|The decision to buy a Sony HC20. Most of the controls on the camera are easy to use and self explanatory, esp the playback on TV is real easy. This opinion is registered as an early impression - I have not yet used (or indeed mastered) the many facilities provided on this camera. Compact.|

Using this manual
The instructions in this manual are for the three models listed in the table below.

Otherwise, the model name is indicated in the illustrations. Any differences in operation are clearly indicated in the text, for example, DCR-TRV20 only. As you read through this manual, buttons and settings on your camcorder are shown in capital letters. e.g. Set the POWER switch to CAMERA. When you carry out an operation, you can hear a beep sound to indicate that the operation is being carried out. Types of differences DCRMEMORY mark* (on the POWER switch) z Provided Not provided * The model with MEMORY marked on the POWER switch is provided with memory functions. See page 93 for details. TRV6 TRV11 z TRV20 z
Notes When you use the Remote Commander and the lens hood, the Remote Commander may not function properly because the lens hood blocks the infrared rays from the Remote Commander. In such case, remove the lens hood from your camcorder. You cannot attach filters or other objects onto the lens hood. When you use the filter (not supplied) The shadow of the lens hood may appear in the corners of LCD screen or viewfinder.
Recording a picture Using the zoom feature
Move the power zoom lever a little for a slower zoom. Move it further for a faster zoom. Using the zoom function sparingly results in better-looking recordings. T side: for telephoto (subject appears closer) W side: for wide-angle (subject appears farther away)
To use zoom greater than 10 Zoom greater than 10 is performed digitally, if you set D ZOOM to 20 or 120 in the menu settings. The digital zoom function is set to OFF at the factory. (p. 85)
The right side of the bar shows the digital zooming zone. The digital zooming zone appears when you set D ZOOM to 20 or 120. When you shoot close to a subject If you cannot get a sharp focus, move the power zoom lever to the W side until the focus is sharp. You can shoot a subject that is at least about 2 feet 5/8 inch (about 80 cm) away from the lens surface in the telephoto position, or about 1/2 inch (about 1 cm) away in the wide-angle position. Notes on digital zoom Digital zoom starts to function when zoom exceeds 10. The picture quality deteriorates as you move the power zoom lever toward the T side. You cannot use the digital zoom when the POWER switch is set to MEMORY (DCRTRV11/TRV20 only).

To prepare the Remote Commander
Insert two size AA (R6) batteries by matching the + and polarities on the batteries to the + marks inside the battery compartment.
Notes on the Remote Commander Point the remote sensor away from strong light sources such as direct sunlight or overhead lighting. Otherwise, the Remote Commander may not function properly. Your camcorder works in the commander mode VTR 2. Commander modes 1, 2 and 3 are used to distinguish your camcorder from other Sony VCRs to avoid remote control misoperation. If you use another Sony VCR in the commander mode VTR 2, we recommend changing the commander mode or covering the sensor of the VCR with black paper.
