About the variable speed zoom
1tW T 5tW T 10tW T
When zooming in and taking a picture while holding the Camcorder by hand, we recommend using the image stabilizer function. When you are zooming on a faraway subject, a sharper focus is achieved if the recording subject is 3.9 feet (1.2 m) or further from the Camcorder. When the zoom speed is high, the subject may not be focused easily. When the zoom magnification is 1k, the Camcorder can focus on a subject approx. 1.6 inches (4 cm) distant from the lens. Digital zoom function If the zoom magnification exceeds 10 times, then the digital zoom function will be activated. The digital zoom function allows you to select a magnification from 25k to 700k. 1 Set [ADVANCE] >> [D.ZOOM] >> [25k] or [700k].
When the flash is not used Set [ADVANCE] >> [FLASH] >> [ ]. To adjust the brightness of the flash 1 Set [ADVANCE] >> [FLASH LEVEL] >> select the desired brightness level. [j]: If the brightness is too high ([j] or [Aj] indication will appear.) [d0]: In normal recording (the  or [A] indication will appear.) [i]: If the brightness is insufficient ([i] or [Ai] indication will appear.) Red eye reduction function Reduces the phenomena where human eyes become red from flashes. 1 Set [ADVANCE] >> [RED EYE] >> [ON].
The flash is activated and the picture will be recorded. You cannot use the built-in flash unless the card is inserted in the Camcorder. The Camcorder, even when its flash has been turned off, automatically determines if the flash is necessary by detecting the ambient brightness. (If it determines that the flash is necessary, the [ ] indication lights up in yellow.) When the  ([i]/[j]) indication or the [A] ([Ai]/[Aj]) indication is displayed, the flash can be lit. If the indication is flashing or not displayed, the flash cannot be lit. The available range of the flash is approx. 3 to 6 feet (1 to 2 m) in a dark place. Pictures will appear dark or reddish when they are recorded by using the flash at distances greater than 6 feet (2 m). When set [FLASH] >> [A] and the shutter speed, iris or gain is adjusted, the indication (either [A], [Ai], or [Aj]) may disappear and the flash may not be lighted. Using the flash fixes the shutter speed of 1/750 s or faster to 1/500. The picture may become out of focus in a dark place. If so, adjust the focus manually. The picture may appear dark if flash is lit in front of a white background. Set the flash to [ ] where using a flash is prohibited. Do not block the flash by hand or any other means.
Red eye phenomenon may appear depending on the recording conditions. Using the flash VW-FLH3 (optional) The flash permits still picture recording in a dark place 6 feet (2 m) or more distant from the subject. The available range of the flash is approx. 3 to 13 feet (1 to 4 m). When the flash becomes ready to flash, the  indication appears. The optional flash and the built-in flash cannot be used simultaneously. The brightness of the flash cannot be adjusted. The shutter speed, iris/gain, and white balance become fixed. Using the flash outdoors or with backlight or other bright conditions may result in white blotches (color blotches) on the pictures. If so, either adjust the iris manually or use the backlight compensation function, without using the flash. Carefully read the operating instructions for the flash.
You can record still pictures on a card using the timer. Set to Card Recording Mode. 1 Set [BASIC] >> [SELF TIMER] >> [YES]. 2 Press the [PHOTO SHOT] button.

Explanation of terms
Automatic white balance White balance adjustment recognizes the color of light and adjusts so the white color will become a pure white. The Camcorder determines the hue of light that comes through the lens and white balance sensor, thereby judging the recording condition, and selects the closest hue setting. This is called automatic white balance adjustment. However, since the Camcorder only stores white color information under several light sources, automatic white balance adjustment does not function normally under the other light sources.

Up to 999 pictures can be recorded on 100CDPFP folder etc. Files with the DPOF settings can be recorded on MISC folder. LCD monitor/Viewfinder LCD monitor When the LCD monitor gets dirty, wipe it with a dry soft cloth. In a place with drastic temperature changes, condensation may form on the LCD monitor. Wipe it with soft dry cloth. If your Camcorder is extremely cold, the LCD monitor is slightly darker than usual immediately after you turn the power on. However, as the internal temperature increases, it goes back to normal brightness. Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the LCD monitor screen featuring a total of approximately 113,000 pixels. The result is more than 99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. However, this is not a malfunction and does not affect the recorded picture. Viewfinder Extremely high precision technology is employed to produce the viewfinder screen featuring a total of approximately 113,000 pixels. The result is more than 99.99% effective pixels with a mere 0.01% of the pixels inactive or always lit. However, this is not a malfunction and does not affect the recorded picture. Periodical check-ups To maintain the highest image quality, we recommend replacing worn parts such as heads after approx. 1000 hours of use. (This, however, depends on operating conditions including temperature, humidity and dust.)
