The menu disappears from the screen and the message
"AUTO INTERVAL **M**S" indicating Auto
Interval Rec mode appears along the bottom of the
screen.
"**M**S" indicates the shooting interval. For
example, the message "AUTO INTERVAL 00M04S"
indicates that the shooting interval is four seconds.
Note
The camcorder exits Auto Interval Rec mode whenever it
is powered off. However, the TAKE TOTAL TIME and
REC TIME settings are maintained. You do not need to set
them again the next time you use Auto Interval Rec mode.
To shoot and record in Auto Interval Rec mode
Proceed as follows.
1
After performing the basic procedures for shooting
and recording, following the instructions in 3-2-1
"Basic Procedures" (page 49), secure the camcorder
so that it will not move.
2
Press the REC START button on the camcorder or the
VTR button on the lens.
The camcorder starts recording in Auto Interval Rec
mode. When you use the PRE-LIGHTING function,
recording starts after the light is switched on.
The actual recording to disc begins when the
camcorder has saved about ten seconds of video in
memory, so disc access is intermittent.
While recording in Auto Interval Rec mode, the
TALLY indicator (green) in the viewfinder flashes (4
flashes/second) and the message "AUTO INTERVAL
**M**S" flashes on the viewfinder screen.
When the camcorder is capturing the picture in
memory, the REC indicator (red) in the viewfinder
lights.
After the length of time for recording on the disc (REC
TIME) has elapsed, the camcorder automatically stops
recording.
To continue auto interval recording
Press the REC START button on the camcorder or the
VTR button on the lens again.
The camcorder starts recording in Auto Interval Rec mode
again.
To interrupt auto interval recording
Press the REC START button or the VTR button on the
lens. The camcorder stops recording.
However, disc access may occur for recording picture data
already stored in memory.
To end auto interval recording
You can exit Auto Interval Rec mode using the following
two methods:
• Set the POWER switch to OFF.
• Set CACHE/INTVAL REC to OFF on the FUNCTION
1 page.
Time required for shooting and time required for
recording on the disc
Auto Interval Rec mode is effective for shooting objects
that move very slowly. To use this function, you need to
set the total time for shooting (TAKE TOTAL TIME) and
the length of time for recording on the disc (REC TIME).
The time required for shooting is the time required to
capture the very slowly moving subject, and the camcorder
must be arranged so that during this time the subject is
always in the frame.
The disc recording time indicates the running time of the
completed recording. The camcorder calculates the time-
lapse interval from these two times.
