Setting the shutter mode and standard-
mode shutter speed
Once the shutter speed is selected, it is retained even when
the camcorder power is turned off.
Follow the procedure described in 7-2-2 "Selecting the
Display Items" (page 126) to set the VF DISPLAY
MODE item to "2" or "3" on the VF DISP 1 page of
the USER menu.
Push the SHUTTER selector from ON to SELECT.

3 seconds in the setting change and adjustment
progress message display area of the viewfinder
Examples: ": SS : 1/250", ": SLS : 1/30 : 1FRAME",
": ECS : 60.0 Hz"
Before the shutter setting indication disappears, push
the SHUTTER selector down to SELECT again and
repeat this until the desired mode or speed appears.
Pushing the SHUTTER selector down to SELECT
repeatedly allows you to cycle through the settings of
mode and speed preselected on the SHT ENABLE
page of the OPERATION menu.
Note that all modes and all standard-mode speeds
listed in the table on page 93 are preselected using the
SHT ENABLE page of the OPERATION menu.
By factory default, all available shutter modes and
shutter speeds are displayed in the sequence shown in
the following figure. (You can use the SHT ENABLE
page of the OPERATION menu to make a setting so
