It takes a few seconds for the cassette holder to open. Do not apply force. There may be a delay after you open the cassette holder cover until the cassette holder opens. Do not use force. If you wait a few seconds and the cassette holder does not open, close the cassette holder cover and try again. If the cassette holder still does not open, turn the camcorder off then on again. If the tape does not load properly, open the cassette holder cover fully and remove the cassette. A few minutes later, insert it again. When the camcorder is suddenly moved from a cold place to a warm environment, wait a short time before opening the cassette holder cover. Once the cassette holder is closed, it recedes automatically. Wait until it recedes completely before closing the cassette holder cover. Closing the cassette holder cover before the cassette holder comes out may cause damage to the camcorder. Even when the camcorder is switched off, a cassette can be loaded or unloaded. After the cassette holder is closed with the camcorder switched off, however, it may not recede. It is recommended to turn the power on before loading or unloading. When resuming recording, once you open the cassette holder cover a blank portion will be recorded on the tape or a previously recorded scene will be erased (recorded over) regardless of whether the cassette holder came out or not. See page 14 for information about recording from the middle of a tape.

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).

Zooming

To produce the zoom in/out effect, or an instantaneous change in image magnification. Zoom In Slide the Power Zoom Lever & towards T. Zoom Out Slide the Power Zoom Lever & towards W. The further you slide the Power Zoom Lever &, the quicker the zoom action.

Self-Recording

You can shoot yourself while viewing your own image in the LCD monitor. Open the LCD monitor and tilt it upward 180 so that it faces forward, then point the lens toward yourself and start recording.
Focusing may become unstable during Zooming. In this case, set the zoom while in Record-Standby, lock the focus by using the manual focus ( pg. 26), then zoom in or out in Record mode. Zooming is possible to a maximum of 700X, or it can be switched to 16X magnification using the optical zoom ( pg. 28). Zoom magnification of over 16X is done through Digital image processing, and is therefore called Digital Zoom. During Digital zoom, the quality of image may suffer. Digital zoom cannot be used when the VIDEO/DSC Switch 4 is set to DSC ( VIDEO/DSC Switch Position). Macro shooting (as close as approx. 5 cm (2") to the subject) is possible when the Power Zoom Lever & is set all the way to W. Also see TELE MACRO in the Menu Screen on page 29.

Operation Mode

Choose the appropriate operation mode according to your preference using the Power Switch y and VIDEO/DSC Switch 4 (GR-D90/D70 only). Power Switch Position
: Allows you to set various recording functions using the Menus. If you want more creative capabilities than Full Auto recording, try this mode. (Full Auto): Allows you to record using NO special effects or manual adjustments. Suitable for standard recording. OFF (CHARGE): Allows you to switch off the camcorder. PLAY: Allows you to play back a recording on the tape. Allows you to access data stored on the memory card or to transfer a still image stored on the memory card to a computer.

VIDEO/DSC Switch Position (GR-D90/D70 only)
VIDEO: Allows you to record on a tape or play back a tape. If REC SELECT is set to / in the DSC Menu Screen, still images are recorded on the memory card as well. Zoom magnification over 16X is available ( pg. 13, 28). DSC: Allows you to record on a memory card or access data stored on a memory card.

TAPE RECORDING

02.11.6, 5:47 PM

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. 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 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.

White Balance Adjustment

A term that refers to the correctness of color reproduction under various lighting. If the white balance is correct, all other colors will be accurately reproduced. The white balance is usually adjusted automatically. However, more advanced camcorder operators control this function manually to achieve a more professional color/tint reproduction. Menu Screen closes and the Manual White Balance indicator ( is displayed.
In step 2, it may be difficult to focus on the white paper. In such a case, adjust focus manually ( pg. 26). A subject can be shot under various types of lighting conditions indoors (natural, flourescent, candlelight, etc.). Because the color temperature is different depending on the light source, the subject tint will differ depending on the white balance settings. Use this function for a more natural result. Once you adjust white balance manually, the setting is retained even if the power is turned off or the battery removed.

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).

Zooming

To produce the zoom in/out effect, or an instantaneous change in image magnification. Zoom In Slide the Power Zoom Lever ^ towards T. Zoom Out Slide the Power Zoom Lever ^ towards W. The further you slide the Power Zoom Lever ^, the quicker the zoom action.

Self-Recording

You can shoot yourself while viewing your own image in the LCD monitor. Open the LCD monitor and tilt it upward 180 so that it faces forward, then point the lens toward yourself and start recording.
Focusing may become unstable during Zooming. In this case, set the zoom while in Record-Standby, lock the focus by using the manual focus ( pg. 19), then zoom in or out in Record mode. Zooming is possible to a maximum of 700X, or it can be switched to 16X magnification using the optical zoom ( pg. 21). Zoom magnification of over 16X 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 the Menu Screen on page 22.

Operation Mode

Choose the appropriate operation mode according to your preference using the Power Switch y. Power Switch Position
