You can select a picture quality for still pictures to be recorded. (-27-) In tape recording mode, the size of pictures that can be recorded is . In order to record higher quality still pictures, you must use the card recording mode.
If the cassette tape has no blank part, then the Camcorder will stop at the end of the tape. The Camcorder stops at a point approx. 1 second before the end of the last image recorded. When you start recording at that point, the image can be recorded seamlessly from the last image.
Recording still pictures onto a card (Photoshot)
Check the recording
The last image recorded is played back for 2 to 3 seconds. After checking, the Camcorder will be set to a recording pause. Set to Tape Recording Mode. 1 Press the joystick during the recording pause until the icon 1 appears. 2 Move the joystick down to select the recording check icon [ ].
To record still pictures clearly When zooming in on the subject with a magnification of 4k to 10k or higher, it is difficult to reduce the slight shaking from holding the Camcorder by hand. We recommend decreasing the zoom magnification and approaching the subject when recording. When recording still pictures, hold the Camcorder firmly with your hands and keep your arms stationary at your side so as not to shake the Camcorder. You can record stable pictures without shaking by using a tripod and the remote control. For the number of still pictures to be recorded on a card, refer to -66-. The sound cannot be recorded. While data is being recorded on a card, do not operate the mode dial. When the access lamp is lit, do not insert or remove a card.

This function allows you to record color subjects in dark locations to stand out against the background. Attach the Camcorder to a tripod, and you can record images free from vibration. Only manual focusing can be used. Recorded scene is seen as if frames were missed. MagicPix function You can record dark locations brightly in color. 0 Lux MagicPix function You can record completely dark locations with the light of the LCD monitor. Set to Tape Recording Mode. 1 Press the joystick until the icon 1 appears. 2 Move the joystick up to select the MagicPix icon [ ].
To cancel the MagicPix function Select the MagicPix icon until the MagicPix indication disappears. If set in a bright place, the screen may become whitish for a while. The MagicPix function makes the signal charging time of CCD up to approximately 30k longer than usual, so that dark scenes invisible to the naked eye can be recorded brightly. For this reason, bright dots that are usually invisible may be seen, but this is not a malfunction. The MagicPix function is canceled when you operate the power switch or the mode dial.
Soft skin mode
This allows the skin color to be recorded in a softer tone. Set to Tape/Card Recording Mode. 1 Press the joystick until the icon 1 appears. 2 Move the joystick down to select the soft skin icon [ ].
Each upward press switches the modes. OFF # MagicPix function # 0 Lux MagicPix function # OFF 3 (In the case of 0 Lux MagicPix function) Rotate the LCD monitor towards the lens side.
To cancel the soft skin mode Select the [ ] icon again. If the background or anything else in the scene has colors similar to the skin color, they will also be softened. If the brightness is insufficient, the effect may not be clear.
When the LCD monitor is reversed, the Power LCD Lamp turns on and the screen is lit in white. Record the subject while viewing it on the viewfinder. The light of the LCD monitor reaches approx. 3.9 feet (1.2 m) or less.
By focusing only on the subject and blurring the background, the image can be impressive. This Camcorder can focus on the subject at a distance of approx. 16 inches (40 cm). Set to Tape/Card Recording Mode. 1 Press the joystick until the icon 1 appears. 2 Move the joystick up to select the tele-macro icon [ ].
Pause recording. (fade out) The image/audio gradually disappears. After the image/audio completely disappears, recording stops.

If a sharper focus cannot be achieved, adjust the focus manually. In the following cases, the tele-macro function is canceled. The zoom magnification becomes lower than 10k. The [OFF/ON] switch or the mode dial is operated.
To cancel the Cinema function Set [ADVANCE] >>[CINEMA] >> [OFF]. Images played back vary depending on the TV connected. Please refer to the operating instructions for your TV. This function does not widen the recording range. When images are played back on a TV screen, the date/time indication may be erased in some cases. Depending on the TV, the picture quality may deteriorate.

Some screenshots used in this guide are reproduced from the Panasonic PV-GS65 User manual.
WHAT IS IN EACH ACCESSORY PACK?
There are two types of accessory packs available for checkout at the front desk: MacBook This pack contains a DVI/VGA video adaptor for connecting a MacBook to a projector
Digital Camera This pack comes with a remote, as well as a USB cable and an audio cable.
USING THE VIDEO CAMERA REMOTE
The remote control allows you to control the video camera without holding it. The remote works at a distance of approximately 15 feet from the front of the video camera, and can be used when the camera is on a tripod to start video recording. Other buttons on the remote control the zoom, as well as playback options.
CONNECTING VIDEO CAMERA TO COMPUTER
Note: It is important to realize that the USB cable only works for transferring still images from the video camera to the computer. The included FireWire cable that comes in the video camera bag upon checkout is used to transfer video from the camera to the computer. Use the DV input, circled in the diagram to the right, as well as the FireWire cable included with the camera to connect the video camera to the computer. Please take a look at the Video Camera quicktip or the iMovie quicktip for further instructions.
USING THE AUDIO CABLE
The audio jack is located next to the tape deck of the camera. Here, you can use the audio cable to send the audio to another source, such as a speaker system or television, when playing back videos. The included Apple Remote should automatically link with a Macintosh machine. If it does not, you may need to enable the remote control receiver. From the Apple menu, select System Preferences and click on the Security button. Here you can deselect Disable remote control infrared receiver Use the + and - buttons to increase or decrease volume, and the Play/Pause, Forward, and Backward buttons to browse through music or control a slideshow presentation. Holding down the Play/Pause button will put the computer to sleep.
Macintosh computers do not have a VGA port, but rather a DVI output. Thus, a DVI/VGA adaptor is necessary should you choose to connect a MacBook to a projector or other source. 1. Plug one end of the VGA cable into the corresponding port on the projector, usually labeled PC1 In. 2. Locate the video adaptor and attach it to the other end of the VGA cable. 3. Plug the adaptor end of the cable in to the corresponding port on the Macintosh computer
