Focusing may become unstable during Zooming. In this case, set the zoom while in RecordStandby, lock the focus by using the manual focus ( pg. 29), then zoom in or out in Record mode. Zooming is possible to a maximum of 800X, or it can be switched to 25X magnification using the optical zoom. ( pg. 23) Zoom magnification of over 25X is done through Digital image processing, and is therefore called Digital Zoom. During Digital zoom, the quality of image may suffer. Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm to the subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Lever is set all the way to W. Also see TELE MACRO in MANUAL Menu on page 24. When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom out first. If zoomed-in in the auto focus mode, the camcorder may automatically zoom out depending on the distance between the camcorder and the subject. This will not occur when TELE MACRO is set to ON. ( pg. 24)

Journalistic Shooting

In some situations, different shooting angles may provide more dramatic results. Hold the camcorder in the desired position and tilt the LCD monitor in the most convenient direction. It can rotate 270 (90 downward, 180 upward).
The time code cannot be reset. During fast-forwarding and rewinding, the time code indication does not move smoothly. The time code is displayed only when TIME CODE is set to ON. ( pg. 26)

Quick Review

Enables to check the end of the last recording. 1) Press during the Recording-Standby mode. 2) Tape is rewound for about several seconds and played back automatically, then pauses in the Recording-Standby mode for the next shot.
Distortion may occur at start of playback. This is normal.

Time Code

During recording, a time code is recorded on the tape. This code is to confirm the location of the recorded scene on the tape during playback.

Display Minutes Seconds Frames* (25 frames = 1 second)

12 : 34 : 24

1) Play back a tape or use Blank Search ( pg. 20) to find the spot at which you want to start recording, then engage the Still Playback mode. ( pg. 20) 2) Set the Power Switch to A or M while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch, then start recording.
* Frames are not displayed during recording.
If recording starts from a blank portion, the time code begins counting from 00:00:00 (minute:second:frame). If recording starts from the end of a previously recorded scene, the time code continues from the last time code number. If during recording a blank portion is left partway through the tape, the time code is interrupted. When recording is resumed, the time code starts counting up again from 00:00:00. This means the camcorder may record the same time codes as those existing in a previously recorded scene. To prevent this, perform Recording From The Middle Of A Tape ( pg. 19) in the following cases:
When shooting again after playing back a recorded tape. When power shuts off during shooting. When a tape is removed and re-inserted during shooting. When shooting using a partially recorded tape. When shooting on a blank portion located partway through the tape. When shooting again after shooting a scene then opening/closing the cassette holder cover.

To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to read the following cautions: During use
. make sure the cassette bears the Mini DV mark. be aware that recording onto prerecorded tapes automatically erases the previously recorded video and audio signals. make sure the cassette is positioned properly when inserting. do not load and unload the cassette repeatedly without allowing the tape to run at all. This slackens the tape and can result in damage. do not open the front tape cover. This exposes the tape to fingerprints and dust. away from heaters or other heat sources. out of direct sunlight. where they wont be subject to unnecessary shock or vibration. where they wont be exposed to strong magnetic fields (such as those generated by motors, transformers or magnets). vertically, in their original cases.

Avoid using the unit

DO NOT leave the unit
In such cases, use an optional cleaning cassette. Insert it and play back. If the cassette is used more than once consecutively, damage to the video heads may result. After the camcorder plays back for about 20 seconds, it stops automatically. Also refer to the cleaning cassettes instructions. If, after using the cleaning cassette, the problems still exist, consult your nearest JVC dealer. Mechanical moving parts used to move the video heads and video tape tend to become dirty and worn out over time. In order to maintain a clear picture at all times, periodic check-ups are recommended after using the unit for about 1,000 hours. For periodic check-ups please consult your nearest JVC dealer.

About moisture condensation
You have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to form on the glass outer surface. This same phenomenon occurs on the head drum of a camcorder when it is moved from a cool place to a warm place, after heating a cold room, under extremely humid conditions or in a place directly subjected to the cool air from an air conditioner. Moisture on the head drum can cause severe damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal damage to the camcorder itself.
Serious malfunctioning If malfunctioning occurs, stop using the unit immediately and consult your local JVC dealer. The camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled device. External noise and interference (from a TV, a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. In such cases, first disconnect its power supply unit (battery pack, AC Adapter, etc.) and wait a few minutes and then re-connect it and proceed as usual from the beginning.
