3-2-4 Starting a Shoot With a Few
Seconds of Pre-Stored Picture
Data (Picture Cache Function)
The camcorder has a large capacity internal memory, in
which you can cache the last few seconds (maximum 12
seconds) of captured video and audio, so that recording
starts from a point just before you press the REC START
button or VTR button on the lens.
Setting the Picture Cache time/Picture
Cache mode
To record in Picture Cache mode, you need to turn on
Picture Cache mode and set the picture data storage time
(Picture Cache time) using the USER menu.
The Picture Cache time determines the number of seconds
recorded from the Picture Cache, counting back from the
time when you press the REC START button or the VTR
button on the lens to start recording. However, the number
of seconds actually recorded from the Picture Cache may
be shorter immediately after the setting of the VDR SAVE/
STBY switch is changed, and in the special situations
explained in the following notes.
Notes
• The contents of picture cache memory are unstable for a
short time immediately after you select Picture Cache
mode or change the Picture Cache time. Therefore, if
you put the unit into recording mode by pressing the
REC START button or the VTR button on the lens
immediately after such operation, pictures just before
such operation cannot be recorded.
Also, a certain amount of time is required to actually
start recording to a disc immediately after you insert a
disc and when the VDR SAVE/STBY switch is set to
SAVE. In these cases, the number of seconds that can
actually be recorded from the picture cache may be
fewer than the specified picture cache time.
• During playback or recording review, no data is saved to
the picture cache memory. Thus it is not possible to use
this function to rerecord the last few seconds of material
from playback or recording review.
To turn Picture Cache mode on, proceed as follows.
