Camera recording

Make sure that a power source and a cassette is inserted and that the START/STOP MODE switch inside the LCD panel is set to. When you use the camcorder for the first time, power on it and reset the date and time to your time (p. 33) before you start recording. The date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds after you start recording (AUTO DATE feature). This feature works only once a day. Before you record one-time events, you may want to make a trial recording to make sure that you are using the camcorder correctly.
(1) While pressing the small green button on the POWER switch, set it to CAMERA. (2) Turn STANDBY up. The STBY indicator appears in the viewfinder. (3) Press START/STOP. The camcorder starts recording and the STBY indicator changes to the REC indicator.

Several beeps also sound as a warning of any unusual condition of the camcorder. Note that the beep sound is not recorded on the tape. If you do not want to hear the beep sound, change the BEEP setting to OFF. Note on the AUTO DATE feature The clock is set to East Coast Standard Time at the factory. You can reset the clock. The AUTO DATE feature shows the date automatically once a day. However, the date may automatically appear more than once a day when: you reset the date and time. you eject and insert the tape again. you stop recording within 10 seconds.

Using the zoom feature

Zooming is a recording technique that lets you change the size of the subject in the scene. For more professional-looking recordings, use the zoom sparingly. T side: for telephoto (subject appears closer) W side: for wide-angle (subject appears farther away)

Zooming speed (Variable speed zooming)
Turn the power zoom lever fully for a high-speed zoom. Turn it lightly for a relatively slow zoom. When you shoot a subject using a telephoto zoom If you cannot get a sharp focus while in extreme telephoto zoom, move the power zoom lever to the W side until the focus is sharp. You can shoot a subject that is at least 2.6 feet (about 80 cm) away from the lens surface in the telephoto position, or 1/2 inches (about 1 cm) in the wide-angle position.

Notes on digital zoom

More than 13x zoom is performed digitally, and the picture quality deteriorates as you go toward the T side. If you do not want to use the digital zoom, set the D ZOOM function to OFF. The vertical bar in the power zoom indicator separates the digital zooming zone (right side of the bar [a]) and the optical zooming zone (left side of the bar [b]). If you set the D ZOOM function to OFF, the right side of the bar [a] disappears.
Shooting with the LCD screen
You can also record the picture while looking at the LCD screen. When using the LCD screen, the viewfinder turns off automatically. You cannot monitor the sound from the speaker during recording.

The LCD panel moves about 90 degrees to this side and about 210 degrees to the other side. To adjust the brightness of the LCD screen, turn the BRIGHT dial. The battery life is longer when the LCD panel is closed. Use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen to save the battery power.


To let the subject monitor the shot Turn the LCD panel over (p.21). Notes on the LCD panel When closing the LCD panel, turn it vertically until it clicks [a]. When turning the LCD panel, turn it always vertically; otherwise, the camcorder body may be damaged or the LCD panel may not close properly [b]. Close the LCD panel completely when not in use.
Hints for better shooting
For hand-held shots, youll get better results by holding the camcorder according to the following suggestions: Hold the camcorder firmly and secure it with the grip strap so that you can easily manipulate the controls with your thumb.
Place your right elbow against your side. Place your left hand under the camcorder to support it. Place your eye firmly against the viewfinder eyecup. Use the viewfinder frame as a guide to determine the horizontal plane.
You can record in a low position to get an interesting recording angle. Lift the viewfinder up for recording from a low position [a]. While recording in a low position, you can use the START/STOP button on the top of the camcorder or the power zoom button located on the front [b]. Note that you cannot change zooming speed using the front power zoom button. You can also record in a low position or even in a high position using the LCD panel [c].

(1) While pressing PUSH OPEN, open the LCD panel. (2) Press END SEARCH.
This function works when the POWER switch is set to either CAMERA or PLAYER.

The life of the battery pack
If the battery indicator flashes rapidly just after turning on the camcordrer with a fully charged battery pack, the battery pack should be replaced with a new fully charged one.

Charging temperature

You should charge batteries at temperatures from 50F to 86F (from 10C to 30C). Lower temperatures require a longer charging time. Sony Batteries are Recommended Use of non-Sony batteries may damage your Handycam camcorder.

Notes on charging

A brand-new battery
A brand-new battery pack is not charged. Before using the battery pack, charge it completely.

After long storage

Recharge the battery pack after a long period of storage. If the battery pack is charged fully but not used for a long time (about 1 year), it becomes discharged. Charge it again, but in this case the battery life will be shorter than normal. After several charging and discharging cycles, the battery life will recover its original capacity.

Notes on the terminals

If the terminals (metal parts on the back) are not clean, the battery charge duration will be shortened. When the terminals are not clean or when the battery pack has not been used for a long time, repeatedly install and remove the battery pack a few times. This improves the contact condition. Also, wipe the + and terminals with a soft cloth or paper.
Be Sure to Observe the Following
To prevent an accident caused by a short circuit, do not allow metal objects such as a necklace to touch the battery terminals. When carrying the battery pack, attach to the terminal cover. [b] Keep the battery pack away from fire. Keep the battery pack dry. Do not open nor try to disassemble the battery pack. Do not expose the battery pack to any mechanical shock.
Notes on the Battery Case
