it is powered off. However, the TAKE
TOTAL TIME, REC TIME, and PRE-
LIGHTING settings are maintained. You do not
need to set them again the next time you use Auto
Interval Rec mode.
