2 Press the Recording Start/Stop Button to start video recording or SNAPSHOT to shoot a still image.
Be careful not to point the LED Light directly to eyes. If the light does not reach the subject, the Night-Alive function will be activated, and makes it possible to shoot the subject brighter. There is a difference in the brightness of the images shot between the centre area which is illuminated by the LED Light and the surrounding areas (which will be darker). Since subjects are shot at a reduced shutter speed when the White LED Light setting is ON, they will appear slightly blurred.

Sound is not heard from the speaker during Audio Dubbing. When editing onto a tape that was recorded at 12-bit, the old and new soundtracks are recorded separately. If you dub onto a blank space on the tape, the sound may be disrupted. Make sure you only edit recorded areas. If feedback or howling occurs during TV playback, move the camcorders microphone away from the TV, or turn down the TVs volume. If you change from 12-bit to 16-bit in mid-recording and then use the tape for Audio Dubbing, it is not effective from the point where 16-bit recording began. During Audio Dubbing, when the tape moves to scenes recorded in the LP mode, scenes recorded in 16-bit audio or a blank portion, Audio Dubbing stops. To perform Audio Dubbing while watching on the television, make connections.

Power (pg. 6)
Perform charging where the temperature is between 10C and 35C (50F and 95F). 20C to 25C (68F to 77F) is the ideal temperature range for charging. If the environment is too cold, charging may be incomplete. Charging time is based on room temperature of 20C (68F). Charging times are for a fully discharged battery pack. Charging time varies according to the ambient temperature and the status of the battery pack. To avoid interference with reception, do not use the AC Adapter near a radio. Since the AC Adapter processes electricity internally, it becomes warm during use. Be sure to use it only in wellventilated areas. The following operation stops charging: Set the Power Switch to PLAY, A or M. Disconnect the AC Adapter from the camcorder. Unplug the AC Adapter from the AC outlet. Detach the battery from the camcorder. Using the optional AA-V40U AC Power Adapter/Charger, you can charge the BN-V408U/V416U/V428U battery pack without the camcorder. However, it cannot be used as an AC Adapter.
